Air IL

SHORT TRAVEL, BIG PERFORMANCE - $629.99



A powerful shock that’s light and supportive enough for crushing climbs, with the damping performance of much heavier, piggyback shocks for ripping fast descents. Designed for the rider who values going up as much as going down and proves that your bike’s capability cannot be measured in wheel travel. 

Air IL offers better damping and smoother suspension performance than other shocks in its class. 

Powered by DB Twin Tube technology, IL gives a super wide range of 4-way damping adjustability and uses 30% more oil volume in the damper compared to other inline shocks. Stock-level suspension makes all kinds of concessions to suit the larger market, and when the amount of rear travel is already minimal, IL is perhaps the most noticeable upgrade you can make to your bike’s performance. 

Highlights 

  • Four-way independent adjustment 
  • Climb Switch & integrated tool 
  • Thicker inner damper tube for increased strength 
  • 17mm reduction in overall width on the valve body to increase fitment possibilities on tight frames 
  • 6mm reduction in the outer diameter of the air spring to further increase the likelihood of fitment 
  • Increased max psi pressure up to 350psi (Up from 300psi) 

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.

Will this shock fit on the new 2024 Orbea Ooiz OMX frame? It’s originally specced with the Fox Float SL Factory which has a smaller diameter can. The DPS model can does not fit as the can diameter is too big and the SL is outnof stock at the moment radomil kalinowski asked on March 26, 2024

Hello, please email us at support@canecreek.com and we can help you with your rear shock fitment question as we do not have any fitment specs on this model Orbea. Thanks

Will this fit 2023 Transition Spur? Wesley asked on January 13, 2024

Yes. And it would be a fantastic pairing! IL shocks take bikes like the Spur to the next level when it comes to suspension performance. The damping consistency and control will blow you away on long descents. You'll need a 190 x 45mm shock with (1x)30x8mm, and (1x)25x8mm hardware.

Will the Air IL Standard Mount (Next Gen) - 210 x 50 fit a 2023 Propain Hugene frame? Ante asked on December 14, 2023

Unfortunately, we have not been able to confirm fitment on this particular frame. Please reach out to our rider support team at support@canecreek.com to see if we have a good dealer in your area that may be willing to help with a test fitment.

5/5

Much better than the Rockshox Sidluxe that came on my Transition Spur! This one is holding up well so far, the Sidluxe leaked oil and air and was pretty useless after not long at all. Little tricky to tune and setup, but love that you can tune the high and low speed compression and rebound. Doesn't work with a shockwiz though due to the nature of the dual air chambers. Feels great riding though, even though my tuning/setup could probably be better!
