BG | Retul Bike Fit
NO PAIN, MORE GAIN
A proper bike fit will ensure that, at least from a mechanical point of view, your upper body and arms down through your legs, will be able to transmit as much power as possible into moving you forward, and ultimately be comfortable doing it. A balanced riding position, with handlebars and brakes within easy reach, will allow you to corner, brake and descend with confidence.
We at Cranked are trained by the expert staff at Specialized and Retul University to analyze each rider’s unique attributes, pedal stroke and body position. Using the data gained during the assessment, we optimize the bike and equipment to match your biomechanical profile.
KEY ELEMENTS OF A CRANKED FIT
PRE-FIT INTERVIEW The pre-fit interview is intended to be a quick scan to sharpen the focus of the flexibility assessment. By asking structured questions relating to injury history of specific body parts or joints, we can anticipate problems with flexibility that will affect your saddle position, handlebar drop and stance width.
20 POINT FLEXIBILITY ASSESSMENT This evaluation gains an accurate picture of your flexibility and other physical attributes, including assessment of foot structure, knee position, spinal curve, shoulder extension, hip flexion and leg length, among others.
Peak power output. Aerodynamic body position. Strava koms. These are a few of the things racers and weekend warriors want and need to know in order to win.
Static fit $100
Perfectly adjusting seat height and set back, to obtain a pain free and efficient pedal stroke.
2D Body Geometry Fit $225
BG FIT (Body Geometry Fit Integration Technology) is a comprehensive fit philosophy created to help cyclists ride faster, longer and in greater comfort, while reducing the chance for injury.
The goal is to fit the bike so you are comfortable with your hands on the hoods, can climb and relax using the tops, and descend and sprint from the drops. To do this, all three bar positions must be comfortable and useable. Finding a good “neutral” position for you allows you to adapt to changes in terrain, cadence and effort.
All 2D fits include the following
Pre fit interview
Body alignment assessment
Comprehensive static and dynamic side view position and fit
Dynamic saddle and handlebar positioning
RACE FIT | RETUL VANTAGE 3D FIT* $325
RETUL MÜVE and VANTAGE is a motion capture system that records 29 full sets of rider data per second as you ride. Data is read by infra-red from 8 key points on your body, and is tracked 3 dimensionally, allowing us to uncover asymmetries normally never found with a traditional fit.
Focused on the finer points of your alignment, pedal stroke and biomechanics, this step makes specific adjustments to position in order to optimize performance and comfort. These adjustments are made to align you squarely on the saddle so that you can achieve balanced power delivery from the whole body.
As with all bike fitting we do, our first goal of Race fit is to first make the bike comfortable to you, based on your individual and unique needs. Our second goal is to make you as fast as possible come race day. This fitting starts with a full body assessment, including range of motion, previous injuries and flexibility. We use our own special combination of BG Fit and Retul practices to achieve the best possible fit for you and your bike. The penultimate step of the fit process is a 10km road test with close observation by Nick, our level 2 certified fitter. Finally, we book a mid season check up with you to make sure all is good before race day or just to squeeze out a few more watts that you've acquired from your training program.
