Easy to follow step by step guide

One of the leading experts in bike ergonomics, Dr Kim Tofaute created the fitting box to enhance comfort, performance and riding pleasure. The development of the fitting box was done in a way to be easily understood by everyone. In just seven steps, you are able to ergonomically align your bike to your body, preventing common improper fit complaints!

The Ergon Fitting Box Comfort – in only seven steps to more comfort on the bike

Better fit = better performance

Not only does a proper fit alleviate common discomforts, it also increases your riding efficiency. The wrong saddle height in itself prevents your legs from putting out the maximum amount of power to the pedal, which causes you to lose speed. If this and other measurements on your bike are not correct, your body is quicker to fatigue. All of this reduces your performance, speed and efficiency.

Riding enjoyment without discomfort

Cycling is a great activity that keeps you fit, healthy and is fun to do! However, it’s not always a pure pleasure. Eighty percent of all cyclists complain about sitting problems, neck pain, numb fingers or uncomfortable feet. One of the primarily causes for this is an improper bike fit. With the Fitting Box – Road Expert you are able to set your bike up to avoid these common complaints.
