Insole Technology

The insole is the vital interface between the rider’s foot and the stiff power-transferring sole.
The insole is instrumental in keeping the rider’s heel properly aligned to maintain stability and comfort while maximizing power transfer.

Custom-Fit Insole

Our Custom-Fit Insole can be personalized for each rider’s foot. The shape of the sole is unique not only to the rider, but can also be customized to the differences between their right and left feet. Custom molding more evenly distributes pressure in important pedal zones and balances power transmission. Custom-fi t soles are also much more effective in the plantar area of the foot than ready-made insoles. The end result is greatly improved comfort and reduced stress on long rides.
