    Air Spring: LinEair Air Spring.

    DBair IL is a twin-tube inline shock with superior performance and reliability. The first shock to feature Cane Creek’s LinEair Spring, the DBair IL is the best of both worlds, an air shock that feels more supple, linear and seamlessly supportive throughout its travel.
    All shocks are built to order by hand in our facility in North Carolina, USA.
    Setting the DBair IL apart from other inline shocks, oil circulates continuously through externally adjustable shock valves. Twin-tube shocks have two main chambers, a compression chamber, and a rebound chamber, separated by the adjustable valves. The main damping piston forces damping oil between the compression and rebound chambers via the externally adjustable damping valves. Compared to other shocks in its class, Cane Creek inline shocks use significantly more oil in the damper; 40-50% more oil. On the trail, this routing of oil translates into less fade, more control, and greater consistency.
    Climb Switch (CS) Technology – CS shocks have four low-speed damping circuits and two high-speed damping circuits. When engaged, the low-speed damping is changed via a set of internal “climbing circuits.” We tune these circuits specifically for the demands of off-road climbing to achieve improved pedal efficiency with less chassis motion. Unlike other climbing platforms, our CS feature adjusts both low-speed compression and rebound.
    The DBair IL is the first shock to feature our LinEair Spring. Requiring a lower force to activate, the LinEair Spring provides the consistent feel of a coil shock from the initial stroke, full support during mid stroke and the added bonus of a progressive air spring curve when deep in the travel.
