Hurting hands and numb fingers are frequent troubles of MTB-riders.With our new pressure measurement film for the MTB handlebar we answer some of the previously unsolved questions in MTB-bikefitting, such as: How is the force distributed between saddle and handlebar?
One of the main causes of overstrained shoulders, arms and hands is the high pressure on the handlebar. With an
uncomfortable saddle the pressure is usually enhanced by a tilt of the saddle. This shifts the rider’s centre of gravity
towards the handlebar. Our measurement technique can measure this effect quickly and exactly to optimize the contact point handlebar in the bikefitting.
