For years riders have had to sacrifice carrying the weight of a coil shock in order to get the performance and consistency they desired. The Cane Creek Double Barrel Coil [IL] is the first ever twin-tube inline shock that packs in all of the function of a piggyback coil shock in a lighter (*333 g difference) and sleeker package when equipped with the Cane Creek VALT® lightweight spring. DB Coil [IL] features Climb Switch technology, 4-way adjustability and unparalleled Double Barrel performance to dominate aggressive descents with superior small bump compliance, heat dissipation and linear spring action.
*Measured with a (216x63mm) DB Coil [IL] with VALT® spring (has to be purchased separately) as compared to a DB Coil CS with a standard spring.
All models with Open End Eye are not compatible with Specialized bikes (model year 2019)! In case of discrepancies please contact our service.
The shock is delivered without coil! Bushings are not in delivery and must be ordered separately. 2 bushings are required!
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.
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.
This Teflon bushings are self-lubricating and custom manufactured to reduce maintenance and cause lower friction.
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 DB Coil [IL] 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 DB Coil [IL] 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 DB Coil [IL], 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.
