3D Dynamic Bike Fit using Retul
RETUL is a bike fit system that is used by world’s elite. Athletes like Lance Armstrong, Team Sky and Craig Alexander have incorporated RETUL to gain an advantage. RETUL is the most advanced bicycle fitting system available today. The system incorporates an amazingly precise three-dimensional motion capture technology, immediate report capability, and millimeter-specific digitizing tool to provide the most accurate dynamic fitting solution in the industry.
“The improvement gained in position will allow the rider to maximize efficiency and performance while avoiding discomfort or injury. Best thing of all is that this technology isn’t limited to elite athletes only, everyone can leverage this for their own benefit where the same advantage can be gained,” states Aaron Lean, Founder at MSS
The system uses infra-red LEDs (light emitting diodes) that get placed on the body in specific skeletal locations. Active systems differ from passive systems in that the tripod mounted LED sensor is tracking the light directly from the source (the LED diodes).
The active system flashes each LED discreetly as the infrared light travels from the LEDs on the body points to the sensor on the tripod. The sensor then triangulates the position of the LED in true 3D space. Our system can track these points to within a millimeter of true position. Data collation is immediate and fast.
