EKIB EDUCATION

Knowledge is the most powerful tool
At Ekib Bike Fitting we focus on developing the analytical and decision taking professional's skills, always under the scope of science and experience.

METHODOLOGY

We have the most advanced technology for the study of cycling biomechanics but we firmly believe that this is useless unless it is supported by a good training that allows the correct analysis and interpretation of the obtained data. In Ekib we focus on developing the professional’s analytical and decision making skills always under the scope of science and experience.

 

In order to perform a bike fit, knowledge of several disciplines, such as anatomy, joint physiology, aerodynamics, etc., is a must, as well as a comprehensive knowledge of the existing accessories, components and bicycles in the market. That is why we offer a comprehensive training where no aspect is left behind, so that you can offer a professional and well-founded service from the first day.

METHODOLOGY COURSES

Practice with real clients

Hands-on training is key in every learning process. In all our courses you will have the opportunity to handle different bike-fit related technology and work with real clients, so you can implement the learned contents under the supervision and help of the instructor (who will guide you through the process and argue all carried out actions)

Customization

Each professional has his/her own training, knowledge and previous experience, with strengths and weaknesses in different fields. That is why we offer customized courses, to address the aspects that you need to develop or reinforce.

Objectivity and scientific accuracy

Many of the trainings offered in the market are linked to a certain tool or system or simply deal with their operational functions. Ekib training programs aim to broaden your knowledge and develop your analysis and decision-taking skills so that you can carry out the correct and necessary actions regardless the system you work with. Our training will enable you to objectively interpret the cyclist’s data and personal insights.
