Description of Cane Creek Double Barrel Air CS Shock - Trunnion


Define your great!

DB Air CS - High-end DH/FR air shock with a very wide adjustment range and great responsiveness by teflon bushings from Norglide®. It was developed in cooperation with the Swedish company Öhlins, which has its roots in motocross sports since 1976. All parts of this shock are precision-machined for maximum performance and reliability for years. Through the use of the revolutionary Twin Tube Technology the Cane Creek DB Air allows a great independent adjustability of compression and rebound. The negative air spring is self-adjusting. The whole shock is handcrafted in Fletcher/USA.

Trunnion mount version


Note: The 2 required bushings are not included in delivery and must be ordered separately.

CS - The Climb Switch technology in detail

CS is a selectable climbing mode on Double Barrel shocks that allows the rider to retain the advantages of a fully suspended bike while climbing, without unwanted suspension motion. CS is not your conventional pedal-platform as it adjusts both LSC and LSR. By selectively tuning both compression and extension phases when climbing, the shock maintains better traction and control while enhancing pedaling efficiency through the shock's entire travel.

Detailed: The CS feature modifies the Double Barrel damper to include two selectable damping circuits. By changing the position of a shock-mounted lever, the rider chooses which damping circuit is active. Damping circuit 1 has the same adjust ability and performance as traditional Double Barrel shocks and is externally tuned via LSC, LSR, HSC, HSR. Damping circuit 2 is tuned specifically for climbing to address low frequency dynamics for increased climbing efficiency while maintaining traction and control.

To best illustrate the advantage of CS, Cane Creek created the animation below using real data from dyno plots of a shock with CS off and then with CS on.


Further technologies of the Cane Creek DB Air CS rear shock


Twin Tube technology

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 tune-ability and eliminating the need for internal valving changes to achieve proper shock setup. The video explains this concept in more detail.


Tunable Air Volume

As an additional tuning tool, the spring rate of the DB Air shock can be adjusted through the use of air volume reduction spacers (included). For bikes that have a more progressive leverage ratio, Cane Creek offers new XV (Extra Volume) air cans. Air volume is not the same as air pressure adjustment. Air pressure should be used to achieve the correct sag value (see Tuning Field Guide). If the bike bottoms out harshly, or too frequently, reducing the air volume (using spacers) can provide a more progressive air spring. A more progressive spring will prevent harsh bottom-outs, since the spring will be "stiffer" as the bike gets closer to full travel. Having more air volume (using an XV air can), is recommended for a sub-class of bikes that have a significantly progressive leverage ratio. More air volume will provide a more linear (less progressive) air spring. A less progressive air spring will allow a rider to ride with more High Speed Compression while still allowing full travel of the bike.

Norglide® bushings

These teflon bushings are self-lubricating and custom manufactured to reduce maintenance and cause lower friction.

Four-way independent adjustability:


  • Low Speed Compression is used to manage traction and chassis stabilization. LSC adjustment eliminates pedal induced "bob", influences small bump sensitivity, reduces brake dive and determines how the bike will react to weight changes. The DBAIR decouples LSC from HSC so the shock can address the aforementioned issues while still feeling plush and bottomless.

  • High Speed Compression is critical to absorbing energy from high impact forces, such as square edge hits and harsh landings. It also aids in bottom-out resistance. The DBAIR manages HSC through an adjustable poppet valve and full oil circuit flow path. The wide adjustment range allows for custom, rider-specific tuning.

  • Low Speed Rebound works in concert with LSC to stabilize the chassis and manage traction. It is analogous to the single rebound adjuster on most other rear shocks. Rider-tuned LSR adjustment (combined with LSC) ensures maximum traction during technical climbs, high-speed chatter, off-camber corners and braking in stutter bumps.

  • High Speed Rebound is an adjustment unique to the Double Barrel and the DBAIR, HSR control enables a bike to recover quickly from deep in suspension travel while allowing for controlled take-offs from jump faces. Independent control of HSR and LSR, eliminates bucking (a high shaft speed problem) while preventing the shock from packing up (a low shaft speed problem) by inducing quick recovery.
