Leads the field in lightweight XC forks
The ThirtyThree is a concentrated combination of technology, a suspension created for modern mountainbike needs. With its 1580g the ThirtyThree is an extremely light XC fork. The Internal Floating technology
(IFT) adds smooth flow unequalled by any other product in the same market sector.
Despite the extremely light weight, the ThirtyThree stanchions give it extraordinary strength, which permits it to excel even in all mountain riding, thanks to its 130 mm travel. The Remote Cartridge Control
(RCC) allow the rider to control fork compression straight from the handlebars and while in action.
The Compression Tuning System
(CTS) permits, with extreme ease, to adapt the ThirtyThree to all riders’ needs.
It does not matter if you are a cross country racer or a weekend warrior hungry for epic bike rides, the ThirtyThree will be your irreplaceable companion.
RCC - Remote Cartridge Control
Remote Cartridge Control is an on-the-fly sytem that finely tunes the overall compression. In most of the forks, tuning options must be done on the fork itself or remotely by a mechanical cable rotating a knob. With our RCC, we took a completely different approach: a remote adjustment that becomes integrated into the cartridge. We give the riders 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.
IFT - Internal Floating Technology
The IFT (Internal Floating Technology) is what truly differentiates our forks from any other fork. Smoothness is very important in terms of suspension performance. After many tests on stanchion coatings, we now know that they have a minimal effect on reducing friction. With the IFT we 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, our hydraulic cartridge is structurally merged with the stanchions and lower legs. In a riding situation, our internals compensate for the external stresses placed on the fork. This causes an incredible reduction of friction.
ILS - Integrated Locking System
ILS (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.
CTS - Compression Tuning System
On our forks we have a wide range of compression adjustments. Low speed compression can be adjusted by simply rotating a knob. Where we pushed the technology forward is on the high speed compression. With our CTS (Compression Tuning System) we have 7 different kinds of valve heads. With this system, we can cover any kind of riding and this makes Formula forks highly customizable by any riders by using a simple tool that anyone can use in their own workshop.
