Tigon – 210/50 – BDD0022

The Air-Charged Coil Shock - $899.99

$899.99



Tigon is an entirely new DB Twin Tube shock that combines the sensitivity of a coil shock with the tunable support of an air spring – to fuel your most creative and playful riding yet.    

Tigon tracks the ground and grips like a coil shock, but thanks to our new patent-pending RAMP Tube Technology it also offers the mid-stroke and bottom out support that is often required from an air shock. Both of these benefits are now delivered in an entirely new layout that better withstands side-loading and buckling forces that can harm traditional coil shocks.

Want sensitivity and grip? Tigon delivers.  

Want more support? Just add air! 

Tigon’s RAMP Tube is a small air spring that works in conjunction with its main coil spring to control the shock’s progression. With this added feature, a rider will still rely on the main coil to support their body weight while setting sag – but can easily add up to 35% progression relative to a traditional coil shock. These adjustments are made using a basic shock pump.    

Highlights: 

  • Coil sensitivity with air support 
  • Main coil spring allows Tigon to offer incredible grip and ground-tracking sensitivity 
  • RAMP Tube Technology allows riders to add 20-35% more progression than typical coil shocks (30psi max)
  • Significantly increased strength due to the bracing provided by RAMP Tube  
  • Hand-built by riders in Western North Carolina

FROM ROCK GARDENS TO HARD-PACKED JUMP LINES

Tigon combines the ground tracking sensitivity of a coil shock with the mid-stroke and bottom out support of an air shock. Cane Creek’s Engineering team produced the world’s first DB Twin Tube shock that defies traditional shock categories. 

The air-charged RAMP Tube on Tigon allows riders to make quick, easy adjustments to increase liveliness, add support, or conversely, improve the plushness of their ride.

SENSITIVITY OR SUPPORT? CHOOSE BOTH.

“…there’s no other shock on the market that can claim all of the Tigon's selling points. Most importantly, the Tigon is strong enough to withstand clevis shock mounts. Simply put, it's supple, strong, consistent, and resists bottoming.”

Night and day improvement for a Turbo Levo Alloy. Much better grip and cornering and smooths the small bumps.

5/5

Un-freaking-believable! I purchased this for a 2024 Trek Fuel Ex 9.8. I found the stock shock harsh on small bumps and chatter.

I expected some trade offs moving to the Tigon. I’m happily disappointed in that expectation. I have not encountered a situation where the Tigon has not out performed the stock shock. Climbing? Loads of traction and support. Jumping? Controlled pop for days! Descending? No surprise here…buttery smooth. Pumping? This thing should work at a gas station.

Add face melting customer service from Andy to this legendary shock performance and I’ll be happily riding Cane Creek suspension for years to come!

5/5

Had a factory air shock which blew up after 4 months(yes it was “that” shock) I wasn’t going to deal with it so order the tigon with high hopes and it does not disappoint, I cannot describe the night and day feel, this shock is amazing, it eats big hits, is great in tech, the ramp tube is an outstanding feature, the climb switch works very well to firm up LSC. Rode oregon, Nevada, and Arizona so far without issue. I hope it remains reliable, time will tell.
6’1” 230lbs athletic build, ibis ripmo, 650lb vault linear, 25lb in ramp tube. Thinking of getting another to run on a Santa Cruz. Will be ordering a 600lb spring for when I’m not wearing rain gear and a backpack.
