Cleat wedges are used to correct foot pronation, increase proprioception and provide better stability and control while cycling. They are also used to indirectly alter knee angle to reduce lateral or medial knee pain associated with non vertical leg tracking.
Cleat wedges angle the rider’s shoe/foot by means of changing the angle between cleat and shoe. Each wedge offers 1 degree of tilt and multiple cleat wedges can be used to achieve the desired angle.
Wedges are best fitted during a bike fit session. However, they can also be fitted judiciously by riders themselves providing the exercise is done in a controlled manner, or for those who have had a bike fit and know the desired configuration.
