Fox Racing Shox is a brand used by Fox Factory (NASDAQFOXF) to sell off road racing suspension components.[1]

History[edit]

In 1974, Bob Fox started racing his products in motocross and Fox Racing, Inc. was founded in 1980 in Watsonville, California. It started as a small business distributing suspension components for motocross bikes. They produce suspension components for motorcycles, automobiles, all-terrain vehicles, snowmobiles, and mountain bikes.

Fox Factory was acquired by Compass Diversified Holdings, a private equity firm, in 2008.[2] It went public in 2013.[3]
