Retul is the most advanced bicycle fitting process available and has quickly become "the gold standard" for bike fits. It's available to you through our fitting studio: The Fit Lab. The system incorporates an amazingly precise three-dimensional motion capture technology, immediate report capability, and millimeter-specific digitizing tool to provide the most accurate dynamic fitting solution in the industry.
What sets The Fit Lab apart from other Retul-based fitters is our "Chief Fit Officer," Adam Baskin. Adam, who also owns Cat One Fitness, is one of the top fitters in the country, and we are just lucky to have him here in Orlando. You can read more about Adam and his credentials at http://www.catonefitness.com/
Bicycle fitting is best measured during dynamic pedaling action. Static measurements tell the fitter very little about how the rider's body reacts and interacts in biomechanical motion. The Retul system reads the body in motion, in three dimensions. An observer watching a cyclist while pedaling cannot measure lateral, vertical and horizontal movement. The Retül system eliminates the guesswork and assumptive nature of fitting, providing the fitter with the most accurate data set available in bike fitting. The result is that the rider will have a true fit to his or her bike, maximizing efficiency and performance while avoiding discomfort or injury.
LED markers are strategically placed on eight anatomical points of the rider: the wrist, elbow, shoulder, hip, knee, ankle, heel, and toe. As the rider pedals, Retul's sensor bar gathers real-time, three-dimensional data of the rider's pedal strokes and movements. Retül's rotating platform allows the fitter to collect data for both sides of the rider without the rider leaving the bike. The rider's data is compiled into a reader-friendly report for analysis by the fitter. The fitter can then assess the rider's position and make necessary adjustments.
Retul fits are available for road, triathlon, time trial, and mountain bikes. We have even done hybrids for customers. Call or email us to schedule your fit. 407-894-3531 or [email protected]
