THE SHOE AND PEDAL
THAT CHANGED
THE WAY WE RIDE

THE INTRODUCTION OF OUR SPD RECESSED
CLEAT SYSTEM WAS AN INDUSTRY GAME-CHANGER.
IT PROVIDED THE BENEFITS OF A CLIPPED-IN SYSTEM THAT WAS STABLE POWER TRANSFER PLATFORM AND COMFORTABLE TO WALK IN. THE DESIGN WAS INTUITIVELY SIMPLE, JUST STEP ONTO THE PEDAL TO ENGAGE THE CLEAT LOCKING MECHANISM AND RELEASE WITH A SIMPLE HEEL TWIST. THIS INNOVATION DELIVERED AN ENTIRELY NEW LEVEL OF VERSATILITY THAT WAS A HUGE ADVANTAGE FOR OFF-ROAD RIDING, BUT ALSO PROVIDED THE FREEDOM FOR TOURING CYCLISTS TO GET OFF THE BIKE TO REST OR EXPLORE BY FOOT.
