Your riding position on the bike is a consequence of the difference between the height of the saddle and the one of the handlebar. This value is the handlebar-to-saddle delta and, according to the difference (delta), it is matched to one of the three proposed categories:
- DELTA HIGH if the height difference between the upper central part measured on the anatomical centre of the saddle (the point where the saddle is 72 mm wide) and the top of the handlebar is more than 10 cm for road bike and more than 5 cm for mountain bike.
- DELTA MEDIUM if, measuring the height difference between the saddle and the handlebar, the values are between 5 cm and 10 cm for road bike and between 5 cm and 2 cm for mountain bike.
- DELTA LOW when the handlebar-to-saddle delta is lower than 5 cm for road bike and 2 cm for mountain bike.
