2024 All New FOX MY25 Fork Dampers: The Next Generation of Grip SL, Grip X, and Grip X2


2024 All New FOX MY25 Fork Dampers: The Next Generation of Grip SL, Grip X, and Grip X2

For the past 50 years, Fox has been pushing suspension design and in 2024 FOX is launching three new dampers—each engineered from the ground up—that represent the pinnacle of suspension performance. Announced today, the GRIP X2 for ultimate descending performance, The GRIP X for uncompromised all-mountain traction, and the GRIP SL, the lightest XC damper with unparalleled ride feel…

Grip SL XC/Downcountry Riding and Racing (32 TC, 32 SC, 34 SC)

In the world of endurance racing, every gram counts. With the Grip SL, we created a short travel-specific damper that not only reduced weight but could keep up with increasingly demanding World Cup XCO and XCM races. The Factory 32 Step-Cast weighs just 1161 grams.

Lockout performance is paramount on the Grip SL; firm for hammering pedals during a sprint while maintaining a smooth blowoff force when you hit a bump with lockout engaged. This reduces fatigue and conserves rider energy. When the compression adjuster is in Middle or Open mode, riders experience a supple stroke in the early stages of the travel with an optimized pedal-to-bump efficiency.

When it’s time to climb, simply rotate the high-speed compression adjuster clockwise until you feel the final distinct click. At that point, GRIP X simultaneously closes both high and low-speed compression, allowing a firm platform for efficient power transfer to the pedals. Before dropping in, back the high-speed adjuster off to the desired setting and descend with all the added traction and predictability, without compromise.

Grip X2 Trail, Enduro, DH Riding and Racing (36, 38, 40)

To create the ultimate descent-focused damper, Fox sought the level of tunability seen in motocross and supercross racing suspension. The brand’s award-winning GRIP 2 damper had a 20mm base diameter and seven valves. GRIP X2 scaled up the tunability by increasing the base diameter to 24mm with 23 valves. The result is the most tunable, supportive and smoothest descent-focused damper ever created by FOX.
