Welcome to the Nordic Bike Fitting Academy
Would you like to learn bike fitting?
Are you new to bike fitting or do you have previous experience? Would like to learn bike fitting for mountain bikes, road bikes or maybe for time trial/triathlon bikes? Regardless of your level of prior training and experience and regardless of your specific area of interest, we have the right course for you!
In cooperation with Torke Cyckling, an internationally renowned bike fitting institute in England, we offer a broad range of courses. Our courses are accredited by the International Bike Fitting Institute (IBFI) in England and are all designed with a view to teaching state-of-the-art techniques that will enable course participants to do bikefits at the highest professional level. Our courses focus on teaching participants both the theory behind bike fitting techniques and the practical application of these techniques. But we do more than that – our overriding aim is to ensure that when you have completed your course, not only are you fully equipped to do a professional bikefit but you also possess that bit extra it takes for riders to experience the “WOW” factor when you do their bikefits.
To ensure the best possible learning environment, we teach small, intimate classes – all our courses have a maximum of only 5 participants. Also, our instructors are some of the very best around, all highly trained and vastly experienced, chosen for their infectious enthusiasm and superb teaching skills. Comprehensive course materials are distributed to participants at the start of each course and on completion of a course, course certificates are issued to participants. Furthermore, you earn credits towards your IBFI certification if you are a member of IBFI.
Nordic Bike Fitting Academy Levels
Our courses are taught at all levels, from an introductory course through to the most advanced specialist courses. All courses are assigned a NBFA Level (Nordic Bike Fitting Academy Level) according to the following grading system:
Level 1: First qualification – Introductory course to bike fitting, qualifying graduates to perform a basic bikefit at a professional level, primarily for road bikes.
Level 2: Advanced qualification – Building on Level 1, Level 2 courses are in-depth courses specialised in either body positioning or foot correction/saddle selection. Course participants will be qualified to apply advanced techniques and methods for individual bike fitting optimisation for road bikes (body position) and across cycle types (foot correction/saddle selection).
Level 3: Master qualification – Courses taught at the very highest level in the industry in a narrow, specialist field such as cycle type (off road bikes or Time Trial/Triathlon bikes), torque analysis or the application of video analysis. On completion, graduates will master the world’s most advanced and modern fitting techniques to achieve the best bike setup possible.

Foot Activation & Saddle Selection (Level 2; 100 IBFI credits): Any serious runner will tell you how important his running shoes are in optimising his performance and prevent discomfort and injuries. Cycling should be no different. The first part of this course will teach you the techniques for optimal foot correction (arch support and wedging).

Taking this course is a must for people (eg coaches, bike fitters, physiotherapists) working professionally with riders. It is taught over 2.5 days in English. Minimum required training/experience equivalent to Bikefit Pro. Click here for more info
Time Trial (TT)/Triathlon (Tri) (Level 3; 40 IBFI credits): Speed, aerodynamics and extended time in a fixed position on the bike are common challenges for TT riders who are trying to clock the fastest possible time as well as for Tri riders who, in addition to racing the clock, are also having to preserve energy for the run. This course teaches you to successfully address these issues when fitting a bike to a TT/Tri rider to optimise his performance. The course is suitable for fitters who as a minimum have taken Bikefit 1 (or equivalent), however, to get the full benefit you are recommended to have taken our Body Position course (or equivalent) before joining this course.

To take this course participants are reuqired to have prior training commensurate with Bikefit 1, however, to get the full benefit it is advisable to take our Body Position course in advance of signing on for this course.
