Everybody benefits from better-fitting, adaptable-shape insoles.
Everyone's foot is unique. The Adapt V2's adaptable position carbon arch, (re)movable meta pads, and fully moulding footbed give a customized, contoured underfoot shape for a better connection to your bike. They mitigate the movement of your foot in your shoe, gently holding your foot in one anchored position. This reduces the need to overtighten shoe dials and stabilizes your power vector joints (hips, ankles and knees). Adapt insoles are an accessibly priced underfoot upgrade that every sportsperson can benefit from.
|"Lintaman’s [adjustable arch] is made of carbon fiber and provides a remarkable amount of support, even in shoes that otherwise don’t have any built into the plate. Moreover, Lintaman says the foam body will gradually conform to the shape of your foot with no ovens required" - James Huang, Cyclingtips.com|

Why upgrade your insoles?
Out of sight, out of mind. That's really what is happening here. A well-fitting shoe feels great, but a shoes’ closing system will only adapt the shape and tightness of your shoe to the upper side of your feet. This means your foot can still slide around, and this is why you need to tighten them so much to hammer. This image shows the notable difference in shaping that the Adapt Insole (dark grey) offers over a standard (cream coloured) insole. If you're the type that tweaks shoe tightness during rides or runs, you may notice that you don't need to with Adapt insoles because they make a comfy fit a firm fit, too.
Once you upgrade your shoes underfoot fit with Lintaman Adapt insoles, you'll benefit immediately: Anywhere between 70 and 100% of your power goes to your bike through the bottom of your feet. When pedalling at 90 rpm you load and unload the soles of your feet 5400 times an hour, yet the product video you just clicked on (the 1st image) shows just how little support your standard insole is offering your foot.
Your under-foot fit is important - and worthy of an upgrade.
It’s time to wrap your whole foot in an optimal fit because well-adjusted insoles improve your athletic comfort and enjoyment.
The Adapt insole offers both Active (adaptable position carbon arch and metatarsal pads) and passive (adaptive shaping foam insoles that mould to your foot shape through use) to give you a custom-level footbed fit at a fraction of a classic custom insole's pricetag.
Adapt insoles may also aid joint alignment, stabilize your feet and reduce heel rotation while mitigating fatigue and eliminating sources of pain and hot spots during longer efforts.
Beyond helping you keep up your Watts, our upgrade insoles are among the market's lightest adaptable insole products. Weighing in at 47g in S, 58g in M, and 66g in L (before cutting down the sole to size). So, they do their part in keeping your W:Kg in check, too. For perspective: they weigh in anywhere between 50 and 130g less than most supporting insoles, and are less than a 30g weight penalty over most OEM footbeds. That's well worth the fit benefits.
Alleviate many joint, alignment, and pain issues.
Joint alignment can have a big impact on your cycling performance, comfort, and enjoyment. A well set up insole may often help those that:
- Have excessive pronation (inward) or supination (outward) tilt of the heel and foot's lower surface during walking (often accompanied by excessive inward or outward callousing)
- Walk splay-footed or pigeon-toed (Check your normal shoe's tread for excessive outer or inner wear).
- Ride with one or both knees sticking outward (valgus) or inward toward the top tube (varus),
- Scuff their cranks at the heel (nobody likes ugly cranks)
Simple, intuitive setup.
Our upgrade insoles feature an ultralight, adaptable position carbon arch and metatarsal pad. How they feel will define how you set them up, and it is simple to do with our instruction and arch tuning guide, available in English, Francais, Castellano and Deutsch. Once you've ridden 15-30 hours the soles will mould entirely to your feet.
