On-The-Fly Pedal Adapters!
On-The-Fly Pedal Adapters!

THE PROBLEM:  Clipless bicycle pedals requires a specific cleat attached to either a mountain shoe or road shoe to attach the rider 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? 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. This creates a new problem for the casual rider. It can be uncomfortable 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 of the pedal creating uncomfortable pressure spots.  Or the rider has to carry their street shoes around in a backpack or walk around in their clipless riding shoes.  Either way, the options aren't great.

THE SOLUTION:  FlyPedals 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 best clipless pedal to platform pedal adapters on the market, you can ride around in comfort! FlyPedals work with every major clipless pedal on the market (road or mountain bike). Simply pick up a set of FlyPedals and the cleats for your bike; mount the cleats to the FlyPedal. The FlyPedal platforms easily clip-in and out of your pedals as needed.  You can finally ride to your destination in comfort and style with your street shoes.

COMPATIBILITY:  FlyPedals work with all Shimano SPD and SPD-SL, LOOK Keo, Keo2max, S-Track and Delta, Crank Brothers Egg Beaters and Candy, Time ATAC, RXS, and Clic, SpeedPlay and SpeedPlay Frog, Infinity Pedals, and ALL clipless pedal systems that use a standard 2 or 3 hole system. Adapt your favorite clipless pedals to platform pedals and back in just one simple step!

(Note: Time ATAC and Crank Brothers Egg Beaters & Candy require a separate adapter included at $45 reward level)

LIFETIME WARRANTY: Yes, you heard correctly, All FlyPedals received from Kickstarter Backers will come with a Lifetime Warranty!  If your FlyPedal cracks, splits, or breaks in any way, we will replace your FlyPedal at no cost.

PRODUCT:  FlyPedals 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. Individual weight 97 grams and dimensions are 90x90x11 mm

Risks and challenges

We need your help to fund the initial costs of the aluminum die cast mold, as well as the first production run, packaging and supplies. We have already designed and developed the working prototype, selected a supplier, and built a website for our business, but we need your support to make this a reality. We truly believe in this product and we want to finally bring this to the masses!
