Anyone know if DVO has plans to make a coil fork?

Still waiting on my Jade but I have a strong feeling coil is going to be sweet for my riding! It would be nice having a DVO coil fork to go with it.

My Sapphire 34 has same issue. It's the rubber o-ring that's part of the assembly. I've not bothered yet, but it should be a 2min job to replace it.

Can't imagine mine has worn out already? Or it didn't come with it? Going to test some different o-rings today I suppose. Messaged finalgear, he said the same thing, o-ring.

The o-ring in my Sapphire seemed to stop doing it's thing after 6-9 months. It's on my singlespeed so the rattle is pretty annoying!

Nothing wrong with a Diamond. I loved mine. But I’m also loving my Onyx SC too.


Is that a v1 5010?

I got a topaz for mine a couple of months ago, its been pretty good but I still feel like I can't get it quite dialed in perfect. Either too firm or ends up bottoming out a lot.

Yes. V1 5010. My topaz was great on this bike!

Have you tried volume spacers?
Different PSI settings?

Yeah I started with 2 spacers in the positive then switched to 3. None in the negative. Ran a range of psi, felt like I couldn't quite find the right balance between good tracking over bumps and composure on big hits. I liked it most when it was softer, felt really nice over roots and rocks, but used too much travel and didn't feel that good on step downs and drops.

Always ran 170 psi in the bladder because I'm pretty light. Almost always run the switch in full open.

Yes I always run it full open. Both my Topazes were/are running great.

DM Finalgear, or call Ronnie directly @DVO. They can help get you situated.

Good luck

I just chalked it up to the weird leverage curve. I'll hit them up and see if they can't get me sorted.

Try 2 negative and 0 positive spacers. I was struggling with getting the bottom out resistance I needed and keeping the initial stroke a little softer. This setups been working well for me.

Any ETA on the Progressive springs for JADE X ? Im about 210/20 kitted up and have a Ripmo AF on order - been advised maybe not so good for Chunks like me - Was going to go springdex route (Thanks for the help on this) but maybe not now ?

I read somewhere that the progressive spring will be available in late September. finalgear would know more though.

Ya he told me September

I am still waiting on the Opal so don’t hold your breath.
