Why the BikeDads Love the Catalyst Pedals

One of our favorite Instagram accounts to follow here at Pedaling Innovations is The Bike Dads (@thebikedads). As a dad myself I love to see their posts showing kids and adults sharing a common love of riding bikes.

A few months ago we sent them a pair of Catalyst Pedals to check out. As a fellow dad on a bike I was excited to get their feedback on them and how they helped them have more fun on the trail and with their kids.

A couple of weeks ago they shared their review on their site. While I encourage you to check out the whole thing, here was their overall impression…

“Most people think about pedal performance in how they pedal uphill. My favorite part about these Monster pedals was how they were on the downs.

Last summer I craved steep trails and the platforms allowed my legs to keep up to my local pinners when my fitness was more than lacking after baby number two. I have used these pedals on long xc rides, at indoor bike parks, freezing my tail off  fatbiking, pulling the kids in the trailer and lapping my local freeride zone.

Anyone who has spent time at Whistler or seeks air on their local trails has experienced jamming their ankles on landings. The support these pedals gave me on the downs and the new mid foot riding style led to less fatigue on the way down and more energy in the tank.”

And this just adds to a growing list of reviews and rider feedback sharing similar stories. Being able to better engage the hips while riding improves pedaling power on the uphills and stability on the downhills, adding up to more fun and less fatigue on the trail.

Helping adults feel like kids again on the bike is one of our main goals so if easier climbs and faster descents are something you’re interested in then visit www.pedalinginnovations.com to learn more.

Until next time…

Ride Strong,

James Wilson
