Cane Creek Announces Trunnion-Mount Versions of DB Air and DB Coil IL Shocks

The same hand-assembled, high-performance shocks you've become accustomed to now with more mounting options to choose from, plus a new climb switch with an integrated tool.

Asheville, North Carolina (December 7th, 2021) - Cane Creek is proud to announce the release of our highly adjustable and incredibly supple DB Air and Coil IL shocks in trunnion-mount versions. 

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. 

The DB Air IL and DB Coil IL in trunnion-mount are available now through Cane Creek retailers, distributors or factory-direct in North America through Pricing for Trunnion mounting DB AIR IL and DB Coil IL mirrors their non-trunnion-mount counterparts - $579.99 uSD for DB Air IL and $525.99 USD for DB Coil IL.
