The RV1 and Metric both feature the Neutra-Valve bleed ports to release pressure built up in the lowers.

The brand new, exclusive Revel HLR upside down Trail/Enduro fork can be used for 27.5″, 29″ and 26″ wheels. It features 160mm travel for the 27.5″ and 26″, 140mm travel for the 29″, X-Fusion’s patented Gold-E-Lock system, a 20mm axle, HLR damping system, rebound adjustment and a 2 spring air system. The Revel HLR will retail for $1776 with the option Lifetime Service available for $124.

The Slant (26″), Sweep (27.5″) and Trace (29″) forks all get the new LockX axle system with 4 wedges that tighten down when you flip the QR lever. The Sweep is the same fork as the Slant, but with a dedicated offset for 650b. The offset for the 26″ is 42mm, the 27.5″ with a 46mm offset and the 29″ with a 51mm offset. The Trace also features the new Uni-Crown, a single piece crown steerer thats been forged and then machined down to reduce the material, but increase the stiffness.

X-Fusion Sweep

The Sweep series is our new 27.5 inch wheel fork for 2014. It spawned from our 26 inch Slant series that was developed to bridge the gap between lightweight trail forks and high performance all-mountain forks using a 34mm chassis. The Sweep has been given a dedicated offset of 46mm that you will now find on all of our 27.5 inch forks. New for 2014 and included on the Sweep is our LockX axle system allowing riders to quickly and safely remove and install their front wheels on the fly. Lastly, the Sweep comes equipped with our test winning and most efficient RL2 damper systems in a svelte, but stout chassis.

X-Fusion Trace

Developed for the new progression of 29er bikes with longer travel and aggressive angles, the Trace offers a stout chassis with smooth & efficient damping. The RL2 damper will eat away the small bumps while the mid-valve provides unprecedented mid to ending stroke support. Also offered in the Trace line is the new Uni-Crown. The Uni-Crown is a single piece crown steerer that increases chassis strength at that junction by over 50%! With the Trace’s progressive new-school damping and light and stout chassis, riders will no longer have shy away from the most technical bits of trail but will be looking for what they can conquer next.

    Any info about their rear shocks? I’m wondering if they’ll start offering a remote lockout option for the microlite RL in 2014.
