The foot and ankle must allow extremely complex movements in everyday life and sports. 26 bones, 33 joints and more than 100 ligaments are responsible for this. However, when it comes to movement during cycling, this mobility is rather disadvantageous and prevents optimal power transmission to the pedal. Conventional cycling shoe insoles do not stabilize the foot or do it sufficiently. This leads to a loss of performance and comfort during the pedaling process. In addition, the foot-knee-hips axis is often not aligned, resulting in discomfort in the feet and/or knees. Ergon solves these problems with the ergonomic insole IP Pro Solestar.
The patented Solestar Stabilization Delta of the IP Pro Solestar keeps the foot in a natural neutral position and prevents inward and outward movements. The big toe base joint is lowered, the outer edge of the forefoot is raised, the ankle joint is supported – more power, greater comfort and better efficiency are the result.
Many cyclists believe that comfort underfoot and top performance are mutually exclusive. They are mistaken. The stiffest shoe is of little use if incorrect foot positions and discomfort prevent maximum pressure on the pedal with every pedaling motion. The foot is a powerhouse that can only develop its full power in an ideal position. The IP Pro Solestar supports this position perfectly.
Cyclists need stability in the foot for all aspects of cycling. In sporty mountain biking and road cycling, the IP Pro Solestar reduces rotation in the ankle and ensures optimized power transmission. In a rather loose shoe with a soft sole (as in many mountain bike disciplines), the Ergon insoles provide the necessary stability.
Feet naturally move inward and outward under load (pronation/supination). On the bike, however, these movements are biomechanically and ergonomically disadvantageous: loss of power, strain on ligaments, tendons and joints are the consequences. The IP Pro Solestar effectively prevents these movements and keep the feet stable.
Many bikers are familiar with burning feet, unpleasant tingling or pain between the toes and knee problems. These discomforts often cloud the fun of cycling and cost valuable time in competition. The Ergon insoles can significantly reduce these discomforts.
The IP Pro Solestar is constructed from three layers of different materials that complement each other perfectly. The robust surface is made of non-slip nylon fabric, at the bottom the stabilization shell made of fiberglass composite and ensures effective power transmission, and in the middle the 3-D padding is made of closed-cell orthopedic EVA foam which guarantees optimum cushioning.
Ergon has developed the IP Pro together with the renowned insole specialist Solestar. Solestar has established itself internationally in professional cycling for years with its cycling insoles and is the supplier of numerous world-class cyclists and professional teams.
