Step lenght

The step length is the length of the inside of the leg. The best and most accurate measure your step length with the help of a spirit level and a tape measure. If you do not have a spirit level at hand, you can also use a book or something similar. Stand barefoot on a level surface and clamp the spirit level or the book as horizontally as possible between your legs. Then pull it up until it gets uncomfortable. Now measure the distance from the top of the spirit level to the floor. The value read corresponds to your step length.

IMPORTANT: Measure really up to the top to determine the correct step length!

Roadbike

The step height for a road bike, singlespeed or fitness bike is multiplied by 0.665, resulting in the theoretical value of the frame height in cm. The triathlon frame frame height is about 3.5 cm - 5 cm lower.

Important: The result refers to the German way of measuring!

If the theoretical value lies between two sizes, the following rule of thumb applies:

  • In competition-oriented driving style rather the smaller size

  • In sporty/comfort driving style rather the next larger size
