What is a Body Geometry Bike Fit?
Body Geometry Fit was designed by Specialized and is offered by authorised and trained specialists in bike stores throughout the world. It is a unique rider positioning measurement system designed to specifically help cyclists ride faster and longer with more comfort. A Body Geometry bike Fit session looks at your body measurements and position in relation to your bike so that you and your bike work together, increasing the enjoyment factor of cycling as much as possible while reducing the chance of injury.
Who can benefit from the Body Geometry Bike Fit?
When your bike is set up correctly for you it can not only improve the comfort of your ride, but also your performance. Both of these will help you to enjoy cycling more whichever cycling discipline you choose. During your Body Geometry Fit session a specialist Body Geometry bike fitter will fit your bike to your body rather than trying to fit your body to your bike helping enhance your performance and comfort on your road bike or mountain bike while also reducing the chance of injury.
First time or beginner riders
First time or beginner riders can benefit from the Body Geometry Bike Fit to make sure that their bike is set up correctly for them, helping to prevent any unnecessary niggly aches and pains that can be particularly common for new riders. With the correct fit, your body and your bike will work together and your enjoyment factor will increase no end. We hope that with a correct fitting bike all new riders will become as passionate about biking as we are at Outside Sports.
Intermediate and Social riders
If you ride regularly or as a social activity you can help to reduce the risk of injury and any niggly aches and pains during your ride with a Body Geometry Bike Fit session. During the session your bike will be fitted to your body to ensure that your riding is all about enjoying being on your bike and not about sore arms, legs, knees or shoulders. Everyone is a different shape, has different measurements and level of flexibility. With these subtle difference each rider will have a slightly different neutral position that is correct for them. Our Body Geometry bike fit specialists will help you to find the correct neutral position for you. By matching your bike to your body it will make for a more enjoyable ride. You don't have to spend lots of money to customize your bike for you, it's often small tweaks that make the biggest difference.
