When cycling you are always looking for the most optimal position to ride your bike as efficiently as possible. The ideal position is different for everybody and depends on a lot of factors: strength, body composition and agility, but also the type of cycling you do: mountain bike riders have different positions on their bikes than time trial specialists or triathletes.
Your feet and their position are always crucial to this process, something all elite bike fitters agree on. Without proper foot support, you run the risk of riding out of balance. This can lead to tingling feet or knee tendinitis. Bad foot placement can also cause a bad posture in the saddle, which in turn can cause pelvic instability and lower back problems.
A good bike fitting also takes into account a thorough foot and foot motion analysis. Materialise Phits Insole bike fitting experts can use your gait and foot pattern, determined using our scientifically validated footscan protocol, and predict their impact on your bike position. The material and the design from the 3D printer will provide your feet with firm and precise support. This way we can guarantee a better power transfer to the pedals, increased lower limb stability and a better saddle posture.
