The new DVO Opal inline shock is their first shock without a piggyback reservoir. All of the compression circuitry is inside the main barrel, with a simple two setting adjustment knob on the outside. There’s also a 10-click rebound adjust bezel running around it.
Flip the lever either direction to firm things up.
Aimed at the XC / Trail crowd, it’s tuned for shorter travel bikes that are as likely to climb as descend. Offered in lengths up to 216mm eye-to-eye. Available next April, probably around $400.
The Beryl was shown at Taipei and is now hitting the market. It’s functionally similar to the Diamond, but with fewer external adjustments. Retail is $775.
All DVO shocks, including the coil Jade shock, are now or very soon will be vailable in metric and trunnion options.
