WN'ING IS THE GREATEST FEELING IN THE WORLD!
Sue Butler takes the mtb WN over World 24 hour pro Rebecca Rusch in OR.
If you check our history, you will note we worked with, coached Rusch on her pedal stroke for years, getting her to focus on things that even got her a few worlds, then "S" a major bike company put her on their pay role!
There is no better way to make a point about fits than real results.
Sue Butler is a WN user! Sue made a statement!

1st - ever XTERRA Philippines Championship!
Vanlandingham took the lead three kilometers into the run part of the race after riding and running side-by-side with Renata Bucher for a large portion of the run and biking part of the race. Vanlandingham said she got through the most difficult part of the race because of the support of locals who watched and supported the participants.
“You just got so much energy from the cheering of the community,” said Vanlandingham. “The kids who watched the bike and run part of the race were chanting and cheering. It’s great to come to a place like the Philippines.”
Vanlandingham’s winning time was 2:31:39, nearly two minutes ahead of Bucher who finished in 2:33:35.

When Kate came to us her hips where all jacked up! She had been fitted by the so called tri fit pros? After we fixed her, Kate started laying down some WN Fast bike times!
Warriner was the first woman out of T1 and onto the bike course. It was a lead that she would not relinquish during the 112 mile bike ride. Warriner finished the ride in 5:10:39. Kate Bevilaqua (WN Precison) rode a 5:11:55 to be in second place at the end of the ride and Belinda Harper, making her pro debut, was in third after her 5:18:11 split. Both Lawn and Carfrae flatted during the ride.

In running & jogging, the walking pattern is modified slightly by adding a phase of nonsupport.
In running the foot is estimated to about 3 times the body weight.
In running as walking, the movements of the leg & foot follow a sequence. At a certain phase the rearfoot is positioned in a slight inversion before heel contact; followed by slight plantar-flexion motion as the forefoot moves to the ground.
Many times there deformities. For example excessive pronation during gait. Meaning excessive foot mobility, which can increase the stresses to structures and fascial.
Now think of cycling, it is not total weight bearing. You heel never makes contact with the pedal. Think of your bike shoe, excessive foot mobility causes increased stresses to structures and fascial. Even when semi-weight bearing upon a saddle, excessive foot mobility can cause issues through the whole human linked chain.
Having a pretty pedal stroke will not make a difference if you
can't put the foot where it needs to be!
The lower leg might seem easy to understand, but it's not. Get a fit and we will teach you how to best transfer through all phases of the pedal stroke.
