Below we have outlined the methods we can use to help you achieve your best. Contact us to discuss your specific requirements or request a call back.
Precision bike fit £210.00
This is our most in-depth bike fitting service. Suited to riders doing more than 5 hours per week and recommended to help with significant or multiple riding discomforts, medically diagnosed or chronic injuries. It is also ideal for performance and endurance athletes and for positional fine-tuning. A session includes a thorough interview, structural and muscular assessment and exercise screening. We'll utilise the latest analysis technology to accurately assess your current riding position and evaluate changes throughout the session. Cleat and shoe adjustment is included.
Classic bike fit £120.00
Our classic bike fit is conducted largely by eye using our experience and some technology. Best suited for riders doing less than 5 hours per week and recommended to help with mild discomfort in one area of their riding. A session includes an interview, posture and flexibility assessment. We then closely observe you riding on a turbo trainer at varying effort levels to identify areas of adjustment required to improve the overall comfort and efficiency of your riding position. Cleat and shoe adjustment is included.
New Bike Advisory £210.00
Looking to treat yourself to a new machine? We're here to help you choose the very best bike for you! During an initial 2 hour appointment we will carry out a Classic Bike Fit on your current bike (or our studio bike upon request) to ensure you are in your optimum riding position. We then spend 30 minutes going through your shortlist of potential bikes, highlighting which will best suit your physiology and riding needs. (Additional bike choices may require extra consultation time).
This booking includes a second, 1 hour appointment to dial in the new bike.
Aero Bike Fit £330.00
A rider creates up to 80% of the total drag, so this is where we can help to make you as fast as possible. Ideal for Time Triallists, Road Racers and Triathletes
We'll address concerns and discomforts as well as using a virtual wind tunnel to measure CdA (drag) in real-time, combined with power data we can calculate speed and time on the road.
We work through various changes in position to increase speed, improve comfort and save you energy. This session includes a thorough interview, structural and muscular assessment, exercise screening and cleat and shoe adjustment.
Happy with your comfort and power and just interested in getting more slippery? This standalone session focuses purely on making you as aerodynamically efficient as possible at your determined goal utilising our VelogicFit 3D Aero system.
Only Aero £150.00
Muscle Activation Analysis
£50.00 added to a Bike Fit or Aero Testing.
Wearable tech, measuring the electrical activity of the muscles using electromyography (EMG).
This gives us the insight into exactly how you're using your main leg muscles throughout the pedal stroke, and how this is affected by riding position.
Identifing which muscles are over active or underactive, left and right imbalances as well as hamstring or quadricep dominance to improve your workload distribution, reduce strain to individual areas and reduce the required muscle activity for the same power output, making you more efficient.
Also a great running analysis for triathletes and duathletes.
Available in small, medium and large size shorts, catering for riders 55 - 90kg, waist size 27 - 37inch.
Why consider a Screening?
Prehab: To ensure you are ready to train effectively, maintain proper exercise function and avoid injuries caused by poor movement repetition. If you're taking up a new sport, or significantly increasing your training, a screening would be a great first step.
Rehab: To aid the recovery process involved in returning to sport from an injury. By understanding any limitations caused by the injury, as well as compensations your body may have made, helping you to return to full fitness and reduce your chances of reinjury.
Performance: Gain insight into your athletic function and identify areas of weakness or imbalance to make improvements in your performance in your chosen sport and to gain and find that edge over your competitors.
Well-being: Postural dysfunction caused by repetitive stresses such as work and home life can lead to everyday discomfort and pain. By highlighting potential issues early, you can make plans to remain healthy and pain free.
The report can also be shared with your Physio/Osteopath/Chiro/Personal Trainer etc.
Your results can be replayed and compared instantly and makes for incredibly consistent and repeatable assessment, even over separate visits.
Sports Massage £45.00 for 1hr.
A professional massage is a great way to relieve muscle tension and aid soft tissue repair. It is also an effective method of reducing pain associated with tightness and improving joint mobility. Massage treatments can greatly compliment our bike fit services; targeted massage therapy can speed up the adaptation to your new riding position, improve posture and and help to restore soft tissue function. We are fully qualified in sports massage and soft tissue therapy and are happy to discuss the best treatment for you.
INTRO Fit for Fit - £40 - 40mins
Everyone benefits from a bike fit, but you’re not everyone! We start off by understanding where you’re at with your cycling and how we can help you the most. It doesn’t matter if you’re an Olympic competitor, a complete novice or a seasoned rider who’s suffered an injury, we have the experience and skills to help you advance with greater enjoyment, comfort and performance.
We’ve developed a concise but highly effective way of finding out exactly where you are and how you could develop. You may want to shave seconds off a PB or simply getting back on a bike after months of injury. We’ll get a clear picture of your goals, needs and desires.
On bike assessment
Seeing your current setup, starting posture and basic performance will help us determine all the ways we can assist you. Our unique system of Bike, Body and Mind adjustments means we can start to design a personalised programme to help you achieve your goals.
One page personal action report
After your INTRO session we’ll print out a simple one page personalised action report detailing the areas we would recommend you focus on, and the onward services we provide that will help you succeed in your goals.
DOES THIS SOUND LIKE YOU?
I THINK I KNOW WHAT I NEED
Even if you feel certain you need to make essential mechanical changes or improvements to your bike, we recommend every client starts their Vankru journey with our powerful, personal INTRO session. Here we’ll discuss your ideas alongside our wealth of knowledge about all the ways your cycling enjoyment and performance can be improved. We never stop learning and we can save you lots of time, money and possible injury woes.
I WANT TO BUY A NEW BIKE
A new bike could transform your enjoyment and performance, but how to decide which bike is exactly right for you? All too often we find customers drawn to bike choices that aren’t their best option. We can analyse the exact specifications that would suit you ideally, potentially saving you money, reducing stress and avoiding the realisation that your shiny new bike isn’t helping. Again, we would recommend you start with our potent INTRO session followed by a short bike selection consultation where we take you through your best options.
I’LL GET IN TOUCH WHEN MY KNEE’S BETTER
For us, bike and body is one complete system and we specialise in understanding how injuries occur and how they are best remedied. As well as making clever bike adjustments to alleviate pain we offer injury screening, reconditioning programs and massage therapy. Should we indentify you need additional help, we'll refer you to the medical practitioners best placed to get you back in the saddle and back to your best. Don’t wait until a niggle becomes a chronic pain. Speak to us early.
