With over 40 combined years of experience, fixing the mistakes other manufacturers have made in suspension products, we at TF Tuned have recently invested considerable effort in developing the perfect suspension platform ourselves. Using DAC (Dual Air Can) technology to overcome the common problem of vortex anti spring windup and our patented TST (Tri Spring Technology), it’s no longer necessary to have to choose between the different benefits of a Coil vs. Air. You can now get the benefits of both options in one radical new solution.

Greg, TF's Head of Development.

Taking the idea of a single shock for all applications one stage further, Paul, from our development lab, has spent many hours working with LCT (Lateral Compliance Technology) and DMI (Dual Material Integration) to come up with a solution that means it’s possible to have just one shock for all applications whether it’s DH, Enduro, XC or showing off in the car park. The ‘one shock fits all’ philosophy is embedded in the QBT (Quad Barrel Tech), which allows for the usual high and low speed rebound and compression adjustments and then adds a 26”/650b/29”/Fat bike adjuster.

The end result of all this work is a shock that not only performs magnificently and is multi adjustable, but also looks fabulous. When we move into production from the prototype pictured below we will be changing the spring colour to fluorescent yellow so that other riders will know that money is no object when purchasing the best in shock springs on the market.

 @drivereight: it also CaneCreek logo on the shock under TF sticker :-)
  • + 3
 Funny thing is, this has kinda been done before.

Onion Bikes took two air shocks, unscrewed the air cans, and screwed the both in opposite ends of one long can.

 @banshee-ripper: yep, and it's stupid

 What would be wittier than a load of obviously made up product articles? An article claiming that the industry had made a pact to not come up with any new standards for years to come. That would be the real April fool.

 Compatible with left handed and right handed whips aaaaaaahahahah Never had anything but amazing feeling suspension back from these guys. Much love.

 Shennannigan city! First of April is the best on PB.

 those poor cans in that torture machine
  • + 2
 Does the two-can comply with the new metric standard?
  • + 7
 Hey guys when clamping my stanchions directly to the bench vise what would be the proper torque setting? I was thinking 127.5 (N-m) would be adequate or should it be higher? Thanks in advance.
  • + 3
 Two-can, two-can, two-can! Well done guys, great laugh!
  • + 28
 more credible than some real products ads Big Grin
  • + 25
 will it fit a session?
  • + 21
 It will even fit the Session+
  • + 75
 I'm going to buy one for my hardtail.
  • + 32
 It will definitely fit on a honda civic
  • + 13
 "Will this fit on my Honda?"
  • + 18
 Haha this is awesome - love the 'stanchions in the vice, grinder, BFH sequence' As a self confessed home-wrench this how-to video is super useful, now I can manufacture and tune my own two-can like a boss.
  • + 13
 Finally, suspension made for the average joe. This is going to take my riding to the next level.

 There is a POM (Part of Me) that wants this VB (Very Badly). Even though this text is full of BA (Branded Acronyms) Razz

 Excellent Big Grin Afraid the Coil/Air thing has already been done though guys, you may have to can (arf) this idea :/

I had one of those, it was great, all the disadvantages of a coil spring (chiefly weight) combined with all the downsides of a contemporary air spring (at the time, MASSIVE stiction and rubbish small bump sensitivity).
Still , helped a bit to sort out the issue of Marin's terrible falling rate design...
  • + 16
 issue with that shock is it didn't have Two Can's.... This will solve the world of MTB
  • + 3
 @TFTunedShox: Good point. And bearing in mind the issues I had with mine, I don't think it was made with as much precision or thought, and in an environment as sterile as the Two-Can either. I heard rumours of it using the same Pressure Instigated Scavenging System damping as the Helix as well, is this true?
  • + 1
 I'm buying one of these for my bank balance....it shout bounce back nicely...seems to work for everything else...might attach one to the wife too....especially for when I surprise her with a reverse rodeo whip....Noice one.....
  • + 3
 Will be looking out for the review for sure because of April fools, and the fact that it actually looks like a decent shock. Utter confusion has been achieved.
  • + 3
 Dual hemisphere technology so it can be used anywhere in the world ????????????
  • + 3
 all this new stuff published today , I dont know if they are just joking or are real new stuff
  • + 9
 This is serious stuff man. The industry is taking off to new levels today
  • + 3
 This is pretty friggin rad but I wonder if it possibly could be too rad. I try to get rad at least twice a day but this could lead to an overdose of rad.
  • + 1
 Just in time for the world of mountainbiking. How did they know we were in such a desperate need of a new spring-coil-tu-can shock like this? Much appreciated guys! Lovin' it.

 Parody of the iphone ads? Like it. God, they annoy the heck out of me...thumbs up TF, I always turn to you guys for shock work.

 Finally a shock that meets my needs for showing off in the car park Big Grin
  • + 2
 Ribena and milk.... I think TF have just come up with the tastiest damping out there! I'll have to try it myself!
  • + 2
 I must have A severe case of man flu...i was buying this untill the left handed or right handed whips.
  • + 2
 if they're not actually going to make this... i will start using Mojo from now on!

 I still can read Cane Creek on the shock. Seems to be a joint development. Well done.
  • + 1
 'joint development' indeed.
  • + 4
 Real professionals.
  • + 4
 Agreed. Now you get to see how much time, care, love and passion goes into what they just created there. No half arsed attempt, excellent timing. Much appreciated.
