The best of both worlds.
Made for riders looking to pummel through intimidating rock gardens and dismantle technical terrain without sacrificing climbing prowess on the way up, the FOX Racing Shox 36 TALAS 27.5 160-130 3Pos-Adj FIT4 Boost Fork offers unflappable stiffness mated to 30mm of travel that's adjustable with the flick of a switch. The fork's adjustable travel allows riders to drop the front end to a trail-worthy 130mm of travel for enhanced climbing efficiency without the unwieldy feel inherent in longer-travel forks. Suddenly, pedaling up long fire roads, steep singletrack, and unrelenting switchbacks is much easier, allowing you to save energy for the wicked descent. And when it's time to get rowdy on the downhill, simply flick the TALAS switch to its maximum setting for 160mm of plush, terrain-gobbling travel.
New for 2017, the Fox 36 TALAS 27.5 Boost Fork is optimized for use with wider, ultra-stiff 15x110mm quick-release front thru-axles, also known as Boost. Boost delivers extra stiffness to an already stout fork, giving riders precise tracking and unsurpassed poise when they're dissecting unruly stretches of trail and gnarly rock gardens. Further enhancing its all-mountain credentials, the fork's FIT4 damper provides 3-position adjustment. This 3-position adjustment gives riders the ability to switch between Open, Medium, and Firm settings on-the-fly. Within its Open mode, the fork offers 22 clicks of low-speed compression adjustment for a fine-tuned feel to the terrain at hand. Slightly revised for 2017, the Fit4 damper features an updated tune that enhances sensitivity without sacrificing overall support.

- Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
Nothing better than a fork that can do both, I have this fork on my sb6c and couldn't be happier with the decision. A big travel 160 that converts to 130 with the flick of a switch is like a dream come true.
