Varus Tilt Cleat Wedge

Type: Wedge
Vendor: BikeFit

Description:

Research conducted on cyclist's feet showed that 96% of us have forefeet that are canted or tilted up to the inside inward ("varus") or outward toward the outside ("valgus").  The vast majority (87%) of cyclist's feet tilt up to the inside.  Unfortunately, almost all cycling shoes, cleats and pedals 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) and diminish your ability to generate power.   

Cleat Wedges® enable the cycling shoe 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 and power.   An illustration depicting foot and knee alignment before and after applying Cleat Wedges can be seen here.
