Updated Damping Throughout – 32 and 34 series forks have updated damping tunes for better small bump compliance and traction. The 36 damper uses a redesigned valve system offering better traction, wider tuning range, and reduced friction.

New CTD Adjustment – 32 and 34 Factory models offer on-the-fly CTD damping adjustment and 7-click Trail mode fine-tuning.

Better Seals and Lubrication – 32, 34 and 36 forks feature a redesigned seal head architecture that virtually eliminates breakaway force. 32, 34, 36 and 40 forks use an advanced lubrication oil that integrates Molybdenum from the Kashima Coat formula.

Brand New 36 – 36 RC2 fork is the lightest they’ve ever made. Half a pound lighter than last year at 4.19 pounds. The 36 chassis was refined similarly to what they did with the 32 and 34 chassis over the last couple years. It also uses a negative air spring rather than a coil, which helps it drop some weight too. The new 36 has a completely new thru-axle design convertible between 15mm and 20mm axles (I’m not sure very many people will be stoked with this redesign).
