A Retul fit is a dynamic bike fit using motion capture technology. On arrival, we will gauge your level of experience, goals and injury history before performing a biomechanical analysis to assess your cycling specific strength, stability and flexibility. Shoes and cleats will be checked and adjusted as required. Following a short warm up, eight (8) anatomical markers will be placed carefully on each side of your body in order to communicate with the camera system. Captures from both sides and at varying effort levels will be taken then analyzed with appropriate adjustments made to your position. Knee tracking will be assessed and advice will be given on pedaling efficiency. On completion of the fit process, digital measurements of the bike will be recorded. PDF files of all fit and bike data with before and after images will be emailed to you.
Fitting you to one of your existing bikes will take 2 – 3 hours with our Premium Fit. Our Express Fit on an existing bike will take 1 – 2 hours. Fitting you on the Muve fit bike for a new bike will take 3 – 4 hours. Fitting you to an additional bike during the same session, two bikes in total, will take 1 additional hour on top of the other selected service.
If you are not sure if a fit is right for you, then select the Express Fit service. Designed to save customers time and money, the Express Fit is Priced similar to what others charge for a traditional “sizing.” Contrary to the Premium Fit, the Express Fit only records one side of a rider’s body, instead of both, making addressing asymmetries not possible. Also, the Express Fit excludes the pre-fit physical examination.
You should wear tight fitting cycling or triathlon clothing. Velocraft will provide a clean, sleeveless cycling top and clean low cut socks as some of the LED markers must be places on your shoulders and ankles and movement of these markers isn’t ideal. Changing facilities are available onsite at Velocraft.
In addition to tight fitting clothing, bring your clean bike and bike shoes. If you are getting fit for a new bike using the Muve fit bike, then you will need to bring your pedals also.
Your bike will be set up on a power meter to control your effort. After a short warm-up of a couple of minutes, data will be recorded at 15 second intervals at efforts of 2 out of 10, 4 out of 10 and 6 out of 10 on a perceived effort scale. A fan will remain on you as needed. Shower facilities are available, but are not necessarily needed.
As Velocraft is located within Focus Cyclery, we have access to a range of bars, stems, saddles and other equipment. Also this partnership with Focus Cyclery provides you with access to full mechanic services as needed to make the necessary changes per the fit recommendation beyond simple modifications. There is no requirement to purchase equipment during your fit and Velocraft will provide you with the necessary information to make your purchases at your discretion elsewhere. Mechanical issues with your bike will not be addressed during your fit.
