Answered questions

Doesn´t a concave platform surface provide even a better foot support?
We experimented with several shapes including multiple concave concepts. Most of the shoe soles wouldn´t give a better feeling with a concave pedal shape while riding, as most soles are too rigid to allow a natural foot position. We decided for a flat shape because we got considerably and statistically better feedback with this shape from all our testers. As footwear evolves, rest assured, so will we.



Can I order the pedal set with a silver axle rather than the black axle?
The coating that is used on our axles to prevent corrosion and reduce friction that allows the pedal spin freely only comes in black. It’s defined by the laws of chemistry and physics, which is both a bummer and a blessing depending on how you view it.



Doesn´t griptape wear off very fast?
To our surprise, no. After about half a year in daily, continuous sporting use the grip was worn down by about 20%. After a year of average use, we’ve found the grip to be more than adequate. If you always need the maximum fresh skateboard deck grip, you can easily swap your grip tape as you see fit. You can get a pair of grip tape pads for 7,50 Euros from us or acquire some through a skate shop. The Installation is super simple and takes about 5 minutes.



Is the MOTO Pedal waterproof?
The grip tape is waterproof. The wooden pedals are waterproof glued and sealed. Rain rides are no problem, you can move freely in wet weather conditions and enjoy the grip benefits compared to conventional pedals. Our parts are made of the best materials that are available on the market in terms of performance, weight and dimensions. Such parts are usually maintenance intensive where as our pedals virtually maintenance free. If you’re one to store your bike outside throughout heavy snow all winter or in a consistently wet environment, our pedals will weather about the same as your seat and grips.



Is wood durable enough for a pedal?
Here we can clearly answer yes. If you look at skateboards, they’re exposed to far higher loads than our pedal. Nevertheless, they are still made of wood, because there is no other material that would be more suitable. [The multiple lamination and a special surface treatment makes the MOTO Pedal ideal for everyday use.]

Our patented design ensures that the MOTO Pedal has no disadvantages in terms of stability compared to a conventional pedal. Signs of use depending on usage are normal and the same as conventional pedals, and if needed the wooden frame is also replaceable.


Cleaning and care
To maintain optimal functionality of the pedals they can be maintained. TThis is done in a few simple steps and takes a couple of minutes. To allow cleaning and care if required, the Griptape pads are designed to be reused several times according to the state of their wearout. Reflex tapes must not be removed.

  1. Remove griptape

    Heat griptape with a hair dryer for a few seconds and remove it carefully.

  2. Seperate half-shells

    Use the Allen key 3mm, included in the package to unscrew the half-shells.

  3. Grease pedal shaft

    Clean and grease pedal shaft sufficiently. We recommend lubricating the slide bearings with BERULUB FR 16 or equivalent lightweight, silicone-free, synthetic special grease with PTFE additives.

  4. Tighten half-shells

    Make sure the O-ring is fitted into the designated grooves of the half-shells to prevent damage. Tighten the screws of the plastic half-shells with a torque of 120-150 Ncm. You can use the Allen key, included in the package.

  5. Apply griptape

    Stick on new or used griptape.

    Slight clicking:
    If the pedals develop a slight clicking sound after intensive use, this indicates that the bearings should be retightened. Please proceed as described in maintenance.



Is it possible to have my individual design or logo on the griptape?
Yes, customized griptape pads are possible with a minimum order quantity of 15 pairs - price on request.
