Helpful tips to help with your cycling.

You should choose your clipless road pedals based on how used you are to them – beginners will need a slightly different model or adjustment to cyclists who already ride with clipless pedals.

 

WHAT’S THE DIFFERENCE?

There are two main families of clipless pedals: road pedals and mountain bike pedals.

Road pedals are designed with a large pedalling surface for transferring as much energy as possible from the cyclist's legs.

 

IF YOU’RE TRYING CLIPLESS PEDALS FOR THE FIRST TIME

Choose a model where you can adjust the tension. This type of pedal is easier to clip into and get out of. If the spring is stretched to the max, it will be easier to unclip from: all you need to do is flick of your heel to the side to free your shoe from the pedal. You can then tighten them up as you get used to them.

 

IF YOU ALREADY USE CLIPLESS PEDALS

Choose a model with a large surface area. It’ll be able to hold your foot on the pedal more securely when you’re pedalling hard – we know the last thing you want to think about is your foot slipping when you’re racing towards that finishing line!

If you want to walk without damaging your cleats, you could always wear Keo cleat covers.
