We recommend using a clipless pedal system with our bikes. Picture 1. Clipless, or often called “clip-in”, pedal systems ensure that the foot cannot slip off the pedal. They are also effective in improving pedaling efficiency, by allowing you to push and pull on the pedals. This guarantees a more fluid pedaling style. A further advantage is that the ball of the foot is positioned over the axle of the pedal. This prevents accidental toe overlap with the front wheel when cornering.
Clip-in pedal systems operate in a similar way to the systems used on skis. The rider clicks into the locking mechanism of the pedal with the front of the cleat. With single sided pedals you need to flip the pedal to the correct side with the toe of your shoe before clipping in. Many pedals are double sided which eliminates the need to do this. The shoe clicks into the pedal with a clearly audible and noticeable “click”. The shoes is then disengaged from the pedal, on all systems, by twisting your heel outwards. In order to practice getting in and out of the pedals safely lean against a wall or get a helper to support you while you do it.
There are often significant technical differences between the various pedal systems. However, there are some fundamental rules for adjusting pedals which apply to all models:
Always mind the correct torque for cleats given in the manufacturers manual.
