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.

“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.”

"...The replaceable grip tape offers best "grip" without risk of injury -
and without ruining expensive leather shoes. Even ridable with high heels..."

"The Pedals from Berlin label MOTO offer even during wet conditions a continuous grippy surface and a very effective power transmission. Also available with individual motives." 

 

In the heart of Berlin, Germany, a city known for its colorful graffiti and artistic flare, lies Kreuzberg, a hub for artists, creatives, entrepreneurs, and “lifestyle gurus” like Alireza Barjesteh the founder of MOTO Bicycles. “[Alireza] embodied urban bike culture since before the term even existed and still embodies it today,” stated MOTO’s website of its founder. With years of cycling experience under his belt, Barjesteh collaborated with a diverse team of cyclists, designers, and engineers to bring a set of beautifully designed pedals that are made to meet the needs of every cycling “urbanista.”

With the MOTO Urban Pedals, MOTO Bicycles embarked on a mission to reinvent the bike pedal. They created a practical, everyday pedal that uses a simple design while also lightweight and sustainable. The Urban Pedals use a sandwich construction method, which allows the pedals to be uniquely lightweight while maintaining durability. In systematically reducing the number of components, the MOTO Urban Pedals are sleek, safe, and stylish.

With a flat surface design, The Urban Pedal can easily be used with a wide range of footwear from trainers to heels. The continuous surface is coated with a strong, waterproof grip tape that gives the pedals excellent traction. “We experimented with some shapes like a concave one, we decided for a flat one, because we really got better feedback with this shape.”

In true urbanista style, MOTO Bicycles offers a variety of grip tape patterns and colors that allow you to customize your MOTO Urban pedals.

’’While road cycling has optimized their efficiency with clipless pedals, little has been done for everyday, urban cyclists—until now 
...Made of weatherproofed laminated plywood with a replaceable grip tape surface available in a variety of patterns, the stylish Moto pedal offers a wide surface (92 x 77 mm) for more foot power for all shoe types and bare feet. At 320 g per pair and 15 mm thin, these could be the lightest and flattest platform pedals on the market. Thanks to its patented sandwich construction with embedded spindle, the Moto pedal eliminates the danger of riders being whacked in the shin by a spinning pedal.“
