Cyclingnews Tech Editor, James Huang has been receiving boxes and boxes of 2007 product to test. In the mix, we found this plush new fork from Fox Racing Shox.
Along with the new Super D style of racing comes a new breed of mountain bikes and suspension forks, and Fox's 36 air-sprung TALAS RC2 epitomizes the category with up to 160mm of travel in a chassis weighing just 2.4kg (5.4lbs). The 36mm diameter aluminum stanchion tubes on our test fork combine with the massive magnesium lower leg casting and 20mm thru-axle to virtually guarantee accurate steering precision.
New for '07 is the three-position TALAS travel adjuster, which switches between 100mm, 130mm, and 160mm setting with a simple turn. Fox's proven RC2 damper allows for independently adjustable low-speed and high-speed compression damping, along with adjustable low-speed rebound damping.
