The DVO Topaz is their new Enduro rear shock that’ll be coming this fall. It’s a complete air shock with 3-position compression switch that goes from wide open to medium to heavily damped. That last setting is not locked out, just very firm.
The piggy back reservoir will use a bladder based, air charged chamber that manages oil displacement just like on the coil-sprung Jade. Normal shocks use a nitrogen charged chamber with an IFP floating piston, but DVO’s JP says the benefit of the bladder system is less initial stiction.
It’ll be available in 200×50, 200×57 and 215×63, retail, price and actual release date are all TBD.
The compression setting lever is big and set off to the side, which should make it easy to reach and use while riding. The rebound knob sits top center.
Air valve is on the opposite side.
The Diamond enduro fork, which has 35mm stanchions and a bevy of adjustments, is finally out of production after being teased for nearly a year and is shipping now.
Separate high and low speed compression adjustments are a nice touch, but that’s really only the beginning. Check our full tech coverage on the Diamond here and here.
The fender is easily removed or added and comes stock with all aftermarket forks.
