Planet Bike Fit

PLANET CYCLES BODY GEOMETRY FIT

Be one with your bike

Developed in partnership with Dr. Andy Pruitt of the Boulder Center for Sports Medicine, Body Geometry FIT is a comprehensive fit system that creates the perfect marriage between bike and body. Through an opening interview, 20-step fit assessment, detailed equipment adjustments, and a thorough follow-up, our Body Geometry FIT technicians can adjust all riders' bikes to fit their bodies.

Shoe Technology

Developed with Dr. Andy Pruitt of the Boulder Center for Sports Medicine, Specialized shoes combined with Body Geometry high performance footbeds help athletes ride farther, faster, in greater comfort, and with reduced chance of injury.

Farther: Built-in varus angulation improves pedaling alignment for greater power and endurance. Also prevents knee pressure and strain. Faster: Built-in arch support and metatarsal button eliminate hot spots and numbness and helps maximize your power transfer with proper arch support. Comfort: Three distinct levels of arch and metatarsal support help you customize your fit.

Saddle Technology

Developed with ergonomic expert Dr. Roger Minkow M.D., our Body Geometry saddles are scientifi cally tested and ergonomically designed to reduce pressure for all-day riding comfort.

Comfort: The anatomically designed Body Geometry cut-out or groove takes pressure off arteries and soft tissue for improved blood flow and comfort. Pressure mapping research helps us determine areas of high/low pressure so we can optimize the design of each saddle. Fit: Since a properly sized saddle increases your comfort and power on the bike, Body Geometry saddles come in a range of widths to fit every rider. Efficiency: We design the shape of every saddle to complement the way you ride. Based on your position and preferences, you can find your match from a variety of flat, curved, and comfort saddles.

 

Glove Technology

Featuring BG padding and road-specific design, Body Geometry road gloves are designed to improve rider comfort, endurance, and bar control.

Fit: Our palm construction, seam placement and premium materials optimize comfort and fit. Comfort: We tune the size and location of the padding for riding position and experience. Protection: Our ergonomically shaped Body Geometry Gel padding dissipates pressure on the ulnar nerve to reduce numbness.

Athlete testimonials

Tim Clarke - I've been visiting bicycle stores all over Brisbane for many years and had some fits done in my time always trying to get the optimum riding position even having some done at Planet before now but wow the Body Geometry Fit is everything. With the professionalism displayed in this fit and the in-depth pre assessment they do it was amazing.

Bronwyn Victor did my fit and with her prior knowledge of being a qualified Radiographer it hasn't hurt the process one little bit. I was surprised at what the Body Geometry Fit had over conventional older fit techniques. This was state of the art technology at the cutting edge and I could tell that every step of the way.

Instantly my riding was smoother, faster and more comfortable than I had ever been before. I'm now able to stay with the group on those really hard rides and my climbing has improved out of site. I can't believe the difference it has made to my ride and recovery and I would not hesitate to recommend Planet Cycles, Bronwyn and the Body Geometry Fit to anyone trying to be more comfortable or faster on the bike. Thank you Planet.

Saraan Finney - After riding my new road bike for almost 12 months, despite the money I spent on it, I just wasn't feeling comfortable and I knew my position on it wasn't right. I wondered how often people were put on to incorrectly sized bikes. I had been plagued with aches and pains since purchasing and riding this particular bike and although I blamed this on 'just getting older', I did often think if the bike had something to do with it, given the rushed and very unhelpful service I received when buying it.

Going into Planet Cycles was a totally different experience. Given that cycling is a largely male dominated activity it is always hard to find cycling shops that are not also mostly male dominated. It was both surprising and very pleasing to see that Planet Cycle has a fantastic mix of both male and female staff. It was terrific to be able to talk to other female cycling 'junkies' who knew so much about the ins and outs of cycling and what worked best.

My bike fit with Bronwyn was a relaxed, friendly experience and her expertise was unbelievable! She was able to explain to me in lay mans terms about the unique biomechanics of every individual and how we all move in different ways and the importance of getting your bike fitted correctly to cater for this. She took the time to gather objective and accurate data to adjust my bike to the 'strange and unusual' ways that I use to pedal along. Among many other things, she gathered information about my hip movement, ankle flexibility and any old injuries that I had. The level of detail she required surprised me!

Since the bike fit with Bronwyn I feel 'super' comfortable and much better laid out. I am more comfortable while seated and don't need to constantly adjust my position on the seat. The new seat that was put on is proving to be a good change - I am glad I could try different ones before deciding. The new setup is definitely faster and most of the aches and pains I experienced prior are no longer an issue.

I cannot say enough good things about the mix of friendliness and expertise I experienced when getting my bike fit done at Planet

Cycles. It was First Class all the way!
