General Information: At Element Multisport we believe that optimizing a riders position on the bike is a harmony of, balance, power, comfort and biomechanical efficiency. Our goal is to create a comfortable, powerful and sustainable position. This in turn improves speed and efficiency.
We are fortunate to have a Retul 3D bike fitting system. Retül is the world’s most comprehensive dynamic 3D motion capture fit system. Retül is the only system that allows the fitter to measure the rider while pedaling under force. Using eight anatomical LED markers strategically placed on the wrist, elbow, shoulder, hip, knee, ankle and ball of the foot, the Retül sensor gathers information in real time. A cyclist's pedaling mechanics can change significantly when applying variable efforts to the pedals and the Retül system will pick up these differences and allow the fitter to set your position accordingly.
The Retul system is not a fitting philosophy; it is a powerful fitting tool. In the hands of a novice it would not produce results. It relies on the fitter to be educated, experienced, have an extensive understanding cycling and biomechanics. Directions: 2211 N Elston Ave #101

Map location is based off of a geocode of the addressed entered using Google's Google Maps API. If your address does not geocode properly, you can either update the address (we will attempt to re-geocode after any updates to your entry) or you can use Google's geocoding tool found here: http://gmaps-samples.googlecode.com/svn/trunk/geocoder/singlegeocode.html to obtain a lat/long for your location and enter that. To use the utility, type in an address that is close to your location and then drag-and-drop the marker to obtain the desired lat/long. If you choose to enter a lat/long, you must check the box on the edit page that says, "override geocode with entered lat/long."
