CycleFit Ireland Special Offer
CycleFit Ireland (Ian Cassidy or Casso), uses Retul to fit you to your bike.
Retul is a 3D dynamic motion capture system, using LED’s placed on the body to capture the rider’s movements while in motion and under load on the bike.
Dynamic fitting is the most comprehensive
Using motion capture technology, Retül records a rider’s position while he or she is in motion, therefore creating the most realistic picture of the rider’s actual pedal strokes and body positions when out on the road.
Biomechanics are best assessed in 3D space.
Fit data collected in a traditional two-dimensional plane (such as video) is fairly limited because the fitter can only look at one view at a time. In order to see how all of the applicable movements of the body are working together, the front and side planes of a rider should be viewed as interdependent reference points. Retül’s motion sensors simultaneously gather data on multiple angles of the rider in three dimensions.
Measurement accuracy is vital
Slight inaccuracies (the difference of millimeters) can drastically change a rider’s feel after a ride. The Retül system is accurate to within less than a millimeter, creating true objective data which can be utilized by the fitter for the perfect biomechanical fit.
A fit will take between 2-3hrs and involve a biomechanical assessment, placing the markers on the body and recording of data and adjusting the bike to achieve an optimal and sustainable position on the bike. For more info see www.retul.com
Ian is very kindly offering a special price to Piranha Triathlon Club members of €130 (normally €185) per bike, or 2 x bikes for EUR200. Furthermore, the Club will subsidise this price by EUR15, so members pay just EUR115 for one bike, or EUR185 for two.
Retul is used by most of the worlds top triathletes and number of cycling teams including Team Sky, Garmin and Europcar
Contact Ian either through the piranhatri website, through via email: [email protected] ph: 083-449-8660, facebook or twitter @retuldublin or mobile to arrange a fitting or have any questions answered.

DK ORTHOTICS & INJURY CLINIC B2R – updated 1st Dec 2014
Darren Kelly from DK Orthotics & Injury Clinic within Base2Race qualified from the University of Bedfordshire in 2006 with a BSc honours degree in Sports Therapy and biomechanics.
Darren has extensive experience of working with all levels of triathletes and knowing the sport as a triathlete himself is a key component to his understanding of the mechanism of most injuries when sports specific. Biomechanics has a key role in any sporting movement and if there is a weak link in that chain the body will expose it. Awareness of these weaknesses will only makes you better as an athlete and less injured as a result meaning more goals can be achieved.
Darren has treated such athletes as Gavin Noble, Maria McCambridge, Katie Taylor and a large number of Piranhas.
