Fitting for your Spin Class Bike
Why should every spin participant invest in a proper Spin Bike Fit?
The most common reason why spin cyclists stop participating in spin class is discomfort on the spin bike.
A proper bike fit is essential for injury prevention and maximized power. An optimal position on the bike will allow for greater comfort and enjoyment while riding. All bodies are different and your position on the bike should reflect your biomechanics.
Why get fit with Retul 3D motion capture technology?
The best way to analyze a rider's efficiency is to observe and measure the rider while he or she is pedaling the bike. Retul 3D motion capture technology simultaneously measures three planes of movement on the rider as he or she is in motion. Retul averages the rider's pedal strokes to provide a comprehensive data set reflecting the rider's movements. Only at this point can a bike fit expert properly evaluate changes to a rider's position. Attempts to analyze the rider in a static position, or only in two dimensions, will not provide data at the same level of accuracy as 3D motion capture.
Who can benefit from a bike fit?
Generally, if you are serious enough to clip into a bike, 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.
