At FITT 1ST we are passionate about the sport of cycling and believe that in order to enjoy this wonderful sport to its fullest, you need to be comfortable above all else. Whether you are a weekly commuter, a dedicated charity rider, serious recreational club rider, elite or professional athlete, road or mountain, it all starts with finding the best position possible for you. Once you are comfortable, then and only then can performance be optimized.We believe that a person’s bicycle when fitted correctly should feel like an extension of their own body, the perfect union between Rider and Machine. You should feel comfortable, safe, balanced, strong and always in control.

"Tell me and I’ll forget. Show me and I’ll remember. Involve me and I’ll understand”


We at FITT 1ST want you to understand your bike fit, that's why we take the extra time to actively involve you in all aspects of the procedure. This way we establish quality communication and feedback.

Our fitting process was developed by the leaders and pioneers in this industry, taught at the SICI Institute to the TOP FITTERS IN THE WORLD. Although our system uses well established scientific criteria as its base we add a very “Rider Centric “ component to our fit procedure by establishing a thorough personalized profile of the rider themselves.

There are no “quick fixes” if a bike fit is done correctly, and that is why our fits are very comprehensive.

Whether you are a pro athlete or a daily commuter, the process remains the same and is equally important for all.

By the time your fit is complete you should not only feel totally satisfied with your new position, you will also have a much greater knowledge and better understanding of how your body and your bicycle work together. You and the bicycle become one. This is how the cycling experience is maximized.

Full FITT Procedure

Step 1: Interview

The fit begins with an extensive interview to establish a personal blueprint of the uniqueness you bring to the bike.

We will gather information about your life off the bike that relates directly to your comfort, efficiency and power on the bike. Lifestyle, fitness level, riding experience, prior injuries, surgeries and current physical concerns all play an important role in determining your ideal position.

Step 2: Foot Assessment

This is a very important aspect of the bike fit and absolutely essential for any rider who uses a clipped in pedal system. The interface between the foot, shoe, cleat and pedal is where it all begins. This is where all your power and efficiency originates.

This is also the source for the majority of foot, knee, hip and sometimes lower back issues that we encounter. Foot size and shape, degree of pronation, arch type, length and height, forefoot and posterior foot varus and valgas and metatarsal support are all evaluated here.

Step 3: Flexibility and Postural Assessment

Everyone has a unique body structure, determined by genetics, how we live our lives, and even what we do for a living. A person who sits in front of a computer all day will have a much different range of motion and flexibility than the fitness trainer, even if they were born identical twins. Chances are they would not be comfortable in the same position on the bike as well. Postural alignment, leg length differences, pelvic asymmetries, spinal flexibility, hamstring flexibility, and hip flexion range of motion, IT bands and internal hip flexors will all be assessed.

Step 4: On Bike Assessment

Everything we do on the bike is to ensure that the bike fits you. It makes more sense to change a stem, saddle position or handle bar position than to force one's body into a position that is unnatural. This process will result in a position that accommodates all of your natural bio-mechanics, removing excess pressure on all your joints.

Foot stability, cleat alignment, ankling pattern, knee tracking, pelvic angle, upper body alignment, arm and hand positions will all be optimized to ensure that you will be riding safely and comfortably for your current skill and fitness level. We will be asking for your feedback continually through this phase.

Step 5: Evaluation and Recommendations

We will do our best to adapt your existing equipment to you. However there may be changes that we will recommend to you. A new handlebar with shallower reach and drop to accommodate your arm and hand position, a different saddle that fits your body and riding style better or something as small as adding a wedge to one of your cleats. Any one of these small changes can make a world of difference in your ability to enjoy, perform well and ride safely on the bike.

If your bike is just the wrong size and or geometry for you, we will tell you so, and give you advice on what manufacturers makes, models and size would be a much better fit for you and your style of riding.

All of your data will be recorded, so that you will have a permanent record of all the key bike measurements.

Our feet are the most forgotten and neglected part of our bodies as Cyclists. We shove them into often ill-fitting cycling  shoes, fix them onto pedals and proceed to pound away.

On an average 3 hr ride we turn the pedals 16,200 times (based on a cadence of 90 rpm's) . As a consequence numbness, hot-foot, pain, cramps, instability and power-loss are all too common.

We all have very distinctive feet, consisting of 28 bones (our feet have 25% of the entire body's bones in them) and 27 muscles controlling all types of  mobility. Some of us pronate (ankles fall inward under load) and some of us supinate (ankles fall outward under load) Some of our feet get longer and wider under load and our lontitudinal and metatarsal arches collapse as a result of sprains, rolled ankles and wearing improperly fitted shoes for years... RING A BELL

Whatever is happening in our shoes,  has a massive chain-reaction all the way up our bodies. How we walk, sit, stand and therefore pedal starts with our feet. A large portion of lower back pain can be generated from the feet.

It is virtually impossible to achieve a powerful and efficient interface with the bike until the feet are stable and comfortable. Our feet are the foundation of posture, whether good or bad.

Your feet can fatigue very quickly if not supported correctly, resulting in poor pedal technique which can have big effects on your enjoyment or performance.

Triahletes take note,  A stable and comfortable cycling foot will also make you faster on your RUN

If taking your cycling shoes off at the end of a long ride, gives you the same feeling of relief that taking your downhill ski boots off after a day on the slopes does then consider footbeds


eFit Semi Customizable Footbeds by eSoles

The eFit SUPPORTIVE model is designed specifically for activities featuring rigid footwear including Cycling.

The eFit SUPPORTIVE model features neutral alignment for maximum energy transfer needed in the activities featuring enhanced stabilization through the footwear.

The Supportive arch component is covered by a specific EVA foam to provide comfort and control.

Other than Cycling, these same insoles (SUPPORTIVE model) can be transferred to your hockey or figure skates, or your downhill ski boots with the same benefits,
Oher models are available for running, golf, hiking etc.

Patented Interchangeable Arch System:
The eFit footbed is supplied with four arch supports to customise the footbed to provide the correct amount of support under the medial arch. The Efit footbed stabilises the foot and reduces pronation. Pressure is spread more evenly under the foot helping to relieve hotspots and the extra support reduces pronation and improves knee tracking and power output.
Highly developed materials designed to provide controlled flex and adapt to the characteristics of your foot under normal body heat.

Top Sheet:Moisture wicking perforated polyester (also washable)

Insole:Premium EVA Material - Impact Absorption

eFit Technology:
Metatarsal Pad:Reduces forefoot tingling, numbness and hotspots

Advanced Design Footbed:Premium EVA Material - Impact absorption
Arch Contour Technology:Activated by body heat, the arch system adjusts to match your individual arch length and contour.
