Gebiomized Saddle Pressure Mapping in Manchester & Cheshire

We are always on the search for the latest technology to improve our bike fitting services. So that’s why we decided to invest in the Gebiomized saddle pressure technology. Gebiomized are industry experts in pressure mapping devices for cycling analysis.

You might be thinking how this tool helps with finding the right saddle? The Gebiomized pressure mat sits on top of the saddle & connects to their software to provide real-time pressure readings.

Being able to instantly see the pressure you are putting through a saddle is a game changer when optimising your bike fit. It also takes away all the guesswork with selecting appropriate saddles to test. The pressure mat can quickly identify areas of higher pressure that might correlate to saddle discomfort you are currently experiencing. This could be saddle sores or high amounts of soft tissue pressure. The pressure mat also allows us to measure your sit bone diameter which helps to select an appropriate saddle width.

Small adjustments in your bike fit or saddle set up can often lead to big changes in saddle pressure. Having a tool that can provide instant analysis helps direct positional changes. The pressure mat can track those changes throughout a session, providing clarity in certain areas of your bike fit such as saddle height, reach & saddle set up. The tool can also analyse pelvic stability which is an important consideration for power production.

Of course, a tool is only as good as the person using it. Matt was one of the first bike fitters in the U.K. to use Gebiomized saddle pressure mapping technology with Cyclefit. The data we can collect with a saddle pressure mat is unparalleled, but rider feedback is still at the core of what we do. It’s a balance between the two that produces the results.
