We’re stoked to now offer the Ergon PC2 ergonomic contour pedals at Wicked+, and we have a feeling they’re going to be a big hit with locals looking for a keep-your-feet-happy ride on their beach cruisers and everyday commuter bikes. The lightweight pedals feature a large, anatomically contoured platform that optimizes the biomechanics of the lower leg and feet. The result: a more powerful and comfortable pedal stroke that also reduces the risk of injury. A 3M grip increases power transfer while minimizing slip, even when wet.
Here’s how Ergon puts it:
In the last 100 years flat pedals have remained practically unchanged, perhaps surprising as they remain the point which transfers human power to the bike and ultimately the road. The position of the foot on the pedal influences your efficiency and has consequences for the muscle development and joints from hip to toe. The Ergon PC2 is the first non SPD-type pedal to have been designed with the ergonomic demands and the biomechanics of the user in mind. The result is impressive. A new type of pedal with a number of features which will increase power, comfort and help avoid aches and pains associated with traditional designs.
Come by Wicked+ and put your foot on a PC2 to feel the difference. Until then, watch the video below to learn more about the PC2′s award-winning design.
