Our bike fit specialist Elissa Whittington Adv.Dip.App.Sci (Myotherapy) RMIT has more than 18 years of experience fitting all levels of cyclists.
As a trained myotherapist, she utilises her expertise in human function to dial in your optimum ride.
*Whether opting for a Standard Fitting or a Comprehensive Fitting, riders being fitted should bring their riding kit with them to the fitting – including shoes, riding attire and bike.
Standard Fitting, HK$1,500
Lasting about 90 minutes, the Standard Fitting covers the essentials of seat height, fore-aft saddle positioning, as well as stem and handlebar adjustments. In addition to cockpit corrections, posture education and basic pedalling techniques are included.
Comprehensive Fitting, HK$2,800
Extensive, intensive and thorough, the Comprehensive Fitting takes about 3 hours on average, of which 1 hour is spent on musculoskeletal function alone.
A Comprehensive Fitting includes everything in the Standard Fitting, plus:
· RIDING ASSESSMENT: While cycling on a turbo trainer, we assess the way you ride. We evaluate your flexibility, strengths and weaknesses, from which we make adjustments to your ride position.
· FUNCTION ASSESSMENT: Function is the key to good, non-injurious riding and also maximises handling and control of the bike. Following on from the riding assessment, we find a physiologically ‘safe’ position for all the body's joints, helping to reduce load and optimise your breathing.
· HISTORICAL ASSESSMENT: In addition, we take into account your full riding history, including current and past injuries. We identify your goals and targets and make recommendations to aid you in achieving your ambitions.
A full report detailing the fitter's findings will be issued to you following a Comprehensive Fitting.
