Fox Suspension has officially announced a voluntary recall on all Float X2 shocks sold and distributed before September 2016. This voluntary recall involves all model year 2016 and some 2017 FLOAT X2 bicycle rear shock absorbers sold both individually and installed on YT, Giant, Pivot, Intense, Ibis, Scott, Trek, GT, Knolly, Norco, Rocky Mountain, Diamondback, Morpheus, Foes Racing, Orbea, and Canyon full-suspension mountain bikes and frames. The solid black or black and gold FLOAT X2 shocks have an air sleeve construction. FLOAT X2 is printed on the external reservoir connected to the blue compression and red rebound adjusters that have X2 and RVS laser etched on them. Recalled shocks do not have a “250 psi max” label directly under the air fill boss on the outer sleeve of the shock. If you have one of the affected 6,100 shocks then please either bring it by the shop or go to http://www.ridefox.com/2016/content.php?c=floatx2recall and initiate the recall process yourself.
Fox will be repairing all affected shocks with a newly designed air can which will feature a set screw to prevent the shock from rupturing under too much air pressure.
