Cane Creek DBAir CS Rear Shock

The DBAir CS features the Cane Creek proprietary climbing mode on a DBAir shock that keeps suspension fully active while climbing. This results in better control and connection to the trail while climbing, less rider fatigue and increased power transfer. Unlike current climbing platforms, the all new Double Barrel CS provides internal climb-specific damping in BOTH compression AND rebound. And when you go downhill...it’s all Double Barrel.

Vital MTB – “4.5 star rating”

Features:

  • 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 tunability and eliminating the need for internal valving changes to achieve proper shock setup. The third video above explains this concept in more detail.

4-Way Independent Adjustment:

  • Low Speed Compression (LSC): 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 CS decouples LSC from HSC so the shock can address the aforementioned issues while still feeling plush and bottomless.
  • High Speed Compression (HSC): 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 CS 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 (LSR): 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 (HSR): An adjustment unique to the DBAir CS, 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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by 2 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by The ultimate rear shock!!!! Throw anything at this shock and it has a answer for it on the downhills you feel really in-control and the Climb switch helps you climb like a mountain goat 01 April 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Jedi of shocks Without a shadow of a doubt this is the best on the market. It's improved my riding ability. Easy to set up looks mint and performs outstandily. No rear wheel bob, it's so reactive it's awesome. Ok it's not the lightest on the market but would you sacrifice performed over a tad bit of weight. Buy it now you'll not regret it....... 23 March 2014

Answer: 
When replacing a rear shock you must use a shock which is the same size as the original. You can fit a shock with a longer stroke, but the eye to eye length must remain the same. You'll need to contact a Specialized dealer or measure your existing shock to identify the size you need. Mounting hardware will need to be purchased separately, yes.

Answer: 
This shock will fit in regards to overall length (215mm) however there is too much travel at 63mm stroke.

We are not a Specialized dealer however it may be possible to set this version up to be compatible.

Please contact the manufacturer for more advice.
