It's no secret that FOX Racing Shox has its fork designs dialed. Each year, the company regularly introduces a mix of small modifications and large overhauls only when it's sure that the improvements are going to make a long-lasting, tangible difference in performance. For 2017, FOX remained satisfied with the changes of 2016, and turned its focus squarely to making the remainder of its fork line available with Boost spacing. The versatile 34 TALAS 27.5 150-120 3Pos-Adj FIT4 Boost Fork continues to allow riders to switch between 150mm of slacked-out plushness for big, aggressive lines and 120mm of small-bump compliance for tackling root-latticed climbs, but it does so with the added stiffness and convenience of a Boost quick-release thru-axle.
As with last year's model, the 34 TALAS is equipped with FOX's intuitive FIT4 system, which replaced CTD to deliver Firm, Medium, and Open settings. We'd forgive you for assuming the transition from CTD to FIT4 meant nothing but a change in name, but the shift actually translates to a significant change in ride quality.
The TALAS rides high in its travel across a range of terrain, and its Open setting includes its own range of sub settings that allow you to use more of the fork's travel. It successfully devours repetitive small bumps and unplanned square hits with decisive plushness as you ride. Whether you choose to barrel down aggressive lines on your enduro rig or challenge your skills by dicing through root-laced lines and tight switchbacks, you'll be able to find an ideal setting within the well-defined Firm, Medium, and Open settings to suit your ever-changing ride.
