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.
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. The video below shows the data being captured as well as the riders pedaling style and traces from the knee vertically and in relation to the bike frame whilst under load.
Our bike fitter collects the bike fit data in real time and it can be viewed by the rider as it is captured (screenshot below). We record and compare data for both sides of the rider to determine symmetry and any differences in biomechanics between left and right hand sides.
