The CORKI titanium pedal You Should Be Using Now
 

The many benefits that cycling offers to a person's health have long been touted: regular cycling has been shown to reduce stress, improve cardiovascular fitness and help people lose weight and get toned. Plus, it's a fun activity for the whole family to get involved in.

Do you know how to choose a good pedal?

There are a lot of different bike pedal and shoe systems are out there on offer. The designer Drew explains the difference between road and MTB systems and shows examples for cycling shoes from different price ranges. 

When choosing bike pedals, first think about the type of riding you’ll be doing. Will you be road biking or mountain biking? Are you looking for the pedaling efficiency of pedals, or the ease and maneuverability you get with platform pedals? Perhaps you want the benefits of both.  

If you decide on pedals, be sure your pedals, cleats and shoes are made to work as a system. You can shop for either the shoes or pedals first, just keep shoe-pedal compatibility in mind as you decide. Cleats may be sold with the pedals or separately.

Types of Bike Pedals

Titanium Bike Pedals

These “titanium bike  pedals" are the ones you probably had on your first bike. They provide a stable surface to support your feet on both sides and can be used with nearly any shoe.

New versions use titanium  materials, sealed bearings to keep out moisture and grime, and even replaceable pins on the surface for increased grip in slippery situations.

While Corki pedals will release in a crash, titanium bike pedals may give you the confidence to help avoid a crash.

Bike Pedal Featureså

Pedal float: When you step on a cleated bike pedal, the cleat locks into the pedal’s mechanism and is held firmly in place. Float refers to the amount of angular rotation allowed to the foot on the pedal. A few systems hold the foot at a fixed angle; others allow fixed amounts of float and a few allow customizable ranges of float. This largely becomes a personal preference as you become a more experienced rider.

 

How to Use Corki bike Pedals

Using a titanium bike pedal system takes some practice. To disengage your shoe from the pedal, simply twist your foot, starting by pressing or turning your heel outward, away from the bike. At a certain point, the clip system disengages and your foot releases from the pedal. This motion is simple to learn, but it must be practiced to develop muscle memory and confidence in the process.
