    You need done better colors. These colors are well, boring and yuck!how about purple, green, orange, magenta?? Seriously I’m either going to die from boredom or throw up in my mouth looking at them. But, I dig science so I’m ordering.

    These pedals are 32oz in weight. Two pound each? Really? Am I calculating wrong?

    • Scott Bixby

      Thanks for pointing out that error!

      The correct weight is 505 grams for the pair.

    I ride a recumbent trike. I’ve always used clip-in’s in order to prevent leg suck. That’s when UR foot slips off the pedal and gets sucked back under the cross bar, both painful even at slow speed and dangerous.

    So my question is could a strap be run through the pedal in a manner that wud allow for it to wrap behind the heal of UR shoe thereby preventing the foot from slipping off the pedal?

      Hi Doug

      We aware of a couple recumbent riders that have a fabricated a custom heel strap to work with the Catalyst but to our knowledge, there’s no similar product commercially available for purchase.

      The Fat Straps from Power Grips will work with the Catalyst and we have heard from some recumbent riders using them for the retention you mentioned.

      Thank you!

    I have ridden these pedals for the past season and they have provided me with the best contact patch feel from any of the various pedals I have tried.

    These have served me well from everything from XC racing to park days, trust me when I say these things are built to last. The mid foot position was a new concept for me however, it only took a few hours of riding to get my foot positioning dialed in. Now that I am used to these I could never go back to standard flat pedals.

    Great product you guys!
