Custom 3D BikeFit
Why get a Bike Fit?
You could have the most expensive bike available but still be uncomfortable and inefficient, or conversely, be able to pedal the most budget conscious bike with high effectiveness. The difference lies in the relationship between your body and bike.
So often it is assumed that all tall people are a Large or XL frame, or all petite riders require a small. But the reality is that everyone has different proportions for their critical (to Bike Fit) limb ratios. Despite what is commonly claimed, even gender is a poor guide to what a riders proportions may be.
The aim of a Bike Fit is to balance your personal proportions with your physical conditioning, injury history and goals. A good Fitter will use a combination of data (like the analytics provided by our 3D Motion system), experience and rider feedback to iterate towards a comfortable and efficient position.
Ultimately, the reason for a Bike Fit is to ensure that you enjoy your cycling as much as possible, whether you derive that enjoyment from going fast, or long or by flying down a mountainside.
