Every rider is unique with respect to biomechanics, riding style and goals. Velocraft’s bike fitting studio uses Retul 3D motion- capture technology to dynamically assess a rider’s position, within 1mm of accuracy, and then deliver a bike fit that most comfortably and efficiently maximizes performance!
Most bike fitting specialists fit riders in a static, non-moving position. This is because the traditional fitting tools – tape measures and plumb bobs – do not allow accurate measurements while the rider being fitted is pedaling. Using motion capture technology, the Retul system used by Velocraft records your positions dynamically while in motion, therefore creating the most realistic picture of the your actual pedal strokes and body positions.
Measurements made by traditional fitting tools have one thing in common – they are subject to human error and therefore can be devastatingly inaccurate. Even slight inaccuracies can drastically impact your comfort and performance. The Retul system used by Velocraft is accurate to within less than a millimeter, creating true objective data which can be utilized for the perfect biomechanical fit.
Traditional fit data collected in a traditional two-dimensional plane (i.e. video-based systems) is fairly limited because the fitter can only look at one view of a rider at a time. And, when multiple views are considered, they are not connected to one another. In order to make the best fit recommendations, the front and side views must be viewed simultaneously in three dimensions to see how all the applicable movements of the body work together. The Retul system used by Velocraft bike fitting studio uses a 3D motion capture to simultaneously gather data on multiple angles of the rider.
Are you are serious enough to clip into a bike? If so, then 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. An average fit with Velocraft lasts two hours which includes a physical evaluation, an initial dynamic recording of your position, a post-adjustment dynamic recording of your position and a digital recording of your new bike setup.
