Many riders have struggled with finding the right fit, riding through neck pain and tingling fingers assuming that was part of the package for an everyday ride. But there is a cure for this, and riding with comfort, efficiency and performance are all possible… with the right fit. The Specialized BG FIT system (Body Geometry Fit Integration Technology) is a holistic and comprehensive approach created to help cyclists ride faster, longer and in greater comfort. Sound too good to be true?
Just ask the Saxo Bank professional cycling team, supporters and users of the technology, or Mark Cavendish, a 20-time Tour de France stage winner (sixth most all time) who uses the system to dial in his fit, which requires efficiency and perfection.
Led by Dr. Andy Pruitt of the Boulder Center for Sports Medicine, the BG FIT methods comprise a bio-mechanical assessment, on-bike analysis and modification of equipment and position to arrive at what they feel is the best possible balance. Focusing on saddle position, stance width and handlebar height, the technicians will collect data and make adjustments — large and finite — until the results are just right. Tingling fingers and neck pain are a thing of the past!
