Fox's 34 TALAS 160 FIT CTD w/Trail Adjust is well known for its adjustability, low weight, and strength. With a quick sweep of a lever, you can adjust your travel from 160 to 130mm on the fly. Same thing goes for the feel: want your fork stiff for climbing or sprinting? Want your fork nice and plush for the descent? No problem, a flick of the CTD switch and your TALAS is doing what you want it to, when you want it to, while the FIT damper keeps air and oil separate, ensuring smooth suspension on all terrain. Extra slippery Kashima-coated stanchions are another reason for the fork's quick responsiveness and smooth travel.
For the best suspension yet, Fox has brought Miyaki Company of Japan’s legendary Kashima Coat to its fork stanchions. You can recognize it by the unique gold color. This coating, which is four times harder than hard-anodized aluminum, made its name in car and motorcycle suspensions and drivetrains, and now you can enjoy all its amazing benefits. These include super low friction, excellent abrasion resistance and durability, and significantly better lubrication characteristics. In short, this fork is way more reactive, soaks up even tiny bumps and lasts longer with less maintenance, too.
Fox's 15QR thru-axle system drastically increases the fork's stiffness- to-weight ratio, is lighter than a 20mm thru-axle, and way stiffer than a standard dropout and quick release. Wheel installation and removal is tool- free, fast, and easy.
