A bike adjusted to your measurements is both safer, faster and enhances the overall experience. Mtb-Fit or Bike-Fit for mountain bikes is something that is often overlooked but it is a critical part of ensuring the rider feels confident and in control no matter what terrain you are likely to encounter.


A traditional Bike Fit originally comes from road cycling and is primarily focused on finding extra power and reducing the risk of injury by positioning the body’s flexible joints in the right positions. This is done in a seated position and the more hours per week you spend in the saddle the more important this becomes. Our bikes and saddles are adjusted to your leg length to create the best possible foundation for efficiency when you are sitting in a static position and climbing over varied terrain.

Who wants to sit down in the saddle all of the time? It is when the trail challenges us that the adrenaline rises. That’s when we get into the zone where thought and action happen almost instinctively. It is in these situations that a properly adjusted bike can make the difference between completing a technical section with or without stopping. It´s time for moderna mountain bikes to get an appropriate bike-fit that suitable to the exertion.

What is your most powerful position?

To achieve this result, it is a matter of setting the bike according to the body’s most powerful position so that you can use all available strength in exactly the right situation. The relationship between your hands and the ground when you stand in a powerful dead lift position is the same relationship that your pedals (crank) should have to your handlebars. This measurement we call your body’s lift reach (not to be confused with bike reach) and gives you maximum control and strength in the lever movement that you use on the bike to get up, down and over technical difficulties.

Same measurement for XC & Downhill.

Since your lift reach is the same regardless of whether you are cycling uphill or downhill, the measurement between cranks and handlebars is the same across all mountain bike categories. What differs between the categories is the angle between the crank and the handlebar, where XC has a lower angle and downhill a higher angle. This is to match the riding style that best suit the intended use for both rider and the bike, whether that be uphill, downhill or a balance of both.

we offer a bike tuned after your measurements.

Unlike mass-produced bicycle brands where everything is simplified and standardized, we have the possibility to tune the bike after your measurements and riding style. The width of the handlebars is adapted to your shoulder width, arm length and height. The length of the stem is chosen to match the distance between the crank and the handlebar. This unique adaptation allows most people to choose the size of the bike more freely, where the larger size becomes more stable and the smaller becomes more playful and nimble. 

We also adjust the saddle height according to your measurements to create the most efficient pedaling movement possible, but this is done completely separately from the position of the handlebar.

measure at home to get your lift reach right away.

We have standardized tables to calculate your measurements and if you are relatively proportional to your height, we can use these. 

You can also measure this exactly yourself by rotating your shoulders backwards and downwards, hands at the same width as the handlebars, shoes on and thinking that you are lifting something heavy. The measurement between the floor and the center of the fictitious handlebar you are now holding in your hands is the measurement that the bike should now be set to. A tip might be to hold a pencil and either draw or measure the distance to the ground,  remember to keep the pencil level with the ground in order to get an accurate measurement.

This measurement is now used to set your handlebar in relation to the crank. This is done by creating a line between your grips with a string or other straight attachment.

Now measure between the center of the crank to one 1cm below the line you created above, (1cm below is to measure to the center of the handlebar.)
