Torke Cycling Off Road Positioning takes the fundamental principles of Torke Cycling Body Positioning and looks at how these elements relate to the cyclist traveling over rough ground.
The bike fitter will learn practical methods for assessing the cyclist’s ability to deal with off road forces as well as techniques for positioning the bicycle to best resolve the challenges for a given kind of off road cycling.
Due to the cyclist’s greater need to confidently handle a bicycle off road this course also offers an introduction to bicycle handling, geometry and component selection.
- Control – comfort – performance and their relation
- Variation in terrain
- Muscle activation to keep balance
