Bike Fit System
What is Body Geometry
Specialized Body Geometry is the proprietary process developed by one of the leading bike companies in the world through Mike Sinyard and Andy Pruitt. The process takes fitting back to fundamentals with a rider centred approach. This is seen in the fitting session, with a significant duration allocated to rider discussion accompanied by pre-fit physical assessments on joint range of movement, stability and structure.
What is Retül
Retul is a bike fitting tool that layers on top of the Body Geometry process. Key to understand however is that it does not instruct the fitter what to do or substitute for experience. What it does is capture data, in one of the most accurate and comprehensive ways available, providing a data driven and informed approach to the fitting process. This gives the fitter one of the most powerful tools available, to enhance their abilities and provide you, the rider, the best fitting available.
RETÜL Vantage 3D Advanced Motion Capture System
Retül bike fitting is recognised worldwide as a leader in bike fitting systems, delivering the rider with improved comfort, power and efficiency whilst working to prevent injury.
The Retül process achieves this with accurate, real-time, 3D dynamic analysis:
- Accurate. The Retül process is accurate to within less than a millimetre.
- Real-time. The Retül hardware captures and displays the bio-mechanical position instantaneously. Adjustments are made dynamically with the rider in motion, with the effects felt and seen instantly.
- 3D. The Retül hardware uses multiple sensors to triangulate the position of the riders anatomical markers, plotting them in 3 dimensional space. This reveals true compound angles and allows tracking of the knees and hips.
- Dynamic. The Retül process incorporates the rider pedalling against resistance to reveal true bio-mechanics.
The fitter is at the heart of the process. Tools cannot replace experience or the ‘fitters eye’, and so they are the most valuable ‘component’ in your fitting experience. Only certified fitters are allowed to conduct Body Geometry / Retül bike fittings. So, you know you’re receiving the highest level of quality and service.
