Rider Screening Assessment

We gather metrics from your full kinetic chain to develop a deeper understanding around your physiological asymmetries &/or limitations which may affect your bike fit. Range of movement data helps us identify what ranges you can work within on the bike.

Dartfish ProSuite Video Capture

We record footage of you cycling in 60fps which allows us to instantly analyse your bike position from multiple angles. At the end of your fitting you will receive images from the ProSuite software showing how your fit has evolved throughout the session. We will talk you through the footage, explaining what each of the key positions mean & what changes need to be made to optimise your fit.

Foot Control & Cleat Assessment

When we ride all the power we produce goes directly through our feet so improving foot control can make a huge difference to your riding. During the on-the-bike assessment we invest time dialling in your cleat position, using external & internal wedging if your feet need specific support.

⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐
I’ve had two fits with Matt now on different bikes. I used to suffer from cramp on long rides but can now ride 100+ miles in complete comfort. Thanks again Matt.
Arame Tall
⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐
I’ve had my first ever bike fit with Matt, four months after starting cycling. I went in quite sceptical as I was unsure what to expect, however, I can’t begin to thank every second that Matt shared with me.

⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐
Matt has been integral to my career on the road in the last few years through finding me the perfect bike fit, minimising both injury and drag.
Isaac Peatfield
⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐
One session with Matt was all that was needed to eliminate knee pain that had been a recurring injury for a number of years. I am now riding pain free and feel much more powerful and comfortable on the bike just days after the fit.
Mark Hall
⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐
Highly recommend you go and visit Matt if you want a professional bike fit that will make a real difference to your riding!
Matthew Mardle
⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐
I had a fit with Matt recently and had issues with my feet that were going numb and becoming painful after just an hour. Thanks to the great work that Matt did for me the problem has gone, even on long and hot rides of more than 3.5hrs
Matt Holmes
Lotto Soudal
⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐
Matt gave me a bike fit before my first training camp with Lotto Soudal. I had to change bike, handle bars, saddle, pedals, levers, shoes all at once and I still managed to stay injury free!
Alex Dobrowski
⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐
I had knee pain in both knees before going to Matt. I thought that I would have the pain forever but Matt found the solution to completely remove the niggles. Also, my power when riding drastically increased in a matter of days after the fit. Definitely recommended.
