Cane Creek is proud to introduce the new Coil IL (Next Gen, G2) shocks packing class-leading performance in a smaller and stronger package. IL shocks feature class-leading externally adjustable DB Twin Tube technology for the widest range of 4-way damping adjustability on the market.
The Coil IL now feature a thicker inner damper tube for increased strength and a 17mm reduction in overall width on the valve body to increase fitment possibilities on tight frames.
Four-Way Independent Adjustment
Built with Cane Creek DB Twin-Tube Technology, the all new IL shocks have the widest range of damping adjustability on the market – designed to bring a new level of control to XC and Trail Bikes. The Coil IL provides riders with accessible external adjusters that control the shocks’ High and Low Speed Compression and High and Low Speed Rebound.
The DB Twin-Tube four-way control of the Coil IL allows riders to make quick trail-side adjustments to increase pop, improve plushness or add support to their ride.
Climb Switch & Integrated Tool
Four-way adjustability becomes even more accessible with the new integrated tool nested in our CS (Climb Switch) lever.
When engaged, the low-speed damping is changed with a set of internal “climbing circuits.” We tune these circuits specifically for the demands of off-road climbing to achieve improved pedal efficiency with less chassis motion. Unlike other climbing platforms, our CS feature adjusts both low-speed compression and rebound.
Linear + Progressive VALT Springs
The performance of your coil shock is directly related to the quality of your spring. VALT springs offer a significant weight reduction over standard steel springs.
Progressive-Rate VALT springs maintain the sensitivity and “set it and forget it” mentality of a traditional coil set up, but with the progressiveness and ramp up that hard-charging riders demand. Progression begins at 50% into the stroke of the spring.
Structural Durability – Assembled by Hand
Cane Creek’s engineers have upgraded the all new Coil IL with thicker inner damper tubes for increased strength and resilience from forces that the shock has to withstand while being ridden hard. To ensure maximum quality control and performance each and every Cane Creek rear shock is hand assembled and individually dyno tested in our Western North Carolina facility.
Double Barrel Twin Tube 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.
Hand-assembled and individually dyno-tested in our Western North Carolina facility, IL shocks continue to provide a level of quality, performance, and rider benefit that is unmatched.
*Cane Creek Coil IL shocks are not recommended for bikes that use “clevis” style suspension designs. They are not compatible with Specialized Stumpjumper & Turbo Levo models. For further information on this, read our related support article. Please contact our support team for questions or concerns.
