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“.

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.“
