Formula is best known for its brakes, but the Italian brand also manufacturers suspension products. Their latest offering, the Selva, is a dedicated enduro fork with 35mm stanchions. It is available for either 27.5 or 27.5+/29er wheels.
The 27.5 model can be internally adjusted from 120mm-160mm of travel. There is also an extended version that is internally adjustable between 170mm and 180mm.
The big wheel model, which accommodates 27.5+ and 29er wheels, is internally adjustable from 120mm to 160mm.
The new fork has 13 clicks of compression, which can be adjusted via a handlebar mounted remote. The system is called Remote Cartridge Control (RCC) and uses a rotating hose that is integrated into the cartridge for adjustments.
In comparison, most competitors use hydraulic fluid or cable to perform this task which adds weight and complexity.
The Selva also has a wide range of low speed compression adjustments, but if that’s not enough, the entire circuit can be replaced. Formula offers three low speed compression valves for soft, medium, and firm tunes. They can be swapped in and out with simple tools without rebuilding the fork or bleeding the cartridge.
Another feature is the ILS (integrated locking system) axle. It works like a standard thru axle, but the lever is keyed. The axle can be inserted without lining anything up and once installed, the lever can be removed and repositioned to exactly where you want it.
The lever can also be removed entirely for weight savings. And there’s an after market lever that is lighter.
