Everything you need to know about postural studies

What is a postural study?

A postural study is an in-depth analysis of the rider’s position on the bike. It aims to assess and optimize the cyclist’s posture to improve comfort, performance and even safety.

Why carry out a postural study?

Carrying out a postural study on a bicycle offers several significant advantages:

Comfort: A good position on the bike reduces pressure points and muscular tension, improving rider comfort during long, intense rides.

Injury prevention: Poor posture can lead to muscle pain, overworked joints or chronic injuries. A postural study can identify potential problems and make adjustments to reduce the risk of injury.

Performance: An optimal position on the bike promotes better transmission of muscle power, improved aerodynamics and increased pedaling efficiency, which translates into better performance on the road or track.

Individual adaptation: Each cyclist has a specific morphology and needs. A postural study enables us to adapt the position on the bike to the individual characteristics of each rider.

In short, carrying out a postural study on a bicycle helps optimize the rider’s position on the bike, resulting in greater comfort, reduced risk of injury and improved performance.

Who is the postural study for?

A postural study is aimed at all cyclists, whatever their level of experience or type of riding:

– Beginners: New cyclists may find it difficult to find a comfortable position on their bike. A postural study can help them adjust their position right from the start, promoting a more pleasant cycling experience and encouraging regular practice.

Regular cyclists: Even experienced cyclists can experience posture problems that limit their comfort or performance. A postural study enables them to identify and correct these problems to optimize their cycling experience.

Cyclists suffering from pain or injury: Some cyclists experience pain or injury during or after their outings. A postural study can help identify the underlying causes of these problems and make adjustments to relieve pain and prevent future injury.

Competitors: For competitive cyclists, every little advantage counts. An optimal position on the bike can make all the difference in terms of performance and competition results. A postural study helps maximize aerodynamics, pedaling efficiency and comfort, which can lead to improved performance at the finish line.
