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.

RS Revelation RL Brake Dive

Suspension experts... I'm getting pretty heavy brake dive at times. My current solution has been running it at high pressures and the negative spring at 5-10psi higher. Fork is supple on the chatter and progressive, works fairly well but the compromise is that it's typically 3/4" shy of getting full ... Read More »
