FOOT PAIN DURING OR AFTER CYCLING
Cycling ergonomics: Foot
When it comes to cycling ergonomics, it is important that the rider is in unison with his or her bike. There are basically three contact points to which special attention must be paid: hands/handlebars, buttocks/saddle and feet/pedals. The feet and pedals play another important role: this is where you transfer the power from your legs to the road, which is why, in the best case scenario, all of the pressure from your legs should also be driven onto the pedals. Unfortunately, this is not always the case. In addition to loss of power, many cyclists complain of pain in their feet, discomfort from numbness and tingling in the toes. Your heels are affected just as much as the metatarsus or the metatarsophalangeal joint of the little toe. Inflammations are rare, but can still occur. We have developed our various Winsoles in such a way that foot pain caused by poor alignment is greatly reduced or, ideally, does not occur in the first place.
