Step into the ring for the Fox 38 vs RockShox Zeb bout. Two heavy hitting single crown forks designed to push the envelope of eMTB and aggressive enduro/trail shredders and bike park freeriders square up. Ever since we reviewed the Fox 38 several months ago and proclaimed it as the best fork we’d ridden, yet, we have been waiting to put this comparison together. Our testers rode many different Fox 38 and RockShox Zeb forks over the last six months, but most notably we put both forks on our dedicated test sled for some back to back comparisons on the same trails. By having one bike as a dedicated test sled we could isolate other variable like suspension platforms, varying shock life and tire pressure to give us the best chance of walking away from this test with educated impressions of the fork. Then, in the name of science, and to ensure we didn’t get a hot-rodded, customized fork with some special treatment from either of the brands, we also rode no less than three other Zeb and 38 forks on other test bikes we’ve received recently, all with similar findings. While both forks are undoubtedly capable and impressive, there is one that we would pick as our dream fork and this video explains why.
