 Dope fork, really light and great for all types of riding. Only thing is the lack of colours and it comes at 140mm. On the good side of things, it is easy to lower and they even say how to do it on their site which most companies are against. I have only ridden this fork a few times but everytime I ride it, it feels great because it makes the front end of the bike so light and easy to pull up, so things like manuals and hops are even easier than normal.

 I've ridden this fork on my dj trail and dh setup all at different heights and it does not disappoint. It's incredibly stiff and second to none in it's weight class. I've broken pikes/argyles/dj1s dirt jumping and this thing has taken some serious tumbles and still rocks. On my trail/dh setup I've launched 25 foot gaps with gnarly holed out landings and the whole way through the fork feels consistently smooth and dampened, just not linear. It's progressive for sure and doesn't bottom but that might be a con because you never get to see full travel without excessive sag. Bottom line is it's close to being the only fork you will ever need, for anything!

 Quite possibly the best AM fork out there, if you can afford it. Its plush, buttery smooth travel will keep you from smashing your face in and will flatter you with compliments as you flow along a track. It will make you feel like a superhuman and you'll love it for just that reason.

 Fox 36 Float R. At full travel it's an awesome Trail/AM/FR fork. Light enough to boast about but holds up to the shit too. Once you lower a 36 Float, You have arguably the most prime DJ fork ever made. Such an awesome fork for all uses.

 As for me it's the almost the best fork for END/FR.
160mm, rebound and stiffness are the cons. During all my rides I can't say a bad word about this fork and no presence of Talas regulators.

 Sick sick sick. Nothing this light feels this plush. I've never ridden an air fork that rides like this. It's hooked up to my Ellsworth Moment and it is a match made in heaven. Sweetness.

 This is the best fork I have ever ridden. It is super stiff through the rough stuff and does not hesitate on the fast stuff. the lockout is not missed!

 This is the best trail fork I have ever used. light, simple, reliable and the 20mm QR is great.
This is as light as an XC fork, with the balls for AM/FR. FOX 4 Life!!!

 Super light weight and plush. Quick release thru-axel works really well. Rebound adjustment knob comes off fairly easily, but fox will send you a new one for like 10 bucks.

 excelent fork. works very well as a super stiff dirt jump fork with the travel reduced.
provides a light and stiff alternative to the current dirtjump forks on the market

Fox Racing 36 Float R (MSRP $1350) — Fox designed this fork to be used by slopestyle and freeriders. 36mm stanctions for strength, and using the RC2 technology for reliability.

Specifications Compare to other Forks

Release Date 2009
Price $1,350
Weight 2127.34 g
Color Options White
Travel 160.02 mm
Travel - refers to the distance the wheel can move in respect to the frame. Typically measured in millimeters, most forks range from 80 to 203 mm of travel
Spring Air
Crown Single
Body Type unknown
Rebound Air spring pressure, Rebound
Rebound - is how quick your fork returns to a fully extended position after being compressed. Almost all after-market forks feature external rebound adjustment for easy fine tuning.
Stanchion material unknown
Steer Tube 1.125
Damping FIT
Damping - The process of absorbing the energy of impacts transmitted through the forks or rear shock during the compression stroke, and absorbing the energy of the spring during the rebound stroke.
DropOut Options 20mm
Compression no adjustment
Compression - This is the damping circuit that absorbs the compression energy force on the damper. Compression damping is used to adjust how quickly a fork or rear shock compresses when hitting a bump, and is adjustable on some products. When compression damping is too soft, this condition allows most of the available travel to be used without attaining control of the wheel. When it's adjusted too firmly, the wheel will jump or "dance" about when hitting small bumps, again failing to gain control of the wheel.
