Body Geometry Fit
Developed after years of working with Dr. Andy Pruitt Ed.D., PA of the Boulder Center for Sports Medicine and found only at your local Specialized dealer, Body Geometry F.I.T. (Fit Integration Technology) is a comprehensive fit philosophy created to help cyclists ride faster, longer and in greater comfort, while reducing the chance for injury. This process can run up to 2.5 hours and cuts no corners! This is the proper way to have a bicycle fit to your structure, keeping your body in a neutral position for comfort and performance. This process also addresses bio-mechanics to prevent injuries and improve power output.
What You Can Expect
Every fit–whether it’s for a novice or experienced cyclist–starts with a brief interview between a trained technician and rider that addresses the individual’s injury history, needs and goals.
This evaluation gains an accurate picture of the individual’s flexibility and other physical attributes, including assessment of foot structure, knee position, spinal curve, shoulder extension, hip flexion and leg length, among others.
Assessed using the side view of the rider, the goal is to deliver a correct neutral position that’s both powerful and comfortable through adjustments to seat height, handlebar height, stem length and cleat position.
Analysis from frontal view to optimize hip, knee and foot alignment for greater performance and balanced power delivery. Includes analysis of pedal and shoe placement and squareness on the saddle.
After a week or so, the technician calls to discuss the effectiveness of the adjustments and to answer any other questions or concerns the rider may have. A follow up appointment also may be needed for further adjustment, which is included in the initial charge.
