A bike fitting is the art and science of successfully joining a rider and a bicycle to achieve a comfortable, efficient, powerful, and safe union of human and machine.
Why get your Bike Fitted?
When you purchase a vehicle there are so many options and choices that are available. When it comes to the modern day bicycle it’s not too much different. The one obvious difference between the two is the engine; with a car you usually get what you pay for and with a bicycle the engine power all comes from you.
Frankly, we want you to enjoy cycling as much as you possibly can. Many Cyclists have fallen head over heals in love with our sport without the benefit of properly fitted equipment or instruction we find common in other sports like golf, tennis, and skiing. Cycling involves a unique interaction of rider and equipment; the bike should feel like an extension of our body.
Because cycling is a learned skill, we may not always choose the best position, just like we might not naturally grip a golf club properly, or carve a ski turn without being taught how to do it. Coach Luke Way has the equipment and the training to help you get started the right way, or to improve upon your current fit.
Here is what Pro Mountain Biker Sonya Looney has to say about her bike fit.
All you’ll need to bring to your fitting is your bike, shoes, orthotics, favourite bike shorts, H2O bottle, & Jersey. Bring your helmet, glasses and gloves just in case we have any questions about them.
We have four distinct phases to achieve your perfect fit
1. Pre-Fit Interview
2. Dynamic Fit Unit Assessment
The GURU Fit System™ is the only true fit system available today – creating a precision-based approach to bike fit that features one consistent fit methodology paired to the ultimate fit tool (DFU™) that is outfitted with revolutionary software to deliver tailored results for all cyclists (road, mountain, cyclocross, triathlon and recreation).
3. On bike assessment
4. Fit summary, stamp of approval, and follow-up.
Coach Luke Way is the Master Bike Fitter at Kelowna Cycle. He has designed a bike fitting experience like no other. It’s a meeting of the waters of many years of experience, bio mechanical and physiologically centred bike fits with the worlds leading technology in bike fitting tools.
Luke has been certified by the Guru Bike Fit Academy to operate the Guru Dynamic Fit Unit (DFU). The DFU moves to any orientation of riding position while you are riding, delivering a truly dynamic fit. It can be zoom adjusted or refined to the millimeter.
Most fitters focus on one school or designation. Luke has completed the top level of certifications in several different schools; this coupled with our Balance Point methodology of physiologic testing, we are capable of assessing and understanding more about why a position may or may not work for an athlete. This equates to better power, ultimate comfort, and comprehensive injury prevention.
