Description

The versatile big bruiser.

The Fox 36 Talas 180 FIT RC2 Fork makes the leap from a 180mm huge-hit-gobbler to a 140mm climb-crusher at the flick of a switch. The combination of 36mm stanchions, a 20mm thru-axle, and an incredible amount of bushing overlap make the Talas 180 ultra-stiff in either setting, so you can point and shoot at will.

Equipped with the FIT RC2 damper, a cartridge unit that uses an expandable bladder to seal suspension oil from air, it provides consistent action during heavy-duty use. The damper has both low- and high-speed compression tuning. This means you can dial the fork to offer a bob-reducing, pedal-friendly platform with the low-speed adjustment. Or back it off for plusher, small-bump compliant ride. The high-speed adjustment lets you find your preference for large hit resistance. This versatility lets you set the Talas RC2 for optimum trail manners whether you've got a monster climb or want to blaze the descent.

The Talas is outfitted with an air spring that not only keeps weight down, but also has a highly refined curve. It's tuned to provide a plush ride at the top of the stroke with a progressive ramp up to avoid bottoming at the end. While air springs are notorious for their added stiction from the need for airtight seals, Fox reduces this as much as possible by using its Kashima coating, a process that fills any micro pores and makes the aluminum stanchions incredibly slippery.

The 2013 Talas 36 180 FIT RC2 Fork's lower legs and crown is powder coated in Black. It has a 1-1/8 to 1.5in tapered steerer tube and only accepts 8in post mount disc brakes. The beefy 36mm chassis is stiff and strong, and made even better by the inclusion of a 20QR thru-axle system.
