The uphill battle is over: the Double Barrel Air CS Shock from Cane Creek


CS (Climb Switch) is a unique climbing mode developed by Cane Creek, which leaves the suspension of the shock fully active while riding uphill (low speed mode). The result is significantly improved bike control and maximum traction, coupled with reduced stress on the rider and improved power transmission. In contrast to conventional (platform) shocks, the Double Barrel CS has climbing-specific damping for compression and rebound.
But wait--how does Climb Switch work?
When Climb Switch (CS) is activated, the low speed range of the Double Barrel Air shock is switched into climbing mode through an internal adjustment. This effectively suppresses unwanted pumping movements, while at the same time fully activating the suspension to provide the rider with reserves as-needed. Before embarking on a descent, simply turn the lever and reap all the advantages of the double barrel shock.

Technology:


CS Technology:
CS is the most innovative climbing tech on the market. The proprietary climbing function (patent pending) for the double barrel rear shock changes the entire low frequency dynamics of the damper, which is especially needed for the requirements of uphill riding.

4-Way Adjustment:
Two hexagonal bolts, placed one inside the other, allow the outer one to be used for high-speed compression and rebound, and the inner one for low-speed compression and rebound. For adjustment Cane Creek provides a small tool that fits in any bag or backpack. In addition, no knobs were used to keep the dimensions of the somewhat voluminous rear shock small. The adjustment range of the Double Barrel Air is extremely wide and covers a very wide range of rear triangle characteristics without having to resort to corresponding tunes. The " coil hardness" can of course be adjusted by air via a rear shock pump.

Low Speed Compression (LSC):
The low-speed compression stage reacts to slow shaft speeds. This ensures less bouncing when pedalling, and also reduces sagging of the rear triangle in adjacent areas or while jumping. The Double Barrel Air achieves exactly these characteristics by separating the high and low speed compression stages, thus preventing a reduction in travel.

High Speed Compression (HSC):
Hard hits on root passages, stones or hard landings are the job of the high-speed compression stage. The higher the high-speed pressure level is set, the greater the bottom-out protection.

Low Speed Rebound (LSR):
This setting corresponds to the simple rebound adjustment, which is also available from other brands. In this case, it's difficult to find a compromise between " fast enough for roots" and " slow enough for jumps and hard landings" .

High Speed Rebound (HSR):
The additionally adjustable high-speed rebound allows a slower rebound speed for hit that would compress the rear shock too fast and too far.

TOP Dämper, meines Erachtens gleich bzw. besser als die Platzhirsche. Habe den Dämpfer im 601ser und aktuell im 2016 NOMAD....

Sehr guter Dämpfer mit viel Einstellmöglichkeit. Kann ich nur empfehlen. Eingebaut in einem YT Tues2.0 von 2012

Perfekter Dämpfer, der sich den individuellen Bedürfnissen anpassen lässt!

Ich habe bisher Dämpfer von FOX verwendet, an meinem letzten Bike, einem Trek Fuel EX9, einen mit DRCV-Technik. Leider habe ich aber trotz Probieren von diversen Einstellungen nicht das Ergebnis erziehen können, das ich haben wollte: Entweder war die LowSpeed Zugstufe zu schwach, dass das Wippen beim Treten nicht unterdrückt wurde, oder der Druck im Dämpfer zu hoch, so dass der Federweg nicht ausgenutzt werden konnte (trotz DRCV...!).

Beim dem Cane Creek DBair CS kann ich nun das Verhalten vollständig an mein Bike und meine Strecken anpassen, und zwar getrennt für sanfte Huckel und schnelle Schläge beim Überfahren von Wurzelteppichen. Und das dann auch noch unter Ausnutzung des gesamten Federweges in ruppigen Passagen, während beim Pedalieren auf gerader Strecke das Wippen effektiv unterdrückt wird.

Zwar erfordert der Dämpfer ein wenig Einarbeitungszeit, aber in der Preisklasse ist er wohl ohnehin eher für Fahrer interessant, die wissen, was sie tun :-)

Das Einzige, was man meiner Meinung noch verbessern könnte, ist die Anbringung der Verstellschrauben, für die man leider einen Inbus benötigt. Ich weiß allerdings auch nicht, ob man das überhaupt mit per Hand verstellbaren Schrauben lösen könnte, da man doch etwas (!) Kraft zum Einstellen der Stufen benötigt.

Im Nachhinein schade um die Zeit, die ich mit dem FOX DRCV verschwendet habe. Der Cane Creek DBair CS hingegen ist, zumindest bei Bikes im Bereich von 160-180 mm Travel am Heck, DER Dämpfer schlechthin, zumal der Climb Switch auch längerhubige Bikes beim bergauf-Radeln am Heck ruhig stellt.

Ich werde bis auf Weiteres keine anderen Dämpfer mehr verwenden!
