HERE'S WHY YOU NEED INDOOR CYCLING SHOES



How would you like to get more out of your Indoor Cycling workouts?

How would you like to take your cycling experience to a whole new level?

If you answered, "YES" to our 2 questions and you are still riding without Indoor Cycling shoes...we have 3 words for you…
Indoor. Cycling. Shoes.


That’s right ladies, don’t you love it when the answer to life’s problem are shoes?
Gentlemen … sorry for instigating :)

WHY? 
Well that's simple ... Indoor Cycling shoes allow you to ride stronger, harder, smarter and more powerfully than without.  
You will also have more FUN.
BOOM.


Register higher watts, generate more power, recruit more muscles, and burn more calories by making the switch to shoes that clip.


Most cycling shoes have a stiff sole, which prevents uncomfortable bending of your foot during pedaling. The stiff sole ensures that you move the pedal rather than just flex the shoe. This rigidity also enables you to transfer more power to each pedal stroke.  "Clipping in” helps you learn to build a smooth circular pedal stroke, ankle through the rotation, and reduce quad dominance. You are able to more effectively execute all four quadrants of the pedal stroke and as a result can prepare for the power phase of your pedal stroke (from 12-3 O'Clock).   Pulling up with your heel at the back part of your pedal stroke activates the hamstrings and engages your glutes.   Cycling shoes give a whole new meaning to..."If you don't squeeze your A$$ nobody else will"


“Indoor cycling shoes give me the support and rotation control that I didn’t realize I needed. Using my standard running shoes seemed adequate, but once I tired out a class with the spin shoes, I noticed a significant change. My performance, endurance , motion and control was significantly improved which resulted in a better workout.”

Here's more good news...Indoor Cycling shoes last a long time.  
Unlike athletic shoes that wear out every 3-6 months, your Indoor Cycling shoes will last you up to 10 years or more!

REPEAT...
Indoor Cycling shoes allow you to ride stronger, harder, smarter and more powerfully than without.  
You will also have more FUN.
BOOM.
