Modern gravel bikes are more capable than ever, and those riding them are pushing well beyond what most of us imagine when we picture gravel roads. Within the last few years, we’ve seen gravel suspension fork released by Suntour, MRP, and Rockshox, so it was only a matter of time before Fox joined in with the announcement of the Fox 32 Taper-Cast Gravel Fork. It replaces the old 32 AX with new tapered legs, more tire clearance, and an optimized short travel air spring.
The Fox 32 Taper-Cast Gravel Fork is equipped with Fox’s proven FIT4 or GRIP damper, maintaining the same tunability options found in their mountain bike fork lineup. It has a drop crown profile and new knob shapes that they claim drastically improve downtube clearance and widen compatibility. The new fork sports integrated fender mounts, 160mm and 180mm flat mount compatibility, and adjustable travel options up to 50mm. Here are some additional specs that Fox included in the press release.
