Fox Racing Shox Use Slick Technology in 2011
Fox Shox will receive a new treatment in 2011, a gold colored Kashima Coat by Miyaki Company located in Japan. We have seen the Kashima coating used on motorcycles and cars, but due to the technology of low friction plus combating wear and tear, Fox will use it on the suspension forks and shocks.
The Fox Racing Shox Kashima Coat for 2011 was race tested in 2009 by select riders, and in fact the Fox Racing Shox sponsored riders took home wins using the Kashima Coat suspension, which includes four world cup wins, Men’s and Women’s British National Downhill Championship, and World Championship victory by Jared Graves who rides for Yeti and Fox. Overall, durability has been added to the shox, but Fox has said a decrease in friction was noticed, which in turn added a increase in suspension performance.
