For years riders have lusted over coil shocks for the increased sensitivity and traction over their air-sprung siblings. A big downside with coil shocks is the weight penalty that comes with them. This is where the Double Barrel IL comes in! The CCDB IL coil offers all the features of a piggyback coil shock but without the weight penalty. Cane Creek state a 333g weight decrease versus the full-blown CCDB coil (when equipped with their VALT lightweight spring). No longer do you have to sacrifice weight for performance and consistency when it comes to rear shocks!

Who is this for: trail or enduro riders who want a lightweight, fully adjustable coil-sprung shock made for bombing aggressive trails.

Spring type: This is a coil-sprung shock 

Damper technologies 
The IL coil utilises the same double-barrel twin-tube technology as is found in many of Cane Creek's suspension products. Twin Tube technology means oil is continuously circulated through the external damping valving instead of the main piston. This allows for highly controllable, independent damping for both compression and rebound circuits. 

Climbing switch (CS) technology - Cane Creek's climb switch is unlike most conventional climb switches as it adjusts both LSC and LSR at the same time. This gives the rider better traction, control and enhanced pedalling efficiency throughout the entire stroke.

Damper adjustments: four-way independently adjustable 
  • Low-speed compression
  • High-speed compression
  • Low-speed rebound
  • High-speed rebound
Shaft diameter: 8mm hardened 4130 shaft

DU bushing size / style: self-lubricating 1/2" Norglide low friction bushings included 

Weight: ~285 grams (weight varies by size)

Please note: Cane Creek do not intend for their shocks to be used with a BikeYoke Yoke. Use with a BikeYoke Yoke will void your warranty. 

The CCDB IL is supplied WITHOUT a spring.

I bought this shock for my siskiu t7 which came with a rockshox deluxe select plus air shock. I had the cane creek db air on my last bike and it was an amazing shock, but I was keen to give this coil shock a go as it has 4 way adjustment and a climb switch at a very reasonable price and weight. I'm very glad I decided on this shock because I am blown away by how well it performs. I have much more traction on everything and the bike feels so planted through rocks and roots. It still jumps well as I run it quite firm at 28%sag, and doesn't blow through its travel landing big drops. The factory base tune was very good straight out of the box, I only made small adjustments to suit my riding style.
Overall I am really happy with this shock and won't be going back to air. Coil shocks all the way!

Was hoping for a lot more

The initial movement of the shocks is very stiff/sticky and it also clunks between compression and rebound, resulting in a rattling feeling when riding over chattery stuff.

Adjustments are also finicky, it can be quite hard to distinguish changes in damping adjustments, I did eventually reach a happy place with the setup, which seems very heavy on the damping (all damping settings around or over 75% fully on) and I'm not a heavy rider.

Overall over the cheap fox and rockshox air shocks I had before it does pedal better and descend better with the right setup, but not without its foibles. The main reason I wanted to go coil is for coils consistent feel, especially off the lips of jumps, which it does deliver, no more air shock surprises and getting bucked.

Worth noting that cane creek customer support doesn't exist if you want help with setting the shock up as well.

bike transformation

This shock has transformed my DMR SLED into a mini dh bike with amazing grip. I was at first a bit underwhelmed coming from a monarch plus but once i got used to the increased grip its awsome. So much faster and its now a true mini dh bike. The frame is very efficient to pedal and it hasnt lost any efficiency on the flats/climbs. If anything the increased grip and overall smoothness means it climbs tech even better than the air shock did. I never had to use the climb switch on the air shock and thats still the case with the coil. Given the more linear nature of a coil i was worried about the progression but my frame has a good amount of ramp up and the high speed compression abjustment has bridgrd the gap perfectly. You have 4.5 turns of hsc adjustment and i only use 3.5 and im a fairly aggressive heavyish rider. All in all THE BEST $600 IVE EVER SPENT ON ANY BIKE!! .....5 stars for sure

Plush shock, increased composure and traction

by -

CCDB IL Coil CS installed on 2016 Giant Reign. Improved traction and composure at speed and in rough terrain. Almost as light as the RS Monarch Debonair, thus minimum weight penalty when installed with the CC VALT spring. Spring weight would recommend going 50lbs above recommendation from spring calculator - depends on riding style though. Looks great on the bike.
