Formula Selva R – Free your potential

The Formula Selva R represents the "state-of-the-art" of custom tuning for MTB forks. The 2Air technology allows a very precise tuning of the air side. Thanks to the two separate air chambers, you can set the pressure of the positive chamber according to weight, like any traditional forks, in addition to that you can also change the pressure of the negative chamber in order to fine-tune the response of the fork in the first part of the travel.

With the CTS Technology the possibilities of customizing the damping are potentially infinite. Thanks to the NeoPos system, the air spring is further refined, a riding experience that is not possible to achieve with a traditional air fork.

The Selva R creates a tuning potential that has been unachievable until now. Every single parameter can be modified according to your own specific needs. There is no setting you cannot reach. Your riding style is already built into the fork, it is up to you to unlock it.

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 their forks, Formula has a fundamental aim in mind, finding the perfect balance point between stiffness and flex, like at 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 has managed to combine the advantages of the standard boost with the stiffness of a traditional fork.


The 2Air technology is designed to achieve the highest level of customization in an air fork. By changing the pressure in the positive chamber (silver, main chamber) you can decide how much support you have from the fork according to your weight and/or riding style. While on the other hand, by changing the pressure in the negative chamber (bronze, sensitivity control), you can fine-tune the suppleness of the fork in the initial travel.


NeoPos is a system that represents the next evolutionary step in air suspension, a cutting-edge 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. Using the NeoPos volume spacers, the result will be a more constant, predictable and comfortable air suspension. Meaning, more like that of a coil spring suspension comfort.

IFT (Internal Floating Technology)

The Internal Floating Technology is what truly differentiates Formula forks from any other fork. Smoothness is very important in terms of suspension performance. Many tests on stanchion coatings have led to the result 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, the 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.

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.

ILS (Integrated Locking System)

The 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 our weight freak friends, the ILS can be removed without affecting the functionality of the thru axle.

Best fork up until 2019 models period.
Always been a fan of Formula, their innovative approach to components always set them apart from the competition. This fork is just the best thing you can have, saying this as off late 2019 purchase and have tried for long time most of top dogs including, Fox 26/28 grip2, lyrics rc2, DVO diamonds and CC Helm. Now, never tried Extreme Shox ERA for which people say is as amazing but the formula is just amazing it self. Endless adjustability with CTS valves, the industry best volume spacers and two air chambers. This fork saved my hands in races I would bail half way tru previously, amazing mid stroke support while preserving the best small bump sensitivity. All in all, best fork for me personally,
Eine Waffe! Im Vergleich zu anderen Federgabeln ein sehr weiches Ansprechen, das sich durch Anpassung des Drucks in der Negativ-Feder fein einstellen lässt. Ich bin vorher an meinem Fanes lange eine Fox Float 36 gefahren, aber die kann man nach Einbau der Selva getrost verkaufen. Zwar muss man sich bei der Einstellung erst umgewöhnen, da die Systematik eine andere ist, aber die Tuning-Möglichkeiten sind immens und wirklich jeder sollte mit der "R" sein Setting finden. Mit der Gabel liegt das Bike so satt auf dem Trail, wie ich es zuvor nie erlebt habe! Wirklich super! Gut, den Lockout hatte man sich vielleicht schenken können, aber stören tut er auch nicht. Uns spätestens beim Einstellen der Negativ-Feder macht er dann doch wieder Sinn.
