My goal using Retül technology is to gather the most accurate and comprehensive bike fit data to help me make better fit decisions. A great fit will allow you to experience more comfort and better performance on your bike, or buy a new bike with full confidence in selecting the right model and size.
A bike fit using Retül technology typically includes the following steps:
1. An initial physical assessment of the rider, and at this point address your concerns about performance, pain, or any other issues you want to address during the bike fit.
2. LED markers are strategically placed on eight anatomical points namely; the wrist, elbow, shoulder, hip, knee, ankle, heel, and toe. As you pedal, Retül’s sensor bar gathers real-time, three-dimensional data of your pedal strokes and movements.
3. Your data is compiled into a reader-friendly report for analysis. I can then assess your position and make necessary adjustments.
The Zin, Retül’s handheld digitizer, allows me to digitally measure your bike at 13-15 points, depending on the bike. The Zin can measure fixed points, contours, and curves, and provides a complete digital map of the bike.
The fit information is saved and stored. This data includes your personal profile, measurements from the fit, bike measurements, and your final fit position. I will be able to access and print these records for comparison and tracking of historical fit data.
