Engineered specifically for 4X, Dirt Jump, and Dual Slalom and their high demand on equipment, the new 831 is based on our 32 mm platform, FLOAT Air Spring technology, and the FIT RLC Damper. The 831's FIT RLC damper is valved with firmer high-speed compression damping and new low-speed compression needle and circuit, to maximize pedaling efficiency when sprinting out of the start gate and absorbing large jump landings. The FLOAT air spring has been optimized to provide more progression, and push back on the rider during high cornering loads. Factory travel is set at 100 mm and is internally adjustable to both 110 and 120 mm for optimal crown-to-axle height tuning. The 831 chassis has increased stiffness at this travel via the use of FOX's longer-travel chassis components normally found on the 32 FLOAT and TALAS forks. The 831 also benefits from Kashima Coat, which significantly reduces stanchion friction for improved feel and durability.
