The Foot Fit Calculator App for Cyclists: Customize Your Foot/Pedal Connection

KIRKLAND, WASHINGON – June 7th, 2017 – BikeFit, the worldwide leader in bike fitting products, announced the launch of their free mobile app for Android devices.  For the past 20 years, BikeFit’s knowledge and products increased comfort, power, and efficiency for countless cyclists.  Now, with the release of the Foot Fit Calculator, cyclists can customize the fit of their bicycle shoes to their pedals.  The application walks users through the process of figuring out the ideal pedal-to-foot connection angle and then recommends a solution to optimize foot fit.  Users will need a friend to help take the pictures and the application will do the rest!

The Pathway to Solution

Through an easy and simple procedure, the app guides users through measuring foot tilt.  The interface aids the user into position, kneeling comfortably a couch or chair away from the person measuring their feet (with their knees slightly apart and legs hanging over the chair or bench).  Next, the user only needs to have a friend take a quick picture, position the red line as explained in the directions, and then they are provided with the recommended number of Cleat Wedges needed to customize the fit of their foot.

Cleat Wedges® enable the cycling shoe to connect with the pedal naturally, by acknowledging the foot’s inherent angle. This creates a neutral foot position throughout the pedaling cycle, resulting in greater comfort, efficiency, and power.

New Heel Wedges–Better Material, Better Fit.

Finally!  We heard your concerns about our In-The-Shoe(ITS) Heel Wedges slipping and received the pictures of them electrical taped or duct-taped to the insoles of cycling shoes.  Consequently, we’ve changed the formula to improve grip between the Heel Wedge pieces.  Easier to install and remove, and they remain in place in the shoe.

Our new ITS Heel Wedges have all the benefits of the old ones:

  • Stackable in 2, 3 or 4-degree increments.
  • They do not raise the heel out of the shoe.
  • Great for that “in-between” foot tilt solution (when you are not sure if you need 2 or 3 wedges).
  • Work perfectly in conjunction with ITS-F Wedges and Cleat Wedges.
  • Allows foot to remain in its natural position in the shoe.
  • Now with grippier material.

Shoe Fit Remains the Same:

Other heel wedges create volume in the shoe, which in turn, affects your fit.  The last thing you want is to attempt to correct for a problem and create another one.  Our heel wedges naturally offset the heel tilt and allow you to stack the wedges in order to find the perfect fit.

 

When you need Heel Wedges:

  • Your heel or calcaneus is curved.
  • You may need a second ITS-F Wedge but it could increase shoe volume.
  • You feel pressure under your 1st metatarsal or bone behind the big toe.

BikeFit Pro Education Exclusively Provided by Cycle Point

BikeFit, the worldwide leader in bicycle fitting products, now offers BikeFit Pro education exclusively through CyclePoint.

Pedal Jam

Although closely tied with Cycle Point, BikeFit no longer provides educational training to become a bike fitter. We now focus exclusively on providing products and knowledge to increase riding comfort, efficiency, and power.  In addition to our amazing line of bike fitting products, we recently developed a Walkable Screw Kit, updates and changes to our iPad/iPhone Fitter App, and the free Foot Fit Calculator Android app.  The new app will help cyclists identify foot tilt, decipher the number of wedges they may need, and allow the to directly purchases the wedges they need or connect them to local BikeFit Pros and dealers.

What is Cycle Point?

Paul Swift, founder and CEO of CyclePoint, created the company prior to BikeFit, but it primarily functioned as a product design company.  Many of those designs include BikeFit products.  CyclePoint now organizes, conducts, and operates all BikeFit Pro training.  Recent and upcoming training includes California, Georgia, Washington, Oregon, Texas, and Canada!  If you would like to find out more, visit the CyclePoint website.

We are excited for what these changes mean for the future of BikeFit and CyclePoint!  With our companies combined, we can do more for numerous cyclists! Our goals are similar: aid cyclists in reducing pain, increasing power and efficiency, and in turn, make cycling more enjoyable.  We hope you look forward to the future of bike fitting!
