    Prime with a DVO Topaz

    Anyone running a DVO Topaz on their Prime? How do you like it compared to other shocks you've tried?

    I have a rune with a topaz now if that can have partially relate... with the rune I've been on ccdb coil, fox X2, dvo jade and now the topaz. I absolutely love the fact that I can tune the negative air spring to give the rune ample mid stroke support and then ramp it up hard for any heavy hitting.

    I'm thinking of adding a shim on the compression circuit and removing one negative band though. Also adding a shim to the lever assembly compression circuit to add more dynamics to the lever adjustment. Lastly removing a shim on the rebound and cranking the rebound knob up more so that my hsr circuit is fast but my lsr circuit is slower.

    Prob a little more than what you're asking but it's a great air shock for the KS linkage!

    I put a Topaz on my 2017 Prime about halfway through last summer, replacing the stock Monarch shock. The result was a huge improvement in sensitivity without having to run low pressure / high sag. My only complaint is that I waited so long to make the change.

    Iíll round out the comments with a Topaz on my Spitfire. Love it. Pos/neg chambers tunable, plush and very responsive to climb switch when I use it, however with the Banshee susp design I find I donít need it. My frame came with an XFusion OX2 shock that blew up when really put to the test.
