Vorteq Sports has introduced a trio of new bike fitting packages to its Human Performance range.
The services, available from October 2022, are based at Vorteq’s HQ in Silverstone, utilising the new Human Performance Lab at Silverstone Sports Engineering Hub.
Suitable for any cyclist, the company said it developed its services from evidence and experience, reflecting the process of bike fitting and the recursive nature of position optimisation.
Serving as a precursor to its existing packages, the ‘Prologue: Pre-purchase Fit, ‘Étape1: First Fit’, ‘Étape 2: Performance Fit’, are developed to achieve distinct goals, from supporting pre-purchase size selection to informing wind tunnel testing and aerodynamic analysis.
Independent in themselves, they are symbiotic when applied in sequence, reducing the risk of injury
and optimising performance, said Vorteq.
Each package is physiotherapy led and bespoke to the rider, utilising a combination of technology, techniques, and expertise. Following an initial consultation, an informed and comprehensive biomechanical assessment will be conducted to determine fit and functional parameters. This directly informs positional exploration based on the goals of the rider and session.
