Luftkappe Upgraded Piston Kit for Fox Float 34 and 36

Vorsprung Suspension Luftkappe Upgraded Piston Kit for Fox Float 34 and 36

Product Description

Introducing the Luftkappe air piston kit for Fox Float forks. The Luftkappe is available for:

34 Float NA2 (Performance, Performance Elite and Factory Series, 2016-17)
34 Float Evol (Performance, Performance Elite and Factory Series, 2018+)

36 Float NA (2015-17) Performance & Factory Series (max 180mm travel, min 120mm travel)
36 Float Evol (Performance, Performance Elite and Factory Series, 2018+)

 

Taking everything Vorsprung learned with the Corset air sleeves and the Luftkappe we developed for the Pike, Yari & Lyrik, this second generation Luftkappe is a new air piston assembly for Fox's 34 NA2/Evol and 36 Evol forks. User installable and simple to set up, the Luftkappe transforms a good fork into a great fork.

  • Softer initial stroke
  • Larger negative air chamber
  • Increased sag without the associated diving
  • Coil-like initial & mid-stroke spring rate without excessive bottoming
  • Increased sensitivity
  • Improved mid stroke support & control
  • Superior bump compliance and traction
  • Reduced hand fatigue
  • Reduces required compression damping
  • Retains volume spacer compatibility
  • Optional tools available for self-install

Pinkbike:
"The Luftkappe's change to the feel of the Lyrik was immediately noticeable on the trail. Traction was increased across chatter and the fork remained higher in its travel and more stable, improving the dynamic ride height without sacrificing the top end. My confidence soared when hitting sections with a lot of chatter and mid to large-sized hits, and the result meant more comfort and speed through such sections."

Can I install it myself?
Yes, provided you have access to the correct supplies and tools. If you're really crafty (and EXTREMELY careful) it is possible to install the Luftkappes (all Evol variants) without the installation tools, however the risk of damaging things is much higher and we really don't recommend trying. If you choose to take this route and damage your air shaft (or anything else), we cannot be held responsible - we make the tools available for a reason. It is not possible to install the 34 NA2 Luftkappe kit without 10mm shaft clamps and the bullet tool - you'll damage the shaft AND damage the seals on the new sealhead.


NOTE: IF YOUR 36 EVOL TOPS OUT NOTICEABLY, YOU WILL NEED TO REPLACE YOUR AIR SHAFT ASSEMBLY BEFORE PURCHASING THE LUFTKAPPE. FOX HAVE UPDATED THIS PART DUE TO THE TOPOUT ISSUES THAT MANY OF THE 2018 36 EVOL FORKS HAD. 34 FORKS DO NOT HAVE THIS ISSUE.

RELEVANT FOX PART NUMBERS FOR THE NEW AIR SHAFT ASSEMBLIES, BY TRAVEL:
180MM: 820-02-534-KIT
170MM: 820-02-535-KIT
160MM: 820-02-536-KIT
150MM: 820-02-537-KIT
140MM: 820-02-538-KIT
100MM (36 831): 820-02-539-KIT

IF YOUR FORK DOES NOT HAVE NOTICEABLE TOP-OUT ISSUES, YOU DON'T NEED TO REPLACE THE SHAFT BEFORE INSTALLING THE LUFTKAPPE.

"Fast delivery and service from TF tuned. I installed the luftkappe upgrade myself, which I have to say without a vice at home was a real pain. Everything was simple enough but trying to get the roll pin in to secure it to the air shaft was tricky. If you have a vice it would be simple. Since installing though my fork (fox 36 performance elite, Fit Grip) feels amazing. The small bump sensitivity is great, it even feels like its working on stony chatter amazingly. It also allowed me to run a few PSI lower as well which adds to this. Well worth it! "

"A great value upgrade to the Fox 36, really smooths out the small bumps, also gives a smooth initial suspension stroke. Front end feels much more compliant, and confidence inspiring. I did the installation without too many problem, the instructions were good from Vorsprung. Note: You need to also order the 2019 Fox Air shaft, lower service kit, and roll pin tool.. Good prompt next day delivery from TF Tuned "
