Production Privee has given us a refreshing reminder in the last couple of years of just how rad hardtails can be. Not any old hardtail though, a triple butted 4130 Japanese chromoly steel hardtail with geometry close to that of a downhill bike, meaning when pointed downhill this is possibly one of the fastest 150-160mm hardtails on the planet! We can vouch for that too with our Team rider Ewan taking a clean sweep of the QECP Collective Summer Enduro in 2015 in the hardtail category by a fair margin on his Production Privee Shan.
The guys at Production Privee are bringing you a new colour way this December, the ‘Diamond Reverse’ due to land mid December with us the No.1 UK Dealer of Production Privee. The Production Privee Shan 27 Diamond Reverse is funnily enough a reverse of the Super popular Diamond Green they did back in January which went down a storm. These frames are painted in the same factory as the popular DVO Diamond fork so colour matching is on point. For the first time we are offering this Shan 27 Diamond reverse frame with DVO Diamond 140-160mm trail fork in Diamond green to match. Pricing for this great combo will be £1099 saving you over £200 on the after market retail price of the fork while also including the headset and axle within the price which is a no brainer!
A little more detail into the DVO Diamond 140-160mm trail fork as they are still fairly new to the game but easily proving they are one of the best trail forks going up against the Rockshox Pike & Fox 36. The latest gem from DVO packs all the performance of a DH fork into a 140-160mm trail fork. With 35mm stanchions, an industry first compression bladder cartridge, dynamic tunability and their off the top (OTT) adjustable negative spring make this the ultimate trail and enduro race fork.
Quick Range Low Speed Compression
With a quick turn of the knob, the Low Speed circuit is restricted providing an improved platform for climbing.
High Speed Compression Adjust
Loader style compression provides easy access to the piston and shims for serious tuning
OTT – Off the Top
This exclusive and proven DVO design trickles down from the Emerald to deliver precise air sprung turning with the simple turn of a knob. Let’s you tune sag and ride high as well and mid to end stroke for improved traction and comfort.
Closed Cartridge Bladder System
Just like the bladder system found in the Jade rear shock the Diamond features a bladder system whereby the bladder is compressed rather than expanded offering incredible small bump sensitivity.

VitalMTB.com Review – “Ultimately the fork helped create a bike that could be ridden every bit as hard as a downhill bike”
