My Heels Hurt

    Im wondering if anyone is getting beaten up/sore heels from the curve of the Bamboo GT deck???

    I ride a few days a week and typically go out for an hour+. By the time i'm about halfway through the ride, my heels hurt.

    I recently bought a pair of Vans Old School Pro's High Tops to cushion my heels...not much help, although a little better.

    Im thinking about switching to a carbon deck to get a flat surface.

    Does anyone have any human fixes to achy heels?

    I have a carbon and the whole of my rear foot gets sore, even when I'm putting most of my weight on the front. I assumed it was just from absorbing the vibration from the board so I tried riding in a pair of running shoes but that was actually worse.

    I also wear the pro vans high tops with the ultracush insoles. I added the following under the insoles which helps. It doesn't take away all the soreness but I definitely think it helps.

    The carbon is even worse because it's such a stiff board, the Bamboo at least absorbs some of the vibes. All I can suggest is maybe get gel heel pads or gel insoles for your trainers. I use them in my running trainers because of an old broken bone in my heel and they do help. Either that or it's change heel position on the board or a deck swap.

    Can you switch a bamboo gt deck for a gtx deck?

    Yes, the GTX will accommodate all the BGT's electronics easily, the GTX is routed and therefore flexier than the GT (which is already pretty flexy). I have both and find the GTX the better ride.
