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"
