FLOAT SL

FEATHERWEIGHT PERFORMANCE

FLOAT SL inherits the internals of its FLOAT AND FLOAT X siblings then streamlined to save every gram possible. A remote or 3-positon switch lets riders toggle between open, medium and firm mode settings for the most efficient power transfer from the pedals. Whether tackling World Cup XCO courses or full-day marathon races, FLOAT SL offers higher performance and a wider range of tuneability than previously seen in lightweight MTB shocks.

OPTIMIZED TO RACE

With a proven EVOL air spring and a form factor to fit a wider variety of XC and Trail bikes, FLOAT SL offers the ultimate suspension efficiency for riders pushing their potential. Race entry fees not included.

“Factory” says it all – feature-packed and designed to exceed the demands of our Factory-level riders. What we sell is what they race. Factory Series products feature slippery smooth, ultra-durable Genuine Kashima Coat.
