DT Swiss forks are ace if you can find any within budget (2nd hand?). Prefer mine to the Revs I had before.

Never get Revelations for that budget

Rebas your best bet for around the £300 mark. I 've got a set on my RM and they are super smooth and very stiff even in QR guise.


they go quite regularly from about £250 IME... But as stated either of the two models (Reb and Rev) are brilliant.

The 20mm axle revs normally go for £300+ and the qr ones a bit cheaper.

I got mine for £260 though, 20mm 2010 teams, not new but minty.

Had to haggle though.

There are a pair of revelation rlt ti in QR for 350 on Buy it Now or best offer. Various other revs at that price and lower. Don't blindly settle for Rebas.

Item numbers on ebay.
Item #: 330720572346
Item #: 360437128517 and there are others ending today on auction.


Revelations are over 130mm though, aren't they 150 or is that just the newer versions? TBH if your buying a long travel fork intended for heavy use isn't a bolt through a better option?

How about going for a coil sprung bolt through Pike instead for that money.

Older Rev's like the 426 were 130mm, I had some on an Orange 5

Good forks, but a Reba is better for general XC/trail (lighter)

If you want a harder hitting fork for trail/AM the Rev's are a good choice if a little heavier than a Reba

Pikes only come with a 20mm bolt through IIRC, so the OP would have to have a new wheel, blowing the fork budget

two threads running at the same time on this, both worth a read:
