Recently, there have been a lot of questions about the direction of Marzocchi Suspension, one of the original mountain bike suspension manufacturers and arguably the originator of the freeride movement. Bryson Martin Sr., John Pelino and Tom Rogers, the main guys at Marzocchi USA, left the company earlier this year and there has been a lot of concern and speculation about what their plans are and what the future holds for Marzocchi. At least some of that mystery was resolved today with the announcement of DVO, “Developed Suspension;” a brand new suspension company, “focused on the long travel market.” DVO will be backed by a dedicated production line at SR Suntour’s manufacturing facilities and they plan to introduce a 2013 line of front and rear mountain bike suspension products at Taiwan Bike Week in November. I think everyone agrees that Marzocchi’s most recent coil suspension products are excellent, so it will be very interesting to see what DVO has to show in November.
