I have a 2011 Revelation RL Dual Air with the basic (not DNA) MoCo damper that has a tooled floodgate. I know the obvious difference is the RLT has the ability to adjust the floodgate without tools but what's this DNA business? I've read the RS site and it really doesn't explain much...

Thanks,
Frankie

I'm thinking I have the dual flow already so that's why I'm wanting to upgrade the MoCo. I pulled the MoCo out when I first got the fork and the rebound damper head is red so that leads me to believe its dual flow. I don't think there were any red dampers that were the orifice type. I just bought a coil for it (150/120mm Sektor Dual Position Coil) so I'm going to sell the dual air spring and buy a RLT DNA with the money. Hopefully I get a good amount for it.

Does anyone have any hard data on the differences between these dampers?

I wouldn't bother going from RL to RLT dampers. The adjustable threshold in the RLT is an advantage, but because of the design of the damper it interacts with both the HSC and LSC. Get a RCT3 damper. It gives you a proper shimmed compression circuit (that can be easily re-shimmed if necessary) with adjustable LSC plus full open and two threshold settings.

I've tossed around the idea of the RCT3. My roommate has one so maybe I'll steal his damper one day when he's not looking and try it out lol I do think it looks more proper, like what I'd expect to see when I think of a "damper" if that makes sense. The other MoCo units look very simple and cheap but the RCT3 looks like there was more R&D put into it.

Do you know if the OEM Pike RC is essentially the same as the RCT3 damper?
