For riders unwilling to sacrifice climbing prowess or descending capability, the 2017 FOX Racing Shox 36 TALAS 27.5 160-130 HSC/LSC FIT Fork offers 30mm of adjustable travel with the flip of a switch. Now you can plow through rowdy rock gardens and technical terrain without losing efficiency on the ascents.
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.
You'll also benefit from the ability to adjust the fork's end stroke ramp-up with additional volume spacers for a more progressive feel. Adding even more customization, the FIT HSC/LSC damper fine-tunes its support to the course you're riding. Dialing in both settings lets you tune the 36 Talas for a more forgiving feel on square edges and landings without wallowing out in high-speed dips, berms, and sudden rises. Moreover, its ingenious air bleed system ensures consistent performance when you're riding on high-altitude courses.
