Bryson Martin | The Finishing Touch 7

DVO Suspension has been testing the Emerald, their revolutionary inverted downhill fork, for over 8 months now. Through rigorous riding and athlete input they have been able to tune the fork to perfection. Whether it was Cedric Gracia pushing the Emerald down numerous UCI World Cup courses, the Arma Energy/Evil Bikes team getting tuning dialed, or Bryson Martin Jr. finding just how far he could push the technology he helped create, the Emerald has been tested by racers and riders alike.

Of all the places to put the finishing touches into the masterpiece created by the originators of gravity oriented suspension, WHISTLER was the one destination we felt culminated every aspect of riding in one mountain. Check out the last testing and get ready for the release of the Emerald this September.

    Goddamn, the marketing and hype around these has been nuts. I don't really ride gravity, and I don't own a DH bike. Hell, my main ride is a rigid SS. But I want one. I don't have a bike to put it on, but I want one.

    I was thinking the same thing. If these DVO guys are just half as good at building a suspension as they are at marketing then this fork is going to be a beast. I've never seen so much hype before a product was even released for testing.

    Thanks guys! We can say our first order of expertise is designing and engineering suspension and when you have awesome products the marketing comes naturally.

    It just shows that what currently on the market isn't fully cutting it. People are looking for something better. Hopefully everything lives up and there's another quality option on the market. Much luck to you guys.

    "What [is] currently on the market isn't fully cutting it." Really?! Man, IMO, it's a great time to be into bikes. The product offerings and their performance is excellent right now; a noticeable improvement from just a few years ago. I suspect DVO will only add to the great options.

    I agree, there are alot of great mountain bike products overall. But in this specific market, being long travel downhill forks, the options are still at this point pretty limited.
