Product Description

Here's what Cane Creek say:

Introducing the DBAIR [IL], an all-new 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.

When developing the DBAIR [IL], our engineering team brought forth great advancements in our design and manufacturing processes, all devised to make our shocks more robust compared to the previous generation. The fully loaded functions of the DBAIR [IL] far outstrips other inline shocks and now offers even greater performance and reliability to unleash the full potential of trail and enduro bikes.

"I've been riding my DBair IL for a year now, having bought from TF for my Levo SL. My favourite shock of all time is the Float X2, but my medium frame Levo SL wouldn't fit one with the range extender in the cage (I believe the 2022 X2 does fit, but the X2 at the time did not), so I was looking for an alternative. I've run a couple of CC shocks in the past and have not been disappointed, though never wowed, but the DBair IL had some pretty good reviews and so I thought I'd give it a try. Service from TF was immaculate, as ever, and I was beyond stoked when the shock arrived pre-tuned; It really does look even better in your hand than it does in the photos! Fitment was dead easy, as the shock came pre-installed with the hardware, and being already set up I was able to just get straight out and ride. I've genuinely been blown away by this shock. I loved the Float X2 for it's tuneability, but more so for the actual performance once you got it dialled. I found the shock was super-supple, yet gave me plenty of support to pop off on the trails. I never got to do any super-long (think Megavalanche) descents on it, which was a shame, but I never once regretted fitting it over the Ohlins TTX coil that it replaced. You can probably imagine my surprise, and pleasure, at discovering this DBair IL gives an identical, if not marginally better, performance to the Float X2. I like my sus tuned for a bottomless feel and this DBair IL is that for days! On a 150mm trail bike chassis, I genuinely feel like I have almost DH bike levels of performance. I have never wished for more travel with this shock on the bike. There is a suppleness in the start of the stroke that just lets the bike almost float over roots and rocks, but with ample mid-stroke support to pop off and get the bike off the ground (and this is a 20kg ebike). Then, off big drops and landings, the ramp up is exquisite! I've made a couple of tweaks - a click here, a click there, depending on trail conditions - but essentially am running the same settings that TF supplied. Oh, and the climb switch?!? What a neat little device that is! It doesn't lock the shock out, it just changes the tune to allow more support early on, so the rear is still active but doesn't let the bike sink into it's travel too much. On a bike that doesn't have the steepest of seat tube angles, it really works well. After a year of use, including races like 'Ard Rock (thank god we're back!), this shock is still performing unbelievably well. How well? I would happily buy another of these shocks for a future bike, even if frame clearance was not an issue!"

"I replaced my Cane Creek DB inline fitted to my 2016 Ibis Mojo HD 3 which had been regularly serviced and up graded seal kits. This new Cane Creek IL 200x57 shock is amazing. I'm 65kg. Added all the volume increases then dialed the high and low speed down 1 more click. My bike has never handled with the gnarly trails with such ease. 20 years knocked off my skills right there. Thanks TF tuned for the great service and price"

"Very, very pleased with the shock. Suits my XC riding perfectly. It's not always easy to have the "correct vocabulary" but the bike just seems more compliant and planted and stays online better, especially on downhill rocky sections. Very good service from TF Tuned ....... and they use DPD to expedite the delivery, who are just brilliant. "
