Since 1974, Bob Fox's Fox Racing Shox company has been producing high performance shock absorbers for sports-focused recreational vehicles. As of 2010, Fox's line-up includes nearly 50 different types of shocks for ATVs, mountain bikes and sports motorcycles. Each model has its own individual specifications, which may change over time as the line-up evolves. In addition to their standard offerings, the company also makes shocks for off-road cars and trucks, recreational utility vehicles and snowmobiles.

ATV Shocks

All-terrain vehicle shocks make up the bulk of the Fox Shox product line. The company's race-focused ATV shocks include 4.6-pound ultra-lightweight Float X Evol shocks and Podium X shocks, which feature steel-bodied construction, velocity-sensitive damping controls and 5/8-inch finished chrome shafts. Fox also offers a Podium X model shock absorber with a remote reservoir. For recreational ATVs, Fox's Float X shocks feature aluminium piggyback construction, low friction Samurai Sealing Systems and Teflon-lined spherical bearings. The similar Float R adds an internal floating piston to these specifications. Ultra-lightweight Float shocks also come in mini-quad models. Fox Podium Shocks for utility vehicles have 47-millimeter steel bodies and chrome silicon dual and single springs.

Bike Shocks

Fox Shox's 2011 mountain bike shock absorber line-up includes the Float, DHX Air, DHX and Van RC series. Float shocks weigh .20.9 Kilogram and feature a boost valve, air springs and an angled air valve position while DHX Air shocks are a bit heftier at .44 Kilogram. These shocks have adjustable bottom-out resistance, air spring pressure, tuning range and rebound. Standard DHX shocks have forged eyelets and an increased shaft size, relying on a spring coil. Coil-springed Van RC bike shocks weigh in at .38.6 Kilogram and feature speed-sensitive compression and rebound damping.

Motorcycle Shocks

Fox's line of motorcycle shocks cater toward big and small bikes in Supercross, Arenacross and Motocross competitions. The company's line encompasses the Podium RC2, Podium RC3 and Float MXR series of shocks. Podium RC2 shocks rely on spring coils and feature a 37-millimeter anondized aluminium body with a hard chrome shaft and sensitive damping control. The Podium RC3 upgrades this model with the addition of adjustable bottom-out control, a Fast Adjust Spring Technology -- or F.A.S.T. -- preload device and a dual compression adjuster. The air-spring Float MXR shocks feature ultra-lightweight construction, a Samurai Sealing System, self-adjust air-negative springs and an internal floating piston.
