Everything You Need to Know
You’ve Got Questions - We’ve Got Answers
Isn't data acquisition just for the professionals?
Absolutly not! Using data is something every rider can benefit from because it will give you actual feedback on every aspect about your bike or riding that otherwise was based on guesswork or intuition. This means you can get accurate information to make changes and adjustments resulting in a better set up, improved riding techniques and all in a lot quicker time frame because you've removed the guesswork and trial and error. It's a massive win-win.
How long does it take?
A solid day on the bike will be all it takes to get enough data to make massive improvements. Installing the system the day before and going through all the checks ensures the next days testing is as productive as possible. We can do more than one day too, and this is better if it's possible because it gives you more time to refine the adjustments and get more feedback.
Can you work with more than one rider at a time?
Not really...there's a couple of reasons for this. Firstly, installing the system on a bike isn't a five minute job and we want to ensure it's done to the highest standard possible, but secondly, we want to focus on one rider at a time to ensure that rider gets the best service we can offer and it also stops the other rider(s) picking up on feedback or information which might not be relevant to them (data contamination).
Is it just relevant to downhill or is it just for racers?
Although developed around downhill and used more extensively in downhill, our services also apply to enduro racing but not just racers either. You might want to just get faster or get that expensive bike set up so you're getting the best performance from it, so whether you race downhill, enduro or don't race at all, we can help you make some significant gains.
Where do you do the testing?
Where ever you want! If you have a local spot or a preferred bike park then we can make it work. Ideally you need to know the track well to remove as many variables as possible, and somewhere you can do fast runs, but consistantly too. This means we can get the most from the day by focussing on the data, the bike and your riding.
Do I need to do anything to my bike?
In order to get the best results, you need tyres that are ideally brand new, but pretty fresh if not, and brakes that are freshly bled and plenty of life left in the pads. Pivot bearings should be in good working order to ensure that the suspension is working as best as possible, and speaking of suspension, it should be freshly serviced if possible too. All this just means that you get the best and most accurate results possible. If you need any help with getting of the above sorted out, then just let us know.
