Fox 34 CTD forks – Best bikes and gear of 2012

With their 34mm-diameter legs, the new Fox 34 forks strike the perfect balance for aggressive trail and all-mountain riding – stiffer than the skinnier Fox 32 and RockShox Revelation but lighter than the burlier 36 and Lyrik. Add the new super-simple CTD adjustment dial and Fox’s notoriously smooth stroke, and you’re onto a winner, and a well-deserved place on our ‘Best bikes and gear of 2012‘ wishlist.

Why we like them:

  • Less flexy than 32mm forks, without the full weight penalty of a 35mm or 36mm fork
  • Excellent damping
  • Easy-to-understand CTD adjustment
  • Choice of fixed-travel Float and adjustable TALAS versions
  • Available for 26in, 650b and 29in wheels

RRP: Varies depending on model. Prices start at US$990 / £900 for the 34 Float 160 FIT CTD
