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 FLOAT X2


The Fox Suspension Factory Series FLOAT X2 brings true coil-like sensitivity and control to the air shock market, and has even won WC DH races. The new RVS damping recirculates the oil smoothly through the adjustable high- and low-speed compression and rebound circuits, providing sublime small bump sensitivity with a seamless transition into big impact absorption. The ultra-low breakaway force finds every last shred of traction, and support and control when on the limit is class-leading. The X2 will become the racers’ favourite in 2016!
