Fox 34 Talas 150 CTD Remote 27.5" 2014
The Fox Talas 34 is the definitive fork for variable terrain and the ultimate upgrade for your 27.5 or 650b trail machine. Flick the Talas knob into the short position and you’ll have 120mm of travel that’ll keep you balanced and steady as you climb up the back side of the mountain. The law of gravity states that: what goes up must come down. So, switch the Talas knob back and you’ll have 150mm of buttery smooth travel, perfect for mowing down rocks, branches, roots, and anything that dare sit in your path. With 150mm of travel, the Talas will be able to guide you through just about any all mountain trails at all corners of the earth.
Thick 34mm stanchions help prevent flex, so you maintain control at all times. To ensure that your travel is buttery smooth, Fox has added Kashima coating to the uppers. 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 to reduce friction for more efficient travel.
The 27.5 Fox Talas features the FIT cartridge. FIT stands for Fox Isolated Technology. FIT technology 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 a fork with an open bath style.
CTD Technology is incredibly easy to use and allows you ultimate adjustability on the trail. CTD is short for Climb, Trail, and Descend. It is a three position on the fly system that provides three distinct compression dampenings that you’d typically need on an average ride. CTD is extremely useful on trails with indecisive terrain. The rider is quickly able to flip the lever between the three positions on the fly to ensure the perfect amount of travel for that very moment in the ride. CTD is much faster than the older click system, where the rider would have to stop and click through to find the proper setting.
Climb mode has the firmest low- speed compression, which maximizes pedaling efficiency and has minimal suspension movement to reduce pedal-bob. Internally, the oil flow is restricted, and can only flow through the Climb port, which limits the suspension’s movement. In the event of a hard impact, the spring loaded blow- off valve will allow the damper to go into its travel. Trail mode provides an optimal blend of pedaling efficiency and control on variable terrain. The oil flow is opened to the mid and high speed compression shim stack. Descend mode provides the rider with the most active suspension. Descend mode is an optimized low- speed compression setting which provides the perfect balance of control and plushness for steep, aggressive descents. Oil is able to flow through the high, mid, and low speed ports. CTD is easily controlled by switching the dial on the crown of the fork. This quick and easy adjustment allows the rider to control their suspension without having to dismount the saddle. This version of the Talas comes with a handlebar remote, so switching from Climb to Trail to Descend is a snap. The lever for 2014 is much smaller than before, and the streamlined design fits nicely on your handlebars.
For 2014, Fox focused on refining the Talas' Force to Displacement rate (Spring Curve), allowing a stiffer feeling fork. The Talas also weighs less than prior years, weighing in at only 4.8lbs (with a 15mm QR!), and features 34mm stanchions with 150mm of silky-smooth travel. Material was shaved off, yet the rigidity has improved.
