It's not often that a new suspension start-up hits the scene running, but that's exactly what DVO did when they debuted their inverted Emerald downhill fork back in 2012. Five years on and DVO's catalog has grown to include a dropper post, multiple offerings for the mid-travel crowd, both coil and air-sprung shocks, and they also recently debuted their lower priced Onyx DC downhill fork
. That's a whole lot of headway in the high-end suspension segment, a market that, up until just a few years ago, only had two or three major players.
So, do you have a question about one of DVO's forks or shocks? Need some suspension setup advice? Curious as to what's coming in the future? DVO's Lead technician Ronnie Dilan, along with Marketing and Product Development specialist Bryson Martin Jr, are here to answer your questions, beginning today at 10:00 AM PDT.

A man of many hats, Bryson Martin Jr. can also more than hold his own on a bike. That speed led him to a spot on the Junior Worlds Team for the USA back in 2010, and he hasn't gotten any slower since, a fact that works well with his product development role at DVO.

Having been in the suspension game since 1998, it's safe to say that Ronnie knows a thing or two when it comes to springs, shims, and oil. Dilan has had a major role in the development of DVO's current range of forks and shocks, and he's also the man getting his hands dirty in the service department.
