Fitting Box Digital

A bike only rides as well as it fits you. Depending on the type of bike and riding style, the contact points of the saddle, handlebars and pedals must be adjusted to you. With the Fitting Box, adjusting your bike is quick, easy and precise, without any prior knowledge. The interactive digital instructions make the process easy and makes ergonomic fit child's play.

Easy to understand step by step

More comfort, more performance, more riding fun - Dr. Kim Tofaute, one of Europe's leading experts in bicycle ergonomics, has developed a step-by-step method that is easy for anyone to understand. In just seven steps, you can adjust your bike to suit you perfectly and prevent discomfort.

Adjust the bike individually

To ensure no aches or pains while riding, the contact points of the saddle, handlebars and pedals must be individually adjusted to your body and riding style. The "Touring" version of the Fitting Box covers a wide range of Touring bikes - from city, touring and trekking bikes to fitness or e-bikes.

Riding pleasure without discomfort

Cycling keeps you fit. It’s fun and healthy - but it's not always enjoyabe. 80% of all cyclists complain of saddle problems, neck pain, numb fingers or feet that fall asleep. The cause: your bike is not set up correctly. With the Fitting Box Touring, you can avoid discomfort - ideal for anyone who wants to ride a lot without getting lost in the intricacies of technique.

Better sitting = better performance

Those who sit optimally on their bike not only have more fun, but are also faster. The wrong saddle height alone will prevent your legs from exerting the greatest possible force on the pedals and you will lose speed. If these and other measurements on your bike are not correct, you will also experience discomfort. All of this reduces your performance, which you could achieve with the same effort thanks to better biomechanics.

Tested back friendly

Back pain is the number one widespread ailment, which can quickly spoil the fun of cycling. The back-friendly effect of the Ergon Fitting Boxes was officially confirmed with the AGR Seal of Approval from "Aktion Gesunder Rücken" (Campaign for Healthier Backs), an extensive testing procedure by an interdisciplinary panel of experts consisting of doctors, orthopedists and physiotherapists.


The Developer Dr. Kim Tofaute – Pioneer of sports ergonomics

The Ergon Fitting Box was developed by Dr. Kim Tofaute for Ergon. Dr. Tofaute is one of the few sports ergonomists in Europe with a doctorate and is regarded as a pioneer of the discipline in Germany. Dr. Tofaute headed the Ergon development department for six years and is now the head of the Ergon ergonomics laboratory and owner of the company Fitting Expert.

The Manual A perfect guide

With the Fitting Box, anyone can optimize their bike at home in no time at all. The manual guides you step by step through all the settings with simple explanations. The instructions have been written by Dr. Kim Tofaute in such a way that they are easy to implement even without any prior knowledge.

The Shablons Accurate to the millimeter

The Fitting Box contains four measuring templates and helpful marking stickers. This makes it easy for you to transfer the specifications from the manual to your bike with millimeter precision.
