Onyx DC D1
OVERVIEW & SPECS
WHY Onyx DC?
World Cup Born- Race Ready. Since day 1 of development phase, the Onyx DC went straight to the hands of Marcelo Gutierrez and proven on the toughest tracks in the World Cup Circuit. We meshed the desires of elite racers with performance characteristics to suit the everyday shredder and long travel enthusiast. We retained the performance features known across our entire product line and made some additions necessary in a modern DH fork.
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. Shim stack controlled rebound that is 100% dynamic. meaning, 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. 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. At the top of the air spring sits the AVA unit. Advanced Volume Adjust is a new feature for us. It allows the rider to change the height of the air piston & control end stroke progression. AVA works together with the OTT (off the top) feature to give you complete control of the air spring.
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.

D1 is our premium line of suspension forks. Hand built with all the features and performance you’ve grown to expect from DVO. The D1 system is based off the proven diamond damping design featuring a compression bladder and full shim stack controlled dynamic damping. 4 points of external adjustment give you access to over 30 clicks of High Speed Compression, 6 clicks of Low Speed Compression, External OTT “Off the Top” adjustments, AVA “Advanced Volume Adjust” and Dynamic Rebound.
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.

• Unique Ride Characteristics
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 OTT feature works by using a 5mm allen key to externally 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.
AVA - Advanced Volume Adjust
An all new feature taking volume tuning to the next level. Use volume spacers to change the depth of the air piston, effectively reducing or increasing the air volume. Perfectly tune the amount of overall progression you desire.
With the addition of the AVA system and our exclusive OTT Off the Top adjustment, you now have complete control over the beginning, mid, and end stroke. Now that’ll get ya stoked.
