Fox 36 Talas 180 2011 Fork (Tapered version)
Used on bike for 6 months. Recently Swapped out from my Nomad as I have swapped to coil front and back. This is the after market fork with all the features detailed below.
There are a couple of tiny scratches on the stanchions. You cannot feel them if you run your finger over them and do not affect the performance of the fork at all. It has a 190mm cut steerer and a Hope Crown race already fitted.
36 Talas 180 Features:
Each model in the RC2 lineup features our all-new FIT RC2 inverted damper, the industry benchmark for damping performance and reliability. The new FIT RC2 damper lowers un-sprung weight, allowing the fork to react quicker for better steering control. Its unique single-wall bladder design has been engineered to provide incredibly reliable and consistent, fade-free damping. The inverted design offers the same range of adjustability, but the adjusters have been moved to the top of the stanchion for better convenience.
We designed the 36 180 mm series with an incredibly large amount of bushing overlap and a new below axle tube design, creating an extremely stiff chassis and the lowest axle-to-crown distance available in a 180 mm fork. RC2 models come with Kashima Coat stanchions for stiction-free performance, to give you quicker suspension response and improved durability. Riders who want on-the-fly adjustable travel will love the new 36 TALAS, with its new ergonomically pleasing TALAS lever that easily changes the travel setting from 180 to 140 mm.
