We designed the coil-sprung mountain shocks with two primary objectives: weight reduction and ride performance. FOX optimizes the 1.5 ZERO coil-sprung shocks through material reduction without a sacrifice of ride quality or structural integrity. Additionally, the coil springs were redesigned to retain the same spring rate but with fewer coils and built from a lighter steel alloy. The shocks maintain a linear feel regardless of temperature fluctuation, which keeps your sled setup quick and simple. The new coils result in a spring with the same performance at half the weight.
FOX’s position-sensitive damping technology, with origins in desert truck racing, is now applied to the Factory Race Series coil-sprung shocks. Spiral grooves inside the shock allow the oil to flow around the main piston reducing damping force in the ride zone for a plush feel. The bypass grooves terminate through the final 30% of the travel, forcing oil to only flow through the main piston and providing a significant increase of bottom-out resistance to cushion any hard hits. Our goal was to inspire confidence next time you send it big thanks to the extra support.
Maximize the power-to-weight ratio of your sled by bolting on FOX’s new mountain shocks.
