Fly Pedals COLORS : Universal Clipless Bicycle Pedal Adapter

$32,384

Thanks to Kickstarter, Fly Pedals are now 100% Made in the USA in Denver, Colorado!!

THE PROBLEM: Clipless bicycle pedals requires a specific cleat attached to either a mountain shoe or road shoe to connect the riders foot to the pedal. Unfortunately, these cleats often make it difficult to walk around in road shoes or mountain shoes. So, what do you do when the ride is over? Or maybe a casual ride to a bar, restaurant or cafe is the next stop? Most riders don't want to wear their clipless riding shoes for the casual ride. This creates a new problem for the casual rider. It can be uncomfortable and unsafe to pedal around with street shoes on top of clipless pedals. Most have no platform so the rider's foot pushes directly on the mechanism creating pressure spots and little to no traction. Or the rider has to carry their street shoes around in a backpack or walk around in their clipless riding shoes. Some folks even resort to swapping between platform pedals and their clipless pedals. Either way, the options aren't great.

THE SOLUTION: Fly Pedals are the simple, lightweight, and affordable adapter to convert your road or mountain bike for casual riding. Don't buy a second or third bike for the casual ride around the neighborhood. With one set of the world's only Universal Clipless Pedal Adapters on the market, you can ride around in comfort! Fly Pedals work with every major clipless pedal on the market (road or mountain bike). Simply pick up a set of Fly Pedals and the cleats for your bike; mount the cleats to the Fly Pedals, and easily clip-in and out of your pedals as needed. You can now ride to your destination in comfort and style with your street shoes.

NEW COLORS: We have designed six awesome new colors, based on customer feedback: Blue, Orange, Black, Pink, Red, and Green! 

LIFETIME WARRANTY: Yes, you heard correctly, all Fly Pedals come with a Lifetime Warranty! If your Fly Pedals cracks, splits, or breaks in any way, we will replace them at no cost.

PRODUCT: Fly Pedals are made with 100% aircraft grade aluminum. They are ultra lightweight, durable and small enough to easily fit in your pocket on long rides or around town.

 Fly Pedals are patented as the only Universal Clipless Pedal Adapter

COMPATIBILITY: Fly Pedals are compatible with any clipless road or mountain pedal with cleats that use the standard 2 hole "mountain" pattern or the standard 3 hole "road" pattern. Some of the most popular pedals that use these hole patterns are Shimano SPD and SPD-SL, Time ATAC, Clic, and RXS. Crank Brothers Egg Beaters, Candy and Mallet, Speedplay and LOOK Keo, Keo2max, Delta and S-Track.

Please Note: Speedplay Frogs are a unique design as a zero tension clipless pedal system. There is no tension mechanism, as in other clipless pedals to hold the cleat securely to the pedal. This means that Fly Pedals may unintentionally release when used with Frogs.
