Velogic’s Studio 4 release brings dual-sided 3D motion capture to the game, offering a more advanced bike fit report that covers everything from power, cadence, and pedaling dynamics to aerodynamics!

The data capture provides a complete report, giving bike fitters everything they need to speed up the process and deliver better results. And, now, they’ll have unique data for each side of your body, then apply it to almost any bike on the market.

Velogic’s database of 18,000 bikes lets fitters take the data and overlay it with video to show a rider how they can better fit their own bike, or create the right fit on almost any new bike they could want. It can even overlay your motion from different settings, letting you compare changes visually as well as through data.

The process uses Orbbec Femto Mega cameras linked to a computer, where software reads the input and spits out a report with exact measurements and shows both client and fitter the results on screen as video. The aerodynamics data should prove interesting for roadies and triathletes when it comes online in Q2 2024.

Pricing for studios ranges from $1,200 to $1,800 per year depending on the plan, with an upfront first-year price of $3,000 to $4,500 for setup (monthly pricing also available, and subscription does not include hardware costs).

Using video is 2d. 2d from both sides is still not 3d. It’s cool tech, but not 3d.

It doesn’t need to be “3D” – the systems use 2 cameras, each addressing the plane in which they’re positioned. The result is quantitative sagittal and frontal plane data, sufficient in this use-case.
