This is my first time using pedal straps (or any device fixing my shoes to my pedals), and I've been delighted by my first few weeks using them. I feel more secure and confident, feel myself using muscles that I haven't used before while biking, and on average have been shaving a few minutes off my previously ~35 minute commute. I find them especially helpful for making it up a short but quite steep toward the work-end of the journey. So far so great!
Love these new pedals
They are perfect for my recumbent trike. Keeps my feet in place without being restrictive.
Might be goin clipless soon though!
So far I've only used the pedals inside on my trainer bike for about 2 hours. They work great and are very wide and the straps work equally well. Straps are easy to get out of even tho they hold firm and comfortably. I'll update after road use when it gets warm.
Best upgrade so far!
Straps are easy to get in/out of, and they look and feel great!
