Description

Pick your poison.

29er forks, especially those stretched out to 120mm of travel, are sometimes critiqued negatively because of how high they raise the front end. The beauty of Fox's Talas forks is that they instantly adjust travel for climbing (95mm) or descending (120mm). This, coupled with Fox's new CTD damping system, found here on the 32 Talas 29 120 CTD FIT Fork, makes for a highly intuitive, versatile trail fork.

Fox forks have traditionally been featured packed, offering the ability to make any adjustments needed to tune the fork for any trail conditions. The only problem was the difficulty for the average rider to make knowledgeable tweaks to the forks. High- and low-speed compression, lockout threshold, preload, and rebound are all common adjustments, but, for the person who wants to ride, and not relentlessly and aimlessly tune a fork, this can have a negative effect on performance and user experience.

With CTD, one lever quickly and easily switches the fork's compression to ideal settings for the task at hand. The Climb setting adds plenty of low-speed compression to mitigate bobbing when standing on the pedals. Trail mode offers moderate low-speed compression to balance efficiency with optimal trail manners. It's also independently adjustable with three settings; soft, medium, and firm, called Trail Adjust. Finally, the Descend setting features the perfect blend of high- and low-speed compression for plush action on steep and aggressive sections of trail.

While longer travel Float forks, 130mm and above, have been revised to offer a more linear spring rate, Fox felt that a progressive spring is optimal for all-mountain conditions. This helps to prevent bottoming out the 120mm of travel and ensures a more efficient ride for racing. What they have redesigned on these forks, besides the addition of CTD, is the lowers. The 2013 29er lowers are now nearly a half pound lighter than last year's comparable model. While that may not seem significant, keep in mind dropping mass from the lowers effectively reduces un-sprung weight — which affects the amount of inertia the damper needs to control, resulting in enhanced suspension action. To drop the weight, Fox's engineers retained the Float's respected torsional stiffness by redesigning the brace, dropouts, and wall thickness.

The 2013 Fox 32 Talas 32 120 CTD FIT Fork comes in Black with the smooth and durable Kashima coating on the stanchion tubes. It's offered here with a tapered 1.5 to 1-1/8in steerer, and has a 15QR axle.

Hey Marlon NY,
This fork will fit your 2013 Specialized Camber. The headtube on that bike is tapered from 1 1/8 to 1.5 inches. This fork is designed to fit that size headtube. If you have any other questions or would like help with an order please contact us by calling 1-800-409-4502 or by chatting with a Gearhead online.

Greetings,
This fork is not the G2 version unfortunately. All of our FOX forks that are G2 geometry are noted in the title for the product. If you have any additional questions, feel free to ask.
