CCDB Air CS – anybody got one?
No idea, i love my regular DBair, and i don’t think i’d ever actually flip it into “climb” mode to be totally honest. Of course, that depends on your bikes antisquat / antibob geo too!
I find that if the slow speed bump/rebound is set right, then the bike takes care of itself on the climbs 😉Posted 4 years agoYetimanMember
I was riding a demo Nicolai ION 29er a couple of weeks ago which was fitted with a CCDB Air CS. To be honest I completely forgot about the CS function and only tried it when I got back to the car park. The shock felt great though, and at no time on the two long steep climbs did I feel it bob or wallow, even on the techy bits, so I’m pretty sure I’d just leave the lever open all the time. But then I’ve never been one for shock lockouts and such like.Posted 4 years agodoug_basqueMTB.comSubscriber
Yeah I use it, not all the time but often enough. It’s easy to reach and the lever is visible so you can see right way if its off. I forget occasionally but not that often. Tbh it’s not essential for the shock, I would be happy without it but since it is there I do use it.Posted 4 years agomessiahMember
The Nicolai Ion 15 I currently have to play with has a CCDB Air CS on it Linky
I’ve had a CCDB coil in the past and the Air feels better (it was on a different bike so that might have something to do with it). It felt like a well set-up CCDB which can be a good or bad thing; they are not lively feeling and I find the rebound too slow from deep in the travel… still the second best feeling shock I have ever used (My Avalanched tuned DHX Air is the best, and it’s lighter 😉 ).
I don’t like using Pro-Pedal and CS type switches so I didn’t bother to try it. Without using the switch I found the bike climbs and descends very well with only out of the saddle efforts getting the shock and fork to become a bit bobby – the CS switch and Pike fork lockout thing would probably help this but like I said it didn’t bother me enough to try faffing with it (and inevitably forgetting to faff it back again).Posted 4 years ago
