It doesn’t take a psychiatrist to see the Revelation has a serious split-personality disorder. Thanks to an all-new Dual Position Air spring system with 30mm of sag-to-sag, on-the-fly travel adjustment, one minute the Revelation is an ultra-lightweight, lethal trail fork, the next it’s a long-travel cross country fork. This identity crisis is perfect for riders who can’t decide whether they want to be cranking up a lung-burning ascent, or blasting down a steep, technical descent. Either way, Rock Shox lightest trail fork (or heavy-duty cross country fork) fits the bill.

I recently built a Santa Cruz 650B using the Rock Shox Revelation 27.5 fork and I'm extremely happy with it's performance. The new coating applied to the stanchions is as smooth as any other fork I've ever ridden and this fork was very easy to set up. I was amazed that I could leave it in the All Mountain setting and still climb very effectively. It's not a cheap fork but I thought it's performance level, at well under 4 pounds, makes it worth the bucks.
