MOTO Urban Pedals are a practical, everyday pedal that uses a simple design while also being lightweight and sustainable.
In the heart of Berlin, Germany, a city known for its colorful graffiti and artistic flare, lies Kreuzberg, a hub for artists, creatives, entrepreneurs, and “lifestyle gurus” like Alireza Barjesteh the founder of MOTO Bicycles. “[Alireza] embodied urban bike culture since before the term even existed and still embodies it today,” stated MOTO’s website of its founder. With years of cycling experience under his belt, Barjesteh collaborated with a diverse team of cyclists, designers, and engineers to bring a set of beautifully designed pedals that are made to meet the needs of every cycling “urbanista.”
With the MOTO Urban Pedals, MOTO Bicycles embarked on a mission to reinvent the bike pedal. They created a practical, everyday pedal that uses a simple design while also lightweight and sustainable. The Urban Pedals use a sandwich construction method, which allows the pedals to be uniquely lightweight while maintaining durability. In systematically reducing the number of components, the MOTO Urban Pedals are sleek, safe, and stylish.
With a flat surface design, The Urban Pedal can easily be used with a wide range of footwear from trainers to heels. The continuous surface is coated with a strong, waterproof grip tape that gives the pedals excellent traction. “We experimented with some shapes like a concave one, we decided for a flat one, because we really got better feedback with this shape.”
In true urbanista style, MOTO Bicycles offers a variety of grip tape patterns and colors that allow you to customize your MOTO Urban pedals.
