Using the Giant PowerFit system for increased performance and efficiency
At Race Hub we have been using the Giant PowerFit system since we opened our doors.
This has been developed by Giant and Wattbike in association with leading sports scientists- PowerFit is the only bike fit system that focuses specifically on improving your power output and balance through correct fit for increased performance and efficiency.
PowerFit is based on biomechanic principles but differs from other fits as it delivers tangible, objective results proven through Wattbike pedalling force and efficiency analysis.
PowerFit sessions consider your cycling discipline, injury history, pain during cycling and performance goals to deliver an optimized position which can then be transferred to other bikes.
The practical session lasts approximately 1.5-2 hours and includes assessment of your current pedaling technique and force using the Wattbikes. We will then take measurements and alter your set up and position and perform a comparative assessment so that you can see the improvements made to help you work towards a well-balanced, smooth, strong pedal stroke to deliver optimum power and efficiency.
Once we are happy with your new set-up we will help to transfer this to your bike so that you are ready to start benefiting from your new fit straight away.
This fit works brilliantly for any bike. If you are considering buying a new bike, we can use the measurements we take to match you with your perfect Giant bike. We also offer a half price fit with any bike between £1000-£2000 and a free fit with any bike over £2000.
