It's now out and available for shipment.  Considering it as my next fork after being quite impressed by the Mattoc 29.

It's 37mm stanchion, 2000g claimed weight (for 27.5) and 180mm travel in both 27.5 & 29" flavours

Would be sick to get a 37mm offset 29er. Wonder how they do the offsets?

I know that. 

37 or 44mm offset on 275 size. 

Wonder if they do CSU offset like a da FAUX SHOX?

Was just looking at those online. Did you buy them?

I will be updating my 29er enduro fork in the spring, torn on what to buy.

DVO diamond

Fox 36

Maybe this Manitou.

Not yet, unfortunately.  Just picked it up last Thursday evening.

Out of a weird turn of events I ended up with three choice 29er forks at once. A factory fox 36 (170mm), an Ohlins 36 Coil (160mm) and the Mezzer (at 180mm) with only two bikes to run them on.

The Ohlins is getting due for a service but I want to get one more bike park day in before taking it to James, which is planned at the end of September. I'll be slapping the Mezzer on the Enduro while the Ohlins is in the shop.

I wasn't a huge fan of the Auron. See my reviews in the Sticky above. I ended up getting rid of it after the testing/review. From what I understand, the Durolox may be a different story.

I can't say enough good things about the DVO Diamond - stiff and very tuneable for the clydesdale in each of us.
