Quarq’s suspension optimizing gadget ShockWiz gets even better thanks to a recent App overhaul, plus new lower pricing. ShockWiz now features new custom tuning that gives riders even more control in setting their bike up. And the new mobile app lets you save multiple profiles, to even tailor your tunes to favorite trails…
ShockWiz new custom suspension tunes and ride profiles
On the market now for a year after Quarq parent SRAM bought up the original crowdfunded project, ShockWiz keeps getting better. The latest updates are our favorite kind: over-the-air software improvements, by way of the newest version of their mobile app. That means anyone already using a ShockWiz gets all the same functional upgrades, by downloading the latest ShockWiz app.
In addition to the standard “Balanced” and “Playful” tuning modes, ShockWiz now offers more customized tuning to better match to more riding styles.
New “Aggressive” and “Efficient” modes offer a wider range of air pressure, spring rate, compression, and rebound suggestions, based on more types of riding. That’s especially helpful for DH or XC/Marathon mountain bikers, more at the outer ends of the spectrum of trail riders who have been the first to adopt the ShockWiz.
The other big update – Rider or Trail Profiles – looks to have already been rolled into the most recent version of the mobile app for Android or iOS. By adding profiles to the app, users can save suspension settings in the app, storing their favorite setup for different riders, each of their bikes, or even specific trails & trail conditions.
So now, before you head out for a big ride, just pull the data up via the app, make some quick shock adjustments, and have the custom settings ideal for that specific ride. Rider profiles are saved with your login too, so they even sync across different mobile devices with the app installed.
Another fun recently added feature – jump stats. Jump Count, Average Jump, Longest Jump, Total Air Time? ShockWiz now tracks all of that for you too.
If you don’t already have a ShockWiz, the best news is lower pricing, which should make the device more appealing to a wider audience. The standard ShockWiz that gets zip-tied onto the bike will cost you seventy bucks less, now down to $330. The direct-mount version that threads directly onto the air valve for inverted forks gets the same reduction, now down to $380. Get either direct from Quarq, and get to optimizing your suspension.
