INCREASE COMFORT & IMPROVE PERFORMANCE

Whether you’re a new rider or a seasoned professional, Retül Fit is specifically designed to reduce cycle related injuries, because having a badly fitted bike can greatly affect the quality and enjoyment of your ride, and potentially lead to injury.

But bikefitting technology can only get you so far, and an equally important component in the fitting process - some would say the most important component - is having your set-up analysed by an experienced and knowledgeable bike fitter, and we’re proud to have not one, but two of these here at WildSide. Our established Retül Bikefit Technician, Gary Moore, has many years of experience and is now lined up with another highly regarded fitter, Matt Evans. With around three thousand bike 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 centres and medical professionals incorporate 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 £180

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 £120

SPECIAL OFFER - Full Retul fit plus custom footbeds for £260

Combine your Retul Bike Fit appointment with a Custom Footbed fitting for £260, a saving of £40 over the price if booked individually. Please call the shop on 01892 527069 to take advantage of this offer.

WHat is a RETÜL BIKE FIT?

Bike fits at Wildside offer a crucial advantage by using Retül 3D motion capture technology, but what exactly does that mean? Put simply, it involves using cutting-edge tools and techniques to help cyclists of all standards increase comfort and improve performance on their bikes. In this video, amateur rider Julie Emmerman and pro triathlete Tim Don share how a Retül bikefitting experience has impacted their riding and racing.

“The attention and understanding from friendly knowledgeable staff were amazing at my bike fit. now my bike is a smooth and efficient ride, very much tailored to my specific needs as an age-group rider.”

The RETÜL FIT PROCESS

Retül Bike Fits are the most advanced and sophisticated fittings within the industry. Our goal is to ensure every bikefit 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 sit 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 bikefit 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 around three 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
