You will spend approximately 1 1/2 hours with our fit technicians. Bring your existing bike to have a full assessment of your optimal bike position whilst on our turbo trainer. Your shoes and cleats will be adjusted for maximum power, efficiency, and injury prevention. 

The Proces

Anyone can benefit from a bike fit, but we particularly recommend it for regular cyclists, those who cover long distances, riding sportifs cyclists who experience pain or discomfort whilst riding.

FUTURE GOALS AND ASPIRATIONS

We will also take into account any goals or aspirations you may have whether it be cycling Ride 100, triathlon, cycling up Ventoux or riding your first sportive.

INJURY / SPORTING HISTORY

Your technician will want to know about your injury history and any discomfort you experience on the bike. We will be looking in detail as to how aspects of the bike’s current setup that could cause pain or discomfort including if you are migrating from another sport altogether.

PHYSICAL ASSESSMENT

Not everyone has the same flexibility needs or flexibility potential. Our flexibility potential is affected by genetics, gender, age, lifestyle, medical history, occupation, and, of course, type and level of physical activity. We will assess the flexibility in the hamstrings and gluteal muscles as well as checking for mobility around the hip including assessment for any leg length discrepancies.

Cleat position/foot/arch-shape

The most vital interface for power and comfort - In cycling the leg's kinetic chain is closed by the pelvis/saddle contact at one end and by the shoe/pedal interface at the other. Your technician will devote a large part of the session aligning and balancing your foot/cleat position.
