No Post Bevel

No Post Bevel

Typically, the sides of the rearfoot post are beveled at a 20 degree angle to facilitate shoe fit. No post bevel means that the medial and/or lateral aspect of the post will be left at 90 degrees to the supporting surface. This will increase either the supinatory torque (no medial bevel) or pronatory torque (no lateral bevel), and increase the surface contact area at the heel.
