View as: Slideshow | One Page
The arrival of the new DVO Suspension products has been more anticipated than any other suspension in recent history. We were given the exclusive opportunity to try it out for first time in Whistler, BC. What follows is an in-depth recount of our two-day ride experience, with initial impressions from Dave Trumpore, Bryson Martin Jr. and Cedric Gracia. Grab a cup of joe, sit back, and get your learn on. Following countless hours of Pro rider and in-house testing, DVO has finalized their designs and will be taking things to production in the coming weeks, starting with the Emerald fork. Get pumped! It's finally here.
