    Nice... but looks like you need to take the damper apart to service the air can at least from this pic.

    That would be a chore... particularly in a N2 charged shock.

    In that aspect, the design of the DHX Air and the new Monarch are better. Of course, none of those is in the same league.

    According to SamyRSJ4 the pre production CCBD air shock was seen at NICOLAI bike(s) in Winterberg/Germany at the DirtMasters Festival last weekend, i.e. NIC seems to be involved in testing this gems to some extend.

    I wouldn't rule out the VIPr so quickly....it's custom tuned.

    that looks like a heavy lump of an air shock. be interesting to know how much weight it saves over a ti coiled ccdb. the biggest benefit of an air shock is the huge weight saving over a coil. I save 700grams swapping from coil to air on my AFR.

    of course if its as good as the coil then any weight saving is a bonus!

    I agree, vivid was only 150g over Ti coil Stoy but vip'r saved 650g, depends on what you use it for again.

    Vipr isn't custom tuned just for ref. But as reported does seem to work really rather well :-)

    150grams is only relevant if the air is as good as the coil. 95% wouldnt cut it for a mere 150grams.

    the vipr is tuned to the frame Phil.

    Our Nicolai sponsored young gun broke the shaft on his CCDB coil recently at the german national championships in Bad Wildbad during a training session. The Nicolai folks helped him out by giving him one of their CCDB Air (lucky bastard^^). He rode on to 22nd with 2 small fratures in the wrist and one finger and then we spent a week in Portes du Soleil together. He was very impressed with the performance and a short run I did myself had me coming back thinking I wouldn't have been able to tell it was an air shock if I wouldn't have known. On the contrary I would say initial response is better than coil giving much better feel on sqaure edged hits and stutter. I'll ask him to throw it on the scale for exact weight...

    Here he is going big on the Chatel Mountain Style course on his CCDB Air equiped ION:
