Rock Shox ShockWiz : Rental Info
Suspension setup made easy or at least with data collection.
“Ever thought that the tuning your suspension was a dark art? I know that I thought this in the early days of shocks with more than a lockout lever, luckily now we have technology like the Quark ShockWiz to make things simpler.
You can rent the device for a day, we recommend you ride in a place that has a mix of terrain or is similar to where you would ride normally. You want the suspension to go through a lot of different hits to get a good range of data collected.
•$30 a day (sadly we only have one device at this time so you can not have two devices setup, one on the fork and one on the shock but it is possible to swap between)
•They require a proper "Static" suspension set-up before use. If you want us to do this it will only be $15
After you have ridden we can analyse the data and dial in your suspension at the shop. At that point we can talk about further tuning options and upgrades to maximize the potential of you bike.

What to ride
A common question is “How long does it take to tune my fork or shock?” Like most things with suspension tuning, the answer depends on many factors. The most important one being the number of detection's ShockWiz has seen. ShockWiz relies on detecting trail obstacles in order to build a picture of how the suspension is responding. The more detection's that ShockWiz sees, the better this picture will be. Depending on your riding style and the type of trail being ridden, it may take a matter of minutes or multiple rides to build this picture – so the trail type and how you ride matter more than how long you ride. Confidence and What To Ride Next look at the amount of input ShockWiz has received and offer guidance on how to increase it.
Confidence, which is displayed as a percentage, is calculated by looking at the number and spread of the current detection across all detection categories. The more detection's that are seen by ShockWiz, the larger this value becomes. To ensure the tuning Suggestions can be trusted, we recommend that you do not make any changes to your suspension until a Confidence of 50% or higher is reached. For tuning procedures that require more effort, such as taking apart a shock to modify ramp, we recommend a Confidence of 80% or higher to ensure that Suggestion can be trusted.
What To Ride Next, as displayed on the Home page, tells you the type of riding you need to perform in order to increase Confidence and obtain higher quality feedback. For the quickest and highest quality results, simply follow the riding advice provided by What To Ride Next.
Data storage: All data collection and analysis is performed within the ShockWiz device itself; no computation occurs within the app. The app is only a means to display the collected information and to interact with the device; such as to calibrate or to start a new session. Since the data is stored directly on the ShockWiz device it is not necessary to carry your phone during a ride. However, once you have the ShockWiz app open and connected to your device you can check the results at any time. This could be at the end of a segment, the end of a ride or in three weeks time, it doesn’t matter. Your data will be saved until a new session is started.
