Cane Creek expands the compatibility of its DB IL line with the addition of trunnion mounting options as well as a quicker method for tuning the external damping features. With Four-way on trail adjustability becoming even more accessible with an integrated tool nested in Cane Creek’s climb-switch (CS) lever for ALL IL shocks, there has never been a better time to upgrade your rear shock. The tool nested in Cane Creek’s patented CS lever snaps in seamlessly and is secured by a magnet, ready to make trail side damping adjustments without having to pull your multitool out!  Hand-assembled and individually dyno-tested in our Western North Carolina facility,  DB IL shocks continue to provide a level of quality, performance and rider benefit that is unmatched in the market.
