EASY TO USE AND ACCURATE SHOCK PUMP FOR YOUR FRONT AND REAR SHOCKS
When you get your new mountain bike you want it to feel and work its best from the beginnng and ongoing. Setting up the suspension for your MTB will significantly change how the bike feels, so it’s worth taking the time to get it right using our precision calibrated bike shock pump.
Our easy to use and accurate shock pump can be used for rear and front bike suspension including Rockshox and Fox shocks. The pump is capable of delivering up to 300 psi / 20 BAR with a clear and easy to read 1.5″ industrial gauge with PSI and BAR readout. The pump design uses a 2 Stage Anti-Leak valve head, which delivers a secure connection when pumping and no leaks when removed. Fine tune bleeder button enables you to obtain the exact pressure for the ultimate comfort on your ride.
The pump is comfortable and straightforward to use as it features an ergonomic T-handle for pinch-free pumping. The 6″ swivel hose with pivot mount design makes it easy to get things lined up and pump at any angle.
WHAT IS SUSPENSION SAG?
Suspension sag is the amount of suspension travel used when you are sitting on your bike in a natural riding position. This means that when you get on your bike and have your weight distributed like you would when riding, the suspension should be compressed some amount. The reason that we want sag is so the wheels are able to conform to the contour and shape of the ground while riding over rough terrain.
With too much sag, meaning the suspension travel is compressed too much when weighted, the suspension may bottom out too often and the bike’s geometry may be out of wack making it harder to corner, jump, etc. With not enough sag, you aren’t getting the full benefit of a suspension mountain bike and the bike will struggle to find traction.
HOW TO DIAL IN YOUR SHOCKS FOR A GREAT RIDE
There are two main steps to setting your suspension
1. Setting your sag – the amount of movement in your suspension.
2. Setting your damping – how quickly the fork or shock returns to its resting position after it has compressed.
To set your sag, use your shock pump to adjust the air level in your stanchions so that they sink approximately 25% of their total length when you put all your weight through the bike.If the movement is less than 25% of the stanchion’s length, you need to bleed air from your shocks with the shock pump. If the movement is more than 25%, you need to add air with your shock pump. This process requires a little trial and error and it helps to have a friend assist you.
When you’re happy that your stanchions are moving around 25% down the shock/fork, take a note of the pressure that you have in the stanchion for future reference. You will next need to set your damping by adjusting the rebound knobs on your suspension.
