Faster, farther, better.
Conceived to create an optimal union between rider and machine, the Cyfac Postural System is the realization of more than 20 years' of detailed positioning analysis done at France's Lyon Center of Sports Medicine. A full decade was spent conducting the research and development for the actual CPS system as we see it today. All of this was independently done to ensure unbiased and scientifically-sound data, unspoiled by preconceptions of what works on the bike. On the surface, our approach seems quite simple. We don't have a bike sizing machine, a fit session is quick, and we don't measure a rider with a myriad of different tools and techniques. This is by design.
Extensive testing, research, and practical analyses serve as the back-drop to the Cyfac Postural System. More than 60,000 fit sessions boiled down to provide the most precise, reliable, and quantifiable data affecting your performance on a bike. Because of the dynamic inter-related function of the body, knowledge of key variables provides a comprehensive analysis of the rider's profile. Keeping the process streamlined, however, eliminates error by focusing on the salient aspects of bike fit and how the rider-machine relate.
Why fit is so important:
A custom fit -- one that places you and your machine in perfect harmony -- is the best way to realize your riding potential. Each rider's morphology, level, history, and riding discipline demands a specific position adapted to the individual. The proper set-up improves efficiency, comfort, performance, and aerodynamics while ensuring injury prevention. The proper frame geometry will provide dynamic handling, confidence, and the best synergy between rider and bike. If you crave the ultimate benefits of a custom design or if you simply want to adapt the optimal position on your current bike (if possible), the CPS will enable this.
How the Postural System can help your riding:
The Postural System considers body measurements, rider characteristics, injury history, equipment choice, and cycling discipline to create an optimal rider position and frame geometry. The criteria of The Cyfac Postural System ensures a quantifiable and researched design backed up by lab-tested analyses and real-world proof from some of the world's greatest events. Tour de France riders, World Champions, and Olympic medalists choose the CPS for their fitting needs as have more than 10,000 riders across all levels and disciplines the past three years. The combination of theoretical analyses and practical testing provide the most dynamic fit available today.
The Postural System can be used to position you on your current stock bike, determine the best stock bike of any manufacturer for you, and to generate a custom frame design that can be used by any builder.
Cyfac's Postural fit system is the best way to judge whether or not a frame will fit and which frame you should choose. Cyfac's Postural System generates a position analysis and actual frame design so that you can see what fits you best even from among stock model choices.
