Retül 3-D Motion Capture Technology

Retül allows our expert fitters to measure and track a riders' position and movements in 3D, in real time, to the millimeter. This instant feed back and laboratory precision gives our fitters the ability to apply their expertise and experience at a level otherwise impossible. We are rapidly approaching 100 Retül fittings and have been able to quantify deviations in lateral knee and hip movement and reduce these numbers to improve rider efficiency.

Using 8 LED markers strategically placed on the wrist, elbow, shoulder, hip, knee, ankle and ball of the foot, the Retül sensor gathers information in real time and transmits it to the PC.

Retül uses 3-dimensional views to see just these precise mechanics to be able to see knee extension (from side view) in relation to knee wobble (from front view) in order to make the best decisions on adjustments to the cyclist.

The Serotta Personal Fit System

A Serotta Personal Fit is just that -- personal.
We don't just ask you to fill out a questionnaire or take standard measurements. We plan to invest an hour or more of our time learning all we can about you as a cyclist before we even think about designing your perfectly fit bicycle.
  1. We conduct an interview to learn about your riding style, your experiences, and your goals.
  2. Your flexibility and core strength are assessed to determine your range of motion and ability to comfortably hold a position.
  3. We find the position where your pedal stroke is most effective and your body relaxed by observing your good and bad postural habits, your pedal stroke, and see how relaxed you are.
  4. Your fit is finely adjusted until we find the position where power, endurance, comfort and aerodynamics are optimized.

F.I.S.T (Fit Institute Slowtwitch)

A triathlon bike is designed with one purpose in mind: Efficiency. In this 90 minute session, a F.I.S.T Certified Technician will discuss your history, goals, areas of concerns, and desired outcomes. Your bio mechanics, flexibility, core strength, and range of motion are then assessed. Your position will be optimized according to F.I.S.T protocol.
