RetÃ¼l brings a global reputation of success and experience to broaden knowledge of custom footbeds among bike fitters
Boulder, COâ€”March 28, 2013 â€“Footbalance, an innovator in custom footbed technology, is proud to announce a partnership with RetÃ¼l. RetÃ¼l, the leader in three dimensional, motion capture bike fit technology, will incorporate the Footbalance System custom analysis and molding process into its educational offerings.
RetÃ¼l University is an international learning center where fitters can learn a science-based, data-driven approach to fitting cyclists with bikes. From now on, RetÃ¼l University will offer a Cycling Specific Footbeds course, where a RetÃ¼l fitter will be taught the Footbalance custom analysis and molding process.Â This includes molding Footbalanceâ€™s full line of custom footbeds for cyclists in fewer than 10 minutes using the Footbalance Recommendation System (FRS) software to provide a free overview of usersâ€™ foot dynamics and stance.
â€œRetÃ¼l takes pride in being the leading data driven fit system globally,â€ says RetÃ¼l Universityâ€™s Global Manager Matt Smith. â€œAnd now, with Footbalance, we are able to take our expertise even further by offering custom molded footbeds for an even more precise fit, which will result in a more well rounded set of fitting tools for our certified fitters and most importantly, gives riders better power transfer and comfort on the bike,â€
Since Footbalance footbeds help facilitate proper alignment of feet and ankles which can affect stability, prevent injury and improve performance, Footbalance North America sales director Chris Griffin says the system is perfect for cyclists. Â â€œBy adding custom molded footbeds to their program, cyclists will have better comfort and responsiveness with their pedals, which should give them more confidence and more effective training and racing,â€ says Griffin.
With its North American Headquarters in Boulder, Colorado, Footbalance was developed by a Finnish physiotherapist specializing in podiatric medicine. The system enables the rapid production of fully customized footbeds at retail stores in less than ten minutes. Available for fittings at shops and special events across the US and Canada, Footbalance footbeds support your feet in proper alignment to promote healthy foot function, improving overall body alignment. www.footbalance.comÂ Â www.twitter.com/footbalanceÂ www.facebook.com/
In late 2007, RetÃ¼l launched its signature 3D motion capture bicycle fitting system. Five years later and now with over 400 RetÃ¼l systems across the globe, we have developed additional best-in-class fitting tools such as the RetÃ¼l MÃ¼ve dynamic fit bike and software solutions such as RetÃ¼l Frame Finder.
