"These were, for me, one of the things that made one of the biggest differences on my ride," says Chris.
16 days of racing, 200 miles a day, constantly on his feet, and it was the little things, like having the carbon fiber arch support of Tread Labs insoles and the energy return that made all the difference in the end.
"As somebody who is constantly on the move running, riding, hiking, I'm always looking for those little micro-improvements that can make my experience better."
A Hidden "Hack" for Upgraded Performance
One of Chris's favorite features of Tread Labs insoles is that they come in multiple arch heights, helping to customize the fit to your foot.
"Honestly, I think that [Tread Labs insoles] are something that everyone should try. For me, this felt like a bit of a mystery, and after using them I can fully say that this is probably one of the biggest advantages you can have with any type of endurance experience."
Dash Thin insoles’ 1.25mm thick, 100% carbon fiber arch supports are a game changer when it comes to improving biomechanics, delivering superior energy return, boosting performance, and minimizing injury risk. Finished off with a 3mm thick, ventilated full length top cover, Dash Thin insoles fit perfectly in cycling shoes.
