- RS Revelation Dual positions? anybody used them much?
Hi, I’m Looking into treating my fuel EX to some dual position revelations to run 120 most of the time then 150 for big grins. How well do they work in the low position? might have to rethink if they’re not that great when wound in and only good for climbing in that position.Posted 6 years agoHighland28Member
i have been running XX dual position forks since last Aug now on my Ibis Mojo. The forks are amazing, originally hadn’t planned on getting the dual positions but got them in the end. I find myself using the lower position more than I thought I would, when the going gets steep the front end can wander a little. Dropping them to 120 makes a huge difference, I used the bike for Strathpuffer this year and for the first couple of laps I wound the forks back out for the techy downhill sections however as the race progressed I left them in the lower position for ease, not having to faff around, not that it is too difficult to do on the move. They coped really well for everything, almost to the point where they were jus as good as when extended.Posted 6 years agoSimonRSubscriber
Got a pair on my hardtail and love them although I tend to use them mostly at 150 then drop them to 120 for road bits (great for the commute) and long climbs.Posted 6 years ago
However, I’ve gone into downhills forgetting to extend them after a long climb and they’ve done pretty well – plenty of support but still nice and supple. The bike does feel different but I put that more down to the change in geometry of the bike.
Worth checking the user manual (on the SRAM website) – I vaguely remember seeing some warning about using them in reduced travel mode but that might be my memory playing tricks.
I like mine but from what I remember the 120mm mode is for uphill and pootling only. It isn’t like the old travel adjust and isn’t designed for big hits as I don’t think the spring rate changes so will bottom out lots and generally not do the fork any good. I may be wrong but it certainly feels like that the few times I’ve forgotten to extend them for a decent at the top of a climb.Posted 6 years ago
