CANE
CREEK
INTRODUCES
NEW
CLIMBING
TECHNOLOGY
FOR
DOUBLE
BARREL
SHOCKS
FLETCHER,
NC,
JULY
9,
2013:

Cane
Creek
Cycling
Components
continues
to
expand
its
suspension
offering
with
the
introduction
of
the
“CS”
climbing
feature
for
Double
Barrel
shocks.

The
shock–mounted
switch
is
a
selectable
mode
that
optimizes
damping
for
climbing.
Unlike
conventional
pedal
platforms,
CS
provides
climbing-­‐specific
low
speed
damping
in
both
compression
and
rebound.
The
new
design
is
a
patent-­‐pending
extension
of
the
Double
Barrel’s
unique
twin
tube
technology.
For
the
rider,
this
means
best
in
class
uphill
performance
while
maintaining
the
acclaimed
descending
prowess
and
rider-­‐based
tuning
for
which
the
Double
Barrel
is
known.
Cane
Creek’s
goal
with
CS
was
to
provide
a
climbing
mode
that
allows
riders
to
utilize
the
full
benefits
of
suspension.
“Until
Cane
Creek
developed
CS,
pedal
platforms
have
only
dealt
with
half
of
the
climbing
dynamics
(low
speed
compression),
which
is
an
inherent
compromise,”
commented
Josh
Coaplen,
VP
of
Engineering.
“A
rider
is
subject
to
both
compression
and
extension
forces
and
must
physically
respond
to
both
when
climbing.
The
advantage
of
stabilizing
the
suspension
during
all
phases
of
the
shock’s
travel
is
greater
traction
and
power
transfer
with
less
fatigue.”

The
CS
feature
modifies
the
Double
Barrel
shock
to
include
two
selectable
damping
circuits.
By
changing
the
position
of
the
Climb
Switch,
the
rider
chooses
which
circuit
is
active.
Circuit
1
has
the
same
external
adjustability
and
performance
as
standard
Double
Barrel
shocks
and
is
tuned
via
LSC,
LSR,
HSC
and
HSR.
Damping
circuit
2
is
tuned
specifically
for
climbing
and
completely
alters
the
low-­‐speed
damping
characteristics
of
the
shock
by
changing
compression
and
rebound
settings
simultaneously.
This
adjustment
mitigates
unwanted
chassis
motion
while
climbing
without
compromising
the
traction
and
control
one
expects
from
a
modern
suspension
bike.
“Nearly
a
decade
ago,
Cane
Creek
recognized
the
opportunity
to
advance
mountain
bike
suspension
through
the
introduction
of
twin
tube
technology.”

Scott
Sonnone,
President
and
CEO
stated.
“The
development
of
CS
continues
to
build
on
this
core
foundation
and
will
play
an
important
role
in
our
plans
going
forward.”

Cane
Creek
shocks
with
CS
will
be
available
to
the
public
in
September
2013.
