DB Kitsuma is a highly adjustable rear shock built for maximum performance in a design that is incredibly intuitive and easy to use.
KITSUMA DB - DOUBLE BARREL HAS EVOLVED
Continuing the 15-year legacy of Double Barrel twin tube technology shocks from Cane Creek, Kitsuma is an incredibly adjustable rear shock designed to be incredibly easy to use. It caters to all varieties of rider styles, body types, and bicycle frame designs without the need for any internal changes. Kitsuma has expanded on the already wide range of adjustment from its predecessor while also reducing the number of external positions. These two advancements combine to create a discernible difference between each adjustment.
Wider Range of Adjustment
DB Kitsuma boasts a wider range of damping adjustment on the compression circuit and increased range of rebound control over any other major shock on the market today. The rebound range has also been shifted downward for more rebound damping to accommodate the larger spring rates needed for more modern bikes.
See and Feel What your Settings are
The entire range of DB Kitsuma’s low-speed compression and rebound circuits are controlled within a single rotation, while the high-speed circuits are controlled within two rotations, allowing the rider to easily reference where they are within their adjustment at a glance. DB Kitsuma simplifies the tuning process by increasing the range of adjustment while reducing the number of external positions in each circuit - making each position more meaningful and discernible on the trail.
Tool Free Adjustment
No need to crane your neck under your bike while fumbling with tiny allen wrenches to make adjustments. DB Kitsuma sports completely tool-free adjusters that are ergonomically designed to be easily accessible and adjustable trail-side - giving riders the power of a pro-tune at their fingertips
Three Position Climb Switch
DB Kitsuma is equipped with a single lever that switches the shock between three distinct modes, drastically affecting the shock’s feel and character. The new three position climb switch retains the “Descend” mode and patented “CS” mode which provides a stable yet responsive platform engineered to maximize traction and pedal efficiency while climbing over technical terrain and singletrack. DB Kitsuma also adds a new “Firm” mode. By utilizing a design that closes off the common bleed port, this third position excels at pedaling over long stretches of pavement or gravel roads on your way to the trail.
