Why Inserts will HELP optimise your cycling
SPECIAL TOUR DE FRANCE OFFER – 30% OFF!
Cycling is typically known as a low weight bearing sport however, a cyclist can still apply forces of up to three times their body weight while out of the saddle on a climb. With pedals turning at upwards of 5000 revolutions an hour, improving the relationship between the foot and the pedal to maximize performance makes sense, right?
A cycling orthotic helps improve the biomechanical alignment of the lower limb and foot to achieve a more linear cycling motion. It achieves this by reducing tibial rotation or twisting of the foot whilst in the cycling shoe. The orthotic supports the foot to allow it to become a more rigid lever and enable optimum power transfer from shoe to pedal.
Cycling orthotics are custom made carbon fibre insoles that are specifically designed for cycling. They also have the ability to reduce forefoot pressure and pressure on the toes by appropriately re-distributing the forces throughout foot. This can very effective to eliminate that painful burning sensation cyclists get in their feet when they ride.
Cycling shoes are totally unlike any other shoe, consequently a cycling orthotic has a very different prescription. It is very specific and must also fit the confines of the cycling shoe. They are made from carbon fibre which is both light weight and extremely tough.
Cycling orthotics are different for every shoe and designed to meet each person’s individual needs. It is important that you bring in your cycling shoes to the consult as they will be needed for our podiatrist, Tom to assess and tailor the orthotics to the inside of your shoe for maximum comfort and performance.
