FLETCHER, US (November 4) -Cane Creek has a long history in bicycle suspension, starting with its role in manufacturing the original Rock Shox forks. The company went on to develop some of the lightest air shocks available and speed-sensitive valving that lives on in CC’s current Cloud Nine and AD air-sprung and air-damped shocks.
But the big news this year is Cane Creek’s partnership with Swedish suspension-maker Öhlins Racing AB, a company that dominates the field in high-end motorsports suspension. Starting with its first 250cc motocross victory in 1978, (only two years after the company’s founding in 1976), Öhlins forks and shocks have been a part of virtually every important world motorcycle championship, and, starting in 1993, on the auto racing side as well.
The first product from the Cane Creek/Öhlins partnership is the Double Barrel shock, a coil/oil design that incorporates Öhlins’ newest Twin Tube Technology. (source: Velo News)
