Description of Formula 33 / Thirty-Three 27.5" Fork - 100mm - Tapered - 15x100mm - black
The Formula 33 is a concentrated combination of technology, a suspension created for modern mountainbike needs. The 33 mm stanchions give it an extraordinary strength, which permits the 100 mm fork to excel even in all mountain riding.
The closed cartridge of the Drop-In Cartridge System (DCS) makes a service without removing the fork possible. The Remote Cartridge Control (RCC) allows the rider to control fork compression straight from the handlebars and while in action. And the Compression Tuning System (CTS) permits, with extreme ease, to adapt the 33 to all riders' needs.
It does not matter if you are a cross country racer, a weekend warrior or hungry for epic bike rides - the 33 wants be your irreplaceable companion.
Adjustment of Formula 33 / Thirty-Three:
Lockout / -blow off
adjustment of overall compression (low, mid, hard)
adjusment of progression
Technologies of Formula 33 / Thirty-Three
DCS (Drop-in Cartridge System)
The DCS is Formula's self-contained damper unit that handles the lock-out, compression and rebound duties. For on the trail adjustment of the compression, With the Remote Cartridge Control (RCC) which is integreated into the Satellite Switch Adjustment (SSA) at the cartridge, you can manage on the trail adjustments. The cap (called satellite) makes it possible to change between the three different levels of progression (see CTS).
RCC (Remote Cartridge Control)
The RCC is an on-the-fly sytem that finely tunes the overall compression. In most of the suspension systems, tuning options must be done on the fork itself or remotely by a mechanical cable rotating a knob. Formula's RCC took different approach. It is a remote adjustment that becomes integrated into the cartridge. It gives the rider 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.
CTS (Compression Tuning System)
With the CTS Formula offers 3 different kinds of valve heads for soft, medium and firm high speed compression. With this system, a wide range of riding styles is covered and this makes the 33 highly customizable by any rider, using a simple tool that anyone can use in their own workshop.
ILS (Integrated Locking System)
The ILS improves the thru-axle design. The lever is easily removable for re-insertion at virtually any position. The ILS can also 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 freaks, the ILS can be removed without affecting the functionality of the thru-axle.
