To get the best riding experience on any terrain, you need to find your unique active riding position, which helps you climb faster, descend with confidence, and ride with less fatigue. A trained Body Geometry Specialist, who has a complete understanding of your unique biomechanics and experience, helps you find your ideal active riding position. Body Geometry is the most complete system to help you become one with your bike.
To understand you and how you ride, a Body Geometry Fit specialist asks about your goals and measures your physical strengths and capabilities. Next, they adjust the bike to you and recommend solutions to improve comfort and enjoyment, while boosting performance by an average of 5%.
The Body Geometry fit method was developed in a joint venture between Dr. Andy Pruitt, Director of the Boulder Center for Sports Medicine, and Specialized because we felt it was the biggest opportunity to improve the riding experience for any level of cyclist. This process is scientifically proven to improve knee tracking, reduce injury, and increase power, and is the same method that is used with top professional riders in all cycling disciplines. Body Geometry starts with a rider profile interview followed by a 20-step physical assessment and then a 15-step on the bike equipment adjustment. Afterward, your Body Geometry specialist will provide you with thorough documentation and schedule a follow-up session to ensure your satisfaction with your final position.
Here are some specifics on what sets our Body Geometry Fittings apart (watch the video!):

Our experts are technical and precise when it comes to fitting to ensure a comfortable and safe ride.
Pre-fit interview: Every fit, whether it's for a novice or experienced cyclist starts with a brief interview with our trained technician that addresses your needs, goals and injury history.
Flexibility assessment: This evaluation provides an accurate picture of your flexibility and other physical attributes, including assessment of foot structure, knee position, spinal curve, shoulder extension, hip flexion and leg length, among others.
Side view: This is a riding-position assessment using your side view on the bike. The goal is to find the correct neutral position that's both efficient and comfortable by adjusting the seat, handlebars, stem and cleats.
Front view: Analysis from a front view to optimize hip, knee and foot alignment for optimum efficiency and balanced power delivery. This includes analysis of the pedal and shoe placement and how squarely you sit on the seat.
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 you may have.
