OVERVIEW & SPECS

Simplicity and Performance

The Diamond is our go-to fork for any time, anywhere. This is the product that paved the way for all DVO Suspension products and became the industry standard. The stiff, refined chassis allows the Diamond to remain precise under heavy loads and rough terrain. We reinforced the bushing locations with a build up of magnesium material that you can see in the center of the fork leg to create one of the stiffest chassis on the market.

4 clicks of low speed compression give quick access to firming up the fork for pedaling, opening up for descending, and mid settings for everything in between. Externally adjustable shim stack controlled rebound that is 100% dynamic, which means the rebound is controlled based on the speed at which oil flows through the system. The fork will react to what you throw at it and be ready for what’s next. You get an internally adjustable 3 position OTT feature that allows you to perfectly fine tune how the initial stroke feels without any mid/end stoke compromise.

Combining the stiff chassis characteristics with our exclusive features and damping design give our forks a unique ride feel unlike anything else on the market.

D2 Technology Package

The ultimate combination of simplicity and performance. A product line aimed at the “set it and forget it” rider. Our D2 line offers all the buttery smooth ride characteristics in a condensed feature package. The chassis is shared between D1 and D2 models so nothing is lost when it comes to steering precision and ride feel. D2 models feature a 4 position low speed compression, external rebound adjust, and an internal 3 position OTT “Off the Top” adjustment. Our D2 line is only available through an OEM spec’d bicycle.

  • Compression Bladder

    At the heart of the damper is our compression bladder. An industry exclusive feature that surrounds a bladder with a large volume of oil and compresses it throughout the entire stroke. This provides unrivaled small bump sensitivity, durability, and damping consistency for long rides in rough conditions.

    • No stiction
    • Large oil volume
    • Consistent Damping
    • Extremely Durable
    • Unique Ride Characteristics

  • D2 OTT (Off the Top)

    Our industry exclusive OTT feature really sets DVO product apart from anything else. It allows you to perfectly fine tune how the initial stroke feels without any mid/end stoke compromise. You really do the best of both worlds.

    The D2 OTT feature works by using an internally adjustable 3 position pin to add or remove preload on a coil negative spring. Once you’re about 30% of the way through the travel, the OTT spring is completely disengaged and you get into the positive air spring which controls your mid-stroke and bottom out. Set your air pressure for how you want the fork to feel in the mid to end stroke and fine tune your small bump sensitivity with the OTT feature.

     

  • Shim Stack Controlled Damping

    Controlling the damping circuit with shim stack gives unmatched dynamic control and endless room for custom tuning. Our dampers are for the tinkerer, the rider whose eyes light up at the idea trying different shim configurations, and wants a fork that lets them easily get into the inner workings to tune away to their heart’s content.

    Six clicks of low speed compression give quick access to firming up the fork for pedaling, opening up for descending, and mid settings for everything in between. Over thirty clicks of High Speed Compression give precise control for support on big hits. The rebound is controlled with our high flow mid-valve and shim stack to provide more damping as the oil forces increase. The bigger and harder the impact, the more the system will work and be ready for what’s next.
