What is a prototype?

A prototype is a preliminary model of something. Projects that offer physical products need to show backers documentation of a working prototype. This gallery features photos, videos, and other visual documentation that will give backers a sense of what’s been accomplished so far and what’s left to do. Though the development process can vary for each project, these are the stages we typically see:

Proof of Concept

Explorations that test ideas and functionality.

Functional Prototype

Demonstrates the functionality of the final product, but looks different.

Appearance Prototype

Looks like the final product, but is not functional.

Design Prototype

Appearance and function match the final product, but is made with different manufacturing methods.

Production Prototype

Appearance, function, and manufacturing methods match the final product.

The magped safety bike pedal is a true innovation for mountain bikes and e bikes. Our patented magnet mechanism makes quick and simple release of the foot from the pedal possible at any time. In comparison to standard click in pedals the risk of crash and injury will be reduced to a minimum – and your head stays free for a hassle free biking experience without fear.

We need your support to get the pedal into mass production.

Das magped Sicherheitspedal ist die Pedal-Innovation für Mountainbikes und E-Bikes. Durch den Einsatz unseres patentierten Magnetmechanismus ist ein sicheres, schnelles und einfaches Ablösen des Fußes vom Pedal jederzeit möglich. Das Sturz- und Verletzungsrisiko wird im Vergleich zu Pedalen mit festen Verbindungen (z.B. Klickpedalsystem) auf ein absolutes Minimum reduziert - und der Kopf bleibt frei für genussvolles Biken ohne Angst.

Wir benötigen Deine Unterstützung, um das Pedal in die Massenproduktion zu bringen.

Pulling Force
Pulling Force

Depending on your choice of pedal the magnet will connect you up to approx. 15 kg in pulling force. The force deploys primarily in a downward force and therefore a quick and simple release with a sideways move of your foot is possible practically without effort. But even in more critical situations the pulling force can be overcome without difficulties in a vertical direction as well.

Der Schuh wird je nach gewählter Magnetstärke mit bis zu 15 kg Zugraft magnetisch am Pedal gehalten. Die Zugkraft wirkt vor allem vertikal und ein seitliches Ablösen vom Pedal ist nahezu ohne spürbaren Widerstand möglich. Aber auch ein schnelles und einfaches Ablösen in kritischen Situationen direkt nach oben ist kein Problem.

Positioning
Positioning

The pedal allows for several degrees of twist of your foot and therefore provides less strain on your ankles during your rides. In addition the foot position can be varied to the front or back without a loss of pulling force for an ideal position on your ascend and your descend.

Das Pedal ermöglicht eine geringfügige Drehung des Schuhs und schont somit die Gelenke beim Treten. Ebenso lässt sich die Position nach vorne und hinten ohne Veränderung der Zugkraft variieren, damit findet sich sowohl für den Aufstieg wie auch für die Abfahrt leicht die ideale Position.

Shoe plate
Shoe plate

The shoe plate is made of anti corrosion treated steel and it is compatible with all SPD bike shoes. The shoe plate can be mounted very easily within a few minutes with 2 screws. In comparison to other systems the magped pedal is insensitive to dirt. Additionally the “walkability” of your bike shoe will be significantly improved.

Die Schuhplatte aus rostbehandeltem Spezialstahl kann auf jeden SPD-kompatiblen Fahrradschuh mit 2 Schrauben in wenigen Minuten montiert werden. Im Gegensatz zu anderen Systemen ist Schmutz für das magped kein Problem. Zusätzlich wird die Stolpergefahr beim Gehen reduziert und der Gehkomfort stark verbessert.

Circular motion
Circular motion

The magped pedal ensures a continuous circular tread by employing your extensor muscles (70%) as well as your flexor muscles (30%) for maximum riding performance. You will feel the difference especially on longer rides.

Das magped Pedal ermöglicht einen runden Tritt, da sowohl die Muskel - Strecker (70%) wie auch die Muskel - Beuger (30%) der Beinmuskulatur gleichmäßig beansprucht werden. So werden auch längere Bike Touren zum reinen Vergnügen.

Technology
Technology

The magped pedal is equipped with 3 sealed high quality industrial type bearings. Pins can be exchanged if required. The high performance neodymium magnet is adjustable by means of an integrated polymer damper unit.

Das magped Pedal ist mit 3 hochwertigen, abgedichteten Industriekugellagern ausgestattet. Die Pins des Pedals können bei Bedarf gewechselt werden. Die Höhe des Neodym Hochleistungsmagneten ist über eine spezielle integrierte Polymerfederung verstellbar.

Weight
Weight

The magped pedal is a modern high quality flat pedal made from light CNC cut aluminium with a CrMo spindle. The weight including our patented magnetic system is only 452 grams (100N magnet) or 474 grams (150N magnet) per pair. 

Das magped Pedal ist ein modernes und hochwertiges Flat Pedal aus leichtem CNC gefrästen Aluminium, und einer CrMo Spindel. Das Gewicht inklusive unserem patentierten Magnetsystem beträgt nur 452g (100N Magnet) bzw. 474g (150N Magnet) pro Paar.

Risks and challenges

We built a lot of prototypes in the last 2 years to come to a final working design. The most difficult feature to realize was that the magnet has the be adjustable in hight, flexible mounted and the whole mechanism had to be resistant against dirt.

Wir haben in den letzten 2 Jahren sehr viele Prototypen gebaut, bis wir zum funktionierenden Design gekommen sind. Die größte Schwierigkeit war den Magnet so einzubauen, dass er in der Höhe verstellbar ist, sowie flexibel gelagert sein muss. Zusätzlich sollte die gesamte Konstruktion schmutzresistent sein.
