BODY GEOMETRY RETÜL 3D BIKE FIT

The best investment you'll ever make in your bike.

Our bike fit service using sophisticated Retül Technology is a five step process in which a trained specialist will assess your individual needs and tailor your equipment through product selection and customization. We believe that optimizing your position on the bike can create a harmony of power, comfort and efficiency that makes you less prone to injury. A Body Geometry Retül Fit is more than just a bike fit—it’s a way to learn about your body, the root cause of your aches and pains, and how a proper fit will help you achieve your cycling goals.

The Body Geometry Retül 3D system is one of the most accurate and precise measuring tools available. This sophisticated system reads the rider’s movements while they are in motion on the bike using eight LED markers strategically placed on points of the body and can account for all three planes of movement. This type of data cannot accurately be captured with 2D video, static fitting, or fitting by the ‘eye’. However, this data wouldn’t work without the experience of our fitters. The result of our experienced fitters using the Retül system is that the rider will have a true fit to his or her bike, maximizing efficiency and performance while avoiding discomfort or injury.

During the bike fit session, all data is captured on the computer and the client is provided with a full report showing the final measured cycle position. This data can then be used to fit any bike in the future. A full bike fitting session will last 2.5 - 3 hours and will include the following:


Bike Fit Interview

INTERVIEW

To start the proper bike fit process, a trained specialist will discuss your riding experience, goals and gain an in depth understanding of where you want to be on your bike. This will also involve an evaluation of your strength and flexibility. 



Our Bike Fit Assesment

ASSESSMENT

An 18 step process is used to measure your current levels of flexibility and the individual make up of your body, the resulting data provides an in depth guide for our fit technician to best specify your bike position, customization and necessary equipment


Bike Fitting Analysis

ANALYSIS

From there, we turn to our 3D Retül video capture to collect real-time, three-dimensional data from your pedal stroke. This data is then compiled into our system so that your fitter can look at your numbers and dial you into your perfect ride position.


Getting a proper bike fit

FITTING

During this 15-step process, the Fit Specialist will personalize your bike position and equipment choice. In the end, saddle selection and position, shoes, footbeds, cleat position, and handlebar position are all optimized to your body.
