    Hi,

    Been running a CCDB Air CS XV on mine for 8 months.
    Is an amazing rear shock,Absorbs everything.
    Only thing is it is very heavy, Think mine weighed about 550g

    I had a Ccdb air CS Xv which was very good, the climb switch was great and descending was very controlled although it did feel a little dead at times even with a bit of tinkering I found I could never get it exactly how I wanted.
    I really wanted to try a Push ElevenSix (see my other thread) but realistically with limited funds (read "being skint") I decided to try a coil version of what I already had and managed to do a trade for one with and Ext super lightweight spring.

    Now I know that the Ccdb Coil is a well regarded shock but I really can't explain how much better it is, on the first days riding I thought it was good but needed a touch more setting refinement, on the second days riding and with a few tweaks to my fork settings I was blown away ! It's perfect, my bike absolutely smashes everything, yet small bump sensitivity is also excellent. Jumping is just more effortless and climbing doesn't seem any less efficient.

    The only downside really is the increase in weight but to be fair, once your riding you never notice! If you really are bothered by weight then stick a set of Tune Wunderbars and a Tune saddle on it and that will pretty much offset the extra weight.
    Oh and they they do a Coil CS now too👌
