How do Cleat Wedges Help Reduce Cycling Pain?
Recent studies show 96% of all cyclists are misaligned in their connection to the bicycle, decreasing comfort, and efficiency.
Due to the fact that the front of the foot is where pedal contact is made when cycling, 96% of cyclists who clip in flat-footed are misaligned. All conventional pedal systems require a cyclist to clip in flat-footed. This predisposes cyclists to mechanical defects in their pedaling stroke.
The lower leg rotates inward causing the knee to move in towards the bike frame during the pedaling downstroke. Pressure may be felt toward the outside of the foot when a varus tilt is present in the forefoot.
2. Increased potential for injury
The Knee follows a near-vertical path with Wedge(s) added. The foot/pedal connection point is improved.
The patented Cleat Wedge places the foot in a neutral position throughout the pedaling cycle.
More power and efficiency with less potential for injury.
Wedges fill the gap of the foot to meet the pedal.
