Close ×


Clipless pedals are often regarded as essential for road cyclists. They make you feel more connected to the bike, and improve your pedalling efficiency. However, shoes with cleats on the bottom are tricky to walk in, and it can be reassuring knowing you can quickly put a foot down if you need to! There are pros and cons to each pedal system so, in this video, we compare clipless and flat pedals to see which is best!
