Need your bike expertly fitted? Exercise Institute has the knowledge and experience to help you throughout the entire fitting process so that you achieve your desired end result.
What is 3D Bike Fitting?
3-dimensional bike fitting is a system of measurement using high speed cameras to track a cyclist riding their bike in real time and importantly looking at the range of motion of each joint through the cycling gait. This allows for the fitter to make ergonomic decisions based on your complete cycling gait analysis.
Why do 3D Bike Fitting?
The 3-dimensional bike fitting system allows for real-time tracking of an individual cycling. This is only part of the comprehensive process of bike fitting. We also take measurements of your anatomy, flexibility, strength and perceptual feedback around the cycling experience when fitting you to your bike. Importantly all fitting processes allow for a follow up bike fit to ensure you are adjusting and adapting to your position optimally.
What is involved?
The fitting process can take around 1.5hrs to complete. Through the consultation process we take functional assessments, encourage personal feedback, look at the desired outcome for the individual (pain reduction, aerodynamics, power production, etc.) then fit the individual based on the desired end result. The fitting process involves the use of this information, whilst tracking changes in joint angles in real-time cycling, to then provide a position based on all information. This is then reviewed to ensure a goodness of fit several weeks post fitting.
What equipment do I need?
We require you, your bike, any spare parts required to fit the bike, your cycling shoes/clothing.
Can anyone do a 3D Bike Fitting?
Yes, anyone can do a 3D bike fitting assessment: Road, Mountain, Time Trial, Flat bar, Cyclocross and other types of bikes can be fitted.
