These cleat wedges are designed by Steve. The vast majority of riders need some degree of wedging so that their feet, ankles, knees and hips align well during the pedaling action. Humans have not evolved to maintain a fixed relationship for long periods with an apparatus like a bicycle, and oftentimes help is necessary to assure optimal alignment during the thousands of repetitions of the pedaling action. First and foremost, Steve recommends that you use wedges in conjunction with arch support.
With arch support in place, a majority of riders will need from 0 – 3 wedges on each side with only a tiny minority needing more than this. You will need to experiment to determine the best number for you and it may be a different number on each side. The average is 3 wedges per rider in total, though individual cases vary widely. Our cleat wedges are made from plastics that are free of heavy metals.
These cleat wedges are designed to fit 3-hole cleat systems like Look Keo and Shimano SPD-SL. They are available in two different angles, 1 degree and 2 degree, and two different quantities, 20 or 40.
We also supply 2-bolt wedges, heel wedges, in-shoe wedges and speedplay wedges.
