The right saddle can improve cycling comfort and performance, and we use the most advanced technology to ensure that you get the optimum position.
Saddle Fitting with Pressure Mapping
Saddle Pressure Mapping is the latest tool in the arsenal of Cyclefit’s highly-trained cycling analysts to help determine your optimum riding position, saddle selection, and shoe / cleat setup.
We have integrated the GebioMized system into the Cyclefit fitting process, enabling us to accurately measure pressure and better visualise the rider’s contact with the saddle. Combined with our cycling analyst’s knowledge of anatomy, physiology and bio-mechanics, Pressure Mapping provides objective feedback, enabling us to make small, precise adjustments and interventions to optimise your connection with the bike and making it an all-round more enjoyable ride.
Please bring your bike if you have not already had a bike fit with us.
Improve cycling comfort
Reduce saddle discomfort
Many riders struggle with saddle discomfort, often caused by areas of high pressure as a result of incorrect saddle choice or positioning. Pressure mapping takes the guesswork out of saddle choice, allowing us to accurately measure how pressure is distributed on the saddle to objectively determine which saddle and position will result in the most significant increases in comfort and performance. Moving the saddle just 5mm can result in significant improvements.
Eliminate numbness in saddle area
Numbness affects many cyclists and is often a result of poor saddle choice and position. Our Cyclefit analysts use their anatomical knowledge, combined with pressure mapping technology, to choose a saddle, position and advise on a posture which will unload sensitive nerve tissue. This can significantly alleviate and even eliminate numbness issues when riding.
Improve cycling performance
Choose the most appropriate saddle
Most riders would like to improve their cycling performance. Choosing the appropriate saddle can improve comfort, stability, economy and alignment. Pressure mapping provides objective feedback about where and how the rider sits, aiding our cycling analysts as they choose a saddle which matches your riding style and encourages good posture, thereby improving muscle activation and economy.
We have saddles from Bontrager, Specialized, Fizik, Selle Italia, Fabric and ISM-Adamo saddles in our studios.
Position saddle for optimal comfort
The potential of many excellent saddles is ruined by poor positioning. As little as two degrees of movement can modify the contact area to provide more comfort and support where it is needed. Pressure mapping allows our fitters to make precise adjustments and record their results in order to optimise the riders posture and performance.
It's not just the saddle position
Saddle comfort can be affected by incorrect bike set-up, badly fitting shoes and pedalling technique. if you haven't had a thorough bike fit we would recommend a full assessment to eliminate any issues and improve your riding experience.
