Retül Bike Fitting
What is Retül Technology?
Retül technology is a cycling-specific motion-capture bike fitting system designed to provide qualified bike fitters highly accurate and comprehensive bike fit data. The system incorporates three-dimensional measurement, immediate report capability, and a millimeter-specific digitizing tool to provide the most accurate dynamic fitting solution in the industry.
The goal of Retül technology is to assist bike fitters in making objective and accurate fit decisions, as a proper bike fit is one of the single most important factors for optimal performance and efficiency, injury prevention, and comfort on the bike. A proper bike fit will not only provide a rider with the most economic means of expending energy, but will also prevent pain that is common in the knee, hip, and lower back, particularly with riders who are trying to adapt their bodies to the bike they already have purchased.
The Retül system reads the rider’s movements while they are in motion on the bike, and accounts for all three planes of movement (3D). This type of data cannot accurately be captured with 2D video, static fitting, or eyeball fitting. The Retül system eliminates the guesswork and assumptive nature of bike fit. 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.
Elite athletes and recreational cyclists alike will benefit from a proper bike fit. Retül promotes and encourages accurate and data-driven decisions for bike fit while considering the goals, individual biomechanics, strengths, and limitations of each rider. The bike fitter is the key – Retül technology alone is not enough to perform the fit. The training and experience of the fitter is essential to a good bike fitting experience, Al is a fully certified Retül fitter including the advanced time trial qualification.
What is Retül Müve Technology?
In addition to the Retül system is the Retül Müve system. The Retül Müve system is a fit bike recommended for fitting a rider prior to his or her bike purchase. Retül Müve can be set up for road, mountain, and tri positions. The fit bike works in conjunction with Retül 3D motion capture in order for the fitter to collect rider data and immediately make bike adjustments to create the desired final position. An independent review of the Retül Müve system can be found on the internet.
