LEOMO launches remote bicycle assembly service in Europe
This affordable and easy-to-use service uses LEOMO’s portable motion analysis technology to collect data on a rider’s precise movements to optimize their saddle position.
Boulder, CO (May 20, 2021) – LEOMO Inc., a company that helps cyclists and triathletes of all skill levels break through power plateaus with direct-to-customer products and services that make the ride faster, stronger, more efficient and injury-free, launched its innovative remote bicycle assembly service in Europe using its wearable motion analysis technology.
Using LEOMO technology and cycling form expertise derived from thousands of athlete data analysis sessions, the Remote Bike Adjustment Service allows all levels of riders and triathletes to adjust their position and movements for optimum performance without having to visit a bicycle shop. The service debuted in Japan and the United States in 2020 with rave reviews.
The remote bike fit service uses LEOMO’s next-level cycling metrics that optimize body position and pedaling shape with five motion sensors. The service includes the rental of the TYPE-S Pro sensor kit from LEOMO and guidance for riders to complete the measurement process on their road or triathlon / TT bike on a smart home trainer from the comfort of their own home.
After data collection, metrics are shared with the LEOMO analysis team to provide expertise and guidance on how to improve positioning based on the LEOMO Motion Performance Indicator (MPI) data. . Optimal cycling position and improving the strength specific to that position can help stabilize a cyclist’s pelvic and pedaling motion, optimize range of motion for the hip joint, and maximize the output power.
Traditional methods of bicycle adjustment using coefficients, over-the-counter services using bulky harnesses, and empirical and sensory adjustments have been used to measure and adjust saddle heights. With this new remote service, LEOMO will provide cyclists and triathletes with their own reference and starting point for those who do not have a standard value. In addition, experienced riders will have more room to improve their performance thanks to the height of the saddle and the recoil position based on motion analysis.
Typically, competitive cyclists and triathletes go through a bicycle assembly service once or twice a year. But there is often a need and demand for micro-adjustments between services based on improving fitness, occasional discomfort, and changing body position. Many athletes do not have a bike rider nearby when they experience pain or discomfort in their current position or want to adjust their position to improve performance.
“By undergoing a LEOMO bike adjustment on my road bike, I was finally able to find the same pleasant feeling on my road bike as on my TT bike”, says Victor Campenaerts, a Belgian professional cyclist who rides for UCI WorldTeam NTT Pro Cycling and holds the hour record of 55.089 km.
“This new service gives you the personal contribution of an expert rider-fitter with the precision of motion analysis technology that truly makes it a unique service to achieve those latest percentage gains to maximize your performance,” says Adam Hansen, an Australian professional cyclist who rode for the UCI WorldTeam Lotto – Soudal in 2020 and holds the record for 20 consecutive Grand Tour events.
LEOMO was founded on the principle that “precision makes perfect”, and it has developed sports motion tracking technology with the belief that every cyclist and triathlete can improve their movements to become more efficient, faster, stronger and less. susceptible to injury.
In a recently signed partnership with Movistar Team, LEOMO uses its motion analysis technology to provide pedaling motion analysis, training feedback and data-driven race data review for runners. Movistar (men, women and esports) with the aim of identifying and improving the weaknesses of runners. and posture to optimize bike position, bike shape, cycling economy, and training and running performance.
This summer, LEOMO will launch a remote bicycle mounting service directly to the customer for TYPE-R and TYPE-S owners, as well as a service for device owners who wish to integrate the service into their coaching or bicycle assembly. In addition, LEOMO will launch a new cycling performance clinic with four courses aimed at helping cyclists improve efficiency, reduce pain and discomfort, cross training grids and prepare for races.
