The latest platform from DVO is the Sapphire, which is built around 32mm stanchions, and designed to be more trail friendly than their existing models. It uses the same damper and tune as the more enduro oriented Diamond, but uses a different air spring that is housed within the stanchion tubes. It’s available as a 29er now, but the 27.5 models should start shipping in July.
Both the Sapphire and Diamond will ship with Boost lowers and can fit up to a 3.0” tire.
And in other news, the Topaz Air is finally shipping!

The McQueen is X-Fusion’s first entry into the plus bike market. It uses 34mm stanchions, Boost lowers, clears up to 3.25” plus tire, and will be available with either their standard RL2 Damper, or the more tunable Rough Cut HLR. The claimed weight is 4.5 lbs (2100 g) with 140mm of travel. Pricing will be comparable to the Sweep and they should start shipping in June.
X-Fusion has been teasing the Revel fork for years, but Sales Manager John Valera gave us his pinky promise that the first shipment is finally on its way. He’s never lied to us before.
