We wanted to thank the Kickstarter community for helping us get this project off of the ground. We know we have a lot of work yet to do, but knowing that we now have a large community to help us develop the best pedal system possible is beyond encouraging. Backers: Please keep an eye out for updates and surveys to better help us not only deliver your pledge rewards, but to help us fine tune the last adjustments on the pedal. We’ll also be featuring some great reviews from competitive riders and shop owners etc. If you’re coming to this page after it’s funded, you can also follow us on our facebook page with frequent updates:

We’d also love to hear your feedback on the pedal. You can also pre order the pedal from our website:

Thanks for stopping to take a look at our MöBIUS pedal system. We feel that we’ve designed a unique pedal system that we think the every-day rider as well as the competative rider looking to shave a few grams can really benefit from. With your help we can fine-tune some last adjustments and bring this pedal system to the masses. We’ve been riding / testing /adjusting the pedal and cleat now for the last 3 years and need your help to take things to the next level. With your support, we’ll be able to finalize the components, build the tooling, and buy the equipment and raw materials need for an initial order. WE THANK YOU SO MUCH for just stopping by! Please, take a look at the rewards to the right and the info below about all the nitty-gritty details. Let us know if you have any questions about the pedal and lets shake up the pedal world!

We love all the comments and questions coming in from not only here on Kickstarter, but from all the articles about he pedal as well. We're going to be going through all the comments and address them as best we can. Usually a video shows it best. So check back each week for new Q&A videos. AND KEEP THE QUESTIONS COMING!

We're working on accessories to allow you use the MöBIUS system for any situation. From mountain biking to road biking or just cruisin around. Check out the video below for the details and as always, let us know what you think.

UPDATES

We've received a lot of comments and requests to know more about the road cleat. Below is a rendering of what the road cleat will entail. Again, the objective is to keep things light with a low profile. We will add these as an offering if we can hit $130K. That will allow money for tooling and production. Let us know what you think.

  A lot of you have been concerned about the pedals ability to clear mud. We are redesigning the cleat to make this as effective as possible. The intention here is that the mud will push through the cleat and out the back. We have a couple more ideas up our sleeves to make this as slick as mud.

We're working on accessories to allow you use the MöBIUS system for any situation. From mountain biking to road biking or just cruisin around. Check out the video below for the details and as always, let us know what you think.

When designing the MöBIUS pedals and cleats, there were three design criteria; Function, Simplicity, and Form. We feel we've nailed it on all three.

 Check out the GIF below for a demonstration of IEP and SGE.

 REWARDS

We appreciate you just stopping by and taking a look at our pedals. If you want to try out a set before the masses, definitely grab a set from the rewards list to the right. We have the standard steel versions as well as ultra-light titanium version. Or check out any of our other lower tier rewards. We are so thankful for ANY pledge amount. Everything helps.
                              

FUNDING 

We have 99% of the engineering and testing done… Actually over 3 years of it… The next part is relatively simple. We need money to buy the tools and raw materials to put the final touches on and begin production. We’ve set our goal at a higher $85k, because we plan to build the MOBIUS pedal here in America. Yes, this does add a little bit to the bottom line cost, but we feel it allows us to better monitor the quality of not only the finished product, but the raw materials being used.

TIMELINE

The adjustments we still need to make are known and engineered, as part of the funding received, we will make and test these changes. Prototyping takes time and money, but we feel the process will be short because the engineering is completed. After testing the slight changes, we’ll go into production and are confident that we’ll be able to hit the September 2014 date.



Risks and challenges

I have been an entrepreneur, engineer and a product developer too long to believe that a project will go perfectly from start to finish. The best thing we can do is try and predict the speed bumps and have a plan in place before they arise. I have been riding my pedals for over 3 years now and have been making minor tweaks to them as I have gone along. Lead times with vendors have often slowed the progress of that development. To overcome this, I am going to bring as many processes in house that I can so there is complete control over the development,production and quality process. Regular updates will keep you informed on how things are going.
The Infinity Pedal is the first in a long line of rad products that are waiting to hit the market. I can't wait to get a set on your bike.
Thanks for your support

FAQ

  • We have come up with a couple different ways to adjust the spring tension. We are currently deciding what is going to be the most user friendly approach.

  • Much like the spring tension we have come up with a couple different ways to adjust the float. We are currently deciding what is going to be the most user friendly approach or if we will make it adjustable at all. More to come on this subject.

  • The three hole design will be part of our stretch goal. Once we hit our first goal I will put it on as the stretch goal if we hit $125-$150K I am still waiting for the pricing on tooling so I am not sure what the goal will have to be.If we hit the goal I will give the option for the road cleat design or the mtn bike design for those that have already purchased.

  • Some of you have been concerned about the price to ship to Canada. Kickstarter makes this a complicated matter. So my buddy Josh came up with this. If you are from Canada select the U.S. Option for shipping and add $20 to the price. Let me know if this doesn't work and we will go to plan B. (Plan B is not yet invented).Thanks to my friends in the North.
