Filter & DB Coil IL (X-Large)

Check Availability
We're a little bit overstocked on Filter frames in X-Large, so here's a bargain for you. Brand new, unused with full warranty at 20% off.

The Filter is all about maximum fun; a bike designed to put the rider front & centre. We took everything we've learned from four generations of Edit frames, stripped it right back and turned the fun dial up to 11. The Filter recipe includes 27.5" wheels, 135mm rear wheel travel, aggressive geo and of course, Airdrop build quality.

Cane Creek's Inline Coil shock blurs the lines between coil and air. It offers all the advantages of a coil shock, the infamous 'double barrel' range of adjustment and all at a weight to rival it's air-sprung competition. This shock has been a long-standing favourite for us since we were the first to bring it to a UK bike on the Edit v2 (It's been my own go-to shock ever since - Ed). It's one of the most versatile shocks available right now, and with that four-way adjustment it's one of the only shocks which can truly cater for all riders in all situations. Heavy or light, fast or slow, flow or tech, trail or DH, the Inline Coil can do it all. There's both high and low speed compression and rebound adjustment (with a climb switch) via independent circuits. On trail this means greater consistency, increased control and less fade.

Spring Rate

Choosing the right spring rate is key to getting the most out of a coil shock. Work out your total rider weight - including your normal riding kit - then use this chart to choose a spring. You can use the shock's preload adjuster to do the fine tuning later.

 

Please Note

These spring rates are calculated based on the Filter's kinematics. Even if you're used to running coil shocks on other bikes, you may need to check the right spring for the Filter. These calculations are based on 28% sag and a 65% rear / 35% front weight bias. On the Filter's 185mm shock length, 28% sag measures at 169.6mm eye-to-eye.
