What does a bike fit achieve?
Regular bike fitting assessments is essential for increased efficiency, injury prevention and comfort. Ultimately this will drive better performance on the bike. Are you maximising your performance on the bike? Whether you want to ride faster or more comfortably, our bike fitters can transform your performance on the bike in a few hours.
What is bike fitting?
During your bike fit session, all data is captured on computer and the client is provided with a comprehensive report showing their measured cycle position. We also offer cleat adjustment ensuring your cycling shoes are properly aligned. The data provided in your bike fit session can be used to fit to any bike.
Your fitting will take 2 to 2.5 hours and cover the following:
Physiological check includes hamstring flexibility, check for leg length discrepancies and feet pronation all of which have a bearing on your comfort on the bike
Cleat fitting Incorrect cleat fitting accounts for most knee issues we see so correctly aligned shoe cleats are critical to ensure comfort and maximize power into the pedals
Adjustment When we get you on the bike we will start to look at optimum measurements for saddle height reach to the handlebars
3D Analysis The Retul 3D analysis allows us to assess how your knees move during your pedaling action
Measurement You will be provided with a report showing 17 different measurements for you bike fitting
What makes a Cadence bike fit different?
Cadence offers the Retül and STT system which reads the rider’s movements while they are in motion on the bike and accounts for all three planes of movement (3D). This type of data cannot accurately be captured with 2D video, static fitting, or fitting by ‘eye’. We eliminate the guesswork and assumptive nature of bike fitting. The result is that the rider will have a true fit to his or her bike, maximizing efficiency and performance while avoiding discomfort or injury
