The original RXF36 fork had great reviews about the fantastic big hit control and class leading chassis performance but with some inconsistent feedback about small or medium impacts. The EVO upgrade gives you a super smooth feeling over small bumps and an increased sensitivity, all together it will be your true all mountain fork. On the small winding trails with roots and rocks it will help you keep momentum and control. Pointing your wheel down hill you will experience the unparalleled big hit control and traction of the original RXF 36 where the TTX dampening system together with the ramp up air chamber give you a lot of confidence.
The EVO upgrades to the RXF 36 Air 29 are:
- SKF seals for better performance in wet conditions and improved longevity
- Reworked piston for reduced breakaway force and more controlled pressure build up at higher shaft speeds
- Larger negative air chamber for better small bump sensitivity
- Adjusted bushing play to Enduro race team preferences
The TTX technology (twin tube design) enables parallel and separated oil flow and ensures optimal pressures at all times. Controlling the pressure levels ensures initial smoothness and allows the fork to stay high in travel with maintained bump absorption, traction and stability.
Everything is brought together by a unique forged crown for high stiffness and the highest tire control with less chassis flex.
Best of all for existing RXF 36 owner is that there is also an EVO-kit retro-fitable to older forks.
