New for 2017, Hase's latest footplates were designed with ergonomics and simplicity in mind. A singular reflective & adjustable velcro strap is used to secure the user into the pedal, with padded segments used to make sure the correct amount of pressure is placed onto the top of the foot. As for the plate it's self, their new design has made it so much more adjustable to the individual than any other footplate on the market. They fit an impressive range of shoe sizes, from a UK kid's size 13 to a men's size 15.5. The angle at which the foot is held in is also easily adjustable, meaning corrections for toeing in and out can be made gradually over time, rather than forcing the user into the correct placement straight away. Once all adjustments have been made, the strap can then be easily fastened and released with one hand.
The new Calf Support was redesigned from the ground up for use with Hase's new pedals. It's unique and ingenious structure provides firm and positive support for the leg, but also enables the ankle to flex naturally, allowing for a circular pedalling motion that feels completely unrestricted. This freedom of movement is made possible by an adjustable elastomer spring where the calf support meets the pedal, meaning that if the user were to close their eyes whilst pedalling (not recommended!) the only point of contact they can feel with the bike is between the foot and the pedal, there's no pressure at all on the calf that distracts from the joy of cycling.
With many of the products in the Quest 88 range it is necessary for the product to be demonstrated to ensure the correct level of support is attained. Quest 88 have Product Specialists available to provide demonstrations/assessments either at home, School, in Therapy Centres, Children's Centres or anywhere with suitable facilities. All assessments are carried out by Quest 88 staff.
