Rak-it is small and fits neatly under any saddle. It is still possible to fit a saddle bag under the saddle when a Rak-it is fitted. The transition bar fits easiliy between a Rak-it and bag. We have customers who are siccessfully taking advantage of the gains a Rak-it gives you, with saddle bags fitted.
A comment from one of our customers was :-
is rak-it easy to fit ?
Rak-it is held in place on any saddle with two small discrete brackets. Fitting only takes a few seconds and Rak-it comes with all the tools needed.
We have uploaded on the website a video describing the fitting process. I am sure you will see that it is something that anyone can do.
is rak-it going to add a lot of weight to my bike ?
Rak-it securely attaches to any saddle, ensuring the bike is firmly held to the transition rack, using magnets and still only weighs 53 grams
Coached swim sessions
do i need to be an expert swimmer to attend these sessions ?
Our coached swim sessions are aimed at anyone older the 12 years old who can swim one length of a 25m pool. Sessions are adjusted to your ability and focused on each element of the stroke, in simple to understand ways.
Do I need a lot of equipment at your coached sessions ?
Many of our sessions use simple drills to breakdown and explain good technique. Drills are easier to perform with certain basic kit. a good quality pair of fins are a big benefit. Kick boards and pull buoys we can loan on the day.
how many swimmers attend your sessions ?
This varies each session, we do however restrict numbers. We are keen to make sessions very specific to your skill level, if too many attend we are not able to give you as much individual attention we believe you should get from any coached session.
We offer individual swim analysis on top of our normal coached swim sessions, these are videoed and we go through specific areas where improvements are needed, along with example drill videos to support these imnprovements. Ask our coaches for the cost and availability.
I would like to target a particular event, can you help me with what I need to be ready for an event ?
We believe a clear target for any athlete is the only way to train, we encourage individuals to have a target. Which we are keen to understand and help with,
How does catch-it help with my stroke technique ?
Catch-it is a simple device that can be used at anytime to help remind you to relax when you are swimming. A relaxed hand position helps with relaxing your stroke. the small elastic bands subtly remind you when you swim if you are being too tense.
Great for a warm up or as a regular remider, keep them in your swim bag and use them regularly on those longer swims.
are they for any level swimmer ?
Catch-it doesn't understand how sklled you are as a swimmer. Even skilled olympic level swimmers practice drills to keep their stroke technique perfect. Catch-it can be used at anytime, allowing you to concentrate on your drill, and reminds you during your swim how your hand should be. Its like having your coach with you during the swim.
