The triathlon pedals are the supports with which the human force is exerted to pedal and make the bicycle advance. At present there are pedals of many different materials such as plastic, iron, aluminum and carbon fiber.
We differentiate between three types of pedals :
- The most basic, which consist of a plastic or metal platform and are rotating to obtain a better adaptation of the foot.
- The rastras or calapies , like the basic ones with the addition of a strap or support that holds the toe, getting a better grip and at the same time, more performance.
- Automatic pedals, we get better performance and we never lose contact with the pedal since they are attached to special shoes.
The pedals can be of different types depending on the triathlon we practice.
