A TALAS (Travel Adjust Linear Air Spring) cartridge needs to be serviced every 200 hours or around 2 years.
There are several benefits to keeping your TALAS System freshly serviced, The TALAS system acts as the forks air spring and in doing so does a lot of work on each ride, Its oil and seals can deteriorate over time reducing the fork performance and causing excess stiction. Other symptoms of an over due TALAS system service are air loss, oil loss, a stiff adjusting knob or loss of travel modes.
A TALAS service is best performed with a complete or general fork service.
During a TALAS Service we will;
- Do a complete tear down of the system in which all components are cleaned
- We will fit a new low friction seal kit
- Replace the oil with new low friction oil
