CTD

CTD Explained

Climb. Trail. Descend. CTD is our integrated ride dynamics system that makes it easy to set up your fork and shock to work together for unprecedented performance in all types of terrain. It's intuitive to use and can be instantly activated while riding.

Just select one of three modes — Climb, Trail, or Descend — via a single remote lever or individual component levers. Complementing the CTD system is our new D.O.S.S. height-adjustable seatpost. It features the same three modes — Climb, Trail, and Descend — for the ultimate ride control system.

Climb ModeClimb

Seatpost

Extends to highest travel setting for full leg extension and maximum climbing power.

Fork & Shock

The firmest low-speed compression setting is activated for maximum pedaling efficiency.

The Climb mode setting of each fork is optimized for its specific travel — the shorter the travel, the firmer the ride tune and feel.

Trail ModeTrail

Seatpost

Drops to the middle height position for a lower center of gravity and the perfect balance of pedaling efficiency and control on roots, rocks and other trail obstacles.

Fork & Shock

Moderate low-speed compression setting is activated for an optimal blend of pedaling efficiency and bike control on variable terrain. Factory Series products offer three levels of Trail-mode adjust. Performance and Evolution products are preset with low-speed compression damping.
