Velosport Fitting

A bike fit is one of the better investments you can make to improve your cycling whether you are relatively new to the sport or looking to get to the next level. Comfort, efficiency and injury prevention are really important, and a bike fit can help you achieve all of these. By being more efficient you will also be able to produce more power at the correct time. Velosport’s bike fitters are Retül qualified and will work with you to optimise both your performance and comfort on your bike.

In addition to a thorough evaluation of physical factors (e.g. size, flexibility and strength) they will take into consideration your personal cycling habits and goals to provide you with recommendations.  At Velosport, a bike fit is a very collaborative process. Your feedback is important – not just the numbers on the screen. Most clients are genuinely surprised at the difference even a small adjustment can make.

You have the option to choose either a Level 1 or Level 2 Retül motion capture bike fit. This video explains the Retül science fit process.

In addition to the Retül bike fits we offer a basic level fit and a frame sizing service. When you purchase a bike from Velosport, we will include a pre-sale frame sizing and recommend the make and model that is the best fit for you.

The details of each level of bike fit are outlined below. Please do email us on info@velosport.co.uk or give us a call on 020 8780 1978 to discuss your requirements and book your appointment.
