DVO test the Emerald downhill fork: video

New fork undergoes brutal structural tests

DVO Suspension has released video footage of the forthcoming Emerald downhill fork being put through its paces in a series of chassis strength tests.

The video shows the upside-down, dual-crown Emerald being twisted and flexed in a series of punishing tests. It left us both impressed and scared.

Presumably some of these tests went on to completely destroy the forks, although you'll see none of that destruction in this clip. We aren't quite sure if we are relieved or disappointed about that…

One thing is for sure though – DVO customers should be able to rest assured that even their best efforts shouldn't bust the new Emerald.
