The Retul 3D motion capture bike fitting system uses infra-red LEDS placed on the rider at specific biomechanical reference points. A 3D scanner measures the location of each LED 29 times per second whilst the rider is in motion and under load. The accuracy of each measurement is to within a millimetre. Typically the measurements are taken over a fifteen second period from the side and the front simultaneously.
Unlike static fits, this dynamic assessment gives feedback as to how the body reacts and interacts in biomechanical motion. This results in, quite simply, a better bike fit.
Many cyclists are referred to us by medical professionals to manage injuries and reduce injury risk.
