Conquer the climb
Riders who prefer the linear spring feel and exceptional low speed sensitivity of a coil shock will now have access to a climbing platform. DBcoil CS is the world’s first enduro-specific coil shock for 150-170mm travel bikes with a Climb Switch. (CS). The proprietary CS (patent-pending) feature for Double Barrel shocks adjusts low-speed damping characteristics on-the-fly keeping the suspension fully active while you climb results in better connection to the trail and increased efficiency without annoying pedal-bob. When you’re ready to descend, it’s all Double Barrel.
All shocks are built to order by hand in North Carolina, USA. Typical lead time is 3-6 business days. If you have any questions about the status of your shock, feel free to contact the Cane Creek customer service team.
For any help with hardware installation or setting sag on your new Double Barrel shock, please check out the videos on this page.
What are trunnion Mounts?
Not every frame can accommodate a longer shock, especially on smaller sizes that need super low standovers. Trunnion shortens the required eye-to-eye length 25mm by running the upper mounting hardware through the shock body, but still provides shock designers some added benefits inside.
Double barrel Twin Tube Technology
- Weight: ~454 grams (weight varies by size)
- Damping: Twin Tube independent compression and rebound in two high-speed and four low-speed damping circuits
- Adjustments: 4-way independent adjustment: High speed compression / Low speed compression / High speed rebound / Low speed rebound ; Spring preload Climb Switch On/off
- Shaft Material: Induction-hardened 4130 steel
- Shaft Diameter: 8mm or 9.5mm
- Finish: Anodized and laser-etched
- Mounting Interface: Norglide bushing 1/2" Universal Axle
Exclusive Twin Tube Technology circulates oil continuously through the damping valving to achieve highly controllable, independent damping for both compression and rebound strokes. This unique design moves oil through externally adjustable valving instead of the main piston, allowing for superior tunability and eliminating the need for internal valving changes to achieve proper shock setup.
Climbing switch technology
CS is the most innovative climbing feature available. This proprietary climbing feature (patent-pending) for Double Barrel shocks alters the entire low frequency dynamic response of the shock to specifically address the demands of ascending on a bicycle.
