Discover how to correctly set all the parameters of your Technogym Ride in order to maintain a correct position during your cycling experience.
When you receive your Technogym Ride, you'll be able to adjust all of its settings to ensure that your cycling experience is completely in line with your needs.
In fact, if, for example, you already have a technical sheet with your personalized bike fitting measurements, you'll be able to set it appropriately.
If, on the other hand, you don’t have it, you'll be able to find the best bike fitting according to your personal physical characteristics, with the most common bike fitting practices.
More specifically, you can set:
The height of the saddle: can be adjusted by directly pressing the yellow marker under the saddle, and pulling it down or up to your liking, choosing from a value from 1 to 27. Furthermore, to guarantee you an extreme personalization, you can also define the height millimetrically, unscrewing the screw and finding the right position. In order to correctly identify the height of your saddle, among the different methods, you can verify it by positioning the saddle at the height of your hip. Then, once you are on your Ride, make sure that the foot is hooked onto the pedal, with a knee flexion angle between 25° and 35°: this is the ideal position (when the pedal is parallel to the ground).
The horizontal position of the saddle: can be adjusted by sliding the saddle forward or backward after unlocking it with the yellow marker, choosing a numerical value from 1 to 10. In this case, to find an optimal position, once on the bike, place the crank of the pedal horizontally, parallel to the ground, then following the KOPS method (Knee Over Pedal Spindle) verify that the knee is above the pedal axle.
Handlebar height: it can be adjusted by raising or lowering it, after unlocking it with the lever located in front of your Ride. The divergent system makes it possible to adjust both the height of the handlebars and the horizontal position with a single adjustment: thanks to this 'double adjustment system', the geometry of the frame is able to adapt to different sizes (from 50 to 58+) and to suit different postures and training positions. Therefore, it will be possible to find the position that suits your characteristics the best to reach the handlebars comfortably, and in this way, distributing the weight on the handlebars in a balanced manner.
The length of the crankset: through a specific adjustment bushing, setting it to one of the available options: 170 mm, 172.5 mm or 175 mm. The longer crank is ideal for constant effort, suitable for those who prefer pedalling with strength; the shorter crank, on the other hand, allows you to work at higher frequencies, suitable for those who prefer agility. According to your anthropometric measurements, the type of race and pedalling cadence, you can choose the one which suits your needs the best.
Please note that Technogym Ride comes directly with pedals with dual function: both with quick release and with straps. In addition, in case of need, Technogym provides you the possibility to substitute the available pedals directly with your own ones, in order to guarantee you a personalization at the highest level.
And concluding, you can perfectly define the adjustable console that comes with your Technogym Ride, for an even more immersive experience.
(Furthermore, if more people are working out on the same Technogym Ride, since this product is extremely professional, it is suggested to note down all the settings in order to always have a personalized and performing training experience).
