Optimizes performance

One thing many may overlook when thinking about increasing their watt production and power output is their position on the bike.


The goal of a bike fit is to find a position that allows you to use key muscle groups to produce as much power as possible for a extended period of time, without risking further development of injuries. 


This position varies from person to person. By considering your unique pain points, mobility, body type, and cycling style, Apiir is able to identify the optimal position for you.

How does Apiir help?


To maximize power output, it is essential to ensure that your position optimally engages the muscles at the front and back of your thighs, and having a good range of motion in your pedal stroke. 


Apiir aims to align you within the optimal knee angle range, facilitating for a more balanced use of thigh muscles, ultimately leading to improved power production.


The knee angle is important, but should not be considered in isolation. The hip angle is equally as important, playing a pivotal role in securing a wide range of motion and ensuring effective power transfer throughout the entire pedal stroke - giving you the ability to produce more watts!


The angle ranges used by Apiir are drawn from extensive bike research and  cycling literature, refined and tailored to each cyclist in collaboration with bike fitters.

Aerodynamic drag is a critical factor in cycling performance. As speed increases, overcoming air resistance becomes increasingly demanding. Even small improvements in aerodynamics can lead to significant reductions in the power needed to maintain speed.

Efficiency is key in maximizing performance. Enhancing bike and rider aerodynamics allows for faster speeds with the same power output or less effort required to maintain speed. Competitive cyclists and triathletes prioritize aerodynamic efficiency for optimal performance.

The power-to-drag ratio is crucial. By minimizing drag, cyclists can achieve higher speeds without needing to increase power output.

In practical terms, aerodynamics dominate on flat or downhill terrain, while weight becomes more significant on steep climbs.

Utilizing aerodynamic equipment and adopting streamlined riding positions are common strategies to reduce drag and enhance performance. Ultimately, improving aerodynamics allows cyclists to use their power more effectively, resulting in faster speeds.
