DVO

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.

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.
