History of J-TECH Suspension Ltd

J-TECH Suspension Ltd is the creation of James (Jim) Williams – he started riding mountainbikes at the age of 13 and soon became hooked! He couldn’t afford a bike with suspension at the time, but saved up and in 1998 got a Specialized Rockhopper with some Suntour forks.

Soon he realised that these basic forks could perform much better with an oil damper instead of the very basic spring/elastomer setup they had as standard. So he got permission to use the lathe at school in lunch hours and after a few hours of machining, the first ever J-TECH damper was born! A very simple, but effective damper all the same.

At the age of 16 James left school and started work as a cycle mechanic. It was working as a cycle mechanic where he gained much experience of mountainbikes, he was one of the first people in the country to pass the modern Cytech qualifications to the highest level.

James was a Workshop Manager for many years and a head Suspension Technician, also working for British Cycling at World Championship races as a Technician.

James is a keen Motorcycle Trials and Enduro rider also and has gained a great deal of knowledge from those sports and the suspension technology used. James has a passion for suspension that has grown from the day he made his first damper, a passion that he is always trying to improve on – he is not happy until something is working right!

J-TECH was born in 2010 (later becoming J-TECH Suspension Ltd in 2013) with a large gap in the market for a suspension service and tuning company. James made his own dyno, data logging system and tooling (when most tooling could not be bought) and set about gaining as much data as possible and providing the best service too. This early adoption of data analysis and correlation between real work testing and workshop dyno testing set a foundation for accurate tuning for all riders. 

As the years rolled on, the workshop got bigger, the toolbox got bigger, the dyno got bigger and more accurate and the data loggers got smaller and more accurate. More and more work came in and more staff were needed. 



J-TECH can now offer servicing and tuning on a wide range of suspension products. The standard of servicing and tuning is of the best on offer. By using years of experience and data acquired from data logging and dyno testing, J-TECH can offer a calculated service, no guesswork, no myths, no hype, just an honest job done to the highest of standards and the greatest of accuracy. 

We are currently supporting a number of athletes at all levels, including a world cup DH team, DH world cup riders and EWS riders. 

We also have our own brand of suspension upgrades, tooling and spare parts - wps-mtb.com. Where we've put all of our experience and knowledge into creating some great products to make your suspension the best it can be! 

Here at J-TECH we're always pushing forward with new technologies to give you the customer the best possible service.
