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"

What our clients say

  • "Thanks very much Phil. Did an 80 mile sportive yesterday on the road bike - perfect set up thanks; I've never been so comfortable, and no after effects! Cheers, Ian "

    Ian T.

    Time-Triallist (70+)

  • "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."

  • "The personal service from both Phil and Julian is second to none. They have such a wealth of experience in fitting that they can almost tell at a glance if something is just a little off. It felt as though it didn't matter how long it took to get the best position possible - even for an amateur cyclist like myself. Can't recommend them enough."

  • "Julian was very knowledgeable and explained the fitting process very well. He came highly recommended and i completely agree. Very happy with the service. Instantly felt better on the bike. The pain i had in my knee went away right away. "
