RETÜL Bike Fit System
At PROmotion Physio, Graeme, our cycling PRO, is a RETÜL trained bike fitter. RETÜL is a bike fit system utilised by the best pro cycling teams in the world including, Team Sky (winners of 3 of the last 4 Tour de France races), Garmin-Sharp and Team Europecar. Graeme combines this bike fit system with video analysis, a detailed physiotherapy musculo-skeletal screen and over 20 years of cycling experience to ensure you get your best possible position on your bike.
Cycling has sky-rocketed in the past decade with now over 3.7 million or 19% of people regularly cycling in Australia. In WA this is even higher!
Given our sunny weather and pretty good (could still get a bit better) cycling paths, its not surprising that so many of us are getting on the bike to commute and exercise. In WA over 23% of people aged 14+ are riding their bikes regularly with men aged 35-49, followed by 50-64 year olds having the biggest participation rates across all demographics.
Reasons to Bike Fit...
Cycling's rise is not surprising as it is low impact, social, fun and you can put in a really great cardio session on the way to work all without the injuries that can happen with running. But thats not to say the bike can't cause injury...
Do you suffer from lower back pain, hamstring tightness or numbness in your hands after a ride? Or would you just like to be in the best possible position on your road bike or time trial bike? PROmotion Physio Bike Fit service can help.
Types of Bikes We Fit
Whether you're riding a road bike, time trial bike, commuter or mountain bike we have the tools and system in place to ensure that you are in the most efficient position. This will allow you to maximise your comfort and performance and above all improve the way you move on the bike.
While the guys have the biggest participation levels there has also been a large increase in the number of women cycling, which can bring up challenges for a bike fit. While it would be great if you have a womens specific frame, often it is the case of being a smaller male geometry frame. At PROmotion Physio we understand the differences and difficulties this can cause and ensure no matter which frame type you have as a female cyclist, our physio bike fit will get you into the best possible position.
