Pro Tune Suspension for Specialized

BikeCo Pro Tune Specialized Enduro or Stumpjumper

Pro Tune Suspension for Specialized Enduro & Stumpjumper

Specialized Enduro Pro Tune Suspension

We are excited to offer BikeCo Pro Tunes for the Specialized Enduro & Stumpjumpers equipped with FOX suspension. Pro Tune Suspension for Specialized bikes will take your bike’s performance to the next level.

After extensive testing our range of Specialized Pro Tunes will narrow the FOX performance window to your riding specifics. Depending on your size, riding style, terrain and ground speeds our team will create a profile to fine tune your FOX shock.

With proprietary lubes, custom design shim profiles and our unique (very thorough) bleeds your Enduro or Stumpjumper rear shock will have improved small bump compliance, heat resistance, bottom out and support. Each click of rebound and compression will be a more finite adjustment allowing more precise setup whether you’re riding your local loop, an epic trip or a weekend’s race.

BikeCo Pro Tunes bring out the ultimate performance across a growing range of brands. Specialized is the latest addition to suspension designs such as VPP, DW, Switch Infinity and more. With each design our tunes are modified dependent on leverage ratios, bike lengths, chainstay lengths and stock shock designs.

With so many controls on modern shocks it’s easy to be confused when working to improve a single aspect. Pro Tune clients have access to our team to help with initial setup as well as advice for changes to your suspension as your riding develops.

Compression, rebound, volume spacing and PSI balance compliance, support and feel. Why not have access to Joe Binatena and our team of suspension tuners to dial in your bike?

Common Issues for Stock Suspension

Stock shocks have to work for a wide range of riders. Weight, aggression and ground speed variations mean stock suspension is asked to be something for everything. There are a handful of typical issues BikeCo Pro Tunes address.

Compliance. Lighter riders often find bikes over compressed with poor small bump compliance. These are similiar issues for riders on the slower or medium ground speed ranges as the bike doesn’t build up the necessary momentum to really activate the dampers.

Support. Tied to issues with compliance for many riders. In order to improve compliance it’s common to run a lower PSI. However this increases your sag percentage which decreases support, top out and ramp rate.

Heat Resistance. Our proprietary lubes are designed maximize the balance between heat resistance and fluid flow dependent on ground speed and rider weight. Our bleed quality reduces air ingress to the oil which provides better performance with less variation between the beginning of your descent and the end.

We named this service Pro Tune Suspension, but an argument could be made that the earlier you are in your riding journey the MORE that Pro Tuned suspension will help. Why learn or master skills to compensate for poorly setup or poor handling suspension when you could have your bike dialed in by the experts and work to learn proper skills and techniques?
