DT SWISS fork 27.5 "OPM ODL 100 Race QR15 tapered black ODL stands for Open-Drive Lock and describes the 3-stage damping adjustment of the fork. In open mode, the fork can play her perfectly smooth throttle response and operates over the full travel. So it has full control in the blocked area and all demanding situations. In Drive mode, the fork is more tightly tuned for maximum efficiency with aggressive driving on flat, flowing trails or on a steep gradient. A bounce the fork is also reduced when climbing to a minimum in order to optimally implement the force of the driver. The lockout mode blocks the damper fully to ensure on asphalt stretches or for Spints the maximum pedaling efficiency. However, unexpected hits of the fork can be absorbed through an integrated blow-off function.
The choice of multiple XC World Champion Nino Schurter for the toughest World Cup courses! The OPM ODL forks are equipped with a light and super stiff magnesium casting and 32 mm stanchions. The Race versions fork crown and steerer Carbon are made and so push the weight down significantly. Thanks to their high rigidity forks for disc brakes up to 210 millimeters in diameter are released. The operation of the 3-stage ODL high-damper unit is conveniently by a supplied remote lever and the handlebar. All DT Swiss fork models are equipped with a tapered steerer and designed for the use of 15 millimeter thru-axle.
One Piece Mag Technology
With this technology, the fork casting was developed from scratch. In magnesium injection molding made it is an absolute high-tech part. A load-optimized construction ensures an optimal compromise between low weight and maximum rigidity. So all spaces from the truss in the crown to the reinforcements on the jacks designed and dimensioned according to the forces occurring.
NCS suspension system
The negative Coil Spring Suspension System is an air suspension system for high performance. The steel negative spring ensures that regardless of the rider's weight is an ideal spring characteristic is achieved.
