Everything in the world progresses, including Cross Country mountain biking. XC tracks are becoming harder, with steeper uphills and more technical descents. Man-made obstacles such as berms, drops, logs and waves demand everything from riders and their equipment. That is why DT Swiss developed the 232 ONE platform components: Engineered to push the boundaries of Cross Country even further. Defining the benchmark in performance to weight.
The Cross Country optimized LINE AIR spring curve of the DT Swiss R 232 ONE rear shock allows you to float over root carpets and offers enough end progression to forget the chicken lines and take tall drops on the XC courses. The three-position adjustment of the IN CONTROL damping offers the perfect compression level for every situation – LOCK for sprints on even sections, DRIVE for technical climbs and OPEN mode to allow you to keep your brakes open on the downhills.
The R 232 ONE uses a dual-air chamber system which is autobalanced by a bypass. When the shock is fully extended, the pressure in the negative air chamber is higher than in the positive air chamber. This reduces the breakaway force, offering perfect traction and sensitivity. When the shock compresses, the piston moves over the bypass of the air chamber. When the piston is located on the bypass, the bypass ensures pressure equalization of the positive and negative air chamber. When the shock is compressed further, only the air inside the positive air chamber is compressed and the negative chamber is depressurized.
INCONTROL adjusts the oil flow by opening and closing the HSC and LSC channels and therefore the compression tune. This allows you to adapt your setup to every riding situation. Its three stages, on-the-fly damping adjustment offers the perfect compression tune - OPEN for descents, DRIVE for technical uphills, and LOCK for sprints on even sections.
