Bike Performance Fit

‘Quantifying marginal gains’ Using the Apex bike fitting systembike performance fit

The Bike Performance Fit or Apex Bike fit system comprises of the bike fit and functional movement screening. This system is the most advanced, revolutionary bike fitting and cycle coaching system in the world.  The Apex Bike Fit is the only bike fitting system on the market to quantify why one bike riders position is better or more efficient than another, as well as considering the rider’s neurological and biochemical function.

Designed, engineered and hand built in the UK, the APEX Bike is a true feat of engineering.

Ramp Test:

Sitting on the Apex, pedalling, a set cadence resistance is gradually increased to establish maximum effort.  It is important to establish your max. heart rate and improve threshold training.  Cost: £60 or £40 bolt on to custom fit.

 

Hi Simon

You asked for some feedback after the bike fitting that you did for me a couple of weeks ago. I am delighted with the improvement! Last week I cycled a 30km circuit that I do quite regularly over 2 minutes quicker than my previous best time and I wasn’t going flat out. I also did a 3 hour ride in the Surrey Hills yesterday and felt comfortable all the way round. And the stiffness/muscle cramp in my right shoulder is much better – probably a result of an improved riding position. So thank you very much.
