EVERY RIDER IS UNIQUE !
Having the right size bike and be well positioned on it is the key for fun rides! Road cycling or mountain bike... On road, a good position allows you to put kilometers without pain, except thighs! On the rough, it allow the rider to play with the ground instead to ''suffer'' it. So... every cyclist, from beginner to pro, should be comfortable on his bike!
Miles without pain
Increase performance with the same physical effort
Maintain or regain the pleasure of riding
Because we know that ergonomic positioning is a complex concept that goes beyond mechanic, we chose to purchase Ergomotion, a highly specialized and unique in Canada positioning system.
ErgoMotion is an innovative, novel and patented, positioning system that brings the physiological and morphological data of the cyclist to technical data. Dynamic and practical measures taken with the system can then by applied to a bike or frame. Using different equipment components, ErgoMotion goes beyond the purely mechanical positioning and becomes a complex concept to find the ideal position for the rider.
OTHERS ERGONOMIC POSITIONING SYSTEMS
Ergomotion concept outperforms existing positioning systems on several levels. On the one hand, existing systems provide an anthropometric measurements station with a partially adjustable frame. So data obtained are very partial and do not consider the cyclist morphology (asymmetry of the body, joint and muscle features) or his experience. On the other hand, measures are never recorded in real time and do not include the continuous pedaling of the cyclist. A lot of positioning systems give the impression of possessing high-level information, although they do not provide the required reliability.
ERGOMOTION SYSTEM ALLOWS :
Real-time measurement during exercise and physiological impact of changes in the dimensions of the bike, consequently, the rider's position during the pedal stroke.
To observe the cadence and determine the ease with which the rider provides the effort.
To quantify the power generated by the cyclist (in watts) and define the regularity of the push on the pedals.
To visualize heart rate evolution and determine the degree of contraction of a muscle group.
KEO FIT TEST
Keo Fit is a wedge adjustment system to accurately measure foot position and angular freedom when your pedaling. This test is used to determine the optimal position of wedges and to define the type of wedge LOOK KEO (gray, red or black) best suited to your pedaling. A well adjust wedge optimizes the efficiency of your pedaling, improve your performance and reduce the risk of injury (tendinitis).
KEO FIT TEST BENEFITS :
Calculate your exact wedge position.
Measuring amplitude of the foot angular movement.
Define the type of wedge to use (black, gray or red).
Optimize the efficiency of your pedaling.
Reduce the risk of injury.
PODIATECH, THERMOFORMED INSOLES
We are now able to produce thermoformed insoles to suit your cycling activities. In conjunction with positioning services, custom insoles increase your comfort as well as the accuracy of your pedal stroke.
Vélo REAKTIF has chosen to acquire a full range of equipments to make custom insoles and offer individualized advice.
