Mechanical efficiency

Feet are supported evenly and consistently on the pedal platform. Feet, ankles, knees and hips are aligned, with the knee centred over the foot. With a customised surface between the sole of the foot and the inside of the shoe, the foot receives support and greater contact with the pedal, improving efficient power delivery.

Feet and legs are misaligned while pedaling. Often the foot is not in effective contact with the inside of the shoe beneath and rolls inwards (pronates) to establish contact. The leg internally rotates and the knee is no longer centred over the pedal, increasing the risk of potential overuse injury. The delivery of power is reduced negatively impacting efficiency and performance.

Need help to treat pain?

Cycling is extremely repetitive. Foot, knee, hip and lower back pain is common. There are many changes that can be made to your bike setup – including seat height, crank length and cleat positioning as well as better support and comfort in the shoe.

A medical professional will assist in injuries and finding the right support and setup for you.
