CANE CREEK damper Double Barrel Air XVOL
The Double Barrel Air is seen not only as a pure downhill damper, but is ideal thanks to its unique set-up options for the all-mountain and enduro use.
The XVOL variant (Extra Volume) ensures greater linearity at very progressive rear stays.
Basically, the damper of the steel spring version Double Barrel is similar. All setting parameters (low / high speed compression, low / high-speed rebound, air pressure) can be used separately and above all independently werden.Dies changed enables fine tuning of the suspension to every conceivable situation and every surface.
The major disadvantage of hard working air dampers is the overheating and the resulting hardening of the damping. While other manufacturers improved by a plastic insert heat dissipation, overheating due to design not even occurs at the "Double Barrel Air".
This has a twin tube system, ie the oil circulates constantly in a circle and not only pushed back and forth as with other manufacturers. Thus significantly more heat is released and the damper always keeps his fine response and a constant damping.
Furthermore, there is no Custom Valving more, so the setting of the valves by the manufacturer.
Through the oil circulation system, the adjustment range is significantly greater than with other manufacturers.
So the damper can be most exactly even set by the bikers on each wheel and every style and adapted.
Thus, the "DB-Air" is also perfect for old frame, which is thus still can elicit unexpected performance.
The adjustment of the valves is done with a special key supplied.
