Coil spring is a matter of feeling. A fork with a coil spring is neither better nor worse than an air fork, it is just different. The small bumps compliance of a coil spring fork is unmistakable, its linear behavior is very distinctive. If these are the things you are looking for, the Formula Selva C is your address, a set-and-forget beast.
In recent years the demand for coil-spring Enduro forks has grown a lot. The Selva C has the same damping as the other models of the Selva family: compression, CTS (Compression Tuning System) with interchangeable valves, rebound, lock-out and lock-out threshold. On the elastic side, you can choose between 4 different coils: soft, medium, firm, and super firm (springs sold separately).
The spring preload can be adjusted externally through the knob on the right side of the fork. With the Selva C, Formula combined the ease of use and the feeling of the coil spring with the tunability of the CTS system, which allows almost unlimited configurations of the compression curve.
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.
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.
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.
