When DVO was founded, their first project was an inverted downhill fork. In just a few short years, their product line has expanded to encompass forks and shocks for everything from trail to DH.
Their newest project is a dropper post. Rather than try and reinvent the wheel, they actually paired up with a company who manufacturers dropper components for a number of competitors. Their solution was a cable actuated post with infinite adjust that relies upon a hydraulic cartridge. An internal air spring helps bring the seat back up, but in case you experience air loss, they added a secondary coil spring.
Retail is TBD, but they’re hoping to launch this June around or just below the $500 mark. The posts will initially be available with either 125mm or 150mm drop for 30.9 or 31.6 posts. They’ll also have shims available for larger sizes.
