DVO Suspension Announces 2019 Line

DVO Suspension 2019


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, no compromise, no restraint. High/Low Speed Compression, Rebound and OTT features all come standard.


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.

High/low speed compression, rebound and externally adjustable OTT features all come standard with the D1 line. This is available on Sapphire 34, Diamond, and Onyx Series.

Sapphire D1 19
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:

• Travel Range: 27.5 = 130-150mm 29 = 120-140
• Crown: 27.5 = 42mm offset 29= 44mm offset
• Stanchions: 34mm Tapered Alloy
• Wheel Size: 27.5, 29
• Color Options: Green, Blue, Black
• Retail Price USD: $899.00

Onyx SC 19
This is the Onyx SC D1. At 180mm of travel, this is our top of the line enduro race fork.

The little brother to the Onyx DC, this is the Onyx SC D1. At 180mm of travel, this is our top of the line enduro race fork. Featuring the proven D1 damper, high/low speed compression, rebound, and externally adjustable OTT. With 36mm stanchions and our stiffest chassis yet, charge hard into the roughest sections with confidence.

Quick Spec:

•Travel Range: 27.5 = 160-180mm
•Crown: 27.5 = 42mm offset
•Stanchions: 36mm Tapered Alloy
•Wheel Size: 27.5
•Color Options: Green, Blue, Black
•Retail Price USD: $1,049.00

Onyx DC 19
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. We retained the performance features known across our entire product line and made some additions necessary in a modern DH fork.

The Onyx DC D1 is fully loaded with high/low speed compression, rebound, OTT, and our new AVA system. Learn about AVA below-

Quick Spec:

• Travel Range: 203mm
• Crown: 48mm offset
• Stanchions: 36mm Tapered Alloy
• Wheel Size: 27.5
• Color Options: Green, Blue, Black
• Retail Price USD: $1,850.00

Advanced Volume Adjust feature in the Onyx DC to control end stroke progression.
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.

 Honestly I have no desire to upgrade as my diamond is THAT good!! Been faultless with impeccable performance (compared to my Pike and Lyrik) over the last 2 1/2 years. When it eventually needs replacing they will get my cash again (and that props to someone who names a fork like Beryl !)
  • 41 0
 Thanks for the great feedback and stoked you're loving your diamond!
  • 9 8
 What broke/went wrong on your Pike?
  • 8 6
 @DVOSuspension: I have trouble with my Diamond sitting too far into its travel. I'm airing it up 15-20 psi higher than the recomended for my weight, and I have the low speed compression at 3 and the high at 6. If I increase the compression anymore it loses that DVO plushness.

Don't get me wrong, everything else about the fork feels amazing, and I never bottom out harshly. I only notice it because it changes the geometry of the bike, and on steep, loose trails its harder with the front end wallowing halfway into its travel. Any suggestions?
  • 15 1
 @hamncheez: You should use numbers and include your OTT setting unless it's dynamic. Also you should just pick up the phone, they encourage it.
  • 2 0
 @hamncheez: I had the same issue when I first started riding mine. I ended up running the heaviest base tune setting recommended on their site. For my weight (165lbs) they recommend 110-125psi. I use 160psi and haven't had anymore issues. For reference, I'm 5'6", 165lbs and my setting are 160psi, LSC: 3, HSC 6, OTT: 11 and REB: 10. I may go a click or 2 either direction in HSC depending on trails.
I've noticed with every fork I've owned, I tend to be at a higher air pressure that recommended for my weight, as are other rider's I've talked to about settings.
I'd be curious to know other Diamond rider's settings compared to recommended per DVO website.
  • 6 1
 @glenward: Holy shit dude. I have to imagine that you are riding rampage or there's something the matter with your air cartridge. I weigh a little more than you and ride pretty mellow but I like good support so I run 115psi.
  • 3 0
 @glenward: I am 155 running the Boost 170 version of the Diamond. According to my current shock pump(every pump varies a little bit) I am running 120-125 PSI with a few clicks of high speed and a few clicks of low speed. I run my OTT all the way soft or a few clicks from it.

With my set-up, the fork is supple in the first 1/3 of travel, doesn't dive through 2/3, and doesn't blow through the last 1/3 and bottom out.

