What is the tool that the athlete uses the most in trail running? What is the tool that they give the least importance to on a daily basis, as opposed to food, sleep or training? The foot!

With this in mind runners hunt for the small details to make up big results... the infamous search for marginal gains that can make the difference between a new PB or winning at the UTMB.

Globally, Sidas work with elite athletes competing at the highest levels within their field and young upcoming athletes such as Team Sidas Matryx. 

An elite Trail team with big ambitions and "small" details

Team Matryx® is aiming for the top of the trail. That's good news, so are we! Through the partnership with this young and ambitious team, composed of the most talented trail runners in France, we want to put our expertise at the service of performance. This by providing these athletes with a global foot care solution including a new range of socks and customised insoles perfectly adapted to their practice.

Because, even if we tend to forget, the foot is the runner's fundamental instrument. And even more so at high levels. This is the reason for our partnership with Team Matryx® who, in their quest for the smallest marginal gain, do not want to leave anything to chance. Especially not the comfort of their feet, because that is where the pleasure and performance of trail running comes from.
A global solution for the care of runners' feet
Often, in running, bad reflexes have been observed: restricting foot comfort to the choice of shoe alone. In reality, feeling good in your trainers is the result of a global solution, an alchemy between shoes, socksinsoles and all the by-products that make the difference. The athletes we support already have the footwear, we provide them with the rest. The benefits of a global solution adapted to the needs of the athlete are twofold: performance and injury prevention.
What is the key to performance?
The key driver of performance for our athletes, both globally and the UK, whether at the international, national or local level is...
Comfort! Good socks, a good footcare routine, and an adapted insole are the promise of pain-free feet, with a significant reduction in the risk of blisters and injuries. The runner can then focus solely and serenely on their effort, the fluidity of the stride, and enjoyment... that's where performance is born!
