The Foot Fit Calculator helps you discover how to customize the fit of your cycling shoes to your bike pedals.
Do you experience foot pain? This might be the solution. A new app to analyse the tilt of your feet is now available.
Research conducted on cyclist’s feet showed that 96% of us have forefeet that are canted or tilted up to the inside (“varus“) or outward toward the outside (“valgus“). The vast majority (87%) of cyclist’s feet tilt up to the inside. Unfortunately, almost all bike pedals, shoes, and cleats take this natural tilt and force it flat. This can generate knee pain, create a foot “hotspot” (where the inner or outer side of the foot feels hot), affect cleat engagement and reduce your ability to generate power.
Measure Foot Tilt Visually
The Foot Fit Calculator quickly and easily discovers foot tilt. The instructions provided visually walk you through the process. With a friend, you’ll be able to measure your feet in just a few minutes!
Discover the Solution to Cycling Foot Pain
After measuring your foot tilt, The Foot Fit Calculator displays the recommended number of Cleat Wedges based on your foot angle. Cleat Wedges® enable bike shoes 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. The Foot Fit Calculator helps you discover the number of Cleat Wedges needed to make cycling more enjoyable!
