Formula Selva S 29" / 27.5" Plus - The Sure Shot
Selva S represents the benchmark for enduro, aggressive trail biking, and e-mountain biking. Awesome reliability thanks to the triple stage coil negative spring on the air side. A great user-friendly approach with versatility in mind.
Thanks to CTS technology the Selva S features a completely customizable damping, adaptable to any riding style. With the Selva S you get two CTS valves, Gold (installed) and Blue (in the box).
With the Internal Floating Technology (IFT), a super reliable system that drastically reduces the typical friction of a traditional fork, the Selva S ensures maximum smoothness and allows for a great fine-tune adjustability.
Selva S is the fork that brings together two different worlds: ease of use and in-depth customization. A fork that, in a few years, has been able to establish itself as the first choice for many riders.
Is a technology that represents the next evolutionary step in air suspension, a cutting-edge innovation that will change your riding experience for the better. NEO POS stands for “new positive”, a technology that improves the behaviour of the fork’s positive air chamber. Using the Neopos the result will be a more constant, predictable and comfortable air suspension. Meaning, more like that of a coil spring suspension comfort.
HEX / Hexagon Design:
The ability of a fork to resist flexing is a key factor for maximum riding precision. A fork that rebounds too fast may make riding unsafe with an overall lack of control, above all when braking and cornering. In the same way, it is important that the fork is not too stiff, because it may make riding too tiring. When designing the Selva C Formula had a fundamental aim in mind, finding the perfect balance point between stiffness and flex, this is the same as their standard forks. Thanks to the Hexagon Design, the natural flex of the fork has been dramatically decreased with this lightweight method. In this way, Formula managed to combine the advantages of the standard boost with the stiffness of a traditional fork.
RCC / Remote Cartridge Control:
Remote Cartridge Control is an on-the-fly sytem that finely tunes the overall compression. In most of the forks, tuning options must be done on the fork itself or remotely by a mechanical cable rotating a knob. With RCC, Formula took a completely different approach: a remote adjustment that becomes integrated into the cartridge. Formula give the riders the opportunity to adjust the overall compression on the trail, while riding, right from the cockpit. With RCC, the fine tuning of overall compression is controlled by 13 different positions, from fully open to locked out.
IFT / Internal Floating Technology:
The IFT (Internal Floating Technology) is what truly differentiates Formula forks from any other fork. Smoothness is very important in terms of suspension performance. After many tests on stanchion coatings, Formula now know that they have a minimal effect on reducing friction. With the IFT Formula wanted to approach this aspect from a very different point of view. All forks, regardless of their stiffness, experience some kind of lateral stress while riding. This type of stress increases the friction of the internal parts. Thanks to Formula’s design, their hydraulic cartridge is structurally merged with the stanchions and lower legs. In a riding situation, the internals compensate for the external stresses placed on the fork. This causes an incredible reduction of friction.
ILS / Integrated Locked System:
ILS (Integrated Locking System) completely improves the thru-axle design. The lever is easily removable for re-insertion at virtually any position. The ILS can be used on a rear axle that requires a tool for removal. On top of that, the ILS is designed to prevent overtightening of the front axle, making wheel removal quick and simple. For weight freak friends, the ILS can be removed without affecting the functionality of the thru-axle.
CTS / Compression Tuning System:
Tuning your fork has never been so straight-forward. With CTS you can fine tune your suspension quickly with extreme accuracy. You decide what’s the best setting for you and your fork, choosing among 7 different behaviors. You set it up by yourself in five minutes, in your workshop. Freedom is now in your hands.
