The mission of the Design & Innovation Award is to shape the bicycle world in a positive way. It also serves as a forum for creativity, visionary ideas as well as the industry’s most innovative products. More than 40 experts from 10 countries joined this year’s event to test, analyze and judge the best and most innovative products of 2016 in Kronplatz/San Vigilio – Dolomites. The Award recognises either outstanding product design and function, or innovation that sets a new standard and inspires future product generations and forward-thinking approaches.

Fox Suspension Factory Series 34 FLOAT 27.5


The latest version of the FACTORY Fox 34 Float fork brings high performance, maximum control, and the latest FIT4 damper to the trail sector. The FIT4 cartridge offers a three-position compression adjustment, faster recovery from repeated hits, and more support where it counts. The 15QR axle keeps handling precise, and for plus-size fans there is a Boost model that accommodates 27.5+ tyres up to 3.25” wide, while a 51 mm offset keeps the steering sharp. The chassis has been redesigned to offer improved accuracy, providing pin-sharp control and support to the trail market.
