Tune Tool Spurtreu tested by HiBike

6. Oktober 2017

Under the motto „Tune Spurteu –  is everything straight or what?…“ HiBike tested our special tool. Daniel explains in his blog entry how the stem can be exacly aligned with the Tune Tool Spurtreu. He annoying problem of skewed stems and handlebars belongs to the past.   Daniel uses the Spurtreu in his private workshop and can totally recommend it: „for me the Spurtreu is a absolutely practical tool, it takes a (small) concern of me and lets me bike more relaxed. I am happy to have one in my own workshop and know fast and precycly that everything is set correctly, super!“ To the compleate article (in German) to the Tune Tool Spurtreu

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…
