Fox launching online suspension ‘academy’

Site covers off-road suspension for Jeeps, pickups, motorcycles and even mountain bikes


Off-road suspension specialist Fox Factory has launched Fox Academy, which it says is “a multimedia education site designed to teach the language of vehicle suspension for Jeeps, trucks, UTVs, snowmobiles, motorcycles and mountain bikes.”

Fox promises its video series will cover shock basics, terminology, the difference between stock and Fox shocks, forks “and much more.”

For a preview, see this video:

“Fox Factory users and fans are always engaging with the brand at special events and picking the brains of FOX Factory engineers, asking for insight on how their shocks work and how to optimize their suspension,” the company said in its announcement. 

“These conversations led the Fox Factory family to think about how people can easily learn about Fox Factory shock technology by delving into the topics virtually. 

Fox Academy takes on the hard questions and isn’t afraid of complex answers. Wondering how those new shocks work? Question answered. Too intimidated to open up that damper? Fox Academy can help.

Fox does shocks for a variety of vehicles

“Most enthusiasts know when an upgraded shock or fork is needed for their desired driving or riding style, but they may not know the proper replacement shock or fork to obtain the results they need to match the terrain and their driving or riding ability. 

“Fox Academy teaches how the parts work — but more importantly — why, when, and how to adjust their suspension to gain the most enjoyment from their experience.”
