Do you want to know more about bike pedals?

Bike pedals are the supports with which the human force is exerted to pedal and make the bicycle move forward. The pedals rotate on an axis that is attached to the chainset. This rotary movement is what makes the chainrings move, activating the chain that, in turn, turns the rear wheel. At present there are pedals of many different materials such as plastic, iron, aluminium and finally carbon fibre.

We can differentiate between three types of pedals:

- The most basic and widely used pedals are those that consist of a plastic or metal platform and on which force is applied by the foot to start the movement of the bicycle. These pedals rotate to adapt better to the foot.

- Pedals with straps or toe clips are very similar to the simple flat pedals but in this case they consist of a strap or support to hold the toe in place. With these pedals cyclists have a better grip on the pedals which improves performance.

- Clipless pedals are the most used by cyclists who regularly practice this sport, better performance is achieved as strength is provided throughout the entire rotation movement of the pedal and contact with the pedal is never lost. These pedals clip to special shoes and to unclip them, all you have to is make a small lateral movement.

There are road and MTB pedals. The main difference is that MTB pedals can be attached on both sides, while road ones only attach on one side and are usually lighter.
