DT Swiss New Mountain Bike Forks
DT Swiss launches new models for their suspension fork products. Having acquired Pace in 2006, this is a first for DT Swiss to engineer and design their very own suspension forks. With the use of the new technology, better models were manufactured for their product line.
The technology DT Swiss developed involved a change in the damping system. They applied the Twin Shot damping system to their 100mm travel XRC and XC forks. The goal here is to maximize control and how well it can be adjusted.
For the 32mm forks, DT Swiss placed a magnesium Torsion Box arch lower leg assembly. It provides a stiff yet light lower similar to the carbon made ones. The 130mm and 150mm travel EXM forks have the Launch Control II as its damping system.
Across all new fork models except for the XC, DT Swiss utilizes the Auto Balancing Spring (ABS) system. The ABS functions to set pressures in the positive and negative air chambers, automatically. This is done through one valve in the fork.
Price range is between £600-£1000.
