For more than three decades, FOX has been the industry leader in the design and development of high-performance shock absorbers and racing suspension products for snowmobiles, mountain bikes, motorcycles, ATVs, UTVs, and off-road cars and trucks. Now FOX has redefined ride dynamics for today’s sport UTVs with its new 2.5 inch Podium X aluminum body shock.
The UTV market has exploded in the last five years. Enthusiasts have pushed manufacturers to build vehicles that go faster, fly higher, and charge through nasty desert terrain like never before. While factory shock packages are great for most riders, hardcore enthusiast and racers often need more.
With FOX 2.5 inch Podium X aluminum shocks, you can redefine your limits and go faster and higher with more control.
Robust 2.5 Inch Body
The new shock has a 6061-T6 smooth bore seamless aluminum body. The larger body allows for greater damping force capability while allowing the shock to run at lower overall temperatures. The 2.5 inch aluminum body allows a 50 percent increase in the piston area, which allows the shock to do more work with lower internal pressures, less heat, and greater durability.
Simple Dual-Speed Compression (DSC) Adjustment
With DSC, you can adjust the shock’s high- and low-speed compression damping by simply turning the external adjusters. The Podium X’s DSC allows you to maximize small bump compliance and traction while still having the extra damping required for big hits.
The high-speed compression adjuster affects compression damping mainly during medium to fast suspension movements such as steep jump faces, harsh flat landings, and aggressive whoops.
The low-speed compression adjuster impacts compression damping mostly during slow suspension movements like G-outs or smooth jump landings. It also affects wheel traction and the harshness or plushness of the vehicle.
Quick and Adjustable Rebound Damping
FOX’s new UTV shock allows for personalized rebound damping adjustment. Rebound damping controls the rate at which the shock returns after it has been compressed. The ability to make adjustments as the load, riding style, and terrain change is key to staying in control.
Bottom-Out Control (B.O.C) Technology
FOX’s B.O.C. technology provides extra resistance against harsh bottom-outs. As the Podium X shock is compressed, a secondary piston enters the bottom-out cup in the final 25 percent of travel to produce up to 3,000 pounds of additional damping force.
Without this, riders are forced to run a much stiffer setup to absorb a large impact. The technology allows Podium X shocks to be tuned to give improved small bump control in the upper portion of the stroke, while still maintaining the ability to absorb huge impacts and landings effectively.
Race-Run Dynamics For Every Ride
With the larger capacity, ability to absorb huge impacts, and all of the adjustability found in FOX’s new 2.5 inch Podium X shock, you can take your UTV to the next level. Whether you’re racing WORCS, Best in the Desert, or just charging through huge whoops in the sand, the new 2.5 inch Podium X shock will take you there with more control, comfort, and durability.
