An assessment is done on you with regard to your measurements and input variables needed.
What is ErgoFiT?
It is comprehensive fitting tool which uses both predictive bike fitting and dynamic fitting for the Retailer and medical provider specializing in bike fit. After taking a series of measurements from the rider (which can be performed in as little as 15 minutes), the system will generate a comprehensive report which includes frame size and all the important fit parameters (including seat height, saddle setback, reach and drop). This is followed by a series of dynamic on the bike measurements which incorporates 5 objective and simple steps to eliminate any incorrect variables in the fit.
What makes ErgoFiT different to competing products?
There are a number of bike fitting products on the market. However, ErgoFiT is the first and only system to incorporate dynamic measurements such as flexibility and other factors such as training history and volume to predict bike fit. As a result, it is significantly more accurate than any other system available. As an example: A 20 year old elite rider vs. a 60 year old social rider with a history of lower back surgery would receive the same fitting when using competitive systems.
With ErgoFiT, the fitting values for these individuals would be dramatically different.
The incorporation of a 5 step dynamic checking process ensures that the fitting parameters are 100% correct. This process is objective, time efficient and extremely accurate.
How was ErgoFiT developed?
Using the data from thousands of scientifically performed bike fittings, statistical software was used to analyse the relationship between bike fit parameters and the characteristics of the athlete (variables) that predict these parameters.
How accurate is ErgoFiT?
The relationship between predicted and actual measurements (in scientific terms) is measured by statistical values such as correlation co-efficients and 95% confidence intervals. Using these means, we can confidently say that the setup will predict an optimal fitting for over 95% of individuals. For those that fall outside of this range, the 5 step check will correct any errors and provide the perfect fit. This scientific measurement therefore ensures that the rider is optimally fitted with respect to comfort, performance and injury prevention 100% of the time.
ErgoFiT predictive component is the first system to use dynamic measurements such as flexibility and other factors such as training history and volume to predict bike fit. As a result, ErgoFiT is significantly more accurate than any other system available.
