MOTO Urban Pedal
The pedals are one of the three points of contact between rider and bicycle. The more efficient this interface, the better the rider’s ability to convert muscle power into propulsion. This is why clipless pedals are used in competitive cycling, but these are not practicable for everyday use. Conventional platform pedals generally fail to provide optimum power transmission, and urban cyclists know how painful it is when your expensive leather-soled shoes or high heels slide off the pedals and you hit your shin.
MOTO's pedals are simple and beautiful. The fact that it’s the second time that we’ve been nominated for the German Design Award clearly highlights that. The reflective MOTOs already received a coveted prize at the Eurobike Award in 2014, which was a great honour. This year, function and technical innovation are the main focus of our Reflex pedal, so we’re all the more delighted – it seems the design of the new MOTO pedal is just as convincing. Even just the nomination itself for this year’s German Design Award is an acknowledgement accompanying us on our journey.
“The 15 millimetre-thin MOTO Urban Pedal is made for everyday use. A griptape ensures secure grip even when the pedal is wet, or whilst cycling with leather soles. Sharp pins, notorious for causing injuries when slipping off, are also replaced for a smooth ride. The 160-gram pedal consists of two supporting decks made out of glass-fibre reinforced plastic, all tightly encompassed in a wooden frame. At MOTO Bicycles, we ensure that only the necessary materials are used, and that a good balance is found between product benefits, environmental and economic factors.”
“Enough with the boring yellow reflectors from last millennium: stylish reflective tapes have taken their place in ensuring improved visibility. The Moto Reflex pedal has already made a breakthrough with the EuroBike Award 2014. The plastic housing is nice and light. A non-slip contact surface ensures optimal power transmission even without biker boots.”
