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.
