New EVOL Upgrade Kit for FOX Float shocks


(9/17/2010)

FOX EVOL Upgrade Kit

Of the many cool new products I saw at Haydays, one that really jumped out at me is the new EVOL Upgrade Kit for FOX Float Shox.

Designed, tested and built by FOX, the kit includes everything required to transform FLOAT or FLOAT 2 ski shocks into a FLOAT EVOL.

The FLOAT shocks that come on Sno Pro package Arctic Cats deliver stunning big-bump absorption and low weight, but the trade-off is that they're a bit too stiff over trail chop when they're calibrated for the big stuff.

The EVOL system lets the shock act plush over the small stuff, while retaining excellent damping during big hits. And it does this without body "roll" or a sacrifice in ride height.

If I were a high-powered Wall Street type who utilized a bunch of '90s lingo, I'd say the EVOL kit is a "win-win."

EVOL cap on the left, narrower stock cap on the right

Unlike the aftermarket EVOL kits I've seen, which utilize the stock end caps and thus try to force the air flow through the too-small schrader valve , the FOX EVOL kit has true EVOL end caps with hogged-out, high-flow air ports. (Look at the difference in width between the air-passage area of EVOL cap on the left, with the passage to the schrader valve on a stock FLOAT in the above photo.)

The kit even includes the all-important gold-anodized air caps and black/white decals to draw the adoration and attention of jealous friends.

The kit retails for $350. Shocks can be sent directly to FOX for the $40 installation, and places like Speedwerx and other FOX outlets also do the good deed. Probably going to be an option with some service-oriented dealers, too.

I'll be testing the upgrade kit this season on a F5 Sno Pro (I know, there’s no such production model, but I'm creating one via a set of FLOAT ski shocks), and will report what I learned. I'd also love to hear some feedback from anyone else who uses this kit.

Zaranee izvinyayus' za lastintiu. Na rabote postavit' kirrilitsu ne predstavlyaetsya vozmozhnim. Takzhe izvinyayus za anglitsizmi - zhivu v USA 15 let i ne znayu kak ix pravil'no perevesti na russkiy yazik.Teper' o krizise. Vinovati ne managera. Vinovati vse. Voz'mem kak primer mortgage crisis. Vinovata zhadnost' lyudey kotoraya pobudila ix pokupat' doma kotorie oni ne mogli sebe pozvolit'. Naprimer kogda ya pokupal kvartiru dva goda nazad, ya podschital chto s moyey zarplatoy i zarplatoy zheni my mozhem sebe pozvolit' kvartiru maksimum za $600,000. Bank dal nam kreditnuyu liniyu na $1.1MM. Neploxaya raznitsa, net? Kto vinovat? Zhadnost' banka kotoriy xochet sozdat' mortgage, i bistren'ko prodat' ego v pool of mortgage securities.Vinovata zhadnost' investitsionnogo banka kotoriy xochet zodat' pool of mortgage securities, razbit' na tranches, i pribil'no raskidat' po investoram. Vinovati zhadnie investori kotorie brosayutsya na tranches iz za bolee visokogo protsenta, ne analiziruya chto vnutri nego.Vinovati rating agencies kotorie visoko otsenivayut eti securities i delayut den'gi na otsenkax (ploxie otsenki = men'she deal flow)Vinovati otsenschiki moyey kvartiri kotorie zavisili ee stoimost' chtoby bank sdelal sdelku.Vinovata Clinton administration kotoraya sozdala Freddie Mac i Fannie Mae kotorie REZKO uprostili pravila predostavleniya kredita nekreditosposobnomu sloyu naseleniya. Vinovata Bush administration kotoraya bila 8 let u vlasti i nichego po etomu povodu ne sdelala. Esli est' ochen' strogoye regulation stock brokers chtobi oni ne obmanivali naselenie (naskol'no ono uspeshno eto drugoy vopros), to pochemu ne bylo regulation mortgage brokers, appraisers, and other real estate professionals?!A naschet aktsionerov.. pochemy oni ne trebovali bolee podrobnoy informatsii o svoix investitsiyax kogda oni rosli kazhdiy den', no stali plakatsya kogda vse nachalo stremitel'no padat'? Kogda u rabochix rosli pensionnie fondi do stratosfernix tsifr, nikto ne zadaval vopros - za za schet chego, sobstvenno? Vse byli slishkom zanyati pokupkoy HDTVs. A kogda nachalo padat' - pomogite nam, spasayte nas.Koroche vinovati ne manageri. Vinovati vse. Vinovata chelovecheskaya zhadnost' i strax.

I love Evol burritos. They have good igenedinrts and no preservatives or anything like that. I've had the beans and rice, chicken and rice, shredded beef, egg and potato and they are all delicious! http://zvicarusi.com [url=http://sokejdvkm.com]sokejdvkm[/url] [link=http://ctfoodlliqr.com]ctfoodlliqr[/link]

I'm sorry for posting here with my queitson but I couldn't find anywhere on evol to ask a queitson. I ate an Evol teriyaki bowl for the first time and absolutely loved it! IT was so awesome I had to check out your company. I bought the bowl to have a frozen dinner I could trust was healthy and didn't have preservatives or anything unhealthy. I have been reading the Evol's website and some of your blog and absolutely love your company and just wish I could live in Colorado and wish I was 30 years younger and get involved with your company.Anyway, on to my queitson. Could y'all please make some of your products gluten free. I have Ankylosing Spondylitis and I have found that eating gluten free really helps a lot with taking away pain. I believe your teriyaki bowl is gluten free but in looking at your burritos and flatbreads, I don't think they are gluten free. I would love to eat your flatbread meals but they have wheat in them. So, thanks so very much for your commitment to providing healthy foods for people but please think about us who need to eat gluten free. Thanks so much for your philosophies and I will promote your products with my friends here in Waukegan, IL, a Northern suburb of Chicago.

This was absolutely deiuclois. This was only my 2nd try at using the bread machine first try did not come out so good. I used agave nectar, 1/3 cup. The bread was sweet and the texture was perfect. I am making it again, this time using molasses, because agave is so expensive. I highly recommend this recipe. http://sxituf.com [url=http://ogymbabej.com]ogymbabej[/url] [link=http://gyvrzjhttfg.com]gyvrzjhttfg[/link]
