Selva R - Free your potential
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 (Silver) according to weight, like any traditional forks, in addition to that you can also change the pressure of the negative chamber (Bronze) 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. With the Selva R you get two CTS valves, Gold (installed) and Blue (in the box).
Thanks to the Neopos (one is already included into the Selva R) the air spring is further refined, a riding experience that’s not possible to achieve with a traditional air fork.
Selva R creates a tuning potential that has been unachievable until now. Every single parameter of the Selva R 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’s up to you to unlock it.

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 technology 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 the result will be a more constant, predictable and comfortable air suspension. Meaning, more like that of a coil spring suspension comfort.
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.
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.
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 the Nero C we had a fundamental aim in mind, finding the perfect balance point between stiffness and flex, this is the same as our standard forks. Thanks to the Hexagon Design, the natural flex of the fork has been dramatically decreased with this lightweight method. In this way, we have managed to combine the advantages of the standard boost with the stiffness of a traditional fork.
ILS Intergrated 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.
IFT Internal Floating System
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.
