The new DVO Beryl is slightly more affordable version of the Diamond enduro fork, basically with fewer external adjustments. Up top is low speed compression, and on bottom is low speed rebound. The O.T.T. (Off The Top) negative spring adjustment on the opposite leg is now an internal spacer system that adds preload to the spring, versus a dial on the outside. Functionally and internally, it’s the same, with the same casting, bushings and seals.
The only other difference, other than appearances and name, is a bolt-on axle versus the QR thru axle. Retail is $750 (target), versus $1,000 for the Diamond. Claimed weight is 2,080g. Travel ranges from 140mm-170mm for the 27.5 model, and 130mm-160mm for 29er, adjustable in 10mm increments.
The Garnet dropper seatpost came available in January, but is already sold out, so they didn’t make much of an announcement. Expect more to start shipping in April, retail is $400. We covered it in detail here.
The Onyx is an upcoming dual crown fork, giving them a more traditional DH fork compared to their inverted Emerald. It uses 36mm stanchions (for comparison, the Rockshox Boxxer is 35mm, Fox 40 is 40mm) and features the Diamond damper cartridge with a sealed bladder.
Air pressure release valves are located at the top of each leg, letting you compensate for temperature and altitude swings as necessary. Why? Because changes in those things affect the differential between internal and external air pressure and can affect fork performance. Not the air pressure you’re intentionally pumping into the fork, but all the air that’s inside the fork body surrounding the damping cartridge, etc.
Other features include external O.T.T. adjustment, and internal air volume adjustments by moving spacers from one side of the piston to the other to effectively change the size of the air chamber. All of the chips stay inside, they’re just moving from side to side. Price should be around $1,700, weight around 2,900g.
Lastly, they’re adding a version of the Topaz rear shock that’ll directly mount to the shock yoke on the Specialized Stumpjumper FSR and Enduro. They’ve also got trunnion and metric versions of their shocks now, too.
