SOLESTAR – the experts for highly functional insoles.

With its high performance cycling shoe insoles SOLESTAR has established itself in the professional cycling industry within only a few years. Today, the company is the insole supplier of choice for many professional cyclists and teams. What makes the SOLESTAR cycling insoles so innovative lies in the patented Stabilization-Delta design of their insoles that optimizes the ergonomics of the cyclist and thereby enhances the rider’s performance.

Behind the idea of an insole concept specifically designed for cycling stands the German sports scientist Oliver Elsenbach. Since 2003 he has been advising professional cyclists in areas of training plans, seat positioning, and individual orthopedic insoles. Through his specialized work, he recognized the potential for insoles that are specially customized for the best performance in cycling. 

Elsenbach worked closely and carefully with professional cyclists like Gerald Ciolek, Christian Knees, and André Greipel over a six-year period, coordinating several practical test series on a new insole concept for professional cyclists. This work resulted in the development of the Stabilization-Delta which is the basis of all SOLESTAR insoles. In 2010 the company SOLESTAR GmbH was founded with its headquarters in Berlin. A subsidiary in Cologne focuses on athlete support and product development.

SOLESTAR is widely established in professional cycling and currently sells in more than 30 countries worldwide.
