Rock Shox Revelation RL 29" Dual Air 1.5" Taper

Something good got even better. We received so much positive feedback from trail riders out there that we wanted to give something back. Winner of numerous magazine tests, we upgraded Revelation with our new Motion Control DNA system. Now, the stiff and lightweight ultimate trail fork is even smoother and more responsive. Introducing Revelation 29": a proven lightweight platform designed for aggressive trail riding. Smooth responsiveness provided by Motion Control DNA damping systems perfectly pairs with Maxle Lite and 140mm travel.

Rock Shox Revelation RL 29" Dual Air 1.5" Taper Features:

  • Weight: 1806 g, *Weight based on 265mm tapered steerer, 20mm Maxle Lite
  • Travel: 120/130/140 - internally adjustable
  • Spring: Dual Air
  • Damping: Motion Control DNA RL - Crown mounted Lockout
  • Rebound Damping: Dual Flow
  • Axle: 20mm Maxle Lite
  • Steerer: Tapered Alloy

Rock Shox Revelation RL 29" Dual Air 1.5" Taper Technology:

  • 29" - Let’s face it. You know what you want from your suspension, which is why we believe in giving our riders the options they desire. You’ll find that several of our forks are available in 29-inch models for riders who have a penchant for bigger wheels.
  • Air Guides - We print Air Guides on all of our air-sprung forks. Maybe not a technological feat, but it will help you set up your suspension in seconds instead of minutes. And more time on your bike equals more chances to earn King of the Mountain on your favorite trail. Maybe they are a technological feat.
  • Dual Air - With independently adjustable positive and negative air spring chambers, Dual Air is race or trail ready, highly tunable, and one of the lightest air spring systems on the market.
  • Dual Flow - Suspension shouldn’t pack up in rock gardens or buck after big drops. That’s why Dual Flow incorporates independent damping circuits, allowing separate rebound speeds for big hits and small ones. A user-adjustable knob controls the beginning-stroke (small-hit) rebound, and a factory-set ending-stroke (big-hit) rebound creates the perfect suspension for whatever the trail (or park) throws your way. Now tuning your suspension for your unique needs is as easy as a clockwise or counterclockwise turn. In the RockShox world this is clicking toward the turtle or the “jackalope.”
  • Maxle Lite - Who obsesses over the weight of their wheel axles? It’s ridiculous, right? It’s just a rod of metal bolting the wheels to your bike. But then again, Maxle Lite is a nifty thru axle system that makes your bike both lighter and stiffer. And less weight makes it easier to get your bike to do what you want. Especially when you don’t need to bring tools to remove it, front or rear. And that extra stiffness gives you the precision to hit your lines no matter how burly. So maybe that obsession isn’t so ridiculous after all.
  • Power Bulge - When you need your forearms to be stronger for more control, you bulk them up in the gym. When you need more durability from your fork, bulk them up with our Power Bulge. Other companies just increase the stanchion size adding extra weight. Power Bulge simply reinforces the lower leg to allow for an oversized bushing, increasing stiffness and maximizing your ride. Plus, it’s called Power Bulge.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Trail master fork for your big 29er really pleased with these, track well non-flex and don't weigh much more than reba's. Come with spacer to run at 120mm although happy at 130 for my hardtail. Brilliant fork - recommended. 05 October 2013

Is it possible to buy this fork and then change the travel by swapping an internal spacer? I've heard conflicting things and i wanted a clear answer.

Thank you!

Answer: 
Due to the nature of the Tapered Steerer on this fork; it is not compatible with your frame.

The Rockhopper 2013 comes stock with a Quick Release front hub narrowing the options for modern forks.

will this fit my bike

Hi,

I have a carbon MTB and the spec of my frame has the following - Head tube : Tapered (Headset : 1-1/8" down:1-1/2")

The RockShox Revelation RL 29" Dual Air 1.5" Taper 2012 looks like a good match.
Will the 1.1/8" - 1.5" fit this bike?

Thanks

is it really with 20mm axle?

Is this fork really with 20mm axle? I thought, that it was made only with 15mm axle. If this information is true on your web, does exist some way how to use it, if I have front wheel for 15mm axle? for example some adapter? Thank you. Petr

Answers

Answer: 
These forks do run on a 20mm axle; as currently you have a 15mm hub, unless the hub runs on a 20mm subaxle; the only option would be to change the wheel.

The suggested options below would also be good alternatives.

Answers

Answer: 
In regards to the steerer which is 1 1/8" - 1.5" Tapered; this will fit to the frame with no problems.

Take into consideration that the 2012 Camber came stock supplied with a Quick Release Front wheel and this new fork uses a 20mm Thru-Axle so a new hub would likely be required.

This fork also has 130mm of travel (the stock fork has 120mm) which will push the Head Tube angle back and modify handling slightly.
