The RETÜL Fit

​The RETÜL Motion Capture system is a real-time, bike-specific fitting technology developed by Specialized Bikes. Using infrared cameras, the system analyzes riders movement and collects massive amounts of information, ranging from stroke intelligence to body alignment. This allows you to see the most accurate data possible in real time, which in turn allows your fitter to see the results of position changes both quickly and accurately. 

 

This dynamic fitting system is significantly more precise than a stationary, eye-ball or 2D fit. A proper fit ensures maximum power output and efficiency on the bike while improving comfort. A proper bike fit is essential to prevent common injuries to the low back, shoulder, hips and knees. 

 

RETÜL appointments typically take 2 hours.

Fitting Services

All bike fits begin with a physiotherapy assessment. Starting with your personal and physical history, as well as future goals. Next, we assess your body's biomechanics off of the bike to better understand how you move. The last step is the Retul 3D Motion Capture Bike Fit to find your ideal positioning. After fitting is complete, a summary is provided and exercise homework is often prescribed to work on deficiencies found.
