New Rockshox Dual Crown Domain Fork: The Freeride Park Tamer

rockshox-domain-dual-crown-2011

Rockshox has just unveiled the new Domain Dual Crown suspension fork aimed at the freeride, park and jump crowd.  It features the same Domain characteristics built on a 200mm dual crown chassis.

The single crown Domain forks are offered in 115-160mm U-Turn and 160mm and 180mm coil spring versions, so the Dual Crown isn’t bumping up travel too much, but should offer big improvements in stiffness at the upper end of travel.  For the record, 200mm = 7.87″, putting the Domain DC’s travel on par with Rockshox’s top-of-the-line Boxxer DH forks.

Indeed, the Domain DC carries over all the core features of Domain, hardened steel upper tubes and easily adjustable compression and rebound damping, and actually borrows parts of the BoXXer’s World Cup winning chassis.  That means the uppers are 35mm, but you’re getting tapered steel tubes rather than the Boxxer’s anodized 7000 Series Straight Wall Aluminum.  Privateers, here’s your new DH fork!
