Improve COMFORT & ALIGNMENT with a WEDGE!

 

Studies show that 96% of all cyclists are misaligned in their connection to the bicycle, decreasing comfort & efficiency.

Of these cyclists, most have what is known as a Forefoot Varus (the inside of the foot tilts upward).  This causes a misalignment as soon as you clip into a pedal as the pedal is flat.

A foot with forefoot inward angulation (AKA varus) must press down to meet the pedal, thus causing the chain reaction shown.

Lower leg rotates inward, causing the Knee to move in towards the bike frame, in the pedaling downstroke.

RESULT: A repetitive side-to-side movement of the knee.

 

A foot that is wedged ensures the knee follows a near vertical path, reducing knee strain and potential for injury.

RESULT: A neutral foot position throughout the pedaling rotation.
