Game changer

by -

I have been riding these since they were first released from Pedalling Innovations, a couple of years now, and have not looked back. Think about the first time you rode on your 5-10s and noticed how stiff the sole was. After a while it starts to soften up, until your shoe starts to arch over the pedal. You start to notice your feet getting a bit achey on the longer descents. The Catalyst gives you a massive platform to stand on, no arching of the foot, hello comfort! Power transfer is awesome since you have a descent surface to push on the whole time. I think there is more to be gained by people with bigger feet because it massively increases your front to back platform. While I appreciate the workmanship that has gone into the Catalyst I wish there was a lighter version available, mine are ~500g, a massive step up from the 250g flats I was running prior. Having said that the hugely increased comfort and power transfer means I will stick with the Catalyst pedals and hope there is a fancy version made one day, even if it is just a limited run.

Catalyst Pedals

I have been using the Catalyst pedals for the last two weeks on both my 29er hard tail and 27.5 dually mountain bikes.
There have been great and easy to get used to on my dually MTB bike.
On the hard tail it has taken more adjustment over rough surfaces like rocks and tree roots due to the back wheel bouncing some.

No more foot or low back pain

I love these pedals. They give an amazing stable platform for descending and I find that I'm riding with less low back pain since I can get my whole foot arch on the platform. Back pain is almost non existant these days.

Fantastic pedals

I have been using the Catalyst pedal since they were first introduced a couple of years ago. I won't use any other flat pedal on my trail bikes. The longer platform really allows you to create a lot of power when needed, yet it also provides the ability to feather the pedals during slow speed manoeuvres and trials moves. It's great to see these aviailable in Australia now as shipping from the USA wasn't cheap. Being a VPP manufactured pedal they can also be rebuilt, although mine are still going strong. It's worth checking out James Wilsons Flat Pedal Manifesto. After 20+ years on clipless I swapped and am now 100% sold on flats and the Catalyst.

Great, works well, good foot support without needing an uncomfortable specialised cycle shoe.
