    Cool.


    Is it just me, or is the font on that article playing games with my eyes? My eyes are getting stuck on every "t".

    I'm comfortable with my bike and mechanic knowledge, but I still confuse myself with my CCDB. I rarely time it to a particular run, or change any settings. I sort a long time perfecting my base settings and now don't change it. If I could get the same shock, with an easier way to tune to different tracks/conditions in a less complicated way, because its already to a degree base tuned to my bike, then I see that as a benefit.

    I'm very interested in the price point. I still haven't done the service/shaft upgrade on my current 2012 CCDB so if it is available in August and I can get a decent deal and ride it for another 2 months them I may have some Ohlins mtb goodness soon.

    Now if only they started working on a fork...

    ****, i can barely understand the writing, let alone with font issues.

    "All said and done the Ohlins can still be dialed into a less than optimum by way of going for the harder or softer setting in the wrong environment on the compression particularly but crucially the adjustment is at a very rough guess about 15% off optimum compared with say 80% possibility found on many shocks."

    wtf? i know what he's saying but i shouldn't have to put that much effort into it.

    I have to agree, that was the most confusing article I have ever read.

    Did the editors decide to randomly remove and or replace words before they went to print, just for ****s and giggles??

    BTW, in the small amount of bounce around the parking lot time I've had on that shock under the team tent, it feels nothing like a ccdb and feels pretty damn parking-lot-tastic.

    I may have just bought a Specialized, but this is all Specialized marketing 101.

    "We put the reservoir at 90 degrees, so now it's even better."

    "Why not just make the reservoir the same and use the same basic shock body as the other CCDBs?"

    "But this one is at 90 degrees!"

    Exactly, especially if you think that rider weight range is 50kg - 110kg.
    Do they shim the shock for each size (weight range) differently?

    This Ohlins/Specialized partnership sees a marked shift over the cane Creek connection in several ways. First they have removed a large part of rider decision making to a certain extent and also have the unit dialed into the bike. On this occasion the Demo, but it also becomes available for the Enduro Evo too.
    translation: let's cost reduce it and call it a feature

    "What makes this shock special is that it removes any unwanted areas of damping"
