Plush descending, efficient climbing.
Designed for all-mountain aficionados and dedicated enduro racers, the 2017 FOX Racing Shox 36 TALAS 27.5 160-130 3Pos-Adj FIT 4 Fork delivers unflappable stiffness mated to 30mm of adjustable travel with the simple flick of a switch. The 36 TALAS gives riders the option of dropping the front end to a trail-worthy 130mm of travel on steep climbs and unrelenting uphill sections. Ultimately, this increases climbing prowess by eliminating the unwieldy feel inherent to longer-travel forks on brutal climbs. And when it's time to get rowdy on the downhill, simply flick the TALAS switch to its maximum setting for 160mm of plush, trail-gobbling travel.
Tailored to modern trail machines, the 36 TALAS accommodates 15x100mm quick-release thru-axles for high levels of stiffness, as well as ease of mounting on roof rack systems. Enhancing the fork's all-mountain credentials, its Fit4 damper provides 3-position adjustment, with the ability to switch between Open, Medium, and Firm settings on-the-fly. Within Open mode, the fork offers 22 clicks of low-speed compression adjustment for a fine-tuned feel to the terrain at hand. Furthermore, the Fit4 damper features a revised tune for 2017, serving up enhanced sensitivity without sacrificing overall support.
