Owners of the Cane Creek Double Barrel rear shock have a new set-up tool in the palm of their hands. DIALED, now available for iOS and Android users, is a free mobile application that turns a smart phone into a suspension guru by teaching riders the art of suspension tuning in a quick and simple format.
“Well tuned suspension gives a rider more confidence which can lead to the truly perfect day on a bike,” explained VP of sales and marketing Holly Colson. “Double Barrel shocks offer an almost limitless tuning range, therefore we consider it our obligation to back up this powerful capability with the right tools and support for our riders”.
DIALED offers an easy and interactive platform that allows the rider to quickly receive a high level of feedback and instruction so they can get the best performance out of their bike. Designed for entry-level riders up to advanced suspension wizards, DIALED gives the option of walking through the steps of a full tuning session or entering an established personal tune and tweaking it. Riders can explore the effects of each adjustment to get the most out of their bike based on their individual preferences.
To set up a bike, DIALED connects to the Cane Creek suspension database of over 6000 full-suspension mountain bikes and accesses shock configuration and custom base tune settings. For those who are new to the suspension tuning process, DIALED will interactively teach them the steps to take and provide adjustment recommendations for this bike while on the trail and based upon the rider’s feedback.
Cane Creek has also worked with partners and special guests on educational video pieces so a rider can learn how to set sag or adjust air volume from experts. If a rider already has a tune they can enter it in, tweak as needed, and store all of their set up details and trail notes in one place for an unlimited number of bikes set ups.
