1 1/8 steerer tube. Threadless. Similar (Best - same) travel.

Look for similar travel to the one you've got already (I assume 80-100mm?), and if you are buying secondhand, make sure the steerer is long enough (the bit that goes through the frame from the top of the fork to the stem), these are usually cut down to fit a specific frame / rider setup.
Also check that it is compatible with the type of brakes you have; some fork are disc specific.
