Our Level One Fit starts with a thorough verbal interview where we will understand your history, goals and limitations. By understanding your goals we will work with you in your fit to answer all the important factors of a good fit: Power, Bio-efficiency, Comfort, Balance, Stability, Breathability, and Nutrition on your bike.
Next we gather information from measurements of only factors we can accurately measure. Most bike fit systems use measurements that even most doctors agree cannot be measured accurately enough to be helpful in bike fitting without taking X-rays or MRI's. Through hamstring tests and hip flexors tests we will understand your end range limitations and use these measurements to keep you in your comfort zone without compromising power or bio-efficiency.
Your actual fitting starts with proper cleat placement and works up through the body ending with your fingers. We look at all critical joints and muscles along the way: foot, knee, pelvis, spine, shoulder, elbow, wrist, hand and fingers. All our measurements take into consideration your cycling goals.
Adjustments are done with your bike set-up on our Computrainer Platform together with Retul 3-D Motion Capture and Dartfish Video Motion Analysis. Dartfish allowing us to capture video, analyze still photos in your natural cycling motion nadtake accurate CAD angle measurements. At the same time we are capturing a 3-d measurement and analysis using Retul. We use this analysis from the Dartfish high quality video and the accurate measurements averaged out with the Retul software to determine accurate saddle and bar placement within your flexibility limitations. In the slow motion mode you will you will better see and understand pedaling technique necessary to produce power, biomechanical efficiency and avoid injury.
We use Retul and Dartfish in conjunction with the Computrainer Spin Scan Pedal Stroke Analysis to monitor power output for every 15 degrees of your pedal stroke. This analysis shows us left/right leg power output balance, overall pedaling efficiency, average torque angle for each leg, wattage, cadence, speed and heart rate. This is an invaluable tool in fine-tuning your fit by monitoring changes as they relate to power and efficiency. In our fit studio you will view Retul 3-D motion capture and Dartfishvideo motion simultaneously with your Computrainer Spin Scan Analysis on our dual monitor display. While using theComputrainer to simulate outdoor conditions by adjusting wattage we use Dartfish to accurately place your body in an efficient biomechanical alignment to maximize power and avoid injury. Please allow 3 hours for your fitting.
A Sunrise Tri Fit is all about YOU! Everybody has different goals (i.e. first time sprint triathlete, first century ride or first ironman) and physical limitations. We will work with you on a personal basis to make your cycling experience comfortable and efficient.
