PRESS RELEASE: DVO Suspension
If you could do it all over again, would you? Bryson Martin Sr. (DVO founder) did. History may know him as the man behind all the great products and innovations at Marzocchi Suspension for over 25 years. After a great run, it was time to start fresh. When the creative flow stops, something new is needed and DVO Suspension was born.
In 2012 the brand with three letters and a green box was created. A rider propelled company driven by the passion for high performance suspension. This was not to be a brand with a shallow logo, this was going to be a strong brand full of the personality and presence of the employees and customers. We are proud to say we have an amazing crew here that genuinely care for the brand. That same care goes straight to the riders that utilize every product we make. We strive to offer you, the rider, 3 important things; amazing customer service, a high quality & well made product, and a feeling of connection to the brand. When you ride DVO, you’re in the family and we will always treat you that way. (Go ahead and call us, we’ll answer the phone!)
Companies say “we” far too often, but who is we? This is us, what really makes DVO so special. A company living by our slogan “For Riders By Riders”
Six and a half years later, we've developed a full line of high performance and unique suspension products. Below we run you through all the new additions and updates to current models. For full details and specs on all products, please visit our website: dvosuspension.com

D1 is our premium line of suspension forks. Hand built with all the features and performance you’ve grown to expect from DVO. The D1 system is based off the proven diamond damping design featuring a compression bladder and full shim stack controlled dynamic damping.

The all new Sapphire D1 gets upgraded to 34mm stanchions, stiffer chassis, & more progressive air spring
The new Sapphire D1 is bigger and better- simple as that. Our goal was to create a confidence inspiring trail fork that could provide control and stability in rough conditions. The fork received a complete chassis overhaul that utilizes 34mm stanchions to keep up with today’s demanding riding standards. A slightly modified air spring provides an extremely supple beginning stroke, improved mid-stroke support, and a progressive end for control on the big hits. Combine that with the proven damping features and characteristics of the Diamond, this is the new standard. Quick Spec:

The long awaited Onyx DC D1 is here. Tested and proven on the world cup circuit with the Giant Factory Off Road Team.
World Cup Born- Race Ready. Since day 1 of development phase, the Onyx DC went straight to the hands of Marcello Gutierrez and proven on the toughest tracks in the World Cup Circuit. We meshed the desires of elite racers with performance characteristics to suit the everyday shredder and long travel enthusiast.

AVA: Advanced volume adjust is a new feature for us. It allows the rider to change the height of the air piston & control end stroke progression.
Using a 32mm socket or open end wrench, remove the AVA unit from the top of the stanchion, remove or insert the volume clips on either side of the piston. Put a clip on top, the fork becomes more progressive. Put a clip on the bottom to achieve more travel. AVA works together with the OTT (off the top) feature to give you complete control of the air spring.
