Breaking into the trail fork market, especially at this sort of price, is a tough ask. But DVO has come out swinging with its first single-crown fork.
The Diamond’s 35mm stanchions help produce a stiff, accurate steering chassis. It’s more than happy being properly pummelled into the rough stuff at speed.
Alongside the easy-to-adjust air spring there’s DVO’s OTT (Off The Top) adjuster. This adjusts the negative spring, altering how the initial part of the stroke feels.
The Diamond is also available in green
Although it’s not quite as slick as the Fox 36 in the really choppy stuff, the Diamond can hold its own when things get ugly. At 2.16kg (uncut steerer), it’s heavier than its direct competition though.
