DVO Suspension – Emerald DH Fork Testing

DVO’s long awaited Emerald DH forks will supposedly soon be landing in the UK, but while we are waiting for them to eventually arrive we can all sit back and wince at this lab test video that DVO have just released…

How the hell did those forks not snap? We’d love to see the point at which they do eventually fail, and it would have been great to know the forces involved in these tests. I mean for all we know the forces could have been tiny, meaning the forks have stiffness that’s comparable to that of a banana. Of course we’re sure that’s not the case, but it’s not often you get to see a set of forks flex as much as this, and so as I said it would have been better if we were given some idea of the loads that resulted in such extreme deflections.
