This is for someone who has not had an aerotest with us before. We discuss the testing with you over the phone in advance of the testing to make sure that we are as time efficient as possible on the day. The testing consists of an initial assessment on a turbo trainer, 2 hours of exclusive track time to identify position options to reduce drag, with a full debrief afterwards. A report is provided afterwards to ensure that key information is not forgotten.
Two-Rider Aerotest £1100
This follows the same process as per a single-rider Aerotest, except that it consists of 3 hours of exclusive track time split between 2 people. This session make effective use of the track time, in that one rider is on the track testing while the other is evaluating results and making changes to equipment or position prior to carrying out another test run. In order to book a two-rider Aerotest, you must find a fellow cyclist and make one booking and payment. The lead rider is therefore responsible for paying for both cyclists.
Repeat Aerotest £365
For returning customers it is possible to book a one-hour Aerotesting session, which is a great option for fine tuning positions or measuring differences between skinsuits, helmets and wheels for specific situations or up-coming events. This session consists of 1 hour of exclusive track time, a debrief and report.
Note that we can test road bikes and track bikes.
Road or TT Bike Position £195
Our process includes an initial functional assessment, and evaluation of your existing position and various adjustments to your shoes, cleats, saddle and bike based upon your individual needs. These sessions can take between 2 and 3 hours. Included within the price is a free position review within 6 months.
Cleat and Shoe fitting £70
If you need a new set of shoes and pedals setting up, or are about to use clips pedals for the first time, it's essential to get them set up correctly to avoid knee injuries in particular and ensure that your legs will be working biomechanically correctly. This session takes approximately 45 minutes.
Position Review £80
This is for customers that have previously have a bike fit with us. The body constantly changes as we age, detrain, and adapt to new positions so it is important to keep reviewing and adjust your position to align with these changes. This is also for customers that have purchased new bike since the last bike fit and need to ensure that it is set up as before.
Position Problem Solving £80 / hr
Often we can develop pain or seem to lose power without understanding why, as nothing seems to have changed on the bike. We look at your function off the bike, and your position and function on the bike to understand what is causing your problems. We then will work through a process to address them to get you back to your former comfort and performance.
Pedaling Technique Analysis
Initial Assessment and Training £80
This session evaluates your peddling technique using both the analysis of video and pedaling forces using a Wattbike while you pedal at a range of different intensities and cadences. We set up the Wattbike to exactly match your bike, and once we have completed a thorough analysis, we will use a number of drills and exercises to improve your peddling efficiency and effectiveness, and help you pedal with a smooth peddling technique that will glide you up those hills!
Additional Technique Training £90 for 3 x 30 minute sessions
Once we have identified how your pedaling needs to improve to enhance your performance, you can book a series of three 1:1 sessions to work on your technique on an individual basis to make sure that the changes you make to your technique become embedded into your normal movement pattern while on the road.

Maximum Aerobic Power (MAP) £85
We carry out a standardised ramp test to identify the highest power output that you can sustain aerobically. We also take blood lactate samples adoring the initial recovery from your effort to measure peak blood lactate and evaluate your anaerobic system contribution.
Lactate profile £125
You carryout perform a number of intervals at increasing power outputs, while a small capillary blood sample is taken to measure lactate. We record your 'lactate profile' to evacuate and monitor your responses to aerobic endurance training and to accurately identify heart rate and power-based training zones.
Lactate profile and Maximal Aerobic Power £185
This is a single visit to measure both aspects if your physiological abilities, and is the ideal option for tracking and monitoring changes in response to training. By testing both together it is a saving of £25.
Critical Power profile £120
Understanding how your body responds to mixed training of both high intensity sprints and lower intensity endurance work is essential for the serious road racer or time trialler in particular. The Critical Power profile consists of 4 maximal effort tests including peak power, conducted in 2 separate visits during the space of a few days, and allows us to evaluate current physiological abilities, identify what needs to improve to perform well at your key events, and how you respond to training over time.
Peak Power £60
After a thorough warm up we carry out a series of 6 second tests to measure Peak Power output. As well as measuring peak power we record fatigue and pedaling technique during the effort. Measuring and monitoring this accurately is essential for anyone involved in high intensity efforts such as sprint finishes.
Note that all high intensity physical tests will be preceded by a physical screening test to ensure that you are in the correct health status to undertake the tests. In advance of your visit you will receive a form to complete with some pre-visit questions on your health and medical history.
