The DVO Topaz offers 3 compression settings to quickly & easily allow the rider to adjust the compression damping for any trail condition.
1. Open Compression– reduces compression damping allowing the oil to easily flow through the circuit offering maximum sensitivity. Open position is also best for lighter riders or for dry dusty terrain where maximum traction is required.
2. Medium compression is for traversing. Sections of the trail where you need it to be active but still maintain a good pedaling platform.
3. Closed Compression– great for climbing to reduce undesirable suspension bob or for heavier/aggressive riders needing maximum support while descending. The heavy/closed setting is NOT a lock-out but does offer significant resistance to weight & pedal induced suspension movement.
