Another feather in the cap for BOS is the brilliant Deville fork, which for 2013 is offered in 140, 160 and 170mm travel options. These forks do the job that so many other air-sprung forks claim to – they provide smooth, supple and stiction free travel – and they do it just as well as any coil fork on the market.
It’s the control though that really sets these forks apart from the rest, they only ever use the minimal amount of travel necessary to get the job done, there’s never any diving or wallowing. A true enduro racers fork if ever there was one. The 20mm axle has a simple, if sometimes prone to working loose, clamp system that’s light, stiff and easy to use.
Combine all this with adjustable high and low speed compression and rebound damping and you have the most rounded fork of its kind. Reasonably lightweight, efficient and confidence inspiring, we’d recommend them any day.
