Make Your Natural Selection 

The FLOAT series of air shocks enters its latest stage of evolution with four category-optimized options for XC, Trail, All-Mountain and Gravity.

Mountain biking has evolved. So have air shocks. Choose the FLOAT that best pairs with your riding style.

The all-new FLOAT SL: Ultra light. Ultra fast. XC Race ready: As its name suggests, the FLOAT SL is the smallest and lightest shock in our lineup, offering exceptional pedaling efficiency and optimized performance for XC riding and racing. With an all-new main piston, valving, and IFP (Internal Floating Piston), FLOAT SL delivers improved traction, consistent damping, and a wider range of adjustability to suit modern riders’ preferences.

FLOAT SL MSRP: $349-$519 USD

The all-new FLOAT: The ultimate balance of XC weight and Trail capability: Designed to meet the demands of weight-conscious Trail riders, FLOAT boasts a firm and efficient pedaling platform to power up the climbs combined with confidence-inspiring, trail-gripping descending capability rivaling its bigger, more aggressive sibling, FLOAT X – which it shares damper technology with. FLOAT’s in-line configuration, however, contributes to a remarkable 150-gram weight savings over FLOAT X and saves precious frame space for things like water bottles, spares, or tools. With enhanced tuning options and precise damping control, the all-new FLOAT is the ideal lightweight yet high-performance trail shock.

FLOAT MSRP: $349 – $499 USD

FLOAT SL and FLOAT join our FLOAT family, supported for All Mountain and Gravity with FLOAT X and FLOAT X2:

  • FLOAT X: Optimized for Trail and All Mountain, but capable of conquering any terrain with confidence
  • FLOAT X2: Super capable and hyper-tunable Gravity-focused shock.
