Big ups & big downs. All mountain & all day. With a killer new dual-mode, dual-travel shock, and Ai- driven, all-mountain attack geometry, the all-new Trigger lives for big days in the big mountains, where sustained efforts lead to sublime rewards. Built for those ready to go all-out & all-in.
The potent combo of slack 66 head tube angle, short stays and steep seat angle gives the Trigger drop-eating stability. Flickable agility and climb-crushing abilities, all in one confident machine.
The new dual mode Gemini rear shock opens a world of all-mountain possibilities at the flick of a switch. It’s pure Fox performance, with an extra kick.
Only Asymmetric Integration (Ai) can deliver short stiff stays with no downside. Incredible agility and traction plus a stiffer, stronger rear wheel and big tire mud clearance - that’s the Ai magic.
Ai delivers some of the shortest stays on the trail for climb-crushing traction and unreal agility, while preserving max tire clearance and frame stiffness.
Co-developed with Fox, the Gemini system adds two ride modes (Hustle & Flow) to the killer performance of Fox shocks. Flip to Hustle to shorten the travel and ramp up the spring rate for a snappier, more responsive feel for pumping through turns, sprints and traction-challenged climbs. Flip back to Flow for full Fox travel when things get rough.
CARBON LINKFull carbon link for full advantage. Available on all models. Lighter and stiffer than alloy. No expense spared.
MODULAR CABLE ROUTINGNo matter your preference, trigger provides the cleanest option for literally every need under the sun. 1x, 2x, di2, rear shock remote and of course, dropper.
ROOM FOR WATERSpace for 24oz bottle keeps water off your back for those days you need a bit extra in the tank.
PERFECTLY TUNED SUSPENSIONDialed frame kinematics keep the suspension active and the rider in a level, neutral position under braking for wicked control.
BALLISTEC CARBONProprietary carbon construction tuned by our own engineers for precise balance, lightness, stiffness and durability.
CARBON DOWN TUBE PROTECTORThis replaceable carbon down tube shield protects your ride from rock strikes and bad days.
LOCKR PIVOTSOur very own lockr thru-axle pivot system creates a rock solid connection between both sides of the swing arm and the main frame for instantaneous response. No twist, no flex and no special tools required.
