With the development of the Double Barrel IL, Cane Creek has brought forth great advancements in their design and manufacturing processes, all in an effort to make their shocks more robust compared to the previous generation of in-line Double Barrel technology.

Exclusive Twin Tube Technology circulates oil continuously through the damping valving to achieve highly controllable, independent damping for both compression and rebound strokes. This unique design moves oil through externally adjustable valving instead of the main piston, allowing for superior tunability and eliminating the need for internal valving changes to achieve proper shock setup.
Low Speed Compression (LSC) is used to manage traction and chassis stabilization. LSC adjustment eliminates pedal induced " bob" , influences small bump sensitivity, reduces brake dive and determines how the bike will react to weight changes. The Double Barrel Air IL decouples LSC from HSC so the shock can address the aforementioned issues while still feeling plush and bottomless.
High Speed Compression (HSC) is critical to absorbing energy from high impact forces, such as square edge hits and harsh landings. It also aids in bottom-out resistance. Double Barrel Air IL manages HSC through an adjustable poppet valve and full oil circuit flow path. The wide adjustment range allows for custom, rider-specific tuning.
Low Speed Rebound (LSR) works in concert with LSC to stabilize the chassis and manage traction. It is analogous to the single rebound adjuster on most other rear shocks. Rider-tuned LSR adjustment (combined with LSC) ensures maximum traction during technical climbs, high-speed chatter, off-camber corners and braking in stutter bumps.
High Speed Rebound (HSR) control enables a bike to recover quickly from deep in suspension travel while allowing for controlled take-offs from jump faces. Independent control of HSR and LSR, eliminates bucking (a high shaft speed problem) while preventing the shock from packing up (a low shaft speed problem) by inducing quick recovery.
Climbing Switch Technology:
CS is the most innovative climbing feature available. This proprietary climbing feature (patent-pending) for Double Barrel shocks alters the entire low frequency dynamic response of the shock to specifically address the demands of ascending on a bicycle.
LinEair Air Spring:
The first shock to feature Cane Creek’s LinEair Spring, the Double Barrel Air IL is the best of both worlds, an air shock that feels more supple, linear and seamlessly supportive throughout its travel. Requiring a lower force to activate, the LinEair Spring provides the consistent feel of a coil shock from the initial stroke, full support during mid stroke and the added bonus of a progressive air spring curve when deep in the travel.
