Strengths:    pretty light for a 150fork, pretty stiff w/ th 20mm maxle, took a lickin' n' kept on kickin', worked great @ N* and all the local DHish trais

Weaknesses:    Maybe a bit stiff to some on the initial part of the travel?

Bottom Line:   
The Revelation 150 is a great fork for a light-ish AM build. It worked great with my 5" Niota. Packed the fork into the ground and my headtube separated from the downtube at the welds, the fork however showed no signs of damage.

Strengths:    Plush, easy to set up and dial in. Stiff even with QR drop outs.

Weaknesses:    PSI settings on left fork for initial sag are off.

Bottom Line:   
Either 130-150 this fork is great even with quick release drop outs. Great for for trail to all-mountain riding. When setting up the (-) psi it is better to run 5 to 10 psi above the (+) chamber. Just make sure you do the (+) first.

2012 Revelation RL Solo Air - Convert to Dual Position?

One of the new Revelation Solo Air forks came on my 2012 Blur LT. I'm wondering if it's possible to convert it to a Dual Position so I can take advantage of a 120mm climbing/racing setting. Has anyone done this, or know if it's even possible? :thumbsup:Read More »
