Let the new product releases continue to roll! Fox Racing today unveiled their 2011 fork lineup with new offerings and refinements throughout the line. Just when it seemed Fox had achieved suspension nirvana, they go and up the ante… again!

New Features for 2011

  • Terralogic: This new dampening system aims to intelligently differentiate between rider input and terrain — thus improving efficiency while remaining supple and active. It offers adjustable threshold to cater to the terrain and rider’s needs.
  • Kashima Coat: Stanchions will benefit from a stiction-free, longer-lasting and more durable coating.
  • 2-position TALAS: Reduced complexity and more nailed-down travel adjustments on-the-fly.
  • Refined Travel: Lower compression ratios, improved air spring curves and more.

With those new features, Fox is introducing a couple of forks that caught my eye. The all-new Fox 36 180 TALAS is a single-crown 180mm bomber that’s built for freeride and otherwise burly terrain. This new fork features all-new lowers that extend beyond the axle to pack in more quality travel while maintaining the lowest axle-to-crown height available. The available TALAS system will reduce the travel to 140mm should you wish to pedal your rig to the top.

The other fork that I’m dying to get my hands on is the all-new Fox 32 TALAS 29. This 120mm 29er fork features all the goodies mentioned above–including the TALAS travel adjust from 120 to 95mm on-the-fly. I  see this is a great option for some of the best 29er trailbikes on the market including the Santa Cruz Tallboy, Niner RIP9, Gary Fisher Rumblefish, etc.
