The Specialized brain shock is the ultimate in suspension technology in a small lightweight package designed to take the thinking out of managing your lockout, letting you concentrate on your race effort, be that a 24hr epic or a battle for the local Strava segment.
The Brain shock works by utilizing an “inertia valve” that restricts oil flow in the shock when closed, creating a firm pedalling platform on smooth terrain. The inertia valve opens instantaneously when a bump force is encountered, allowing the suspension to compress and absorb the impact. This active suspension maintains momentum, increases control, reduces fatigue, and is just very very cool!
All this tech needs looking after and we are here to help! Read on to find out more about our Brain shock service offering.Book a service
Your shock will be carefully disassembled and all key components will be stripped, cleaned, and inspected for wear, damage and function.
Once we are happy that the internal components are healthy enough to be serviced we will start to replace any worn or damaged seals, glide rings, quad rings, and pressure seals where applicable.
We then strip your damper down and fully inspect the shims for any wear or damage. Your shock will then be rebuilt with new seals and fresh damper fluid and will then be bled on our dedicated shock damper bleeding machine.
Your old Shock eyelet bushes will be replaced with brand new ones later in the service.
Once we have finished bleeding your shock we will re-charge the damper with nitrogen and then check the lockout function on our hand dyno. We check the function of the shock including the Brain threshold function.
We only use original equipment seals in our services so you can be sure that your shocks warranty is still intact and that it will be working as intended when it comes back to you. Once your shock is back together it will be tested for function and all damper settings will be reinstated and recorded on your service job report sheet which will be with the shock alongside a free of charge Plush Suspension mudguard and high-quality shock box.
At this point, your shock is put into our goods out storage ready for shipping. You will receive another notification of completion alongside payment instructions.
