“The 15 millimetre-thin MOTO Urban Pedal is made for everyday use. A griptape ensures secure grip even when the pedal is wet, or whilst cycling with leather soles. Sharp pins, notorious for causing injuries when slipping off, are also replaced for a smooth ride. The 160-gram pedal consists of two supporting decks made out of glass-fibre reinforced plastic, all tightly encompassed in a wooden frame. At MOTO Bicycles, we ensure that only the necessary materials are used, and that a good balance is found between product benefits, environmental and economic factors.”

"...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.

„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..."
