$525.99 $315.40



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.

All shocks are built to order by hand in our facility in North Carolina, USA.

For estimated build times see below:

  • Standard DBCoil IL shocks will ship within 5-10 business days

Cane Creek Coil IL

CLIMB SWITCH

New 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 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. 

Four-Way Independent Adjustment

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.

By far the best shock I've ever ridden. It handles the steep and knarly as well as the smooth and buttery. I ride in the BC interior on DH and XC trails including the parks. This shock has never let me down. It's durable, tunable and the performance both up an down are amazing. It's been on my Trance sx for 2.5 years and I'm looking to install a Cane creek full setup on my new rig.

Unfortunately, we no longer produce shocks in the size required by this bike. (267mm eye-to-eye)

Apologies, we do not have any German speakers and Google Translate did not help me interpret your question very well. Please reach out directly to our rider support team at support@canecreek.com with your best attempt at an English translation, thank you! For local support in German, please contact Cosmic Sports. They are our distributor and main sales/support force in Germany.

Hello, I'm looking for a shock that would fit my 2019 Scott genius 950, there's not a lot of clearance for a piggy back, was wondering if the DB Coil IL Trunnion G1 – 185 x 52.5mm – BAD2548 will be a good fit, thanks in advance. Saul Quezada asked on December 1, 2023

Unfortunately, the clearance between the seat tube and shock is too minimal to accept any of our shocks. They contact the frame and could cause an issue. Better luck next time!

DBcoil IL G1 - will this fit on a Bulls Copperhead AM3 750 Trunion? Also can I use my exisitng cane creek progressive coil that is currently on another shock that is a traditional 230X60? I am a 210 lbs rider Chris Faydo asked on November 19, 2023

I cannot locate the shock size specifications of this bike. I would recommend reaching out to Bulls to confirm what the shock sizing is first. That said, this is not one that we have test fit - so I cannot be 100% certain that our shock would fit in this frame. It will naturally require a bit of experimentation. The measurements of our IL shocks can be found on their respective product pages.

Will this fit a 2019 Niner Rip e9 and what spring should I get? 170lbs rider. Thanks Erwin asked on November 8, 2023

We no longer have the G1 Coil IL in the size required by your bike (210 x 55) but it would be a great fit for the current generation of that shock!

Got this (old) version on sale after the new version came out, and have been very impressed with the performance. Great shock - feels sensitive/supple but also supportive and poppy when I need it. Nice work Cane Creek.

Replaced my worn out air shock with this coil rather than waiting a couple weeks with no bike for repair. The shock and spring added less than the weight of a banana. The factory tune feels perfect unfortunately shock wiz can’t verify as it only works with air springs.
