 So damn light, and simple inside. Yet the simplicity works, and damn well at that. The RC2 damper is brilliant and the adjustability helps you fine tune the fork with every terrain change. The FiT Damper is a huge improvement as well. There's much less wallowing of the travel throughout mid stroke. Meaning they hug the bike in the corners. Yet they don't lose their sensitivity.

 stiff, light,

the rc2 is useless. mine's been serviced 2 times a year and finally was tuned by a suspension specialist but the rc2 damper in the 07 still remains useless. its the same across the board. i've had 4 36s and a 40 to make myself sure of the false advertising.

 Классная вилка! Несмотря на то, что требует к себе пристального внимания, отличается превосходной обработкой, как мелких неровностей, так и приличных дропов, обладает широким диапазоном настроек отскока и компрессий, а воздушная пружина облегчает натсройку сега + ко всему наделена плюшевостью! А торсионная жёсткость впечатляет! Вилка для всего: треила, ФР, ДХ

 Slapped a 2010 on my trail bike a few months ago. Fork feels so much better than the revelation I had on there before, is more stiff and nearly as light with 20mm more travel. I've since ridden it on everything from mini DH to full blown XC. It works well.

 Running at 80mm, sick as hell, stiff and light! small bump sensitivity? what small bump sensitivity, 150psi means these are pretty much solid, its what i like and thats what it will stay, but im sure if the pressure was lower the small bump sensitivity would be amazing.

 fantastic at 100mm, so smooth and stiff, really light too. Best fork I've ever had. I use it mainly for dirt jumping and street riding but im suure it would be just as at home on the xc circuit or behind the 4x start gate.

 Early days yet, only just fitted them to my 08 GT force 1.First impressions are:
1.Bloody light as !!
2.Beautifully constructed fork.
3.Highly adjustable and laterally stiffer than a sailor after 6 months at sea!!

 Best 36 fork i've run by a long way (2009), i find them even smoother than the vanilla and of course they are so easy to tune being air. If only rear air shocks could get as close to a coil as these are!

 Just simply a great fork. Burly and in a decent weight range for the 36mm stanchions. Very easy to maintain, rebuild and lower.

Fox Racing 36 Float RC2 (MSRP $1570) — 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 $1,570
Weight 2168.17 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 low speed, and high speed compression.
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.
