Mík.Fit was founded and is run by Australian Biomechanical Podiatrist, Mick Habgood (BSc BAppSc). His goal is simple: To design the finest fully customised foot orthotics for cycling in the world.
Mick’s passion might be cycling but his career is largely due to his four ski seasons as the Podiatrist for one of the UK’s biggest ski retailers. Static sports require different solutions and it forced him to think outside the box and develop his protocol for improving foot function and performance within the ski boot. The similar foot function experienced in cycling to skiing is the simple reason he’s focusing on what he loves doing today.
Mick is currently the Biomechanical Podiatrist of professional UCI team EF Pro Cycling and continues to work with British Cycling in both their Olympic and Paralympic squads. Over the years, Mick has worked with athletes from British Sprint Kayaking, the Long-Track Japanese Olympic Cycling team as well as athletes from Team Dimension Data, Team Ineos and BMC Racing to name a few.

Trek Emonda. It’s mega stiff and lightweight with beautiful construction and just makes sense where he lives. However, if you’re going to go purely for style and simplicity, then his trusty Tokyo Bike is never too far away.
That’s easy… the one that fits you feet the best.
