YOUR BIKE FIT MATTERS

We are dedicated to making sure that every rider has the best possible experience on their bike. Bike fit is a huge part of that mission.

The best bike for you is the one that fits, which is why we are proud to offer Manitoba's only Certified Specialized Body Geometry Fit studio, with the highest level of training from Specialized Bicycle Component University’s Body Geometry Fitting System (in partnership with the Boulder Center for Sports Medicine) and additional training and experience with Retul University and Trek Precision Fit.

Whether you are a recreational, competitive or pro rider, to get the best riding experience, you need to be in your unique active riding position. This position will bring you more comfort, helping you climb faster, descend more confidently and ride with less fatigue. 

BE ONE WITH YOUR BIKE

Body Geometry Fit enables riders to maximize power, endurance, and comfort. During your personal Body Geometry Fit session, a trained specialist will assess your individual needs and systematically tailor your bike position and equipment to your body.  WATCH VIDEO

WHAT TO EXPECT

Bike fit is a personalized, one-on-one consultation with one of our professionally trained Body Geometry Fit Technicans. The initial session will typically take a couple of hours, and is designed to help you get the best experience from your ride - whether you are tweaking the fit of an existing bike or considering a new bike. 

PRE-FIT INTERVIEW  PHYSICAL ASSESSMENT

Your Body Geometry Fit specialist will talk with you about your riding experience and goals, as well as any relevant injury history or current areas of concern.

During the assessment, your fitter evaluates your strength and flexibility and then uses proprietary tools to tailor the contact points of your bike, improving comfort and power.
RIDE ANALYSIS TECHNOLOGY FOLLOW-UP
Your fitter will visually assess your position on the bike while you ride, and adjust accordingly in order to determine the best and most efficient ride position for you. We will document and analyze your riding position with either 3D motion capture from Retul or video capture technology, so you can see what they’re seeing and more easily share the reports or videos. Following your fit you'll recieve a detailed report and measurements for your new position. After some time in your new position, schedule a follow-up to review adaptation to the new position and address any concerns.

THE BEST TOOLS IN THE INDUSTRY

Our fit studio is equipped with Retul 3D Motion Capture Bike Fit Technology and the Muve SL Dynamic Fit Bike (WATCH VIDEO). We are also the only Fit studio in the area offering saddle pressure mapping.

While we must admit, we have some pretty cool tools, we're firm believers that any tool is only as good as it's user. Fitter education is always priority. We are confident that with a strong commitment to fitter education combined with the industry-leading technology we offer best in class service. 

OUR FIT TECHNICIANS

All our Fit Studio staff are trained in bike fitting philosophy and process from Specialized Bicycle Component University’s Body Geometry Fitting System - in partnership with the Boulder Center for Sports Medicine. We have also completed training and have experience with the Trek Precision Fit system and Retul University. 

We are committed to continued learning and are always looking for new information/advatages that can help our fit clients meet their needs/goals.
