“Whether starting a new cycling discipline, concerned you are on the incorrect size of bike or have trouble finding shoes and saddles that fit – Specialized Retul Match can help. With just a few questions about riding discipline/preferred position and some simple measurements, Retul Match will advise you on bike size and style, saddle height, the best fitting shoes for your needs and a saddle that matches your unique shape. It can even tell you which shoe inserts are best for your arch height.
I put the Retul Match to the test as I have always had a problem finding the correct shoes and saddles so I was particularly interested in what this would suggest for me. First of all the frame size and saddle height came up spot on (from just three measurements per leg). After having my feet measured in just a couple of minutes, it suggested I would be a size 45. I was sceptical as I have always worn size 46 Specialized shoe but having tried on a few pairs from the suggestions list, I have to say this was spot on as well. I have not tried the first saddle recommended (I will soon though!) but the number two on the list is the exact saddle I use so I have to say, I am thoroughly impressed with how simple and quick it is to nail down the right bike/shoes/saddle.
We currently have these set up in our Newcastle and Bruntsfield Stores so please pop in and speak to our Retul Match trained staff.”
