Lemond Bike Fit Systems Wedges



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 below

If you use a modern clip-in pedal system you may be exposing yourself to potential injury unless the foot/shoe/pedal interface is customised to your physiological requirements. Approximately 96% of the population has what is known as a forefoot tilt. This is where the front of your foot is not flat but rather has an angle or tilt. Modern clip-in pedal systems do not accommodate this tilt, instead forcing the foot into an unnatural flat position. The body compensates for this with a lateral (side to side) motion of the knee during the pedal cycle. The result of increased lateral knee movement over time will cause pain and injury in the knee and any of the above symptoms.
