When cycling, the power of the legs is directly transferred through the pedals with each revolution. The placement of the pedals plays a decisive role in the power transfer efficiency. The ball of the foot must be positioned exactly above the axis of the pedal. Additionally, when viewing from directly in front of the rider or behind, the placement of the pedal should form a line from the axis of the pedal to the knee to the hip.
The TP1 makes specifically orientating your cleats simple by following three basic adjustments. The first being the adjustment of the longitudinal orientation, next the Q-factor, and finally (excluding Speeedplay pedals) is the foot angle. All steps are explained in detail in the included manual and comprise the main guide to ergonomically positioning your cleats.
Many cyclists still believe that your feet cannot be both comfortable and produce the best possible power transmission. This is a misconception. The stiffest carbon sole is of little use if discomfort prevents maximum pressure on the pedal with every pedal stroke. The foot is a power center that can only develop its full power in an ideal, comfortable position.
Our TP1 Cleat Tool effectively helps you to avoid incorrectly applied loads. Numb and burning feet are the most common complaints that can quickly take away the fun of cycling. A misaligned cleat placement can also be partly responsible for knee, hip or back pain.
Not only is every foot different, every cycling shoe also has a slightly different design. No matter which shoe you choose, the TP1 allows you to customize the cleats to fit your specific needs.
Every cyclist knows that once you buy new cycling shoes, the cleats have to be precisely mounted. It’s very rare that done without any guidance, the fit is perfect on the first try. With the TP1 Cleat Tool you not only save time, but gain a pace of mind with a proper set up right away. This also allows you to easily transfer the fit from old shoes to the new ones.
Not only do recreational riders appreciate the ease of using the TP1, professional teams and bike fitting specialists from all over the world have also relied on this tool for many years.
The included manual provides easy step by step instructions to find the ideal cleat placement. The TP1 fits all shoe sizes and is available for five different pedal systems.
“The TP1 Cleat-Tool makes it easier to find the correct cleat position and is also helpful when transferring the setting to a second pair of shoes.“”
