„cycletechreview.com“ reviews our Wasserträger 2.0!

6. Mai 2019

BOTTLE CAGES by Paul on the 4th of April 2019   „Tune aren’t a well known company in the US. While they appear in many a discussion online, they’re unlikely to be sitting on the shelf at the local bike shop. So, if you aren’t familiar with them, let me give you a little bit of context. They are a company that makes a $220 carbon fibre coffee mug. That’s a bold move and to me at least, it’s a signifier of just the kind of crazy they are, the best kind of crazy! Saying they know carbon fibre is an understatement, and the Wassertrager 2.0 delivers exactly what you’d expect. At 9 grams, you can barely feel it in your hand. Just for some context, a US dollar bill weighs 1 gram, so a stack of ten dollar bills is heavier than what Tune has created. Despite the ultra low weight, it’s a sturdy piece of equipment and even with the very thin pieces of carbon that it’s made up of, it feels sturdy and rigid. Speaking of crazy, it’s worth noting that despite Tune offering a very premium product, the pricing is actually very reasonable. The Tune Wassertrager…

Tried out: Tune TSR35 Wheels

1. April 2019

  Aluminum and brake pads haven’t spoken their last word yet: a high standing match!   Tune and Wheels… an Expert at work   TSR 35: Aluminum version 2019   Tune is a German company that is well known of our readers (reread about our visit to the Black Forest). They owe their reputation to extra light components. Among their leading products, their hubs have always been wearing the crown! Through the years they pushed the boundaries of weight and in despite of their “exotic” status they sure knew how to seduce the most demanding customers… even winning some mountain stages of the Tour de France. To complete its quest for the lightest wheel, Tune has always associated their hubs with ultra-light rims, essentially from other German artisanal carbon producers. Over time, Tune has also gained expertise in assembling the most unique wheel sets! The wheels are hand-assembled in Germany by an expert operator and assisted by high-precision measuring devices. But hold on, this is not the good old gauge of tension found in home editors, but a specific workstation, controlled by computer, which assures a never seen, to our knowledge, assembling quality. Not the kind of bench-mounting you may…

Review – Tune Dreckschleuder for Cycling across Europe

24. September 2018

Tim Wiggins from lifeinthesaddle.cc tested our Dreckschleuder wheelset on his cycling tour #RoadsFromRome. On his nearly 2500 kilometers long journey from Rom to the North Sea in the Netherlands, once across Europe, he tested our Dreckschleuder wheelset intensely. In his blog he posted a review of his wheelset change, including the different advantages of a wheelset change on a touring bike. Tim was already very pleased with the wheelset before the start of his journey: “the bike felt stiffer, stronger, more efficient, and significantly better at cornering”. The fact that the wheelset can be used on gravel, road and mountain bikes made him confident in his choice. The performance of wheels on the 26 kilograms fully loaded bike was also only positive: “the wheels performed with strength and silence”. Concluding he can highly recommend the Dreckschleuder wheelset: “This is German engineering and manufacturing at its best: light, strong, and built to last. The Dreckschleuder wheel set comes highly recommended, whatever your discipline.”

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“.

The Speedneedle celebrates his 20th birthday this yeah, we used this jubilee to present you a special edition, the 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“.
