GRIP X2 is the most tunable, supportive and smoothest descent-focused damper ever created by FOX. Riders reap the benefits of sitting higher in the travel while tires stay glued to the ground, cornering with increased traction. It gives you the confidence to push the limits of downhill and enduro racing, all while reducing overall rider fatigue.

A lightweight bolt-on floating axle, the Kabolt X shaves grams while increasing torsional stiffness via a sleeveless, single-sided pinch bolt design. Chassis alignment reduces unwanted friction between the upper and lower fork legs, providing much smoother suspension movement throughout the entire range of travel. The 36 is also available in a convenient tool-free quick-release lever floating axle.

Bleeders allow atmospheric pressure equalization at the push of a button. Lower leg bypass channels increase volume to alleviate pressure ramping as the fork moves through its travel. Both result in better fork performance by increasing small bump sensitivity and responsiveness.

The lower leg design of the 36 shaves every possible gram while maximizing stiffness and strength requirements of enduro and aggressive all-mountain riding.
