WHat is a RETÜL BIKE FIT AT WILDSIDE CYCLES

Retül creates bike fit tools and technology to help cyclists increase comfort and improve performance on their bikes. Local rider Julie Emmerman and British pro triathlete Tim Don share how their Retül experiences have impacted their riding and racing.

INCREASE COMFORT & IMPROVE PERFORMANCE

Whether you’re a new rider or a seasoned professional, having a badly fitted bike can greatly affect the quality and enjoyment of your ride, and potentially lead to injury. Retül Bike Fits are specifically designed to reduce cycle related injuries – ideal for riders of all levels.

Your fit on the bike is extremely important and affects your power, comfort and efficiency. That’s why it is important to focus on a proper set-up from an experienced and knowledgeable fitter, and we’re proud to have not one, but two of these here at WildSide. Our existing Retül Bike Fit Technician, Gary Moore, has many years of experience and has now been joined by another locally well regarded fitter, Matt Evans. With around a thousand fits between them, we think they make a very strong team!

Retül has specialized in bike fit technology and training since 2007, teaching more than 350 bike fit training courses around the world and helping bike shops, fit studios, performance centers and medical professionals implement Retül fit services into their businesses. Retül was acquired by Specialized Bicycle Components in 2012 and the blending of the existing Body Geometry Fit system with Retül’s super accurate measuring technology has created the most complete bike fitting system around.

A full Retül Bike Fit takes up to three hours and costs £150.00

CUSTOM FOOTBED FITTING

Retül Custom Footbeds are ergonomically designed and scientifically tested to increase power, endurance and comfort through a precise, custom-level of hip, knee and foot alignment. Consider them a fast and easy way to take your performance to the highest possible level.

One of our fitters will carry out a foot assessment to understand your needs, before producing a ready-to-use custom footbed moulded to your foot’s unique contours.

If you’re a rider who believes that details matter, Retül Custom Footbeds are an important step towards next-level comfort and performance.

Custom footbed fitting can take up to an hour and costs £99.00

our RETÜL BIKE FIT PROCESS

Retül Bike Fits are the most advanced and sophisticated fittings within the industry. Our goal is to ensure every fit we complete is the most accurate and comprehensive they can be, allowing you to be able to ride with more comfort and performance and without fear of injuries because of poor bike setup.

Only approved, registered fitters can undertake a Retül Bike Fit. Gary Moore and Matt Evans are both experienced Level II fitters, and Matt is also trained in Trek Precision Fit and Tony Corke’s Body Positioning System. Their clients all speak highly of how they conduct their fits, and a read of our Google Reviews outlines the level or service and care you can expect during your fitting session.

When you arrive for your fit Gary or Matt will sit you down and go through the following:

  • Pre Fit Interview – We get to know a little about you and your riding history
  • Physical Assessment – This will focus on injuries, joint ranges, leg length discrepancy test, and the thomas test.
  • Zinn the Bike – We will measure your current bike setup and positioning
  • Riding the Bike – We will place you on either a Retül Müve bike or your own bike on a turbo trainer
  • Placement of Markers – We will attach some infra-red LED markers, placed at eight anatomical points
  • Bike Adjustments – Adjustments are made to the bike to optimise the fit
  • Re-Zinn the Bike – After we have all your measurements we can apply these to your bike
  • Fit Report Created – Your data is compiled into a report which can be emailed or printed for you to take away

Once your fit is complete we will send you all your reports and see you for a follow up within 1-2 months (earlier if you experience any problems). This is to ensure you are getting all the benefits from your fit and happy with the customer service provided.

WHAT TO BRING WITH YOU

Your fitting will take between 2.5 – 3 hours, please ensure you bring the following along with you:
Your cycle clothing, this way we can see exactly how you are on your bike
Your cycling shoes and socks, you can’t ride without them
A cycle helmet and glasses, the measurements we take are precise, slight movements of the head when riding make all the difference.
Your bike, we can set this up on our turbo trainers, or you can use our Retül Müve bike.
A towel or a change of clothes can be a good idea.
