From the battlefield of slopestyle competitions, to the urban pump tracks around the globe; riders depend on durable, no fuss suspension components to deliver the good times they rely on. Hucking a 20-foot step down, charging a set of rollers, or pinning it into the apex of a berm – your fork is your first line of defense and it can’t let you down. You need a fork that can handle it all, without a shadow of a doubt. Your fork has arrived, introducing the newest little brother to the Bomber family – DJ.
While DJ may be the shortest and youngest sibling, it’s certainly no runt of the litter. DJ is a wolf in sheep’s clothing…cherry red sheep’s clothing, that is. Sharing the same 36mm chassis as its older sibling Z1, but in a dedicated 26” wheel configuration, with a 20x110mm axle designed for maximum stiffness and compatibility with existing DJ and DH front hub spacing standards. For those with 15x100mm front hub spacing, don’t worry, we’ve got you covered with a tidy little conversion kit.
The same buttery, bottomless, and no-nonsense GRIP damper found in Z1 and 58 is also employed in DJ. Coupled with an EVOL air spring, allowing you to perfectly – and easily – dial in your ride from sag to end stroke. And with a fixed travel of 100mm the only decision you’re left with is to choose if you prefer gloss red or matte black. It doesn’t get much simpler than that. Best of all, at $699 USD, DJ is as easy on the wallet as it is on the eyes.
