The IP3 Solestar insole stabilizes your foot, supports efficient movement, transfers leg power into propulsion and prevents discomfort.
Patented stabilization design – The patented Solestar stabilization design keeps the foot in a neutral pedaling position, preventing the foot from rolling inward or outward. This means: The metatarsophalangeal joint of the big toe is lowered (1), the outer edge of the forefoot is raised (2), the ankle joint is supported (3) – resulting in more control, more comfort and better performance.
Full speed ahead – Many cyclists believe that you cannot have both comfort of the foot and the best possible power transfer. This is not the case. The stiffest shoe is of little use if it places the foot in an incorrect positions and results in discomfort with every pedal stroke. This pain response will decrease the maximal power transfer. The foot is a power center that can only transfer its full power in an ideal position. The IP3 supports this perfectly.
Optimal step – Efficient power transfer while cycling requires foot stability. While mountain biking or road cycling, our insoles reduce rotation in the ankle joint. This ensures an optimal position for power transfer through the pedal stroke. The IP3 gives additional support even in a typical casual style mountain bike shoe with a soft sole.
Ergonomic Approach – Feet naturally move inwards and outwards under stress (pronation/supination). On a bicycle, however, these movements are biomechanically and ergonomically disadvantageous. This movement causes a loss of strength, adds strain on the ligaments, tendons and joints. The IP3 effectively prevents this and keeps the feet stable.
Perfect complement – Three layer sole structure – The IP3 is constructed of three layers of different materials that structurally complement each other. The surface area is made of antibacterial carbon fabric, the bottom stabilization shell is made of fibre-reinforced plastic that ensures effective power transmission, and the middle layer is a 3-D padding made of closed-cell EVA foam that guarantees optimum damping.
World-renowned – Professionals swear by Solestar cycling insoles – Ergon has developed the IP3 together with the renowned insole specialist Solestar. Solestar has established itself worldwide in professional cycling with its cycling shoe insoles and is the supplier of numerous professional cyclists and teams.
Antibacterial – Hygienic approach – The IP3 also has a hygienic approach with its surface area being made of an antibacterial carbon fabric. This fabric supports the best possible hygienic foot climate, even during the longest cycling tours.
