As a Scott stockist we have been asking about bike fit for a while now. Just as we were looking down other avenues Scott teamed up with Radlabor.
Scott Sports notes that bike fitting and individual custom fitting are becoming more and more popular worldwide. In response to this trend, Scotth has partnered up with Radlabor, a renowned institution worldwide offering scientific know-how for bike fitting programs.
Radlabor is based in Germany and has subsidiaries in Freiburg, Frankfurt and Munich. With its background at the Freiburg Sports University, the biomechanic experts have carved a reputation for expertise thanks to the use of high quality 2D laser based scanning software and a seating position program.
Radlabor’s expertise implements both seating analysis and training expertise as well as a valuable pedal force measurement system that various scientific institutes use worldwide. The company is not only commissioned by the German Cycling Federation to accompany the country’s national teams, it also has a history in advising and measuring world champions and Olympic gold medallists such as Cadel Evans, Sabine Spitz and José Hermida.
“Our goal and our approach is to find the perfect seating position for bikers,” said Dr Björn Stapelfeldt, founder of Radlabor. “The BikeScanner, our patented laser based system, is a neutral analytic program. It measures all individual body data with an outstanding exactness of a 0.1 mm resolution. It defines the perfect bike geometry plus all adjustments needed for an optimized and utmost efficient position on the bike.”
Stapelfeldt added, “Our Bike Scanner guarantees a maximum of scientific data acquisition. But the perfect seating position can only be realized by implementing individual needs and riding styles.”
