Formula Selva S 29 inches, 170mm travel
The Formula Selva S suspension fork is the benchmark when it comes to Enduro, aggressive trail riding and E-MTB.
The mechanical, three-stage negative spring ensures maximum reliability - a user-friendly approach with versatility in mind.
Thanks to CTS technology, the Selva S has fully adjustable cushioning that can be adapted to any riding style.
With Internal Floating Technology (IFT), an extremely reliable system that drastically reduces the typical friction of conventional forks,
it also offers maximum smoothness and amazing versatility when it comes to fine-tuning.
The Selva S is a suspension fork that combines two different worlds:
Ease of use and maximum customizability.
It is not without reason that the Selva was able to establish itself as the first choice for many drivers in just a few years.

Settings: rebound over 21 clicks, compression for each high speed and low speed over 12 clicks
Compression Tuning System (CTS, RED valve with mildness tune, the red valve is the "keep-the-momentum" race option says Formula,
with this valve you get a racing setup at high speeds combined with great comfort at low speeds )
Lockout (on the fork crown)
optional: Remote Cartridge Control (RCC, not included in delivery)
15mm thru axle with Integrated Locking System (ILS)
HEX (Hexagon Design)
A fork's ability to resist compression is a key factor in maximum riding precision.
A fork that rebounds too quickly can make riding unsafe and result in a lack of control,
especially when braking and cornering. It is equally important that the fork is not too stiff, as this can make riding too strenuous.
When developing their suspension forks, Formula has one fundamental goal in mind:
finding the perfect balance between stiffness and flexibility, like their standard forks.
Thanks to the hexagon design, the natural flex of the fork has been drastically reduced with this simple method.
In this way, Formula has managed to combine the advantages of the Boost construction with the stiffness of a traditional fork.
NeoPos is a system that represents the next evolutionary stage in the development of air suspension, a groundbreaking innovation,
that will change your riding experience for the better.
NeoPos stands for "new positive", a technology that improves the behavior of the fork's positive air chamber.
By using the NeoPos volume spacers, the result will be a more consistent, predictable and comfortable air suspension,
which corresponds more to the suspension comfort of a steel suspension.
IFT (Internal Floating Technology):
Internal Floating Technology is what sets Formula forks apart from all other suspension forks.
Smoothness is very important in terms of suspension performance.
Many tests on upper tube coatings have found that they have a minimal effect on reducing friction.
With the IFT, Formula wanted to approach this aspect from a completely different point of view.
All forks, regardless of their stiffness, experience some form of lateral loading while riding.
This type of loading increases friction on the internal components.
Thanks to the Formula construction, the hydraulic cartridge is structurally fused with the upper tubes and lower legs.
In your riding situation, the internal parts compensate for the external stresses acting on the fork.
This causes an incredible reduction in friction.
CTS (Compression Tuning System)
Tuning your fork has never been easier. With CTS you can fine-tune your suspension quickly and extremely precisely.
You decide what is the best setting for you and your fork by choosing between 8 different behaviors.
Easily set up in five minutes, freedom is in your hands!
ILS (Integrated Locking System)
The Integrated Locking System fundamentally improves the design of the thru axle.
The lever is easily removable and can be reinserted in almost any position.
The ILS can be used on a rear axle that requires a tool to remove.
In addition, the ILS is designed to prevent over-rotation of the front axle, making wheel removal quick and easy.
For those who care about every gram, the ILS can also be removed without affecting the functionality of the thru axle.
15mm thru axle with Integrated Locking System (ILS)
This new and unused fork was installed in a photo bike but not ridden. The fork shaft is shortened to 232mm, a headset base plate is not mounted and an ahead claw is not inserted.
