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.
In April MOTO proudly presented the Viki Gomez "BMX Flatlander of the year 2013" signature pedal. Now we are proud to show, what Vicky developed, riding our MOTO Pedals: a next level pedal trick called MOTO PIVOT!
„Here is the promo video of my signature Moto Pedal! Always everybody wonder about the design of the pedals,this video shows one of the variations you can do with them! I ve never seen this trick done by anyone before so I call it the "Moto Pivot". Enjoy it!
Thanx, Viki, we are even happier, that you enjoy our MOTOs like this!
A pedal trick, that MOTO head and professional Flatlander Ali Barjesteh was dreaming of years ago became reality – based on the idea to develop a flat pedal in 2007 called MOTO!
We hope this pedal concept will motivate other riders in the future be able to use their bikes in new ways. Now our pedals go back to their Origin/to where they come from... Go on like this, Viki!
“ ...One of my favorite bike gear items is the Urban Pedal by MOTO Bicycles. I love this platform pedal not only because of its sleek design, but also because I believe it’s the safest pedal for everyday use: perfect for cycling in high heels..."
After our success receiving the Eurobike Award a few weeks back, on 3 September MOTO founder Alireza Barjesteh was back in Berlin accepting yet another award. On this occasion it was the "Made in Berlin" event, where Olympic champion Robert Harting presented MOTO the Made-in-Berlin-Award.
The Made in Berlin Award is given each year to local companies from the capital, who realize excellence with their products and represent the future of Berlin Economic Development. Spitzley Joachim, founder of the association, wants to promote Made in Berlin to highlight that "in this city there are great companies as proof that Berlin will really become 'rich' and sexy."
Well, now I guess its up to us to make sure...

At the international bicycle trade fair Eurobike in Friedrichshafen recently, MOTO pedals took home one of the prizes awarded to competitors in the Parts and Components category. Our ultra-flat, non-slip and bombproof design asserted itself out of 496 competitors from 30 countries and ultimately convinced the jury.
The Eurobike Award enjoys worldwide recognition as the hallmark of innovation and outstanding design in the bicycle industry, and to win this award is a great honor for us here at MOTO, it brings our pedals onto the world stage where they belong! Luckily our grip tape gives us enough traction to stay there!
