First Ride: Fox 32 Float Gravel Fork, Easton EA70 wheels & Cinch Power Meter

For our first look on the new AX line from Fox and Easton we headed to the Fox HQ for a facility tour and look back on a bit of the history of the company.

Fox has a long history on the moutain side of things, from short travel forks to full suspension long travel and everything inbetween.

Fox got its start in motorsports but now over 55% of the business is on the pedal side of things.

We first sat down with the teams from Easton and Fox to discuss the new additions to the AX line.

Easton has been hard at work testing the new power meter with their sponsored athletes, ensuring that it will deliver consistent and accurate data. The Cinch system is very versatile and anyone that currently uses the system can simply purchase the new spindle and swap it out to have the advantages of power. For the EA70 AX wheelset, Easton has built the wheelset around the popular Arc 24 rim platform. The rim measures 24mm internal and 28mm on the external. The finished product is a $600 alloy wheelset that uses center lock hubs and can fit quick release and 12mm thru axle front and rear plus 15mm thru axle up front.

From Fox we got the new 32 Float 40mm Step-Cast AX Fork that not only resembles its 100mm big brother it is just a trimmed down version of it. Yes, Fox has chopped the stanchions down, added some volume spacers and a 45 mm offset.
