Topaz 2 or T3Air?
What's the difference between the Topaz 2 and the Topaz T3AIR? The Topaz 2 has been optimized for use on a Trunnion mounted bike. These bikes typically have a lower leverage ratio which the HV can is tuned around. If you have a trunnion mounted bike with a lower leverage, (starting at 2.4 and lower) use the 2. If it has a higher leverage 2.4 and up, use the Topaz 3.
Is the hardware included?
Mounting hardware is not included.
What does it come with?
The Topaz comes with a DVO hard case, shock pump, and volume spacers.
BUILT FOR MODERN KINEMATICS
The Topaz 2 is the latest iteration of the Topaz Air series. This shock has been optimized to suit the needs of modern suspension kinematics working off a lower leverage ratio. The HV (high volume) negative reduces the breakaway force to counteract a lower starting leverage force from the linkage design. The housing is designed around a transverse reservoir layout to aid in oil flow and achieve more frame clearance.
The Topaz 2 is available in metric trunnion sizes with T3 compression, dynamic rebound, positive/negative volume adjust, and adjustable bladder pressure.
