Basic Bike Fitting

basic postural study

Price: 75.- CHF


Ideal for:

  • Beginner or advanced athletes

principle of the study:

Whatever your level, a postural study can help you understand how to adopt a good posture to fully enjoy your bike. The Basic Postural Study will allow us to better understand your profile as an athlete, after which we perform a static analysis with a 3D body scan to deduce your anthropological  measurements. At the end of the session, you will be able to use the measurements obtained to make the necessary adjustments to your bike.

At Bike1, we use IdMatch technology, an innovative high-precision system that does not use a marker to detect the junctions of your joints. This limits the risk of human error in their manual placement. Each cyclist is unique with specific goals, which is why we offer different services to better meet your needs. Check out our Essential Bike Fit and Full Bike Fit services, for more in-depth studies that will help you improve your performance.

Process of the session:

  • Static analysis with 3D Body Scan: We perform a physical assessment of your body by detecting the junctions of your joints to determine the anthropometric and biomechanical measurements of your body, to better study your flexibility, stability and reflexes (a pelvic rotation analysis included).
  • Tuning your bike: We will give you the measurement report so that you can make the adjustments yourself. We can also make these adjustments for you at an additional cost of 20.- CHF.

postural study with idmatch

Idmatch is a high-precision anthropometric and biomechanical analysis system developed by Ergoview Selle Italia, equipped with a 3D camera and a computer-controlled electronic simulator. The process of the postural study is completely optimized because the Idmatch system works as “a simple action reader that repeats itself independently of the person pedaling”. IdMatch sets the dimensions of your bike are  defined in three steps:

  • STEP 1: the software allows you to insert essential information about your athlete profile (typology, level, accidents, physical disorders.. etc). This innovative system is based on both your anthropometric measurements and your physical condition, to suggest a first position.
  • STEP 2: It then detects the junction points of the joints without using a marker, thus excluding any risk of human error in their positioning.
  • STEP 3: IdMatch’s analysis system is very complete for it: it suggests an initial position, then detects the response of the cyclist’s body by performing a 3D scan to analyze the results. The software records and measures in real time the reactions of the cyclist on the bike, then communicates with the simulator to set the new suggested position for the cyclist on the bike.

In case of a negative answer, the software remains very reactive, bypassing the obstacle, and suggesting new modifications. Once the optimal position is determined, we can make changes to the variable elements – frame, handlebars, crank of the crankset – whose placement depends on the position of the handlebars and the saddle.
