RockShox Revelation World Cup Dual Air 150mm Fork 2012
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 lung-burning ascents, or blasting down banger descents. Because either way, our lightest trail fork (or heavy-duty cross country fork) fits the bill.
These technologies are developed through our unique BlackBox Racing program. Through interaction between their BlackBox athletes (made up of the world's best racers and most progressive riders) and the BlackBox development team at SRAM, they create products that allow their riders to achieve greater levels of performance. Thier BlackBox athletes subject these products to rigorous testing to ensure they can consistently perform at the highest levels of our sport.
Suspension shouldn't pack up in rock gardens or buck after big drops. That's why Dual Flow incorporates independent damping circuits, allowing separate rebound speeds for big hits and small ones. A user-adjustable knob controls the beginning-stroke (small-hit) rebound, and a factory-set ending-stroke (big-hit) rebound creates the perfect suspension for whatever the trail (or park) throws your way. Now tuning your suspension for your unique needs is as easy as a clockwise or counterclockwise turn. In the RockShox world this is clicking toward the turtle or the "jackalope." Featured in: Totem, Lyrik, SID, Reba, Revelation, Monarch.
With their easy-to-understand guides for tuning air spring suspension printed right on the fork, setting up suspension to match a rider and enhance his or her riding style takes a matter of seconds.
With independently adjustable positive and negative air spring chambers, Dual Air is race or trail ready, highly tunable, and one of the lightest air spring systems on the market.
