If you noticed the upgrade option on the new Ibis Ripmo AF, you may have been wondering “Wait, there’s no such thing as a DVO Jade-X coil shock!” Well, now there is, and there’ll be more OEM partners offering it as an option on their frames. Basically, it’s like a coil version of Topaz, which means it uses their next generation of damping profiles, and uses a 3-position compression switch that gets really firm for climbing.
The idea was to get the damping profiles dialed in to work really well for most riders and most bikes without letting them get into the weeds on adjustments. Aimed at enduro and eMTB.
Updated DVO Jade Twin
If you do like getting into said weeds, the updated Jade Twin gets independent high and low speed for both Compression and Rebound. It will replace the Jade as the top option when it debuts early next year. Aimed at DH and enduro racing.
Stronger forks for eMTB
The DVO Onyx E1 eMTB forks get longer upper bushings with 25% more overlap, and a reinforced crown. Why? Because they found that a lot of an e-bike’s added weight just beats up regular forks, so they made theirs stronger.
