Field test results:
The fork mounted easily, even with
the addition of a bracket to the post mount to accommodate
a 7-inch brake rotor.
We are not going to tell you how many clicks to run on
your rebound or Motion Control DNA clickers because the
options are almost endless. We can say that all the changes
to external adjustments can be felt, even by riders who may
not be certified suspension technicians.
The Revelation delivers two-stage performance. It soaks
up the small stuff almost like it is set too soft, but snaps to
attention when you hit hard; it feels like you are getting
every bit of wheel travel. This is what we want out of a trailbike fork.
The Maxle Lite axle may be light, but it certainly isn’t
wimpy. It is easy to use and offers enough rigidity for any
serious trail rider. Riders with more aggressive tendencies
will be better served with the RockShox Pike’s larger stanchion tubes, but for normal trail-riding needs, there is no
reason to carry the extra weight when the Revelation does
its job so well.
What we enjoyed most about the Revelation World Cup
fork is that after months of riding it, we still found ourselves
experimenting and fiddling with the external adjustments. It is not that we were unhappy; it is just such a versatile fork
that it begs you to play with it.
