Cleat & Shoe Fitting

Cleats & Shoes study 

Fee: 60.- CHF

Duration: 30mn

Ideal for:

  • 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:​

  • 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.

idmatch high precision

At Bike1, we use the Idmatch Bike Lab technology developed by Ergoview Selle Italia: a high-precision biomechanical analysis system, equipped with a 3D camera and a computer-controlled simulator. The revolutionary IdMatch concept, is acclaimed for its accuracy and speed of execution by leading industry names.

 
IdMatch defines the perfect dimensions of your ideal bike in three steps. In the first step, the software allows you to insert essential information about your athlete profile (typology, level, accidents, physical ailments.. etc). It is an innovative system that is based on both your anthropometric measurements and your physical condition. It then detects the junction points of the joints without using a marker, thus excluding any risk of human error in their positioning. As a final step, the software records and measures the rider’s reactions on the bike in real time, then communicates with the simulator to set the new suggested position.
