Your Body. Your Bike. Your Fit.

OUR APPROACH TO YOUR BIKE FIT IS A HOLISTIC CONSIDERATION OF ALL THE VARIABLES.

At our Science to Sport laboratories in Cape Town, South Africa and Girona, Spain – our approach to your bike fit is a holistic consideration of all the variables. Individual measurements, history and training load are combined with technologies such as our bespoke ErgoFiT parameters, Gebiomized saddle pressure mapping and customised STT 3D Kinematic software.

 

This biomechanical methodology considers your body, your bike and your training for your optimal fit for both comfort and performance.

Basic Fit

In our Basic Fit, your individual measurements are taken after a simple interview. This information will be used to create an accurate set of predicted bicycle measurements using our proprietary ErgoFiT software. Your fit will be assessed with the 6-point ErgoFiT optimisation process, with you on the bike.

Professional Fit

Using the same fit procedure as the Advanced ErgoFiT, the Professional ErgoFit further optimisation of all parameters, with full body 3D kinematics, using our exclusive personalised STT technology to assess joint angles, stability and overall position.

 

 

 

 

Advanced Fit

The Advanced Fit is an extension of the Basic Fit, but includes additional assessment such as correcting leg length discrepancy, foot alignment and cleat positioning.  2D Kinematics (to measure stability) and saddle pressure mapping to assess a range of fundamental values, changes and movement patterns are incorporated

Medical Fit

These consultations are only performed by Professor Swart and Dr David De Klerk. The fit includes an assessment of the injury and unique intrinsic factors that may have contributed to the injury as well as prescribed exercises and stretching required.  Using principles incorporated in the Professional Fit,  your bike fit is comprehensively evaluated.  A portion of this consultation can be claimed from medical aid.

YOUR BODY, YOUR BIKE, YOUR FIT

We’ve helped a range of clients find this optimal fit – this is what some of them have to say.

JoAnne Lynne - Road and Gravel Adventure Cyclist
Originally from Malibu, I moved to Spain to enjoy my Jubilada - a lifelong dream. I landed in Girona which has allowed me the opportunity to enjoy my retirement, exploring the region on my bicycle. This past year, I chose to have a custom gravel bike made, but custom doesn't necessarily mean it fits correctly. After experiencing some neck and shoulder issues I sought the advice of Science to Sport. They listened to my concerns and explained why I might be having these certain issues. We made some changes and double checked them. I can say that the changes made were sport on. I have been able to continue gravel riding, with great intensity, pain free.

After battling with constant pain on one side and in my lower back when riding and racing from a previous bike fit, I went for a bike fit and equipment check with Reece from Science to Sport After what I thought was a fairly radical change in set up, I trusted his advice and insight and I have since had years of comfort, pain free riding and racing with improved power output! The ErgoFiT bike set up was a game changer for me and have since recommended Reece to all of my friends.

After getting a new bike, I contacted Science to Sport for a fit. Having experienced some discomfort on longer rides, the saddle pressure mapping software was super impressive. It was good to see what saddle works - and what tweaking the saddle height does. This, combined with the advice of narrower bars has made for a comfortable ride, with a slight power increase too.

I have had bike fits on both my mountain and road bikes at Science to Sport, where they are incredibly professional, knowledgeable and efficient. The fact that the fit is totally objective based on data and proven science provides a very high level of confidence in the process. It also ensures maximum comfort on the bike and minimised injuries. When you get a new bike, a bike fit at Science to Sport is the first thing you should do!
Jesús Labena - Road Cyclist
Nothing felt right after changing my shoes so I arranged a bike fit, expecting a few small adjustments to ease the aches and pains I had started to experience on longer rides. I was impressed with the technology used to check my position, but the experience and knowledge of the staff to know the technology and understand how to correct my position was more impressive. The changes we made were really big – and the service during the fit and in the following weeks while I was adapting to the changes was brilliant. Having this professional bike fit is the best investment I have made in my cycling. Not only do I feel better on the bike, but the change in my pedal stroke and dynamics has improved my riding.
Ronney Macarthur
As a 51 year old recreational mountain biking woman, with only 3 years’ experience, I was advised by my skills coach (Amy McDougall) to book an appointment with Reece McDonald at SSISA for a bike fit. What could have been a very intimidating experience, turned out to be very informative and maybe a bit too “technical” for me, but Reece made me feel very comfortable, answered all my questions and I left the appointment knowing I was setup correctly on my bike and that I could trust my bike to get me safely down the trails.
