FOX Racing Shox 32 TALAS 140 FIT RLC Fork - 2012 $0.00
All-mountain performance with an XC attitude. Or vice-versa.
The Fox 32 TALAS 140 FIT RLC Fork has just about every technology that Fox offers. It provides a quick and easy travel adjustment from 140mm (5.5") down to 110mm (4.3") with a twist of the two position TALAS knob. In the short position you'll be able to climb with efficiency and optimized weight balance for good traction. Let it back up after the climb, and you'll have full travel for the rock gardens on the way down. It's that easy and it's a great feature for varied terrain.
The FIT cartridge damper seals the fluid from the atmosphere to eliminate the chance of fluid aeration and subsequent variations in the damping properties. Fox does this with a rubber bladder inside the damper assembly. It also minimizes friction and allows for internal fluid volume changes. And, because it uses less fluid than the older open bath damper, it shaves weight from the TALAS forks. With the FIT RLC damper, you'll get low speed compression and rebound adjustments in addition to a crown mounted lockout. It has an adjustable lockout force knob, allowing you to control the desired amount of blowoff when locked out. The TALAS air spring yields a linear feel, giving you a sensation of buttery smooth small bump response and access to the full range of travel yet you'll still get no harsh ...all the technology that FOX offers -- TALAS, Kashima Coat, FIT, RLC. You really can't beat this fork when you need to adapt to varied terrain... bottoming. The wide range of adjustment for the compression and rebound settings make this fork highly tunable for a wide variety of terrain and riding styles. And for those who ride with long-fingered gloves, you'll be glad to know that the redesigned lockout lever is easier to use than ever.
The Kashima Coat is what gives the stanchions their golden color. And this year, Fox has gone to great pains to ensure consistency in this finish color. Last year's variability had no effect on performance, it was just weird to look down and see two different colored upper tubes. To make these stanchions so buttery, they start with raw aluminum and add molybdenum disulfide via an induction process that deposits the material into pores in the surface to the effect of 70 billion pores per cm squared. The MoS2 adds lubricity, extending the life of the tubes as well as greatly reducing friction. This reduces stiction and makes the fork more responsive than ever over small bumps, an impressive feat for a fork already regarded as having the best air sprung small bump performance.
The 15QR system on the lower legs is noticeably stiffer and yields greater tracking and steering precision through rough terrain than a quick release. In fact, the added shear stiffness of the 15QR improves the fork's bump eating performance because the fork legs just cannot move independently. This avoids binding of the upper legs in the bushings, further reducing friction. Take away friction and you'll have better performance and a smoother, more controlled ride. Guaranteed.
The Fox 32 TALAS 140 FIT RLC Fork is travel adjustable from 140 - 110mm and is available with two steerer options -- 1-1/8" straight or 1-1/8" to 1.5 tapered. The Black powdercoated legs have an integrated brake hose guide on the fork arch. It has lightweight post-mounts for your disc brake caliper and the Fox/Shimano designed 15QR thru-axle system.
US Fox dealers are prohibited from shipping Fox Forks outside the US.
- Kashima Coat reduces stiction and adds durability without adding weight
- Fox Isolation Technology (FIT) prevents the oil and air inside the fork from mixing for optimal performance in any weather extreme
- Lever-actuated lockout eliminates fork bob during climbing and can be adjusted to compress slightly to improve tracking or locked out completely
- Low-speed compression adjustment allows the rider to dial the fork's feel on smaller bumps and washboard surfaces
- Lockout Force Adjust allows you to adjust the lockout from super-stiff to soft
