Yeah I wasn't sure if this was the air version of the Ohlins/CCDB or just another cane creek air can like they've been making for years. It's one thing cane creek saying they are making a new air damper. It's another to say that it's an air damper designed by Ohlins.
From what I see there, it's nothing different from the Cloud Nine Cane Creek has been selling for the past few years. Did they announce some changes recently?
The benefit to their air damped shocks is that they are hella easy to service and tune at home, due to no damping oil. But the air damping can be imprecise and affected by temperature extremes, and their shocks don't have platform valving or true lockouts.
In my experience, they're great, reliable, tunable shocks for bikes that don't need pedaling platforms: dw-link, Maestro, Niner's CVP, etc.
