The next step in the Retul bike fit process is placing biomechanical markers on key anatomical landmarks.
This process requires excellent knowledge of anatomy as well as skill, understanding and experience in the anatomical structure. Our accredited fitter has a vast knowledge of anatomy to ensure this process is accurate.
Your body is marked up with biomechanical markers on both sides of the body so that we can record your biomechanics of both sides to identify discrepancies that may affect your final bike fit position.
Once all anatomical markers are accurately placed over key parts of the body, a biomechanic harness is attached to the rider to capture 3D motion data of the rider with accuracy to the nearest millimetre. This allows us to measure every angle to the nearest degree and nearest millimetre in real time while we make adjustments to the Retul Muve bike.
Now we create your ideal bike and bike components using a combination of data from the Retul system combined with your pre-screening information and your physical assessment details. During this part of the fitting process, we will create an optimal position while testing and trialling various factors including
