Scotland welcomes Retül!!
You may have heard some rumors about Retul Bike Fitting coming to ATHelite......well......it's happened!!!!!This is no ordinary Bike Fit this is 3D Motion Capture Bike Fit which means there is nothing quite like it!!! Nothing as precise, as accurate and as informative.
So, what is it
Retül technology is a cycling-specific motion-capture bike fitting system designed to provide qualified bike fitters highly accurate and comprehensive bike fit data. The system incorporates three-dimensional measurement, immediate report capability, and a millimetre-specific digitising tool to provide the most accurate dynamic fitting solution in the industry.
The goal of Retül technology is to assist bike fitters in making objective and accurate fit decisions, as a proper bike fit is one of the single most important factors for optimal performance and efficiency, injury prevention, and comfort on the bike. A proper bike fit will not only provide a rider with the most economic means of expending energy, but will also prevent pain that is common in the knee, hip, and lower back, particularly with riders who are trying to adapt their bodies to the bike they already have purchased.
The Retül system reads the rider's movements while they are in motion on the bike, and accounts for all three planes of movement (3D). This type of data cannot accurately be captured with 2D video, static fitting, or eyeball fitting. The Retül system eliminates the guesswork and assumptive nature of bike fit. The result is that the rider will have a true fit to his or her bike, maximising efficiency and performance while avoiding discomfort or injury.
Elite athletes and recreational cyclists alike will benefit from a proper bike fit. Retül promotes and encourages accurate and data-driven decisions for bike fit while considering the goals, individual biomechanics, strengths, and limitations of each rider.
What are the benefits of a proper bike fit?
A proper bike fit is essential for injury prevention and maximised efficiency. An optimal position on the bike will allow for greater comfort and enjoyment while riding. All bodies are different and your position on the bike should reflect your biomechanics.
Why get fit with Retul 3D motion capture technology?
The best way to analyse a rider's efficiency is to observe and measure the rider while he or she is pedalling the bike. Retul 3D motion capture technology simultaneously measures three planes of movement on the rider as he or she is in motion. Retul averages the rider's pedal strokes to provide a comprehensive data set reflecting the rider's movements. Only at this point can a bike fit expert properly evaluate changes to a rider's position. Attempts to analyse the rider in a static position, or only in two dimensions, will not provide data at the same level of accuracy as 3D motion capture.
Who can benefit from a bike fit?
Generally, if you are serious enough to clip into a bike, you will benefit from a bike fit. Whether you are a professional or recreational rider, getting the proper bike fit is an effective yet economical way to improve performance.
How is fit data shared with the rider?
The Retul software archives data for every rider and his or her bike/bikes. The client receives a report of the final fit data, which includes body measurements and angles, as well as bike set-up and measurements.
The bike fit will take approximately 2 - 3 hours and prices start from £185.
