Sidas Custom Cycling Footbeds

We're obsessed with feet. A well supported foot will improve pedalling and comfort.

The Footbeds

The Sidas custom footbed is a highly personalised interface between the weight and power of your body, and the sole of the cycle shoe and pedal. A custom footbed can dramatically influence comfort, stability and power. Extra re-reinforcement Aand forefoot posting can be added for high mileage and powerful riders (The Sidas PRO Footbed) and riders with a foot physiology that requires extra support.An appointment takes approximately 45 mins to 1 hour for one pair of fully custom Conform'able inserts, and you can get a 10% discount on a second pair using the original mould. Please bring your cycling shoes so the original footbed can be used as a template.


There are two Sidas Footbed options:


Standard:
A mould of the foot is made in its neutral position and the footbed is trimmed to fit the shoe, this option works best with internal or external wedges.

Ultra Pro:
A much stiffer version, as used by Astana Pro Team

Saddle height and position optimisation is only possible when a cyclist's feet are correctly supported

A Cyclist's Feet

Cyclefit has always been obsessed with foot control; a well supported foot can:

  • Reduce discomfort and improve knee tracking
  • Stabilise the rider on the saddle
  • Improve pedalling dynamics and foot symmetry.
  • Improve power output

A Sidas custom footbed is moulded and made at Cyclefit and will primarily seek to reflect your foot structure to support your foot in its neutral position in the shoe.

We have found over 14 years at Cyclefit that almost everyone responds positively to foot support in their cycling shoes. Many issues such as 'hot-foot' or knee-alignment, foot-stability, numbness and comfort can be assisted or corrected with a well made custom footbed.

"The big revelation has been the new orthotics, already covered just over 1000kms with them and it’s a world away from what I was used to. I just wished I came to you much earlier now! Nick B"

  • "A highly personalized and very friendly service, giving good advice and adjustments that are helpful whatever level of cyclist you are."

    MJ

    Cyclist

  • "Cyclefit offers an in-depth and highly personalised approach to bike sales. Whatever your riding discipline (for me it’s road, gravel and MTB) the team in Covent Garden will find the right build for you. All this is built around a pro level bike fit and detailed component selection. Add to this the important items often overlooked beyond the bike itself such as shoes, insoles and saddle pressure mapping and it’s a full service operation."

    Self-confessed MAMIL

  • "I'm new to cycling so needed some support on finding a bike that would be right for me. Julian couldn't have been kinder or more supportive, he took time to find out what I wanted from my cycling and then looked closely at my physical structure to ensure that the bike is a comfortable fit for me. It really is a 5 star service and far exceeded my expectations."

    RM

    New Cyclist

  • "Rode my standard Box Hill loop this morning with the temp shims and more thought to position. Felt more connected and compact on the bike. Fastest ride of the year, picked up close to a km/per hour despite crappy wet pot holed roads, a ton of traffic and a couple of nights out Thu/Fri."

    Seven Evergreen SL

  • "Very very personalised service. You arrive, they expect you, greet you by first name, have checked your file from past visits and set out very clearly what the process will be, what issues they're looking to address and how and they are happy to take the time to walk you through everything in layman's terms. Almost any professional service entity could learn a lot from how Cyclefit works. "
