Twentieth German Champion Title for Sabine Spitz!!!

29. Juni 2018

At the  20th edition of the  Black Forest Ultra Bike Marathon Sabine Spitz could win her twentieth German champion title! Over a distance of 77 km with 2200 meters of accent the maratone vice champion dominated the race on her new WIAWIS-Teambike. During the long climb from Kirchzarten up to Hinterzarten she already could take out more than a minute from her rivals. From that moment on she controlled the race. Only during the last climb the vice champion Sikle Ulrich came dangerously close. At the last intermediate time the lead sank to 12 seconds. Even with Silke only a couple seconds behind Sabine stayed calm and kept the young rider on distance. At the end she could sovereignly with with a riding time of 3:15:59 h with 18 seconds lead to Silke Ulrich. „I rode my rhythm during the first climb and could thereby ride out a advantage. After half of the distance I had to take out a bit, because cramps started to announce. To the end I did not want to risk anything.“ „Of course it is amazing to win my 20th German champion title today. The lookouts were not to good after some problems during the…

NEW!!! Tune Zuckerboost

9. Mai 2018

Sugar was long-time a luxury good and only available for the upper class. The valuable substance was served in noble silver containers. Today it changed to an always and everywhere available mass product. Far away from luxury. By now two kind of people exist. For one group it is basically a staple, for others its real bad stuff. The truth is probably somewhere in the middle, a healthy dose is the solution. For a small dose and the and the conscious use of sugar we offer our tune Zuckerboost. With the Zuckerboost we give sugar some of its status, to be something special, back. With us sugar again gets to something special. Tune Zuckerbost, the probably noblest sugar dispenser on the market! The main body of the Zuckerboost is made of a thick, long and heavy bar of aluminium. Only a several minuets lasting machining in a computer controlled mill give the body its main form. On the first view one could thing the product is done and ready to use. Totally wrong. Directly after the machining the aluminium is very sensitive and can only be touched with gloves. To get some colour into the game we give the raw…

VERY GOOD for Tune TSR 27 Disc in Roadbike Disc-Wheel Test

Disc wheels have moved into road racing, more and more bikes get equipped with disc brakes. The brute force convinces. For a long time disc brakes didn’t make the breakthrough. One of the main arguments was they are to heavy. But that must not be any more, especially not with our TSR27 Disc. The German Roadbike magazine tested nine middle class disc wheelset in their May edition. We supplied the magazine with our tune TSR27 Disc the lightest wheelset and archived a excellent test result. In complex measurement on the road and in the laboratory the magazine tested all wheelsets intensively. Our TSR27 Disc was one of the best wheelsets tested. On one hand our TSR27 DIsc could satisfy with its weight, on the other hand the acceleration and torsion results were highly parsed.“…the very torsion stiff TSR27 accelerates like a rocket: nor set in the test accelerates faster or directer.“ Of course low weight is not enough for a perfect road behaviour. Therefore we equipped our wheelset with a 19,4 mm wide rim and a 25 mm tire. The tire sits perfectly on the rim and enables sportive and direct riding without loss of comfort. Concluding our „racing fast…

Our Tune Tool TT10 tested by HIBIKE

20. März 2018

Last summer we presented together with the German tools specialist WIHA the Tune Tool TT10. A small bit holder with 7 bits for on the go or at home. Thanks to the small handle you can also work on hardly accessible parts of the bike. Natalie from the HIBIKE bog tested your tool and created a small review. In the test she remarks the tiny size of the tool an notices that it is „not bigger than a lighter“. She also created a small hands on video of our tool: Concluding HIBIKE comes to a very positive result: “ Fits in every small empty backpack space and holds all necessary bits together at one place. I like the small tool, if on the bike or while assembling a shelf. There is always a space for a mini tool, especially if it is that stylish“.

Speedneedle 20Twenty tested by HIBIKE

17. Februar 2018

Tanja from the HIBIKE Blog tested our new Speedneedle 20Twenty.

We offer the saddle with three different coloured leather covers or in Alcantare. Tanja has chosen the saddle in red fitting to her bike. She tested the only 115 gram light saddle on her hardtail on some rough terrain. She was overwhelmed by the comfort the saddle has to offer: „the saddle forgives much and flexes fantastically“. She concludes the test with a very positive bottom line and speaks out a clear buying advice: “ Tune knows to combine comfort, aesthetic, quality and uniqueness in one product. As each and every 20Twenty jubilee saddle is made by hand one gets the feeling to have something unique and nothing from mass production“.

Blackburner 27.5 AM/Enduro, long time test bei ride.ch

The Swiss mountain bike magazine Ride has tested our Blackburner 27.5 AM/Enduro wheelset intensively during the last season. The Tune Blackburner 27.5 AM/Enduro is designed for the all-mountain and enduro use. The wheelset offers not only a Tune typical low weight but also great stiffness and a high stability. Thanks to its wide rim it is perfectly suited for thick enduro tires. The boys from the Ride magazine certainly not went easy on the wheels, „enduro races on Madeira and in La Thule, as well as some alpine tours and bike park downhills served as a testing ground“. The wheelset survived despite the „rough ride“ well. The low weight and enormous stiffness got pointed out especially. „The enduro edition of the Black Burner wheelset convinces by  good ride characteristic and the robust carbon rim.“

