Our friends at Retul have had a couple of big weeks lately. Crucial Innovation Inc, makers of Retul 3D Bike Fit System, have announced a new partnership with the Radio Shack Professional Cycling Team. A strategic relationship that started with Dr. Allen Lim and Capital Sports and Entertainment President Bart Knaggs, who manages both the Lance Armstrong and Team Radio Shack and co-owns Mellow Johnnys Bicycle Shop(along with Armstrong) in Austin who has been a Retul fit center since 2008.
The team will utilize Retul’s Bike Fit Technology within daily team operations and at their US and European bases. In December 2009, the Retul team attended Team Radio Shack’s first training camp in Tucson, AZ where they introduced the motion capture tool to the athletes and staff.
In February 2010, Retul was honored to have been invited to the newest team phenom in professional triathlon’s training camp, the Trek K-Swiss Pro team. Under veterans Chris Lieto and Julie Dibens, this team is stacked with talent and Retul fitters Todd Carver and Mat Steinmetz especially enjoyed fitting the team on the new Speed Concepts.
