Strengths:    I put this on a 2013 Enduro. Most of my riding is up for miles, then down and I wanted a better platform than the stock CCDB Air. It delivers on the climbs for sure. Great pedaling platform was looking for on the ascents. BUT, it is not the CCDB on the descents. It feels better than any other air shock I've tried, with the exception of the CCDB. But for me, it's a great compromise.

It's also very light as compared to the CCBD Air.

Weaknesses:    Only three settings for compression damping. Still, the Firm setting is great... 6.5 inches of travel with little suspension bob on the climbs. The mid is ok, and the fully open for the down hills is not as composed as the CCDB Air. Ramps up a little harsh and comes back a little harsh, but my point of reference is the CCBD Air.

Bottom Line:   
If you ride up up up, then down; it's a great shock. If you are coming from anything other than the CCDB Air, it's an all-around upgrade. I will be throwing on the CCDB for park use, but otherwise this shock will remain on the bike.

I purchased the shock M/M tune. The air volume can is huge. I had to pump the shock to 340psi to achieve 25% sag. I weigh 235 geared up. Thankfully I have some volume reducing bands I can install. I probably won't get a ride in until Mon or Tuesday. I am very curious to see how it rides. I'm coming ... Read More »
