Bikefitting

An incorrect sitting position, an unsuitable adjusted bike or even the wrong kicking technique can quickly take the pleasure of cycling or turn a triathlon into a nightmare. Every person is different, the ideal sitting position is a very individual matter.

We are convinced that a computer program can never replace our experience but also not really respond to your individual needs. That is why you will be individually advised by our experienced bike fitters in an intensive session. For us, it’s not just about the pure sitting position. We see them only as part of the overall system. That’s why we always perform a step and posture analysis at the same time. So that you can pursue your beloved hobby more relaxed and without any discomfort. The improved sitting position and more efficient pedalmovement also make you more powerful on the bike and at the same time prevent injuries.

What our customers say

I was very successful last year Ironman in Zurich, became Agegroup winner at the 60-65J. Without the P3 I would have driven more force-consuming and would have taken longer to run as before. Your seat and handlebar setting with the step instructions were gold for me, helped me immediately to the ticket to Hawaii.

Almost two weeks ago Andy and I were with you on Saturday mornings for a seat analysis. Now that I have been on the road a few times, flat and mountainous, I can say: SUPER! Unbelievable how much safer I feel on the tri bike. I’ve been constantly focused on ‘swipe off feet, knees in, our backs round and arms bent’ and I think I was even a bit faster! So, thank you very much. More infos after the competition!

Susi

Today, I was on the bike you set up yesterday. And it wasn’t just any training, but a quick double training: 1h bike, with 10km full throttle and then jogging.

Well, René, it was perfect: the position aggressive and yet extremely confortabel, no pulling neither in the back nor behind the neck, just awesome! And I was very focused on pulling and i had very fresh legs when I switched to the bike.

Believe me René, this is not a “placebo” effect, it is in fact a completely different and absolutely satisfying feeling on the bike and then during the run. Great, thank you very much!!!!

Giuseppe

In April of this year I was with you for seat position analysis on the bike. This is now a good two months since then and during this time I have concentrated heavily on your tips during the bike training, be it aeroposition, head posture or step image. I largely got rid of my rather affectionate neck pain during long workouts!

Of course, I was curious to see how and if this would affect the 180 km of bikes at Ironman Switzerland. And behold, I was able to improve my time on the bike by 10 minutes compared to the previous year!!

I never thought that your technical tips would bring me this much and finally be so clearly reflected in the cycling time.

A BIG THANK YOU FOR YOUR COMPETENT TIPPS!
