SPECIALIZED BODY GEOMETRY FIT
BG FIT (Body Geometry Fit Integration Technology) is a comprehensive & methodical fit philosophy developed by the Boulder Centre for Sports Medicine and Specialized Bicycles to help cyclists ride faster, longer and in greater comfort, while reducing the chance for injury.
BG FIT PROCESS
1. Pre-Fit Interview
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.
2. Flexibility Assignment
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.
3. Side View
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.
4. Front View
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.
5. Follow Up
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.
