Cane Creek DBinline Rear Shock

Cane Creek’s Double Barrel rear shocks have been a hit since day one, inspiring confidence with next-level adjustability and control. Originating as a piggybacked coil shock, later iterations included a piggybacked air-sprung model and then a piggybacked air-sprung model with a Climb Switch. Cane Creek has upped the ante once again by bringing the same damping characteristics of the DB shocks to the inline shock category, making it compatible with more frames than a traditional piggybacked rear shock.

Traditionally, piggybacked rear shocks are used for more aggressive riding styles. The piggyback reservoir allows for higher oil volumes, which improves the performance of the shock and significantly reduces shock fade. During use, the oil in a rear shock will begin to heat up which causes the oil to become much thinner. This lowers the damping rates, causing the bike to bounce around more as well as increasing the chance of bottoming out. By increasing the oil volume, it takes longer for the oil to heat up, which results in a more consistent and reliable damping system. Although the DBinline does not feature a piggyback reservoir, thanks to the Twin-Tube design it does use much more oil, about 37-48% more, than other inline rear shocks. This increase in oil volume directly improves the performance of the shock, allowing you to go bigger than before without the worry of bottoming out.

As with other Cane Creek shocks, the DBinline features 4-way external adjustment of high and low speed compression and rebound. By making these damping rates independently and externally adjustable, Cane Creek was able to produce a custom, rider-specific tuned rear shock with a plush and bottomless feel. Tune your shock to fit your bike, your trails, and your riding style.

The Climb Switch is a climbing feature made to enhance both pedaling-efficiency and rear-end traction by simultaneously adjusting both low-speed compression and low-speed rebound, resulting in one of the most innovative climbing features available. Where other rear shocks with climbing features only adjust the compression, the Cane Creek DBinline rear shock also adjusts the rebound damping which results in better traction while minimizing pedal-bob. The Climb Switch being a literal switch makes it easy to flip on or off; making that long treacherous climb more manageable with the flick of a switch!

      Comments about Cane Creek Double Barrel Inline Shock:

      I really like the DBinline. I had a Fox float that came on the Tallboy LT. Could never get both the low speed or high speed running well, it was one or the other. With the DBinline it was nice out of the box, but I have had to lower the low speed compression 2 clicks to be more supple. I might lower the high speed compression a click too. The shock feels bottomless. It is leaps and bounds better than the Fox.

        Comments about Cane Creek Double Barrel Inline Shock:

        First things first...this shock annihilates anything Fox has to offer. Perhaps you could get a Fox shock close, but it would need to be tuned to fit your needs. This shock is a MAJOR confidence booster...a game changer.

        I installed the DBInline on my SC Bronson C. I was skeptical at first since I thought I would be monkeying with the settings trying to find a base set-up. I was WRONG...I set the sag and went out with stock settings. The shock was SO much better that I had no clue what to change! On the trail, it made small roots disappear. Gobs of grip for technical climbs. 4ft wall drops felt like landing on a stack of pillows. The pedal bob would be my only complaint, but you can fix this my adjusting the LSC adjustment. I prefer the mega plush-ness that allows you to plow over anything in your way over pedal efficiency.

        After riding for 2 months, I did slightly tweak the settings after riding a section of trail over-and-over while trying different settings.

        I am a little worried about servicing the shock. I was able to do seal changes on the Fox shocks but this shock might need to be sent back to cane creek for service.

          Comments about Cane Creek Double Barrel Inline Shock:

          Great shock for the money. Switched this out on my Transition Bandit and am in love. Cane Creek included a field tuning guide that you can take with you to help set up your tune. They also include air spring curve spacers that you can change on very easily if you have a shock pump.

          Shock is a world of difference over the rp23 that came with my bike. I could never get the fox propedal to do anything. The cane creek climb switch works wonders, being able to adjust low speed compression also helps.

          The big worry about the Inline is that it doesn't have a piggy back and the shock would fade on long descents. I've taken it to big bear a few times and have had no problems whatsoever.

          Would recommend for everyone but weight weenies since this is a tad heavier compared to "similar" shocks. But you can't compare the performance to anything else in it's class.

            Comments about Cane Creek Double Barrel Inline Shock:

            I upgraded to the Inline shock from the CS Air. I wanted the performance of the CS Air without the extra weight. This shock meets the ticket! I ride it on regular trail rides, hitting rocks, jumps and climbs, but also use it on shuttle and lift access runs where things get a little gnarly.
