ERO Insight - Remote Bike Fit & Aero Consultation

ERO Insight

ERO Insight is our remote Bike Fitting, or Position Coaching, service for those who live too far from either of our locations to be fit in person, but still wish to take advantage of our experience and expertise. After thousands of bike fits over nearly 15 years, few fitters have found the success of ERO. We count amongst our clients over 20 Elite World Champions, Dozens of National Champions, and countless Age Group Champions. We've used motion capture long before virtually anyone else, analyzed all the data collected from the 3D motion captures of every client, and created ERO Insight as a unique fit system allowing us to provide the same quality of service online we offer in our fit studio.

The Position Coaching will be performed by me, Jim Manton, owner of ERO Sports. I have two options for you based on your needs. Each service involves video capture and analyzation, and include multiple "sessions." Following specific guidelines I provide, you take video captures of your position from 2 or more distinct angles and send them to me for review. I analyze them with specialized software to measure your specific biomechanics, and create an action list of position adjustments for improved comfort and performance. Each set of captures with subsequent review and recommendations constitute a session.

We can use Insight to fit any type of bike: Road, Gravel, Triathlon, Time Trial, Mountain Bike, Track. All can be fit with our system.

Why are am I doing this? Well, it's pretty simple. It's very hard, apparently, to get a good bike fit. There are a lot of people doing bike fits out there, but based on poor results constantly being posted online by people who are uncomfortable on their bikes, and the equally poor advice they receive as feedback on forums, I began helping athletes remotely and found great success while developing a process which allowed them to find their optimal positions. It worked so well, I decided to offer it as an official service for those who live too far from either of the ERO fit studios (don't forget Missy in Pennsylvania is awesome!), or even for those who live nearby but don't want to drive to Carson.

Few people in the world have more expeirence helping athletes lower their drag, and now everyone can enjoy the fruits of all that work.

Like our fit services, we analyze position videos you take from specific angles, and make recommendations for possible aeras of improvement. This covers not only position, but equipment as well. Bike, Aero Bars, Components, Helmets, and Clothing are all covered.
