What It Is

Let's Face It

Whether you ride for fun or are a world cup racer, bike setup is critical and generally makes a bigger difference than which product you use.

The problem is that achieving a good setup by juggling with dozens of settings can feel like taking a shot in the dark. The odds of dropping the ball are high.

What Can Go Wrong?

Comfort, control, speed... confidence, fun!

At best, few seconds are left on the table on race day. At worst, your expensive bike only provides half the performance it was designed to offer.

What's In It For Me?

When it's time to change bikes or playing with setup, Datum let's you see the differences between bikes and helps nailling setup on the first go.

How It Works

Better Setup Through Actionable Metrics.

What tells you how a bike feels?

260psi, 400lbs/in coil, 470mm reach or 30mm rise bar don't.

Wheels spring rate and complete bike geometry do.

  1. Step 0

    GET STARTED and create a rider

  2. Step 1

    Build a bike or load a previously saved setup

  3. Step 2

    Our advanced simulation software builds a complete model of the bike and rider that considers components, settings and biometrics.

  4. Step 3

    Browse through comprehensives, precises and comparables metrics to assess bike geometry and suspension feel.

  5. Step 4

    Make setup decisions based on actual data. Put those questions to rest!

The Dashboard

Build that Bike!

Build a bike and set it up how you want, build another one if you want to compare.

Component selection, pressures, volume spacers, wheelsizes, cockpit setup etc. It's all there.

Bike Geometry

A couple millimeters here, a degree there, it makes a huge difference. The problem is that published geometry charts are generally innacurate, don't evolve with your setup and can't be compared.

Datum let's you compare bike geometry at Sag and considers your components and settings.

Suspension Metrics, at Last!

Sag, small bump sensitivity, support, bottom out resistance, front to rear balance etc.

Some say if you can't measure you can't improve.

Whether you just want to select the appropriate coil or want to compare the ramp of 2 different shocks, it's now easy

They just don't do the same job.
DAQ systems collect riding data about what's happening.
Datum's dashboard let's you explore and tune the parameters responsible for what's happening.
Only Datum can help when trying to figure out how you change your geometry by changing fork travel or how you can manipulate your suspension spring curve with pressure and volume spacers.
We design and manufacture precise measuring tools and softwares to gather geometry, kinematics and suspension's data. Then our dashboard uses this data to calculate precise ride metrics. We don't make assumptions, we don't measure from pictures, we don't use manufacturers material or charts.
These metrics just don't tell the whole story. If you ever played with suspension setup, put a longer fork or shorter stem on your bike you know how it can transform the ride. then why geo chart and leverage ratio remain unchanged? Geometry charts are static and don't consider bike components and settings. These have a big impact that makes conventional geometry charts misleading. Leverage ratio doesn't capture the huge impact of axlepath, shock construction and settings.
Datum's dashboard gives metrics that are insightful and actionable. These can be used to make buying and setup decisions but won't do it for you!

Tailored setups, let's go!
