I have been running this fork (revelation) on my spot for the last few months and I am now trying to dial in a few of the smaller technical setting.
Currently I am running pos pressure at 120 and neg at 110. This is giving me approx 30mm of sag and the fork feels fantastic - very plush and great small bump complience. Rebound is set almost at full speed.
Each ride I am getting close to full travel at some stage, with a few small jumps, drops offs etc. I weight about 170 with all the riding gear on.
So now I have started playing with the adjustable compression damping to "help combat brake dive and squatting under hard cornering" as the manual says. The manual goes on to say, and this is the bit I don't get.
"The compression setting does not adversly effect your forks performance over high speed impacts"
This is what I don't get or understand how the fork operates. Is a brake dive relatively slow in comparison to hitting trail objects at speed. How does the fork work internally that slower speed compression can be weeded out as apposed to high speed. Would not brake dive look very similar to the fork as say a drop off over rocks or a tree root at relatively slow speed on a technical track.
Appreciate the knowledge from Homers. Thanks.
