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.
