Italian design studio, Sovrappensiero, tackled the problem of slippery city bike pedals by developing silicone pedal covers, called Grippine.

Grippine sleeves slide onto just about any pedal, providing a soft yet grippy surface for any style of footwear. Whether breathing life into an older set of pedals or for adding some colorful flair to your bike, Grippine covers promise to be a simple add-on for most bikes. No need avoid your smooth soled shoes or worry about wear from plastic or metal pedal spikes.

Using the crowdfunding platform, Eppela, Sovrappensiero aims to raise €10,000 by July 24, 2014, in order to fund the first production run. Early supporters can be part of the voting panel for new colors.

    Silicon, the element, is brittle and would make a terrible pedal cover. Silicone, the compound, is what was used here.
