The Fox Talas is the go anywhere do anything fork. The Talas 29 was built specifically to accommodate the needs of big wheeled cyclists. The Talas offers quick and easy travel adjust. Go from 120mm to 90mm of smooth and reliable travel by flicking the Talas knob. Hit smaller drop offs and rock gardens just as easily as climbing up steep terrain. Once you experience Talas adjustable travel, you’ll never look back. For 2014, the damping tunes have been updated for even greater control. The internal travel ranges feature crisp actuation with precise internal travel ranges.
To ensure that every fork cycle is buttery smooth, Fox Kashima coated the Talas’ uppers. 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 CTD technology. 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. 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.
Climb, Trail, and Descend mode technology will change the way you ride. CTD makes it easier for the rider to adjust their fork to adapt to the terrain ahead.
