Trek Precision Fit Philosophy

Bike Fit - Anatomical analysis (Large) Anatomical analysis This part of the equation is all about determining what unique properties of your physique and range of motion are impacting ride quality. Our Precision Fit Technician will focus on putting you in a position where you can create the most force on the pedals, and maintain that force for the longest possible time.
Bike Fit - Individualised Focus (Large) Individualised focus Individualised focus means engaging in dialogue about your goals, what’s holding you back and how you would like to see your riding or ride quality improve. Precision Fit is all about getting the right set-up for you and only you, and that begins with the right questions.
Bike Fit Critical Thinking (Large) Critical Thinking Precision Fit is evidence-based, but data is analysed on a case-by-case basis that is guided by the customer’s focus. We have amazing technology to compile data on every element affecting comfort and performance, but at the end of the day this data is only as good as the technician who has the critical thinking skills to apply it to your situation.

The Precision Fit Process

Precision Fit couples a personal understanding of your relationship with cycling and your bicycle with advanced sport science technologies and quantitative analysis. Precision Fit considers both preference and performance, making it applicable to anyone who is hoping to get more enjoyment out of their bicycle.

Bike Fit - Interview (Large) Interview During the interview, the Precision Fit technician will get an idea of who you are as a rider, and who you want to be. The interview considers physical fitness, the type of riding you primarily do or want to do, and any current or past injuries you might have. We’ll ask about where you experience discomfort on the bike. Our technicians are first trained to listen, and this is where the process is tailored to you.
Bike Fit - Off-bike assessment (Large) Off-bike Assessment The off-bike assessment is an exhaustive series of measurements and tests that determine proper sizing in addition to providing a baseline measure of strength and flexibility. The technician will evaluate alignment and size of critical body parts, and take an assessment of your posture. You will perform basic strength exercises and flexibility tests to see what type of set up your body can actually handle. This accurate sense of where you are physically will guide the technician as you move onto the bike.
Bike Fit - On-Bike Assessment (Large) On-bike Assessment With a thorough understanding of your background, goals and physiology, it is now time to step onto the bike. The on-bike assessment works from the ground up, evaluating proper positioning of the saddle for optimal knee bend. The technician will set up your cleats, ensuring that you are centred over the pedal and getting maximum power output with each stroke. They will evaluate your posture and adjust handlebar length and position to give you a neutral spine, the most comfortable and efficient position to sit on the bike.
