DVO Emerald Inverted Fork- Review
My V10 with an Emerald weighs 35 pounds. Does anyone really think that is too heavy for bike that only goes downhill? I have put on somewhere around 800,000 feet of vert on my Emerald this year. It's on the original seals, and has had the oil changed once and was totally clean and clear when dumped. It has not leaked a drop and it's still as slippery as ever with no sign of wear. Mine has proven to be as plush and reliable as a shiver in its hey day, but sits high in it travel, tracks very well and is incredibly tuneable. Yes, DVO helped me out with this fork, but since then 4 of my friends have gone on to buy one after riding mine. So far none have even had an oil change and they are all stoked with them. If you dump most of the oil out the fork like the competition the weight is not far off. Oil has benefits in excess of the minimal weight gain on a DH bike, especially if you're like me and you don't want to work on it. Brakes, suspension and tires; three places where you shouldn't be sacrificing performance for weight. Take it out elsewhere and you can still have a 35lb DH bike.

That was a spinout ride to the top with you mate. Captured it nicely.

Thanks mate! The night session was pretty full on, and if the weather kept up the way it was, there was no way it was going to happen. But luckily we had only a brief shower once the sun rose, so conditions kept improving all day until it was as good as it ever gets from the hike-a-bike down by the evening. Helped us get our best lap times around hour 22.

It certainly saved my hands and arms. The adjustability was awesome and I was able to set it up perfect for the hectic conditions and the long task at hand. Cheers

Same set start to finish. They would be more worn if the track was dry, but half the time we were balls deep in mud. I believe there will be before and after close-up photos in the upcoming article.

No mechanicals at all! Hard to believe considering the conditions.
