The idmatch Smart Caliper is a sophisticated anthropometrical gauge endowed with an internal algorithm which delivers accurate measurements and scientific results in just a few seconds. Based on a series of digital sensors, its micro-processor is able to automatically identify the ideal saddle type for any cyclist.

Step 1
Intertrochanteric distance measurement

The intertrochanteric distance is the space between the two big femur tuberosities; these two perch points must be perfectly matched to the seat surface and are a crucial factor in establishing a cyclist’s ideal seated position.

Step 2
Thigh-diameter measurement

Measuring the upper diameter of the thigh and comparing it to the intertrochanteric distance allows us to establish the best saddle shape for each single cyclist.

Step 3
Pelvic rotation measurement

Knowing the pelvic tilt/rotation helps us to know what kind of saddle will offer the most comfortable ride.

Once taken, all these various measurements will tell us to a great degree of accuracy what saddle will suit the physique and riding preferences of each individual cyclist.
