Bike fitting is carried out by Sean who has years (and years) of experience riding a bike himself and has completed his training at the Retül university.
A good professional bike fit is one of the best ways to help performance, comfort, injury prevention and improve efficiency whilst on the bike. Here at Velo Cafe Magasin we offer the Retül bike fitting which captures data through a 3D system whilst the rider is moving. This is perfect for working towards the ideal position on your bike it also helps prevent some of the most common issues like knee, hip and back pain.
Fit data collected in a traditional two-dimensional plane (such as video) is fairly limited because the fitter can only look at one view at a time. In order to see how all of the applicable movements of the body are working together, the front and side planes of a rider should be viewed as interdependent reference points. Retül’s motion sensors simultaneously gather data on multiple angles of the rider in three dimensions.
Saddle Pressure Mapping allows us to analyse individual saddle pressure using the latest mapping technology from gebioMized. The system fits onto a riders own saddle using 64 pressure spots to accurately show pressure distribution whilst the rider is moving.
Displaying the results through a colour code or a 3-D pressure chart we are able to make more accurate adjustments or suggestions for the most suitable saddle.
Generally a bike fit last between 2-3 hours with our fully trained bike and saddle fitter Sean. The follow up session takes around 45 minutes- 1 hr. A saddle assessment takes around 1 hour.
For your bike or saddle fit you will need your bike, lycra shorts, cycling shoes and a jersey. You will be on a static turbo for the duration of the fit.
