I've been having a riot with the new 32 Taper-Cast Gravel Fork from FOX. This is the lightest suspension fork made by FOX and will massively extend the utility (and let's be honest, outright FUN) of your gravel bike. If you're a bit over getting rattled by a rigid ride this super compliant short travel fork will change your life (ok, in a small way. but still!).
It really shines on longer rides, reducing fatigue and keeping the riding fun. It also means that rough descents are no longer to be picked through cautiously, but rather rousted down with wild abandon!
Developed in conjunction with emergent gravel bike designs, the 32 Taper-Cast features a sleek drop crown profile and new knob shapes that drastically improve downtube clearance, for fitment on all frame sizes and styles. A sleek, reverse arch design further improves fitment, decreases frontal area for better aerodynamics and provides stiffness through the arch matrix design.
The lightest fork FOX has ever designed and fabricated, the incredible 1226g weight retains functionality such as integrated fender mounts, 160mm and 180mm flat mount compatibility. The fork also features our lightweight Kabolt thru-axle, and a longer steerer to allow for greater fitment options on gravel frames.
Equipped with FOX’s proven FIT4 or GRIP damper options, this lightweight package retains all the tunability of its mountain lineage, including adjustable travel options up to 50mm. The lightweight, short-travel optimized air spring requires fewer, if any, volume spacers and the design employs our lower leg air/oil bypass channels.
