 Awesome fork, i have ran the 05, 07 and 09 Fox 40 forks, and they never disappoint for freeride or DH riding/racing. Super easy to service by yourself, and very predictable, its one of the few products out there that really inspires confidence, and it will make you a better rider. They are a bit pricey new, but you can always find sales on them, or find a very nice slightly used one in the 500-700 range.

 you can´t do something wrong by buying this one!
Very reliable, okay, needs some service sometimes in order to work perfect, but when you take care of maintaining it really is an awesome fork.
Got one out of the box along with my trek, just changed the springs (softer ones) and now it has also a wide range concerning compression stroke!

 I have the 09' model, such a sick fork, so buttery smooth and plush. I dont know why rumor has it that it constantly needs seals and rebuilt, ive only had to do seals once and ive had it for nearly 9 months now.If you can afford one buy one!its amazing, so adjustable, the only con is that it clicks like all fox 40's though,a simple fix is to pull out the spring and get it fully shrinkwraped. Best fork ive ever ridden though.

 recently switched to 40RC2's from boxxer WC's and the first thing i noticed immediately was the immense stifness they give.

not only do they have loads of adjustment so they can be set up for any track, but they also give you confidence to ride any track.

they'll plough through anything.

 I like the well thought of details and the simplicity. I loooove the looks!!! Awesomely smooth feel.
Downsides are too little progression- I bottom out all too easily- and there's only one titanium springrate version- so if your average height and weight you'll need to run a steel spring adding a lot of weight to your bike.

 The best fork i have ever owned so much adjustment you can dial them in to wherever you ride, Very plush and super strong, On the downside you have to keep them clean and maintain them slightly more than there rivals rockshox.

 Great adjustments, can dial the fork in to whatever the course demands. Stiff! Never felt this fork flex once. Easy to service, when it requires servicing.

The stock spring needs a bit more progressiveness. Should be a stiffer spring for the last 2" of travel to prevent bottoming it out.

 They do what they are supposed better than other forks... simple as that. Light, stiff, reliable and very easy to work on. The high and low speed compression adjust enable you to get the fork to behave just how you want it to for you riding style/terrain choice. Very stable, good small bump performance whilst very controlled at high speed through rock gardens and big drops. They give the bike an amazing level of grip up front is set up correctly.

 I have a 2006 fox 40, and it is prime. With the high and low speed compression, you can dial it in to your specific wants and needs, and it is sure to deliver. The only mentionable con is that it is wise to have it rebuilt every season(or even more often, depending on how often you ride) in order to keep things sound. Really, that isnt that big of a deal, as most high end forks require this as well.

 Fox 40RC2

The Fox 40 RC2 was designed to be the lightest and strongest Downhill fork made. The oversized 40mm stanchions and huge lower legs give the 40 unparalleled stiffness for incredible steering precision and low stiction performance.

The left stanchion contains the titanium coil/oil spring with external spring preload adjustment. In the right stanchion you'll find Fox's proprietary externally adjustable dual-speed, position-sensitive damper as well as externally adjustable rebound. The Internal Travel Spacer System provides adjustability from 8 to 6 inches in half-inch increments, letting the rider adjust the travel to the terrain requirements.

The 40 has a stepped 20mm thru-axle allowing the lower leg to settle into a lower friction point and Fox worked with disc brake manufacturers to develop a new Downhill disc brake standard, which creates a lighter and stiffer way to mount up a caliper for DH rotor applications. From its low axle to crown height, to its exceptional lock-to-lock turning radius, no detail was left untouched. At under 7 pounds the 40 weighs in as the new heavyweight world champion

 this fork is amzing at what it does. the fork is so smooth when hitting bumps to. to me it is very easy to adgust. the downside to it is that u have to change the seals once in a while because oil starts to leak out of them. they are a hassle to change them to because u would have to take the fork apart.

 great tunability, reliability, and looks mean.
i like that this fork can be lowered to 6inches with just a simple rebuild.
its also pretty damned light with the ti spring, and thats the stock spring. its like there is a privateer dh racer driving things behind the scenes.
the customer support i have recieved from fox has been nothing short of phenomenal.
need spacers? they send em. need advice, they send it, need a rebuild at the race, give dude like ten minutes. blew your shock during practice, heres a new one. just great people all around, and a racing pedigree that actually counts for something outside of bikes, and now inside of bikes!
Great!

 Looks amazing. And has the adjustability and plushness to back it up. If you don't think yours is plush enough or maybe its too plush, you can just get another spring. These forks can be tuned to suit any conditions. When adjusted correctly for rider weight these forks are hands down the best forks I have ever ridden. I just had to shell out for the 2009 version. Plus I have a black v10, and the white forks contrast perfectly with my color scheme. If I had enough money to shell out on BOS, or Manitou, or any of the higher end forks, I would probably still stay with Fox. Just reliable and awesome.