  • 2 0
 @High-Life: hey friend, hope you’re well. Issues I had with my Rs was mainly based on feel, I had BOS before and wanted THAT suppleness without the headache , the pike and Lyrik just plowed through the initial stroke and felt dead (even with tokens) to the point where I just felt like I couldn’t continue with the set up as I wanted something stiffer, my mx6 is very stiff on The headstock and it just felt under powered on the pike, switching to the diamond I noticed a massive change immediately- even better than my old Dville, love that fork
  • 2 0
 @crimedog: I've wondered the same thing and have thought about calling DVO to see if it's that far out of the ordinary and maybe something is wrong. I use most, if not all 160mm travel and it's always been like that since I got it back in 2016. Maybe @DVOSuspension could help me out when they're here...
  • 2 0
 @hamncheez: I did too. I’m around 142 pounds running a 160 travel diamond. I had 3.5 full turns on the OTT at 100 psi and found the fork with no weight was about a cm short of the full extension. Too much OTT sucked it down. I run two full turns of OTT and it’s good.
  • 4 0
 @hamncheez: When was the last time you serviced the damper? It might be a good idea to give me your body weight and the ott setting that you usually run on your fork.

 @glenward: too much OTT will start to pull the fork down. Back it off (counter-clockwise) until it stays at the max travel. If you have any trouble don't hesitate to call us, we're here to help!
  • 3 1
 @DVOSuspension: Hey guys. Thanks for responding. I'm not really sure if my problem is exactly a problem. I'm 165lbs and I use the recommended settings according to the DVO website for a 240+lbs rider. Is this out of the ordinary? Could there be an issue with the fork? I get all 160mm travel and the ride isn't harsh at all. I found the recommended settings for my weight made the fork bob and dive when I moved around the bike. I started adding air and eventually settled at 160psi. I adjusted the rebound, compression and OTT settings from there, once I found the air pressure that kept the front end from diving. I'll give you guys a call tomorrow instead of cluttering up the comments here. I thought the comments were only for complaining about wheel size and whining about standards. Thanks again

 DVO has great customer service. Had my first Diamond fork and Ronnie was kind enough to help me set it up. Then this year it developed a creak in the steerer. And as expected, got a reply right away from Ronnie. And through the help of @s4suspension, i got a brand new rootbeer diamond.

 Similar experience here. DVO stepped right up and replaced under warranty, with a quick turn around. I was impressed, and have recommended their product to others based on this experience.

 I want a coil DVO. I'm still running an old Marzocchi 66 fork. All I do is change the oil once or twice a year and replace the seals when they look janky and it keeps on running. I want to buy a new bike but I don't want an air fork.
  • 2 0
 Amen, brother. I miss my MZ RC3 Ti forks almost every ride I take. My Pike feels like garbage in comparison even with an AVY cartridge
  • 3 1
 I've been running my Diamond for well over a year now. Haven't done anything to it besides fiddle with the adjustments and check the air pressure. I can't say the same for my 44, 55, 66, or 888's I had years ago. I prefer the feeling of a properly designed air spring curve

 I'm a bit confused. If Bryson Martin was the man behind the great products at Marzocchi, why doesn't DVO offer a fork comparable to the MZ RC3 Ti forks? They were sublime. No fork I've used since has come even close.
  • 16 0
 Thanks for loving the RC3Ti, that was one of my favorite forks too. We are working on some coil projects and the caveat is getting it light enough to be accepted on a larger scale. We are constantly criticized for being a little heavier than our competitors, so the goal with the new coil projects will have to be as light as possible without compromising durability. Cheers, Bryson
  • 9 0
 @DVOSuspension: Thanks for your reply and your efforts, Bryson. You get even close to the RC3 and I'll be first in line. What a pity riders prefer light weight over performance.
  • 9 0
 @VelkePivo: You're welcome, weight and performance is a hard line to walk on. We all want to be as light as possible but with suspension, you can't go too light because it just won't work well nor last a season. The days of a pound of oil sitting in the forks (marzocchi history) are most likely over, I would build such a fork again but not sure how many I would sell!
  • 5 0
 @DVOSuspension: Just make drop in coil spring kits designed to work with your forks. Make them less than a 400$ push conversion and people will buy them, plenty of people buy push kits.
  • 4 1
 @DVOSuspension: If it takes a pound of oil to make a fork perform as well as an RC3 then it's worth it. I had been running rockshox and fox forks, and then I got an RC3. At the end of my first ride with the RC3 I got off the bike and just marveled that a fork could feel so good. It was a revelation. I've been chasing that feeling with Avalanche open bath cartridges mated to air forks, but it's not even close. I'll probably end up going the PUSH coil conversion this winter.

I remember a review of the 44 RC3 where the guy raved about it, and said something like, "it could weigh as much as a boat anchor for performance like this." That's how I feel about it.

Last thing as I know I'm on a low-key rant: I rode with a friend who had a very expense BOS fork. I had the 44RC3 I bought for $267 on ebay. We switched bikes and my friend was honest enough to say the RC3 was a much, much better fork.

