Dvo Topaz Air Rear Shock

DVO Topaz Air Rear Shock

DVO's Topaz Air Rear Shock has arrived. The company spent two years of development time to craft an air shock that they believe can stand up to the abuse from the best riders in the world. Now they say the DVO topaz can deliver racer performance with everyday ride practicality. How? The air volume is easily tunable via air volume spacers that can be removed or installed in a matter of minutes. Small bump compliance and damping is achieved from a bladder and loader style compression unit that trickles down from the Jade Coil DH shock. Cooling fins on the reservoir allow heat to effectively dissipate from the shock, keeping temperatures low and damping consistent. The T3 Compression adjust gives you three compression settings for pedaling, traversing, and descending.

DVO Topaz Air Rear Shock Specifications:

  • Damper unit: Compression Loader System w/ Bladder
  • Adjustability: Rebound, Quick Range Compression (Open, Medium & Firm) & Air Volume Bushing: 15mm IGUS Bushings, Mounting Hardware w/ 6mm, 8mm or 10mm Options
  • Spring: Air spring
  • Weight: 330 grams

Better than Fox? So far yes...
I purchased an early example of the Topaz rear shock from a suspension shop, Guru suspension in Tucson AZ. The owner, Dane had acquired a few of these shocks from a trade show and was interested in becoming a dealer/ repair center. " these shocks are marketed to people who want to work on their own stuff. You can tune it exactly to your ride with no tools and a little time.' was the sales pitch.

I had been running a fox dhx 5 air shock that was in need of overhaul, and decided to give the DVO a try. Mounted it up to my 6 inch travel giant reign, and installed three positive air spacers,

I took it out for its trial run on the most technical trail in southern AZ, La Milagrosa. The lockout lever came into use during the start of the ride which is mostly steep barely ridable hike a bike. It isnt a ultra firm lockout, but is a slow speed compression increase. It helped keep the front wheel planted and noticeably helped during out of saddle grunts.

Where this shock really performed was in the wide open setting. Milagrosa features a long high speed section with water bars, and rough terrain. Eight inch travel bikes shine here because of the rapid back to back impacts and the higher wheel speed. My rear wheel disappeared under the Reign in a way that is so different to the Fox. THis shock has excellent linearity, suppleness, that makes your bike feel really stable. The FOx was really difficult to set up in comparison. Small bump compliance always came at the cost of mid travel support. Not so with the Topaz. It just feels stable.

I have about four months of riding on this thing with no issues mechanically

Grea t rear shock
I ride an Intense Carbine and I replaced a rock shox, and couldn't be happier. Easy to tune and performance was as good if not better than the previous shock. Was looking at the rock shox RC3 plus, however my brother had issues with that shock squeaking after only 8 miles. In my opinion go for the DVO

Incredible shock
I've been a huge fan of my DVO Diamond fork and was excited to pick one of these up. Classic DVO - no stiction, incredible small bump compliance, easy to tune and looks great too.

DVO topaz, easily set up works great
I put the shock on my 2015 specialized enduro 29er and have been very happy with it. Mostly done XC style riding on it so far but a couple large downhills on my loops with drops and jumps to a couple feet and it works awesome. I weigh 170 with gear and have 190 PSI in main shock and 170 in piggyback. Seems to blow thru travel easily but never a harsh bottom out. I am going to start fiddling with volume reducers soon and will start with one in the positive and one in the negative chambers, but don't want it to progressive. Pedals well. I have kept in trail mode most of the time in the area I have riding so far but open close positions do seem to make a noticeable difference when pedaling. Only 4 rides so far but happy with it

Excellent Shock, Incredible Value
Easy to tune, incredible performance. Very happy with this purchase.

DVO Customer Support is also incredible - they respond very quickly and were able to help me with tuning tips for my particular bike.

I have had this for just over a week now, and I feel like I truly got it dialed today. This shock feels worlds better than the stock Monarch for me. I weigh 225 lbs, and the Monarch felt harsh but I still bottomed it effortlessly. Slapping the Topaz on my Hightower has made it feel even more capable. I have now achieved a supple initial stroke with excellent mid stroke support and nice ramp up.
I only wish I had done it sooner!

Excellent shock at a great price
The Topaz offers nearly unlimited adjustments between air pressure, bladder presser, spacers and everything in between. The price is right on par with other tops brands and looks amazing! The best quality of the DVO Topaz though is their customer service. It may take them a few hours or a few days to get back to you, but when they do, they are all in. They call you, explain themselves clearly and work with you to find the best solution for your situation. If I didn't get a good deal on a 1 year old fork from a friend, I would have purchased the DVO fork as well.

Upgraded to this shock from a fox float on a Santa Cruz Tallboy LTC. This thing is so easy to customize, I love it. In my opinion this is the perfect trail shock. It's lightweight, it eats up downhills and rock gardens with ease, feels pillowy on drops, and climbs just as well if not better than my old inline shock especially on the rocky steep ups. They have great customer service as well. The recommended tune from the guys at DVO was spot on.

Does this shock nee to be tuned for a specific bike? If so whats the best way of getting the base tune?
Nigel H on Jul 29, 2017
BEST ANSWER: The shock doesn't require a tune specific to the bike, only the rider. Recommended setup can be found in the paperwork that comes with it and online. Setup is very easy and this shock is very tunable. That said, you will need to make sure this shock comes in a length that fits your bike frame.
Which shock do I need for my Santa Cruz Hightower cc?
Steve on Feb 25, 2017
BEST ANSWER: I checked the website and it says 200MM. I'm not exactly certain but I think you need the 200mm X 50mm. DVO makes a great shock. Be sure to give DVO a call and ask them about tuning suggestions.
what size would I need for my devinci troy?
jazza on Apr 25, 2017
BEST ANSWER: 200 x 50 check cane creeks website they have a size chart.
Do I need 6mm mounting kit?
Steve on Feb 25, 2017
BEST ANSWER: That would depend on the frame that you are using. The shock does not include the mounting hardware needed since all frames are different, you will need to measure your frame and purchase that hardware separate. The Fox Shox hardware is compatible with DVO shocks.
will this fit the GT force frame?
