Performance & Reliability Redefined: DB Air [IL]
FLETCHER, N.C. – January 10th, 2017. Cane Creek Cycling Components is very proud to introduce the newest product to the Double Barrel family, the DB AIR [IL]. Three years in the making, the DB AIR [IL] is the next evolution of the most advanced inline shock. Launched in 2014, the Cane Creek DBInline was a leap forward in mountain bike suspension technology that was revered as a game changer to the industry. However, we acknowledged the need for a big jump in reliability. With the development of the DB AIR [IL], we have brought forth great advancements in our design and manufacturing processes, all in an effort to make our shocks more robust compared to the previous generation of in-line Double Barrel technology. These successful advancements that were used to create the DB AIR [IL] have also been employed into the new 2017 DBInline and DB COIL [IL] shocks, ensuring increased reliability across the entire in-line Double Barrel shock family. For detailed descriptions of these advancements and added features please refer to the DB AIR [IL] product profile below. DB AIR [IL] is available for purchase and shipment now.
For DBInline owners, Cane Creek and its service centers are providing the new internal parts during every rebuild at no cost; that's new air piston and new oil seal head, for both warranty or paid service. Also, riders can upgrade their DBInline to the new DB AIR [IL] while it is in for service or warranty at Cane Creek. Under warranty, if a DBInline is experiencing issues, it can be upgraded to a DB AIR [IL] for $65 USD. If not a warranty or if a user wants to upgrade a properly functioning DBInline this is still under warranty, DBInline owners can upgrade to a DB AIR [IL] for $225 USD.
In addition to the DB AIR [IL], Cane Creek Cycling Components is also introducing two new handle bar remote systems for 2017:
The OPT climb switch handlebar remote – allows handlebar access and optimized control to the climb switch function of any DB AIR [IL], DB COIL [IL], and DBInline shocks. OPT’s mechanical cable design was intended to keep the remote simple and reliable. OPT has two different mounting options to cater to several types of shock mounting orientations. To learn more about the OPT climb switch remote please refer to the OPT product profile below. OPT will be available for purchase and shipment February 1st.
The DROPT dropper seat post remote – designed with OPT in mind, is a universal remote that is compatible with any cable actuated dropper seat post. DROPT can be easily mounted on the same handlebar clamp with OPT to reduce handlebar clutter, and holds several adjustment features to create the ideal dropper post handlebar set up for all types of cable orientations and requirements.
