Fox has introduced 650b forks into their 2013 Factory lineup. At Sea Otter 2013, it was clear to see that one of the most anticipated 650b/ 27.5 forks was the Fox Talas 650b. The Talas is the ultimate fork for variable terrain. Flip the Talas switch to 120mm and enjoy climbing to the top of the mountain. The added efficiency is sure to cut time off from the climb. Once you’ve reached the top, flip the switch back to 160mm. Fly down the mountain with incredible comfort. The Talas will eat up any bump, rut, root, or rock in your way. 34mm stanchions will keep the front end stiff and from flexing down hazardous terrain. 34mm stanchions are 20% stiffer than standard 32mm stanchions. The Talas 650b is jam packed with exciting technology including Kashima coating, FIT cartridge, CTD Technology, and Adjustable Trail Mode.

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 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 one with an open bath style.

For 2013, Fox has added CTD technology to this fork. CTD is short for Climb, Trail, and Descend. It is a three position on the fly system that provides three distinct compression dampings that you’d typically need on an average ride. CTD is extremely useful on the trail. The rider is quickly able to flip the lever between the three positions, and which results in being used numerously throughout 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. 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 on the fly.

This version of the Talas has Adjustable Trail mode. Once the lever is set to Trail mode, this fork allows the rider to have an extra 3 clicks of trail mode adjustability (soft, medium, and firm.) Adjustable Trail mode acts as a fine tune low speed compression adjustment. Adjustable Trail mode provides the rider with maximum suspension adjustability on the trail.