So, thanks for the memories, I guess ;-)

 One of the things I loved about old marzocchi is they lasted forever and were comparatively inexpensive. I understand that innovation and r&d costs. Some day when I can afford one I'll look into dvo in the hopes they'll last. I've still got an early '00s z4 or z3, '04 888, and an '02 shiver SC, in working good working order and on original seals. My '08 66 however is toast after 3 sets of seals and multiple rebuilds. I hope dvo follows old school marzocchi in durability.

 I was browsing this old thread and saw this, DVO now has a 44mm offset Diamond 29 and the Sapphire 29 is 44mm, as well. I am not sure about 27.5, but I think I saw that they are doing the 37mm offset on those, as well.

 I absolutely LOVE my DVO products. Had the Diamond this summer and loved it! Supple off the top, with plenty of support for the rough stuff and bigger hits. Just upgraded to the new Onyx SC and my first impressions are that it is amazing! Its incredible how these forks perform. I've ridden pretty much everything, Fox 36, Lyric, X-Fusion... Nothing compares to the adjustability and feeling of confidence these products provide. Keep up the great work, you've got a customer for life.

Your suspension makes the rough seem to disappear and so we can ride harder, faster and longer!

 @WasatchEnduro: Good question, the Topaz 2 is very similar to the Topaz 1. The difference with the model shown above is the air spring that's made for the maestro system. The reservoir is mounted sideways to help with oil flow and clearance as well. Hope that helps!
  • 1 0
 @WasatchEnduro: The Topaz 2 and Topaz 1 offer very similar performance, it just depends on which bike you're running. The damping profiles are basically the same but the air spring volumes are different. For the Stumpy, the Topaz 1 works great and we've sold quite a few and will continue to make more designs to fit those bikes.

 @DVOSuspension: Thanks for the heads up on waiting for the improved Jade. I was on the same thinking as @RussellTinka for my Bronson 2.0, just for the more rough downhill tracks/days but sounds like I'll wait till next season for it. BTW the Topaz 1 I have is freaking amazing and really makes the bike super playful and yet plush when it needs to be.

Also have to give the Beryl a shout out too! I swear that the small bump compliance is really close to the 2013 coil sprung Fox 40 I ran for a few years on my DH and I haven't wished for the external adjustments that the Diamond has, the initial tunes for the fork are great for me at 200 lbs riding weight.

 Do DVO forks get dyno tested before getting sent out and if not how do you account for small machining errors in the damping circuit? thanks
  • 13 0
 Good questions, yes every one of our products get dyno tested before leaving the factory. There will always be errors in machining here and there, but it's having the right quality control process to catch the bad parts before they get assembled. Every suspension product will differ in damping very slightly, the key is keeping it a slight difference vs a drastic one

 Scrolling to my disappointment not to find mention of the legendary Emerald. I love my Emeralds, so my question is...Are the Onyx better?
What I love about the Emerald is the OTT, having thats set to sensitive one can add extra air pressures ramp up the LSC and the fork has excellent traction, doens't extreme brake dive, and is super forgiving on hits.

Also as a DVO fan boy, why the name "DVO" internet search results on Domestic Violence Orders aren't the best look. Lol

#loveDVO
  • 6 0
 The Emerald will return better than ever with a new damper and a few other goodies! We will also make the new damper thats used in the Onyx retrofittable to your current Emerald, its coming soon!

DVO is short for "Developed" and its a term we have been using for a while when working on engineering drawings and special projects, we thought it would be cool for the company name and easy to remember.

Thanks for the love and always here to help our riders!

 Dual crowns are just more expensive to make and assemble. You have more materials, two upper crown molds, more oil, longer stanchions and internal rods, etc. The overall volume is less as well, if we made tens of thousands the economies of scale would kick in and the price can be lower. Very good question though, hope this helps.

 Should I buy the Sapphire 32 at a discount or wait for the new 34? I’m 170 lbs and slowly getting into trails with some jumps (table top, 2-3 ft drops) with my short travel 120mm FS 29er. Absolutely hate how my RockShox 2017 revelation RL feels

 I'm not an expert but I think that should be plenty of fork for you at this time. You may want to consider setting it up differently. Maybe watch some videos on proper suspension setups. I have seen a few very detailed and good ones from racing mechanics on youtube.

 Or you can buy a new fork. Your call.

 Love the Tpaz year shock. Other brands get alot of media hype. I took tge plunge and ditched my fox shock. The Topaz has took some hammer and the performance is ace. DVO has the best customer service. Can the Topaz get some Topaz 2 upgrades or is it a Giant only shock.
  • 2 0
 Thanks for riding DVO and always here to help our riders! The Topaz 2 will be available for other bikes but in limited sizes for now, the major difference is in the air spring but the damping profiles are quite similar.

