A proper bike fit is essential for injury prevention and to maximize efficiency An optimal position on the bike will allow for greater comfort which translates to riding longer, using less energy and of course more enjoyment while riding. All bodies are different and your position on the bike should reflect your bio mechanics
The software establishes a file for each rider and within that file, the bike and final fit data is stored by each bike the rider would like to be fit to. The client receives a printed report of the final fit, so with an understanding of frame geometry differences and proper measuring tools, the cyclist can duplicate the numbers themselves on a new bike. Keep in mind that different types of riding may require different rider positions.
Basically, you will need everything that you noramally ride / race with. - Bike(s) - Cycling clothing and shoes, gloves if you ride with them - If you have one, your aero helmet for TT/Triathlon fits. - Any insoles, shoe wedges you may have. - Professional referral letters. ** Please ensure shoes and clothes are [...]
- Video analysis is two-dimensional, while motion capture is three dimensional. A small error is added to measurements by not including all three dimensions in the calculation process. Small errors make big differences in bike fit. - Video cameras have narrow field of view. Retul sensors have a wide field of view. This means that the video camera must [...]
The best way to analyse a riders efficiency is to observe and measure the rider while he or she is pedalling on the bike. Retul 3 d motion capture technology simultaneously measures three planes of movement on the rider as he or she is in motion. Retul averages the risers pedal strokes to provide a comprehensive data set reflecting [...]
