Cycling Footbeds

Foot Dynamics cycling orthotics are TRULY designed for the cycling application. Using our pillow impression kit, they are molded to what we believe to be the best model of your foot. They have a slim nylon shell with a low volume 2mm EVA top cover. The nylon shell includes a slight met pad molded into the shell to help separate the metatarsal heads and disbursement of foot pressure. Neuromas and/or pain in the balls of feet are common in cycling. Our footbeds can dramatically help with this. We have also seen and heard people often experience better power transfer. When the foot’s pressure is evenly distributed over the plantar surface, it will yield more efficient power transfer from the foot through the shoe to the pedal.

One of the biggest challenges to a cyclist’s performance is achieving the correct alignment and positioning of the foot on the pedals to the position of the knees and hips while eliminating unwanted movement and lost energy. After thousands of pedal revolutions, faulty positioning can lead to knee injury, shin splints, foot pain, and hip discomfort….all hindering performance, especially if you are a racer. Some of this faulty positioning can be caused by excessive pronation, supination, or foot rotation. Add in other factors such as leg length differences, foot structure, muscle imbalances, improper cleat position, or poor-fitting cycling shoes, and it’s not hard to see the potential for things going ‘wrong’ on the bike.

Custom foot orthotics, along with proper bike fit, cleat alignment, and the use of shims such as BikeFit’s wedge and Hogg’s Leg length shims (www.BikeFit.com), play a huge role in making sure your body is in biomechanical alignment with the bike’s mechanics. Custom foot orthotics can help re-align the foot on the pedal and assist in preventing injury down the road.

Most cycling shoes are not unlike other shoes in that they are made without much arch support at all. The inside of most shoes is lined with simple foam-like inserts that do not do much to support the arch or address other issues, such as forefoot pain, which is also common among cyclists. If the foot is resting on the bottom of the shoe without support, it will most likely be uncomfortable, and lack of support can lead to unnecessary motion of the feet, ankles, and knees, thus, an inefficient pedal stroke. The stabilizer muscles that control the motion of the foot and ankle may be overstressed as they try to control this motion– while also trying to keep the knees aligned.

The use of custom orthotics/footbeds for your cycling shoes will assist in positioning the feet in the most neutral and efficient position so that energy and power will not be wasted during pedal stroke and the likelihood of overuse injuries will be minimized. The orthotics should be designed to be comfortable and supportive, with a slender, lightweight profile to accommodate the slim, snug fit of most cycling shoes. Materials can also be selected to assist in shock absorption and temperature regulation.

Each pair of Foot Dynamics orthotics is designed to fit an individual’s needs. For example, if we are addressing tingling and numbness of the forefoot, also referred to as metatarsalgia, or sometimes in more specific situations, ‘Morton’s Neuroma’, we can easily incorporate a metatarsal pad to alleviate the discomfort. You may also want to consider stretching your shoes in areas that seem too tight.

Our Cycling Orthotic uses a narrow nylon shell with a slight transverse arch support built into it. This appropriately supports the medial longitudinal arch for efficient weight distribution and helps spread the metatarsal heads to help prevent nerve impingement and blood flow restriction. It has a breathable 2mm Eva top cover with an additional 2mm Poron forefoot cushion. This adds quality cushion under the ball of the foot only without compromising the fit of the shoes through the toes.

Sizes are available up to a men’s size 15.

Note: If you are a cyclist suffering from persistent pain, please seek professional medical advice from a physician working with cyclists. Many factors contribute to injury, and orthotics are not meant to cure all possible conditions.

What Sets Foot Dynamics Orthotics by Mail Apart from Other Labs?

It’s simply our foot impression process. Other mail order companies use a foam “crush box” to capture the foot shape. This process, while used by some medical practioners, often captures a “compensated” or poorly aligned foot position. This is especially true if not done by a skilled technician. As a result, the orthotics may not correct your foot biomechanics properly.

Our unique A.C.T.™ pillow system is easy to use and insures an accurate foot model time after time. Foot Dynamics fabricates orthotics for a number of nationally respected sports medicine and physical therapy clinics. All of them use this same A.C.T.™ process to make the foot impressions. This process has proven itself over the past 16 years with thousands of successful patient results. (Click here to view “Impression Kit Instructions”)

“Yeah, we’re very happy. It seems counterintuitive that the most effective of the orthotics I’ve had came from the kit you sent. I’ve twice before had running orthotics prescribed at a sports medicine clinic and they helped somewhat but didn’t completely do the trick. And things happened like the layer on top separated from the plastic, or the bladder popped in the case of gel orthotics. Now I’m logging 50-mile weeks of running in addition to 100 miles of biking, swimming, and weights (getting ready for an Ironman®). I keep thinking surely the old Achilles tendonitis or runner’s knee that I had are going to make themselves known, but not a twinge in a year and a half. I refer quite a lot of people to you. I hope they’re buying.”
