The Fox Talas has been extremely popular among all mountain riders due to the diverse terrain it is capable of successfully handling. The Fox 36 Talas 180 is the big dog of the Talas lineup. 180mm of smooth and reliable travel help you manuver through the most technical terrain of the downhill course. Whether you are hitting the local freeride course or pedaling on down the fire-road, the Talas will provide you with a soft supple ride. The 36 Talas features 36mm stanchions, Kashima coating, and the FIT RC2. For 2014, the spring curve has been improved for superior steering.

The larger the diameter the stanchions are, the less the fork will flex. Therefore, Fox put 36mm stanchions on this version of the Talas. They are much stronger than the standard 32mm stanchions and reduce flex dramatically. To ensure that the fork’s suspension is buttery smooth, Fox used genuine Kashima coating on the stanchions. The Kashima coating is a hard anodizing process that fills in any micro pores in the material creating a smoother surface, in comparison to a hard anodization on prior versions. Its distinctive gold color is backed by its high performance attributes including extreme durability as well as an extremely smooth feel. The whole purpose and value of the Kashima coating is its friction reduction properties.

The FIT RC2 damper employs a bladder system that keeps the oil and air from mixing to provide optimal performance in all riding extremes. Since the FIT cartridge uses much less oil, the weight of the fork is significantly less than one with an open bath style. The lighter damper is also inverted in the fork which reduces unsprung weight.

Comments about Fox 36 Talas 180 RC2 Fit 26" Fork 2014:

The weight of the fork is just great for a talas and the kashima coating makes it buttery smooth a great air fork for a freeride bike with the talas I can actually change the travel to 140mm and could you believe that a freeride bike that could climb well too best of both world.well what frustrates me is just the hi and low comp setting overall its a great fork....no doubt bout it.

Vast Improvement from 2013

    Comments about Fox 36 Talas 180 RC2 Fit 26" Fork 2014:

    I use this fork on lifted downhill runs, biking uphill and everything in between. Initial breakaway friction is extremely low, which provides excellent small bump compliance, and yes it is very noticeable from the 2013 model, which I had. Another noticeable difference is the progression in force necessary to bottom the fork. This helps a lot when ur trying to control the front end at high speeds or just generally hard riding, which this fork is meant for. Fork even firms up slightly when u drop it to the lower travel setting which is nice when im climbing. Fox recommends running about 5% less sag with this new fork than you're use to, likely due to the lower friction in travel and trying to attain a firmer midstroke feel. Only negative would be that it could always be lighter.
