The Formula Selva JB

Josh Bryceland Gets LTD Edition Formula Selva

We built Josh his perfect Formula Selva fork. Now it’s available for you.

Fun, reliable and with a broad range of talents, Josh and the Selva S have a lot in common.

We asked Josh what his ideal fork would feel like. He told us that he wanted lots of traction and comfort at the beginning of the stroke, then to ramp up hard to soak up the hits. We had ideas how to achieve this, so we met up with Josh to do some testing on his home trails in the north of England.

The Formula Selva S has a wide range of adjustments, so before making any big changes we experimented with small changes to air pressure and clicks of compression and rebound. Then we moved on to changing Compression Tuning System (CTS) valves and Neopos options. These are all changes any Selva S owner can make quickly and easily.

In back-to-back testing Josh found the red CTS valve worked best for him, giving the supple initial travel he was looking for with a ramp up in compression at the end of the stroke for stability. We thought we could improve things further.

We built him a custom CTS valve for this Formula Selva. An evolution of the red CTS valve, this new valve maintains comfort and traction at the start of the stroke, then ramps up even more at the end. We also fitted our updated low-progression air spring.
Using the same hardware as our well-proven single air spring, this air assembly has a larger positive chamber to give a less progressive spring curve, making it easier to use all the travel. Combined with the custom CTS, Josh had a fork that gave him initial sensitivity for feel and grip, while retaining stability.
With this Formula Selva, Josh now has his perfect fork, and we want other riders to have the opportunity to try it.
