Just shy of two weeks ago, we caught our first glance of a prototype Fox AX “Adventure Cross” suspension fork aimed at the gravel and off-road drop bar set. Now, we’re getting a full look, courtesy of frame builder Chris McGovern’s Instagram. The difference is, that first one was clearly labeled as a prototype, but this one’s missing that sticker, suggesting it’s ready to roll.
Zoom in and you’ll see it’s sporting a 15×100 axle and the same indented lowers as their 32SC Step Cast XC fork. Travel, we’re guessing, maxes out at 60mm, but there’s no telling for sure just yet. A fork like this certainly seems aimed at a more aggressive “adventure” ride and bike than a pure gravel bike, and maybe even the touring crowd. Based on the comments on this photo, McGovern’s planning a suspension corrected adventure gravel road frame for it. While we’re waiting to see, check out our pre-NAHBS interview with Chris, here.
