We are proud to announce the DB Kitsuma, a highly adjustable rear shock built for maximum performance in a design that is incredibly intuitive and easy to use. Grounded in the DNA of the original Double Barrel line of shocks, DB Kitsuma improves on its predecessors in almost every way. It caters to all varieties of riding styles, body types, and bicycle frame designs without the need for any internal valving adjustments, changes or compromises.

  • Double Barrel Technology refined into tool-free adjustment on all four circuits, with a discernable difference between each adjustment
  • Adjustments to high speed compression, high speed rebound, low speed compression, and low speed rebound damping are made externally with tool-free knobs, allowing all of the shock’s features to be adjustable trailside
  • Low speed adjustment in 11 positions in one single rotation allows the user to see where they are set in their adjustment
  • High speed adjustment in 13 positions in 2 rotations
  • 3-position climb switch

** PLEASE NOTE - Spring NOT Included **

Features


SIMPLE YET EFFECTIVE

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 Double Barrel’s “Descend” mode it’s 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.

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.

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.

See & Feel What Your Settings Are

Gone are the days of counting clicks backward and forward to know where you are to make adjustments. 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. The rider has full control and a true sense for how their bike will handle in a variety of real-world scenarios thanks to DB Kitsuma’s large multi-indexed adjusters.

A Better Shock for More Bikes

Redesigned with the geometry of modern bikes in mind, DB Kitsuma’s new valve body and tapered air-can cuts 16mm of length off the external reservoir and reduces the air can’s outer diameter at the end-eye.  All-in-all, this adds up to a new low-profile design which allows DB Kitsuma to fit more bikes free of frame-clearance issues.
