Fox Forks : Evolution or Performance – will I notice the difference
I found the Evolution CTD on the Gyro that I tested a bit disappointing. In Trail it was too harsh, but in Descend to blew through the travel too easily. I found myself wishing for a softer Trail setting. As I understand it, you get 3 trail setting with the performance version, so that’s the way I’d go.Posted 4 years agojairajSubscriber
Just had a look on their website and its the Factory models that have the trail adjust feature. They also get the Kashima coating too.
Fox website: “Performance Series and Evolution Series forks share the same CTD lever.”
Can’t really see what the difference between Performance and Evolution is ethier.

buying aftermarket or spec’d on a bike?
IIRC, evolution is open bath, performance is open bath only in float 36 i think, oem factory is fit, aftermarket factory is kashima’d FIT
If you’re buying a bike spec’d with forks.. consider also the component upgrade.
e.g. Scott Genius 720 comes with evolution forks and slx brakes, etc whereas the model up comes with performance forks, xt brakes and a droppe rpost.. the brake/wheel/post upgrades are worth the pricing upgrade.. better forks are a bonus.Posted 4 years ago
That probably translates across most brands.

looking at Zestys so choosing a level of spec on the basis that I’m going to swap various bits out making the fork the real choice between price points as not much else of significance (to me) changes
So the comparison is betweenPosted 4 years ago
“Fox 32 float 150 ctd evolution “
or paying £500 more for
“Fox 32 float 150 ctd fit performance”
Never dabbled in fox forks at all. So, theres the basic (probably mostly OEM) ‘Evolution’ and theres the ‘Performance’ which is betterer. But I can’t really find good descriptions of the evolutions so its difficult to see what the Performance is adding to the package.
