The MOTO Reflex Pedal  got a “Special Mention” award from the German Design Council at the German Design Award 2016. The German Design Award ranks among the most renowned design competitions in the world, being highly regarded far beyond its field and expert group. Due to the award’s unique nomination process only suchlike products, which stand out for their design quality, are invited to participate.

MOTO Bicycles’ Reflex Pedal boasts a simple yet ingenious shape and functionality. “Be safe in style” is more than just a slogan for the spring born pedal – it’s the core principle of MOTO’s developments.

Form doesn’t just follow function in this case, it meets it at eye level.

For the online magazine Velomotion, Andreas Waldera’s put the MOTO Reflex Pedal to the test – an intensive field test. He quickly became a modern tarmac rebel himself: “The grip on the MOTO Reflex Pedal is fantastic from the very beginning, completely independent of the shoes worn or weather conditions. For those who are in a rush through the urban jungle: be it a bunny hop or a dart down the stairs, it won’t let you down– nice and stable! Thanks to the flat surface of the pedal, the cyclist is assured a comfortable ride and driving sensation, even with shoes that have thin and soft soles. The MOTO Reflex Pedal offers the modern tarmac rebel a good grip in all driving situations – of course in dry weather, but also when it’s wet. The fact that pins are avoided in the design means the shoes, as well as the shins and trousers are spared. The grip on the pedal is entirely convincing, and though it does require a minimum of maintenance, the simple construction means that the upkeep is easily and quickly done:

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.”

For the second time in a row our pedals won over the the jury at EUROBIKE, the renowned bicycle trade fair in Friedrichshafen, Germany. This year it was the new MOTO Reflex Pedal that took the hearts by storm at the worlds leading competition in bicycle business and we were once again honoured with the Eurobike Award. This is the industry's acknowledgement for the steady advancement of our pedal systems and also one of the most important quality seals in the market. 

The MOTO Reflex Pedal will be available from spring 2015.

Enter the night, reflecting the light of your city!
