Need a pair of pedals? Take a look through our top brands, including Shimano pedals, Speedplay pedals, Garmin and more. When it comes to choosing a pedal, personal preference is everything. Essentially, the choice is whether you go with clipless pedals, or standard pedals.
Clipless systems, available for both mountain and road bikes, typically give more control and more efficient power transfer. While there are many different systems, all require a cycling-specific shoe such as the mtb spd pedals - usually dubbed ‘SPDcompatible’, after Shimano’s SPD system – to accommodate the cleat that snaps your foot into place on the pedal. Conventional flat pedals are also an option. These are sometimes preferred by mountain bikers who want to ride more extreme trails, or jumps, while standard road bike pedals (you can get pedals with toe clips or without) are typically preferred by recreational riders or tourers.
