Go big, go fast, stay off the brakes and keep it wide open because Fox's 40 FIT RC2 is right there with you. Proven by the best DH riders in the world, the 40 comes out swinging with 203mm of titanium coil-sprung travel and a sub-7-pound weight to absolutely devour any downhill. Massive 40mm-diameter stanchions provide the ultimate in stiffness, while the tight turning radius and low axle-to-crown height keep your bike responsive and maneuverable. Separately adjustable high- and low-speed compression and rebound allow you to perfectly tune your settings and there's hydraulic bottom-out resistance in the damper for when things get really big. And, the 40 sports a 20mm through-axle for precise steering and supreme rigidity.
For the best suspension yet, Fox has brought Miyaki Company of Japan’s legendary Kashima Coat to its fork stanchions. You can recognize it by the unique gold color. This coating, which is four times harder than hard-anodized aluminum, made its name in car and motorcycle suspensions and drivetrains, and now you can enjoy all its amazing benefits. These include super low friction, excellent abrasion resistance and durability, and significantly better lubrication characteristics. In short, this fork is way more reactive, soaks up even tiny bumps and lasts longer with less maintenance, too.
