DBcoil IL is the lightest weight coil shock on the market, while using 40-50% more damper oil compared to other shocks in its class. The DBcoil IL is the first ever twin-tube inline shock that packs in all of the function of a piggyback coil shock in a lighter and sleeker package.
Oil circulates continuously through externally adjustable shock valves. Twin-tube shocks have two main chambers, a compression chamber, and a rebound chamber, separated by the adjustable valves. The main damping piston forces damping oil between the compression and rebound chambers via the externally adjustable damping valves. On the trail, this routing of oil translates into less fade, more control, and greater consistency.
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 via 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.
The DBcoil IL offers an unparalleled range of adjustability through external adjusters that independently control each phase of damping without crossover effects. High and low speed compression, and high and low speed rebound are independently adjusted.
Other inline shocks typically provide the user with a single rebound adjustment or rebound combined with limited pre-set low-speed compression. The easy tunability of DBcoil IL means a rider can make a quick trail-side change, increasing pop, plushness, or other features for personalized fine-tuning.
According to Pivot's website the Shadowcat use a 185mm x 55mm shock which we do offer in DBCoil IL.
They recommend the DHX2 since they are partnered with Fox, but Fox's springs are larger or the same outer diameter (OD) than our VALT, and the DHX2's cylinder head (the part with all the adjustments and reservoir) is larger than our DBCoil IL as well so I am confident the DBCoil IL will fit your Shadowcat.
