    DVO Suspension

    So I got to ride around the parking lot on the New DVO suspension inverted fork...One word...plushness....I have been looking for the plushness of a Shiver for a long time. The 888 is nice but...oh my...I can't wait till these come out...supposedly at Sea Otter, DVO will have a booth and a few demo bikes to try out....

    Can't give out any tech info (but lets just say you are really gonna like)...pictures are missing the carbon/foam arch support that adds extra stiffness.

    Sea Otter you are going to start seeing them a lot

    FYI ...besides green they will come in black

    That is so sick and you are lucky to have ridden one. Did you ride on some dirt with it? Would love to put those forks on my ride in black! So sexy! Do you know how much $$$$ by any chance?

    I'll be looking at the Emerald and the new 40 to replace my AVA Boxxer this upcoming season.

    They have done a great job communicating with their potential customers. I'd like to know more about the air spring.

    Nice! I miss my Shiver as well. Still riding my 2005 888 RC. It's been a good fork, but it's time for a new one.

    Who did you blow to get to bounce on that? The 2 engineers haven't even bounced on it yet.

    no dirt riding, but would love to "borrow" it for a day (they would never get it back)

    price comparable to 888....so price won't be so high (cheaper then dorado)...yeah it was awesome...as soon as I can get one I will be riding one....told them I would give cash for a pre-order...but they said wait....they could release them right now but are still doing testing to make double sure you get the best product out there

    Wait to you see all the dials on the fork....it looks like an instrument panel off a plane or a high end watch....lots of adjustments to fit riding style and terrain.

    me too...I love my Shiver and this new fork feels great...I wouldn't be giving up the 888 Ti so fast...also the weight is lower then a Shiver...around 3000 grams or 6 1/2....that lower then my 888 ti

    the arch was off to the mold shop to start production...they will be made out of Carbon and foam and the process makes it stiff....will add stiffness to the fork

    but what people don't understand is

    A) they do flex test with fork extended...not in travel
    B) the slight flex you get gives you a better ride...meaning through a rock garden you get a smoother ride (gives a little) instead of a bouncing around more on direct and side hits of a regular fork.
    C) the picture of the fork right now is missing the stantion guard/arch support which will make it stiffer

    I don't know everything about the air spring but you can ask questions here or ask Ronnie here for more personal service

    definitely hold out for the Emerald....this will be the hottest selling fork on the Market (for good reason) by summer...

    On paper this sure seems to be the real deal. Very intriguing indeed and what an opportunity to hop on one preproduction. It will be really interesting to see just how they perform when they are released. I hope that they hit a home run with this fork and the new shock they are developing.

    I am telling you...it is going to be a grand slam out of the box...they could release it right now, but they want it to be the best fork out on the market with no flaws...so when you say DVO Suspension you will think Top Notch Quality..that is why they are still testing...yeah they are losing money now, but for years they will be known as the most dependable fork
