Cane Creek’s New Progressive Spring & All-Black DBcoil IL

[Press Release] Asheville, NC – Cane Creek Cycling Components is proud to announce the addition of progressive-rate springs to their line of lightweight VALT shock springs. To mark their expansion into progressive springs, Cane Creek has also released a version of their popular DBcoil IL rear shock in an all-black finish.


Progressive-rate springs provide an increase in spring-rate as the shock moves through its travel. This gives the shock a more progressive feel – similar to that of an air shock – while retaining the improved engagement and traction characteristics of a coil. These springs allow riders to use coil shocks – such as Cane Creek’s DBcoil IL and DBcoil CS – on bikes not otherwise suited for the linear nature of a coil.

Cane Creek progressive-rate springs are available in both 55mm and 65mm stroke lengths with weight ranges varying from 400lbs – 488lbs to 500lbs – 610lbs and feature a distinct white finish.

The all-black DBcoil IL is available in limited quantities and select sizes and features a gloss black damper tube in place of the gold damper tube. The shock is otherwise identical to the critically-acclaimed, twin-tube inline coil – packing all of the function of a piggyback shock into a lighter and slimmer package.

Progressive rate springs retail for $100 and the all-black DBcoil IL retails for $460. Both products are available starting today at and wherever Cane Creek products are sold.
