Abstract (en)

[origin: FR2775424A1] The invention concerns a cycling footgear comprising a locking toeclip (4) designed to co-operate with an adapted bicycle pedal (not shown) and directly mounted removable on the sole (2) by means of a rigid insert (5) with adjustable positioning, integrated to said sole (2) and on which insert (5) said toeclip (4) is mounted with fixing means (6). The invention is characterised in that the insert (5) for fixing the toeclip (4) is made integral with the sole (2) via a plate reinforcing (7) the sole (2) through which it passes and is directly mounted by being bonded on the inner surface thereof, to constitute a subassembly whereon is directly mounted fixed a mounting innersole (8) after an upper (3) peripheral rim (3a) of the footgear (1) has been inserted, whereof the thickness (e) defines a fixing engagement zone (9), wherein is housed, in the metatarsal zone, the insert (5) with substantially matching thickness, so as to be located as close as possible to a cyclist's foot to optimise the efficiency of his effort on a pedal.