 I'm so happy you guys decided to shorten the length of the Garnet Dropper. I've been running one since last December, with a diamond boost 170, and topaz on my bird. I might consider buying the new dropper, if only this one wasn't so new. I gotta say, you guys do have great customer service. I live in the philippines, and shoot emails to you guys at weird times, and always get replies back from Ronnie, even if it's 1AM in the morning in LA. Thanks for the awesome products Smile

 I love my Diamond. When you call DVO with a question someone actually answers the phone. There's one thing my Diamond doesn't do that RS does.....migrate air into the lower legs. 235# geared running 120psi, HSC15 clicks, rebound 12 clicks, LSC open. Thanks DVO for making a great fork

 @DVOSuspension: I'd ride your rear shock too if I could, unfortunately you don't make anything to fit a V1 Following. Or do you? Wasn't there something about a new single can air shock coming out?

 ava system is a less efficient version of the one in the 2014 fox 40 where the piston was secured with 8 spacers to adjust height on the shaft no extra doohickeys to mess with. The newer air spring that replaced it 1-2years later was better but I did miss the simple adjustable topcap. Stupid tokens

 I LOVE my DVO Beryl and Topaz combo, those pieces are my favorite parts of my entire bike! I will definitely stick with DVO for all of my future bikes, if not just because their performance is better than any big-name brand out there, but because of their AMAZING customer service! Thanks, Matt and Ronnie, you guys rock!

 Thanks a ton for the great words and really stoked you're happy with the Beryl and Topaz. Let us know if you need anything! Cheers, DVO

 Hey DVO, sorry to beat a dead horse but,
Regarding the Onyx SC D1, what happened to the plan for the 20x110 boost axle that was originally stated by yourselves?
BTW, my Emerald and Jade set up is 2nd to none!!
Cheers again guys!

 The volume adjuster is something my diamond is lacking. Have had far too many harsh bottom outs on what is otherwise an excellent fork in every other regard.
  • 2 1
 More compression less rebound?
  • 2 0
 I believe you can add a few CC's of oil to the air chamber. Adding oil should make the fork ramp up more because it reduces volume. Have you tried running slightly higher air pressure and playing with the OTT?
  • 1 0
 What psi are you running? What's your weight? I'm 230 and have yet to have a harsh bottom out
  • 2 0
 Yes, add oil to the chamber through the valve stem. Give them a call for advice they are awesome.
  • 2 0
 Ive already added 5cc of oil to the air spring, did not do much of anything to combat the hard bottom outs. Im around 170, fork is set at 150mm on a trail bike and running around 115psi. OTT wont affect bottom out but I do have that set where I like, and the HSC is still set at several clicks from open. I agree that the DVO guys are killer, and their products are top shelf.
  • 1 0
 @elliotkelley: Add air. You'll have to add OTT and rebound to compensate but that's the whole point of the OTT system is that you can run the pressure where you need and also retain suppleness. You can try HSC but it may feel harsh on regular stuff.
  • 1 0
 @crimedog: I was going to comment that the guide says 125psi for his weight. I always go max pressure and adjust accordingly.
  • 1 0
 @elliotkelley: Bump up the psi to like 120-125 and crank that OTT so it is very supple. I am 155 and ride at a pretty high level, I am running that same pressure range.

 I don't know the specifics of that fork but there is generally a way to reduce volume even if it doesn't have a built in way. You can typically add grease or fox float fluid to the air chamber.
  • 1 0
 @elliotkelley: 5cc of oil is not very much. You may need more if you don't end up just adding more air.

 Any updates to the integrated fender on the Diamond or Onyx SC that is bigger?

I have a 2018 Diamond and feel like if the fender were a touch longer it would prevent mud hitting my face a little better

 The Onyx SC fender is a bit longer, the Diamond is a bit smaller for frame clearance reasons

 Is there a 15x100 650b Sapphire 34 coming?

I am in the market for a 34 130 650b fork and currently looking for a Fox Factory. If you have that coming soon, then I will wait, especially since the snow is coming.
  • 2 0
 The new Sapphire 34 27.5" is definitely on its way, should be shipping out this week. but the axle spacing will be 110x15. Hope to have you as a customer soon. Cheers, DVO

 Anyone got an idea on price of the 0nyx SC in the UK? Also will it be floating piston with spring or bladder style internal?
  • 1 0
 The Onyx SC uses a bladder system that we use on most of our other models and the USA retail is about $1100, not sure how that translates to the UK price. Wind Wave is our distributor there and will have inventory soon.
