Formula Nero R – Perfectly adaptable to your ride

What does every Downhill rider look for? The answer is simple: the perfect suspension. Unfortunately, however, that does not exist. There is no such thing as a perfect Trail. Trails vary from place to place and from run to run.

Instead of finding a setup that works quite well in most situations, instead the aim should be to find the most easily and quickly adaptable suspension for any situation. This was Formula's goal when designing their first Downhill fork.

The Formula Nero R features a sealed damper with adjusters for high and low speed compression, as well as rebound speed. On the air side, the Nero R fork is equipped with the 3Air system, made up of three air chambers working simultaneously (positive, negative and end-stroke progressivity).

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 3Air technology features a three air chamber system: end-stroke progressivity (gold), positive air chamber (silver) and negative air chamber (bronze). The use of this technology allows full customization of the spring curve. The big advantage is not only to be able to shape the fork’s performance the finest amount, but also to do it quickly and easily.

Thanks to the 3Air system, you will be able to accurately adjust your fork without taking it of the bike, without using tools, without having to use internal air volume spacers; all you will need is a shock pump.


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.

Firm Locking System

Downhill forks are constantly exposed to an extraordinary amount of stress, especially in the thru axle area. When designing Firm, the aim was to make wheel changes quick and easy, getting rid of multiple screws on the lowers, and at the same time offering the maximum stiffness. The Firm locking system centres on a 20 mm thru axle that is secured by a "counter knob" that is tightened after the axle is installed preventing it from unscrewing and providing maximum security and minimum weight.
