What is Bike Ride RETÜL Fit?
Retül Fit is more than just a bike fitting—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. Here at Bike Ride we’ve known for a long time about the importance of a proper fitting.
How does it Work?
Starting with a pre-fit physical assessment, your fitter will take into account your body’s limitations, previous injuries and pains, and your goals on the bike.
From there, we turn to our Vantage Motion Capture System 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.
Retül Vantage 3D in store now
Using four infrared cameras that detect a series of 16 LEDs attached to you via a wireless harness. The Retül Vantage 3D Motion Capture System collects a massive amount of information about you as you ride.
The key features of this system are:
- Rider movement is measured in three dimensions simultaneously, and dynamically while the rider is pedalling
- LED markers are captured at 18 frames per second creating millimeter-specific accuracy
- Data is collected dynamically as a set of averaged pedal strokes from the rider, not from an isolated position or view
- Zin digitizer allows fast bike measurement with sub-millimeter accuracy
- Ease of use and comprehensive data create efficiency and time savings during each fit
The only thing stopping you from the perfect ride is the perfect fit.
Retül Fit makes riding more enjoyable by making you more efficient while reducing the chance of injury.
