Strengths:    Easy to use external travel adjuster.

Weaknesses:    Plushness, lateral stiffness,

Bottom Line:   
It's quite a good deal between epic climb and need of a medium-long travel fork. Anyways, if you don't really need that adjustibility that much go for fixed travel (or with an internal adjuster) for, felt a lotss more stable and stiff laterally.

Strengths:    Plush, reasonably light, adjustable everything

Weaknesses:    None

Bottom Line:   
Loving this shock. I don't know how I rode all those years without one. I've always ridden XC-specific rigs that were light and twitchy and although the R7 and Duke were both great shock in their own rights, neither compares to the confidence of the TALAS. Crank it down and lock it out for climbing and my 5-inch trail bike climbs with the best, but open it up to the full 150 and I'm suddenly able to fly through the rock gardens and rail the loose rubble. Fricking amazing shock.

Strengths:    Full travel, but never feels like it bottoms. Good rebound dampening, even though I run more pressure it still has enough rebound dampening

Weaknesses:    Heavier riders won't be able to achieve proper sag without bottoming

Bottom Line:   
I feel this is an outstanding fork. My only opmplaint is that I'm 225lbs+gear, and I run 110psi in this fork. At 110psi I get almost 0 sag, but can use all the travel on a big hit. The good thing is I never notice if I use 75% travel, or use 99% travel. The fork flat out works. Have thought about sending the fork out to PUSH as I also need to send the rear shock out to get just a smidge more rebound dampening. Not unexpected for a big guy that rides hard.

Strengths:    Stiff, plush, and easy to adjust.

Weaknesses:    None.

Bottom Line:   
This fork is sick.

There are some notable improvements over last year's model.
The two that I've noticed most are the much improved spring curve and low speed compression.

The new spring curve allows me to adjust my fork to a much greater degree and still get full travel.

The low speed compression is amazing this year. I have mine set to half (4 clicks) for most of the riding I do and it drastically reduces brake dive and gives me a noticeable platform for pedaling but has very little effect on the plushness in the initial stroke. On certain rides, I'll back it out to full soft and I could swear that the fork is coil sprung. :)

Another thing I've noticed, is that this fork is much better with chatter than last years. Another very big + for me.

This is easily the best all around fork I've ever used. I recommend it to anyone that is looking for a mid-travel fork.

Strengths:    Smooth, light and stiff.

Weaknesses:    None so far.

Bottom Line:   
Awesome product that inspires confidence. The travel adjust is simple enough to use on the fly. The weight is low, and the 15mm thru axle is easy to use and feels much more stiff. World of difference from what I've had/used.

Fox Talas 32 140-110 FIT RLC Question

I just got this fork, but it was advertised as a 150-120mm. Can this fork be converted to 150mm travel? I don't know the model year. Couldn't find this info anywhere. Thanks for any help.Read More »
