/Footbalance Teams Up With Tad Hughes Custom Fit Studio

We are pleased to announce a partnership with Tad Hughes Custom Bike Fit Studio, a Houston, Texas- based independent bike fit oasis offering dynamic, biomechanical, motion-capture bike fittings performed by nationally-recognized bike fitter, Tad Hughes. The Footbalance Recommendation System (FRS) will enhance customized fit options available to cyclists and triathletes in the Texas area.

Tad Hughes himself says, "Within the specialty of professional bike fitting, what separates the good from the great is one’s ability to work with the foot and pedal interface, the cornerstone of bike fit.  Footbalance's system of diagnosing, assessing and producing a truly custom footbed formed to nuances of the client's individual feet is a game changer. Their new cycling specific products will allow us to correct challenges associated with client's performance, comfort and other biomedical irregularities at a reasonable cost.”

We love Tad's philosophy about why custom fits are so important, because it is so in line with our own custom footbed attitude:

  • A proper bike fit will optimize your comfort and riding efficiency.  

     
  • With a motion capture dynamic bike fit your range of motion, personal geometry and riding goals are scientifically analyzed for maximum results.   

     
  • Bike positioning can maximize power output and tailor aerodynamics. 

     
  • A professional bike fit will promote recovery and prevent injury.

 



We agree completely!!

In fact, Footbalance North America's President and Managing Director, Matt Kaplan says, "Tad Hughes choosing Footbalance as his custom footbed of choice really validates the performance of Footbalance among cyclists and triathletes. We’re happy to have the support of the most elite bike fitters in the business.”