 Such a sweet fork. I have the 08 and coming off my old Boxxer, these are SO stiff. Relyable with good progressive travel. I managed to bottom them out in the FOD car park, but not on the DH run. With a bit of fine tuning, these are the best forks money can buy. If you get the oppotunity to get some, GET THEM!

 honestly the best feeling fork ive ever ridden! does not flex much and is overall very stiff. ya its the not lightest fork available, but overall your gaining the reliablility of one of the best and most advanced suspension manufactures to this day. i ran the boxxer wc and it just gave me problems all the time. the adjustability is very noticable and they all have there own purpose. you need to know how to set up suspension to get them working good though. overall i will continue using fox as my #1 fork company. GREAT JOB FOX!
P.S. it looks bitchin on any bike too!

 This honestly is the best fork I've ever ridden. PROS- It feels amazing and is super adjustable. It is so plush and it is smooth through all of its travel. There is no stiction as found on many other comparable forks. CONS- It requires constant up keep to keep it feeling prime. If you are looking for a fork to ride with little or no maintenance this probably isn't the fork for you. -- Overall I would recommend this fork to any one who wants the best feeling fork possible and doesn't mind the extra up keep associated with this high level of performance. Defiantly worth the price.

 Super strong, super plush, looks spanking awesome, got a pair and they work regardless of what they have been through, taco-ed a front wheel, thought i had fully broken them, twisted, wrenched, the works, got it back to the shop, a new oil change and some adjustments of the crowns and they were working like new again. Really solid forks and different to the boxxers yet still perform equally as good if not better in certain situations.

 One of the best forks I've riddn. It's everything you want in a Race DH fork, but the weight! Has no problem working in sub zero temperatures. Low and High speed compretions work like a charm. It does require maintainence more often than other forks, but it is worth it!

 Awesome fork, been riding it since start of 08. It tracks really well, especially in corners. It is fairly light, but still has the benefits of a coil sprung fork. Very smooth feeling with almost no stiction. I lowered it to 7.5" which is nice if you want a lower front end. Only problem could be the price, but it is comparable to other high end DH forks, and definitely worth it.

 This Fork is SUper Smooth and it has the power to save you when you make a mistake on a technical section or over a boulder. It soaks up all the hits and really makes the ride feel like your on a Cadillac. For my DH Bikes This is always going to be my choice Smile

 Yes these forks are expensive and they have very short service intervals but they are the smoothest forks i've ever had (i've owened both the original 09 versions and the now have the 2012 kashima coated FIT RC2 versions). they don't weigh anywhere near as much as they look like they should and track as if the bike were on tracks.

 I currently have two bikes with this fork installed on them, and I love everything about it. I've read a lot of posts about people complaining about the amount of maintenance required on them, and I find that it is just not true. All high end, race worthy suspension components will require maintenance, but the 40 has been nothing out of the ordinary. The extent of adjustments that can be made to the ride quality of this fork set it apart from the rest, and I certainly would recommend it to anyone who values riding a well balanced fork.

 Amazing suspention platform. Fully in my mind the best race fork on the market. super smooth, supper plush, and like all fox forks, amazing quality control. felt like i was riding on cloud 9 everytime i got off the lift. amazing.

 the fork is amazing, stiff reliable light looks good too. the only bad thing is that you have to change the oil every 200 hours of riding but it only takes 15 mins to do so. don't forget to turn them upside down after every ride to allow the oil to soak into the bushings and foam rings. hope that helped

 This fork Is the smoothest expert from the 2011 ones I have ever ridden and I have ridden 2010 Rock Shox WC, 888's. However I do like the idea of the WC with the adjustments and the solo air chamber if Fox did that this would be the best fork ever. The 40mm stanchions are super strong meaning no flex. And soaked up any small bump. I highly recommend them. If anyone is debating RS WC or these get these or the 2011 ones

 def a different feel from the boxxers
still in set up stage but may got to lighter than stock spring for my 165lbs
180 w/gear. super stiff on small stuff despite l/c adj. not to important but gets alittle busy in low speed techies( roots and rock) but seems good at speed makes air pressure in tires seem more critical

Specifications
Price $1600
Weight 3084.42 g
Color Options White or Black Diamond
Travel 203 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 Coil
Crown Dual
Body Type Magnesium
Rebound external rebound, Titanium spring, hydraulic bottom out 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 40mm Aluminum
Steer Tube 1.125
Damping RC2 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.
Compare to other Forks

Fox Racing 40 RC2 (MSRP $1600) - Fox's most renowned fork, the Fox 40. 40mm stanctions mean its extremely stiff, and a sub 7 pound weight means its light weight. Built to be bomb proof, the 40 is ready to be abused.

 It's a 40. Enough said. Althooough; super plush, completely adjustable and it does an amazing job of resisting pedal bob.

Fox Racing 40 RC2 (MSRP $1600) — Fox's most renowned fork, the Fox 40. 40mm stanctions mean its extremely stiff, and a sub 7 pound weight means its light weight. Built to be bomb proof, the 40 is ready to be abused.

Specifications Compare to other Forks

Release Date 2009
Price $1,600
Weight 3084.42 g
Color Options White or Black Diamond
Travel 203 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 Coil
Crown Dual
Body Type Magnesium
Rebound external rebound, Titanium spring, hydraulic bottom out
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 40mm Aluminum
Steer Tube 1.125
Damping RC2 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.
