    That damper looks just like an old Manitou Intrinsic damper. The idea to be able to modulate the size of the negative chamber is a good one.

  • sectr says:

    Guess they get a lot of inspiration from Manitou.
    compression knobs look very similar to the Manitou MC2

    Don’t know why it’s not in the article, but IIRC, the MRP Ramp control Cartridge does not work in Talas forks!

    “NEW Fox 34, Version A …will fit 2016 and newer Fox 34 Float forks with the FIT 4 and Grip dampers.”

    So, to be more up-front, the MRP Ramp Control Tech only works with 2016 FOX “FLOAT” 34.

    I own a Talas 5, and had my hopes up!

    The great thing about Fox Forks is the more you ride them the lighter they get. Oil lost past the seals is the magic Fox formula.

  • Rob Moucha says:

    So are the weights for the Factory iRD? Is the performance also 0.5 lbs less than last years?

    Also bought a 130mm Sektor in 2012 and it also had Motion Control and weighed 1931mm right out of the box. This fork has taken all the meanness the trails in Pisgah can hand out and is still in fine shape. Maybe you guys at MTBR ought to get off your Pikes and Fox 36’s and try some of these trailish forks. You must just be surprised.

    Whoops I meant grams not mm.

    bet the stepped lowers is for BOOST Hubs. Theres space for the disk brake while the crown keeps the same measurement of a tradicional 100mm fork. This will make the fork lighter, stronger than the usual 110mm forks.

  • Andy says:

    Sneak peek? Take a look at the IG accounts of all of the TFR XCO pros. It’s not being hidden at all.

  • Dennis says:

    Coming from the motorcycle (specifically sport bikes) world, I saw the evolution of forks go from simple right-side up, to upside-down; from chromed stanchions to gold-coated stanchions (similar hard-coat concept as Kashima), to now what many motorcycle fork manufacturers are calling DLC (diamond-like coating) which is black in color. Could be some trickle-down to the MTB world.

    OHLINS motorcycle suspension is nice, until you need something, then you wait and wait and maybe the one US distributer will get it for you. Did I mention the wait?
