  • Hey, John!

    Both DVO and Ohlins make a great product that really complement our bikes very well. We are already offering Ohlins on our ONE.2 DH bike, and it seemed like a great match for the Lithium.

    Parts availability is another part of the equation. As you may know, there are a lot of delays in the industry currently as ripple effects of the initial COVID impact. In addition to great performance, we went to great lengths to spec parts that would not delay us in getting bikes to our customers ASAP in the spring!

  • I was wondering why Canfield dropped DVO and went with Ohlins on their latest offerings?
