THE SCIENCE BEHIND OUR FIT
Rykä knows that a woman’s foot shape, muscle movement and build are all inherently different from a man’s. The "Q-angle"(quadricep angle)--the anatomical relationship between the hip and knee--measures 5-7 degrees greater for women than men. As a result, we tend to shift more weight to the outside of our feet, which leads to instability at foot strike and higher risk of injury.
Our design philosophy integrates all of our technologies into one of the most researched, women-specific fits in the industry. A complete footwear solution customized to fit the shape of a woman’s foot perfectly--with a narrower heel, roomier forefoot, increased instep volume and a more secure footbed. The result is footwear engineered to address our unique biomechanics for unsurpassed fit, comfort, cushioning and control.
