We have joined forces with RP BikeTech to offer you the ultimate course to reach your potential on the trails. We take you out on to the trails and help you fine tune your bike to find that perfect balance between bike and rider.

We break down all the overwhelming settings and dials into easy to understand information to help you walk away feeling confident in your set-up and the knowledge of how to adjust your settings for future rides.

Whether you are looking to find those extra seconds racing or are wanting to maximise your ride for comfort and enjoyment, this is the course for you.

Having the perfect set-up on your bike almost feels like you are cheating. It can make the difference between complete control and simply surviving. With so many variables with pressures, dials, components, we help you find the set-up perfected for you. We don’t just make the adjustments, we give you the information to help you fell the differences.

The course will be a constant mix of riding, testing, adjusting and learning as we guide you through everything from the most basic set-up, all the way to the most precise pressures and measurements, so you leave the day not only with the ultimate set-up but with the knowledge of what to adjust for future rides. We help you understand how even the smallest tweaks will make the biggest of differences. Learn how your position affects your ride and your settings affect your position.

We want you to get the most out of your bike, maximise your potential and find the perfect set-up between bike and body. We know bike mechanics can seem overwhelming but we breakdown all the information and record your changes to help you feel confident in your set-up. You will leave the day with a complete record of your set-up, your changes and a worksheet of all the information we cover on the day.

We want you to gain the most out of this day so we guarantee a small group of a maximum of 6 riders meaning it will be a 3:1 ratio of riders to coaches.
