Stuff Preview: RockShox Revelation Race Dual Air

In an effort to give you some insight into the products we plan to send through our rigorous testing process here at Dirt Rag, we’ve come up with the Stuff Preview series. Each Friday, we’ll present one product that is currently in the hands of one of our testing staff. We’ll post a photo of the product, and give you the basic skinny as put forth by the product manufacturer. These products will appear in a future issue of Dirt Rag, and you’ll have to subscribe or buy the issue to get the full review.

This week we have the RockShox Revelation Race Dual Air fork.

Manufacturer’s Description
This year’s Revelation brings an all new chassis to the table with proven lightweight Dual Air or Air U-Turn and travel increased to a formidable 150mm. The smooth responsiveness provided by the Motion Control or BlackBox Motion Control damping is paired with the confidence that comes from ultra stiff 32mm aluminum uppers and a Maxle Lite option. Even when the trail is hell, this fork is pure heaven.

Dual Air
With independently adjustable positive and negative air spring chambers, the Dual Air is race or trail ready, highly tunable and one of the lightest air spring systems on the market.

Motion Controlâ„¢
With Motion Control, forks chew up climbs with incredible efficiency while the patented lockout blow-off valve and floodgate control immediately absorb any bumps along the way. An elegant design in a simple and lightweight package.
