Your Fit specialist will initially want to get to know you as a rider. You will discuss injury history, riding experience, current issues, and aspirations before beginning to analyze your position.
Comprehensive Physical and Flexibility Assessment
Your session will include a thorough physical and flexibility assessment. Including analysis of current foot structure, core strength, hamstring and hip ranges of motion, and pelvic rotations to name a few. This information allows your Fit Specialist to accurately assess your touch point equipment (Handlebars, saddles, shoes/pedals) and make adjustments with a sound biomechanical foundation.
Using measuring tools our Fit Specialist will assess your pelvic width. Taking this data into consideration, along with your personalized riding style, you will work with your Fit Specialist to determine the appropriate saddle width, contour, and density for your specific riding needs.
Optimized Saddle Position
Ensuring correct saddle position is a key component of bike fit. Your Fit Specialist will help you arrive at a saddle position that provides low impact, high efficiency, and appropriate leg extension for your cycling journey. Using the knee as a fulcrum we will effectively set your position in relation to the pedal spindle, optimizing power output and ensuring comfortable, efficient pedaling.
Handlebar Selection (Width, Reach, Drop Shape)
Taking the time to find out what your preferred riding experience is and using your unique structure as a foundation; your Fit Specialist will work with you on an appropriate handlebar shape, reach, and width in order to support your unique upper body structure and enhance your riding experience.
Optimized Hip/Torso angle derived from Physical assessment.
Whether your looking for an upright, comfort ride or an aggressive, race position; your Fit Specialist will help you optimize your handlebar placement in order to promote comfort, power, and efficiency while riding in the hoods, drops, and tops of your handlebar.
Handlebar Rotation and Shifter Placement
After optimization of your torso and hip angle your Fit Specialist will take the time to adjust handlebar rotation and shifter placement. This will allow you a comfortable shifter reach and a neutral wrist angle in both the hood and drop positions of your handlebar.
Complete Z-Plane assessment and adjustment, accounting for Leg Length Discrepancies, foot structure, and optimizing hip, knee, and ankle alignment.
The key to efficient, powerful, and comfortable pedaling is appropriate cleat and shoe setup. As such, your Fit Specialist will account for all aspects of cleat alignment and foot structure. Using a variety of foot beds, internal and external wedges, and shims, your Fit Specialist will work with you to optimize your relationship with both your shoe and pedal systems; creating a perfect union between you and your ride.
3D analysis using the Retul motion capture system
Retül is our 3D analysis system that allows us to better tailor the bike to you. LED markers are strategically placed on eight anatomical points of the rider: the wrist, elbow, shoulder, hip, knee, ankle, heel, and toe. As the rider pedals, Retül's sensor bar gathers real-time, three-dimensional data of the rider's pedal strokes and movements.
