Inertia Project FOX 40 Crown

Up on the chopping block this week we’ve got some Inertia Project crowns by Function Bikes. Available in a few variations, the Inertia crowns offer some benefits over stock crowns. They make crowns that fit the Marzocchi 888 as well as the FOX 40. Inside we take a look at the FOX 40 kit.

The Inertia Project crowns are 100% US made in Portland, Oregon. They are available in two versions; a half kit and a full kit. Both kits Function says will fit all FOX 40’s (R & RC2).

  • FOX 40 Upper Kit (upper crown, direct mount stem, and top cap)
  • FOX 40 Full Kit (upper crown, direct mount stem, top cap, lower crown, steerer tube)

Parts are CNC machined from 6061-T6 and have a very nice finish to them.

Price:

Each kit Function Bikes produces is priced very competitively compared to other high end crown or even stem options. Inertia believes in giving you a high quality product without the high price.

  • $114.95 – FOX 40 upper crown kit
  • $189.95 – FOX 40 full crown kit

Weight:

According to Function, their crowns are a good bit lighter than the stock FOX 40 ones. We’ll get up a full comparison in the full article.
