Cleat & Shoe Fitting
Cleats & Shoes study
Fee: 60.- CHF
- Athletes of all levels
principle of the study:
Proper alignment of cleats and shoes is essential to optimize the transmission of foot thrust and therefore maximize your pedal strokes. A bad alignment between the foot and the pedal can produce an incorrect movement with a risk of overloading the tendons and joints of the whole lower limb.
Since the feet are locked, the positioning of the cleats is therefore millimetric. This is an operation of the utmost importance, not only for the efficiency and comfort of pedaling, but also for the harmonization of the entire biomechanical assembly “foot-shoe-pedal”.
During this session, our goal is to find the perfect match with the pedal axle. At Bike1, we use a Cleat Fit laser from IdMatch to report the position of the pedal axle under the shoe with extreme precision. A goniometer disk applied to the cleat, allows us to verify the distance to the heel and its rotation in relation to the longitudinal axis of the shoe.
Our Cleat and Shoe Alignment service is suitable for cyclists who are confident in their riding position and are looking to check the alignment or install a new pair of cleats and shoes. In case you are experiencing back, shoulder or neck pain, we recommend the Complete Postural Study.

PROCESS OF THE SESSION:
- Beginning interview: We discuss to understand your needs and what you are looking for to better guide you in your saddle selection.
- Measurement of your feet and fitting of the cleats: We take exact measurements of your feet (length, width, distance from heel to the head of the first metatarsal). Then we measure the supination of the forefoot and the alignment of the foot-knee-hip axis with a laser system. Your cleats are adjusted with the Cleat Fit laser goniometer.
- Adjustments of the cleats and shoes: At the end of the session, we perform for you the necessary adjustments or installations of your new cleats.
included in this service:
- Coffee, tea, drink
Please bring your shoes.
“Whatever your level or riding style, cleat and shoe alignment is essential for a safe and comfortable ride. After this session, you will leave with your cleats and shoes perfectly adjusted, allowing you to maximize your pedaling and visibly improve your performance.
