    BIKE FITTING

The most advanced bike fitting

Bike Fitting is an adjustment of the geometry of a bicycle to an individual with an aim to increase mechanical efficiency , comfort and at the same time to reduce the risk of injury occurrence. In the process of bike fitting we adjust the so called control parameters related to the position of a saddle, handlebar and cleats. With the knowledge based on the latest scientific research and the equipment that enables us to monitor 3D motion of a cyclists and 3D forces applied to the pedals, we can adjust the control parameters to put a cyclist in a position where he or she is the most efficient, safe and comfortable.

Bike fitting is complemented with a complete physiotherapeutic assessment and assessment of muscle symmetries using advanced custom made dynamometers. In the case of a diagnosed irregularity we offer rehabilitation programmes and individual-led kinesiotherapy.

Bike fittings are being performed in the exercise-diagnostics laboratory S2P in Technology Park Ljubljana

Procedure

Chat with a medical history 


Regardless of the individual needs, each bike fitting starts with a cyclist’s medical history and a clear definition of the objectives and purposes of the bike fitting. We help each cyclist with advice about which options are best for them. After that we talk through the medical history, cycling experiences and other important information that can be used in the process of bike fitting.



Dynamical bike fitting


Firstly, we the pedals with force sensors and attach ultrasound wireless units to the segments of the body which gives us information about the movement in 3D space. Using algorithms of artificial intelligence on the data from the force sensor and the 3D motion capturing system we can find the most efficient position, which provides the best mechanical efficiency and unloads the joints for injury prevention.



Physiotherapeutic examination


After the conversation the physiotherapist will begin an examination that covers posture analysis, flexibility and provocative tests to identify causes and weak links for the most common injuries that occur during cycling. Additional attention is dedicated to areas which were highlighted during the medical history. Any irregularities found are noted and used accordingly during the bike fitting. 




Training and consultations


Even after the bike fitting the optimal position could still be less efficient than in some other circumstances. The most common reason for that is the lack of flexibility in weak muscle symmetries. Therefore we also offer to implement targeting exercises to the existing training regime. The additional training is designed based on the deficits found during the physical examination and assessment of muscle symmetries. We also provide individual-led training using our facilities.


Assessment of muscle symmetries 


After the physical examination the cyclist undergoes a series of tests to assess muscle symmetries. This allows us to identify the weak links in the chain of muscles required to propel the pedals. Based on these results we can advise cyclists on which muscles they need to additionally strengthen to achieve optimal mechanical efficiency. At the same time we can diagnose risk factors for injury occurrence (eg. low back pain) which can be prevented with the appropriate interventions.



Additional visit


When a cyclist is coming to bike fitting for the second time, either with a new bike or after a period of training/rehabilitation we focus mainly on the deficits found during the first bike fitting. During this visit we seek for improvements that can be changed by additionally altering the body position.
