Podoactiva, Movistar Team keep riding around the world together
08 July 2021

Two leading companies continue their partnership

La compañía líder en podología renueva como proveedor oficial de plantillas del único equipo español en el UCI WorldTour.

World-leading podology brand Podoactiva remains a Movistar Team provider of insoles and podological services during the 2021 season. Following a difficult season for the team and everyone around the world, due to the hardest moments of the COVID-19 pandemic, this contract extension reinforces the confidence between both parties after great feedback since the beginning of their collaboration.

Fully integrated into the top-of-the-line technical and medical staff of the Movistar Team, the experienced professoinals from Podoactiva work with the men’s and women’s programs of the only Spanish team with a UCI WorldTour license, taking care of their feet’s health with services and treatments and putting Podoactiva’s facilities at their disposal.

The Movistar Team riders have also undergone biomechanical studies on their footprint, carried out with patented technologies which allowed them obtaining a 3D reproduction of the foot’s anatomy, as well as detecting anomalies and preventing injuries with a correct analysis of their footsteps. Both the men’s and women’s team also enjoy custom insoles from Podoactiva, produced following their scans and fully adapted to their gestures on the bike, which help with the transmission of force, improve breathability and increase comfort for the rider, amongst many other benefits.

The video above sums up the partnership and the work together with words from Movistar Team rider Iván García Cortina, who got his new, custom insoles just before the Tour de France at Podoactiva’s Andorra clinic; Víctor Rodríguez Rielves, biomechanic for the team; and Javier Alfaro, technical director for Podoactiva.
