Fox Racing Shox is a brand used by Fox Factory Holding Corp. to sell off-road racing suspension components.
In 1974, Bob Fox ran a small business distributing suspension components for motocross bikes with his brother Geoff. In 1977, the company split into what became Fox Racing and Fox Head, Inc. under Geoff Fox, and Bob Fox's Fox Racing Shox parts production company, Fox Factory. A holding company, Fox Factory Holding, was established in 1978. Fox Factory produces suspension components for motorcycles, automobiles, all-terrain vehicles, snowmobiles, and mountain bikes.
In March 2014, Fox acquired Sport Truck USA for about $44 million to further build its off-road vehicle product line. Sport Truck USA primarily designs, markets and distributes high-quality, aftermarket suspension equipment for truck vehicles.
In December 2014, Fox acquired the cycling brand and assets of Race Face and Easton for approximately $30 million.
