The DBcoil IL BLACK Double Barrel steel coil rear shock by Cane Creek - high-end in noble black
With the DBcoil IL Double Barrel coil spring rear shock by Cane Creek you get the whole package of uncompromising technology in the BLACK Edition. The Climb Switch Uphill mode in the low-speed compression stage optimises pedal efficiency in climbing passages by means of rocker suppression.
Thanks to the unique Twin Tube technology, in which the oil circulates continuously through the damping valve, the Piggyback can be dispensed with. This saves up to 45% weight compared to similar Piggyback shocks. But you still get superior damping for aggressive descents with sensitive response even on the smallest bumps.
Depending on the design of your rear triangle, you can choose between linear or progressive Valt Lightweight coils.

The Climb Switch Uphill mode is the most innovative climbing feature 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.
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 end 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 reduces, for example, the sagging of the rear end in adjacent areas or when 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. Here it is 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.
