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.

"…. they have proved to be ideal for everyday life, they are the most comfortable pedal which the author has ridden yet…." 

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! 

This is what Eva from AllThatIWant Shop said about our pedals in the Momentum Mag. 

“ ...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..."

"...This pedals look supercool as you can see on the picture, we love the wooden feature and the special grip makes you feel really safe riding your bike with those pedals"

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...