Tune Turnstange tested by Hibike

2. Oktober 2017

Our handlebar series Turnstange was selected by HIBIKE as shop HiLight and tested. We offer our Turnstange as Flatbar (6,5° or 12 ° Backsweep) and as 15 mm-Riser (5° Back- and 3° Upsweep). All three of them were included in the test. The fist thing HIBIKE noticed, of course, was the TUNE typical low weight. The flatbar only loads the scale with 115 g for 750 mm of handlebar, while the riser is only 5 g heavier with 120 g. The lightest Turnstange, the flatbar, was undertaken more intensive testing. On their own scale the handlebar weights only 113 g, amazing! They also point out the high-grade but unflashy design. The mat UD-carbon gives the handlebar a nice finish in combination with the black tune markings. A decent stealth look… After the obligatory ride test a positive conclusion can be taken. „The handlebar transfers all steering movements exactly and also while rideing out of the saddle no flex can be felt. Vibrations are damped well.“   to the test in the HIBIKE BLOG to our handlebars

New!!! Energieträger now available for forks!

25. August 2017

Tidy! One of the hottest groupsets for ambitious bikers is the Shimano XTR, Ultegra and Dura Ace Di2. The Di2 battery pack is available in a round version, for assembly in the seatpost, or now for the fork. So far you needed a seatpost with a special Di2 adaptation or crafting with expanding foam was necessary. Tune releases a clean and simple attachment for the Di2 battery, for round seatposts without a special Di2 adaptation. The small super-domestique is called Energieträger (energy carrier). With it you can mount the Shimano Di2 battery easily, fast and secure in round seatposts. The attachment is made up of two alu-plates, two bolts and one silicone ring. With only 8 gram it weights about as much as a chewing gum and is nearly as easy to use: Pull the “Energieträger” onto the battery, push the battery into the seatpost, tighten the bolts slightly – done. The “Energieträger” touches the seatpost only with the silicone ring, so it does not leave scratches. Ther Energieträger is now available as a version for forks, what let’s your battery pack disappear savely inside your fork. System integration! to the product

Sale Würger & Schraubwürger (30,0 mm and 38,0 mm)

All good things come to an end, even seat tubes. For more than 20 years, our seatpost clamp „Würger“ has been in faithful and reliable service. But a couple of years ago, we gave him the „Schraubwürger“ as a lightweight sibling, and as time passed, the Schraubwürger garnered more and more customer attention. So it’s with a heavy heart, that we have now decided to let the quick-release version „Würger” retire. We still have a few in stock, (in assorted colours and sizes), so if you want to secure one of the final classic issues, act quickly! For our cross-country (and of course road bike) riders, the threaded aluminum variant „Schraubwürger“ is still available in 31.8 and 34.9mm diameters. Due to high demand, we’ve also added a 36.4mm variant as well, but the rarely requested 30.0mm and 38.0mm are also being put out to pasture. Again, we have a final few on our shelves. Finally, the zenith of our efforts (for all weight weenies) our carbon „Würger Skyline“ in 30.8 / 31.8 / 34.9mm at a frankly ridiculous 5g remains in our lineup. to the saddle-clamps

Great Feedback from John Winterdyk CANADA about our Komm-Vor Brogué and Komm-Vor Plus saddle

30. Mai 2017

I generally think that bike saddles for some are an afterthought when buying a bike. But, for anyone who rides regularly, we all know that having the right saddle is key to a comfortable and pain free ride. An interesting irony is that the more you pay, the less saddle you get – translates into minimalist type saddles. The trick is how do you build a very comfortable saddle that doesn’t include much material? Over the years, I’ve ridden and tested numerous saddles all with varying degrees of satisfaction. However, since I first discovered Tune saddles, almost ten years ago now, I haven’t ridden anything else! As a Master’s level bike racer, I think of two things when it comes to my saddle – comfort and ideally light weight. The Komm-vor+ is on both my racing and training bikes. At circa 89 grams it is literally the most comfortable saddle I have ever owned and ridden…raced on. Despite being truly minimalist, I ride thousands of KM each year and sometimes over varied terrain…and have never experienced any issues! Recently, I was introduce to the Borgue saddle which is based on the vor+ saddle platform. Instead of being a mere carbon…

NEW!!! TUNE Carbon-Socks

22. Mai 2017

Guys – it’s getting really cool now! And in typical Tune fashion, we’ve created something very special for you; allow us to present our ingenious TUNE Carbon-Socks And before you ask, if we have a titanium bolt loose… Carbon fibers (more precisely, “Resistex® Carbon”) actually make sense in this area: By combining textile fibres with a continuous thread of conductive material based on activated carbon, Resistex® Carbon creates a yarn with unique technical characteristics: Antistatic Due to the conductivity of the fibres, our socks protect the body from the absorption of static energy, electro smog and UV-rays. Antibacterial, heat-regulating and moisture-transferring Resistex® Carbon accelerates the evaporation process of the perspiration, reduces the formation of moisture on the skin and keeps the temperature constant. High performance In the case of physical activity, the fibre lowers the concentration of lactic acid, improves the blood circulation and oxygenates the cells. 100% natural Non-toxic and chemical-free 78% polyamide / 21% cotton / 1% elastase … and one of the most crucial questions that hast to evolve for every TUNE product: Weight: Only 25 grams / pair (size “M”) So our new socks are perfectly suitable for everyone who loves to push the pedals like the…
