    I was just wondering if Fox made a DH fork before the 40?

    No, the 40 went through a lot of proto stages, but it was the first

    the 36 and 40 were the first through axle forks for Fox

    Fox used to make the internals on the old Cannondale Dh fork (the blue anodized one). They drew from that experiment to create the 40, which was in various prototype stages for 3-4 years before release.
