You never quite realize how good suspension could feel until you have it tuned correctly. Rebound can be complicated and setting the right sag can be tricky. I always thought I could get a shock close to 90% dialed, but I thought I would give ShockWiz a try. There is really only one shock wizard and this is it.
Initially it was super easy to setup. The app is easy to find and use. The calibration process took a bit of time, but once it's done you are set. You want to make sure to get some climbing and descending in on all sorts of terrain to make sure it gets a good reading. So I recommend picking a relatively short loop with a little climb, a fast flowy descent and a chunky rock or rooted area. This should pretty much do it for you.
After the first test, I had the shock pretty close to dialed to begin with, but it had me slow the rebound down and add a bit of pressure to the shock and remove some pressure from the fork. The ride was surprisingly drastically different. I was really happy with the end result and the feel of the bike on the trail. I did a total of 4 test loops, 1 to dial in the rear shock, 1 to test the rear shock after making adjustments, then 1 to dial in the fork, and lastly 1 to check the fork after making adjustments.
Overall I was pretty impressed by this little gadget. I highly recommend it to you if you think you a Shock Wizard and if you just don't know where to start when you are dialing in suspension. You just spent a bunch of me on that sweet new full suspension, so spend a little extra to tune it how it is suppose to be ridden!
