Meet the Pedalling Innovations Catalyst Pedal. They are the world's first midfoot optimised pedal, designed to give you the performance of clipless pedals, with the fun and freedom of flats.
Regular pedal, creating forward push into the pedal.
Catalyst pedal, creating a balanced push into the pedal.
By providing a platform that lets you support both ends of the arch of your foot, the Catalyst Pedal supports your foot the same way the ground would, allowing for a more balanced, stable foot position and increased power transfer into the drivetrain.
How it works:
To accomplish this the Catalyst Pedal features a full 5 inches/ 128 mm of contact space for your foot. This allows the pedal body to support both the ball of the foot and the heel while also resulting in a true mid-foot placement of the axle. However, the Catalyst Pedal isn’t any wider than a normal flat pedal – 3.75 inches/ 95 mm to be exact. This means that it disappears under your foot and doesn’t expose any extra pedal body to rock strikes. This also means that the Catalyst Pedal is actually smaller underfoot than any other “oversized” flat pedal. In order to get the most out of the Catalyst Pedals you just need to do one simple thing.
Make sure that axle is in the middle of your arch. On the Catalyst Pedal, this foot position will make sure that you are able to support both ends of your arch. No other pedal on the market is long enough to accomplish this, which is what makes the Catalyst Pedal so effective.
This foot placement improves your pedalling in 3 ways:
