Whatever your preferred style, cross country skiing requires balance, endurance and well fitting boots. Footbalance custom insoles customize your XC boots for superior fit and comfort while supporting your feet properly for better balance, ski control and endurance.
Misalignment in the feet and ankles affects overall body alignment and skiing efficiency, negatively affecting weight distribution, control and power transfer.
Unsupported, misaligned feet turn inwards, making it harder to position the hips forward. The force of each push off or kick collapses the arches, especially in stiff racing boots. Uneven weight distribution along the feet impairs balance and can cause numbness or forefoot pain, and the feet fatigue more easily.
In skating it is harder to get sufficient power for each push off, and it is more difficult to get over the ski to make it flat and fast.
The classic stride kick requires more energy, and it’s harder to achieve an efficient body position. During the glide, the skis are always edging a little, slowing you down.
