Maximize your suspension’s performance with BikeCo Pro Tunes
BikeCo offers proprietary Pro Tune services on the majority of Fox forks and rear shocks.
Fox Suspension is the pinnacle of performance, reliability, and longevity in our industry. Stock Fox suspension comes out of the box with a fairly aggressive tune – which is terrific for powerful, strong, aggressive riders with high ground speeds. Sounds like their World Cup DH and Enduro riders, right?
Pro Tune services calibrate the incredible performance of Fox suspension into a narrower band personalized to your riding specifics.
Utilizing a combination of proprietary lube oils, improved upper to lower fork fit, shim stack configuration, updated oil flow, unmatched bleed quality, and a few other trade secrets BikeCo Pro Tunes improve tracking, small bump compliance, minimize brake dive, run cooler (equating to more predictable performance from top to bottom of your descent), operates comfortably in a wide range of temperature (we test from freezing to 100 degrees), improves oil circulation, extends service intervals and more.
The most important advantage of Pro Tune suspension? Whether you are new to the sport or an experienced pro: suspension that works will let you ride more confidently. You will ride faster and have more fun with BikeCo Pro Tune Suspension.
To ensure that your suspension is dialed in our staff will review your riding experience, aspirations, ground speeds, size (height and weight) as well as specific chassis. BikeCo stands behind our Pro Tune service with a 30 day retune service if you feel that your particular riding requires a shift in tuning. BikeCo also offers discounted disposition retunes as your skillset progress if required.
After the Pro Tune your suspension only requires standard levels of maintenance in the future. To maintain the best performance BikeCo recommends sending the suspension in (we use proprietary lube oils, have specific bleed techniques, etc) although standard Fox oils can be used. Standard lubes will compromise some of the finite tune but with the other Pro Tune modifications a standard lube shock will still out perform stock.
