Cane Creek Launches Progressive-Rate Springs and All-Black DBcoil Inline Shock 4

New spring options and a new black finish may have riders pondering upgrades during the winter months.

Cane Creek Cycling Components is proud to announce the addition of progressive-rate springs to their line of lightweight VALT shock springs. To mark their expansion into progressive springs, Cane Creek has also released a version of their popular DBcoil IL rear shock in an all-black finish.

Progressive-rate springs provide an increase in spring-rate as the shock moves through its travel. This gives the shock a more progressive feel - similar to that of an air shock - while retaining the improved engagement and traction characteristics of a coil. These springs allow riders to use coil shocks - such as Cane Creek’s DBcoil IL and DBcoil CS - on bikes not otherwise suited for the linear nature of a coil.

Cane Creek progressive-rate springs are available in both 55mm and 65mm stroke lengths with weight ranges varying from 400lbs - 488lbs to 500lbs - 610lbs and feature a distinct white finish.

The all-black DBcoil IL is available in limited quantities and select sizes and features a gloss black damper tube in place of the gold damper tube. The shock is otherwise identical to the critically-acclaimed, twin-tube inline coil - packing all of the function of a piggyback shock into a lighter and slimmer package.

Progressive rate springs retail for $100 and the all-black DBcoil IL retails for $460. Both products are available starting today at and wherever Cane Creek products are sold.
