Contact Point Biomechanics 2 – THE ADVANCED LEVEL

The advanced ISCO Contact Point class addresses experienced bike fitters who either hold an ISCO Level 1 Certificate and / or are highly experienced in professional bike fitting!

In this online course series, we will discuss and demonstrate advanced topics in a professional bike fitting. 
You will learn about enhanced fit protocols to bring your bike fit service to the next level. 

Various optimization opportunities like crank length and chain ring design at the foot – pedal contact point will be discussed based on the scientific evidence and the practical experience of the gebioMized fit staff. The perspective on position sustainability and longterm position development will be the extend of your already well-developed understanding about the stability of the rider.  

Backed up with various real-world bike fitting cases we create an understanding of position stability and the optimal force transfer to avoid overuse injuries and gain performance. This CPB online education series is created with an application-oriented approach.
