Frequently Asked Questions
What is the difference between the first Pedal Plates and Pedal Plates 2.0 ?
The Initial grey model was our first production batch funded with Kickstarter. Those were aimed at and tested for use with sneakers. Based on discussions with and feedback from customers we have made an upgrade and colour change.
What you will see & feel is that the new series is in black and we updated the anti-slip profile to be more effective and also for shoes who don’t have the soft sneaker-type of sole,
And to contribute to our wish to be more socially responsible the Pedal Plates 2.0 series is produced out of 100% recycled material and the packaging is done in sheltered workplace by a team of mentally- and poly-handicapped people.
Which pedal systems are suiteable for the Pedal Plate?
At the moment there are two models of Pedal Plates for both the Shimano SPD-SL and the Look Keo pedal systems. Although both types of plates look similar to the untrained eye, we developed these two models seperately to be able to provide the best fit and solution for each of those pedal systems.
Are my pedals Look Keo Compatible too?
If you use cleats shaped like the ones on the left, you are save.
Even if you use compatible brands like ISSI.
You can order your Look Keo compatible plates by clicking here.
Is SPD the same as SPD-SL?
No, These are two different systems. The Pedal Plate is only applicable to the SPD-SL compatible pedals. So if you look under your schoes and it has the smaller steel cleats (on the left), your bike will not fit the Pedal Plates (unless you change pedals).
When you have the larger cleats on the right under your shoes, the Pedal Plates are made for you. You can then order your Shimano SPD-SL compatible plates by clicking here.
What's in it for me?
- for commuting
- when on holiday
- doing short trips
- just showing off your bike
- when you are one bike short
- lending your bike to a friend or family
- using(or sharing) the home trainer without denting the floor
- because your road bikes rides so much better then your city bike
- at first use of road bikes for those who are afraid for embarrassing traffic light situations
and that way get more fun from the money you invested in your road bike, so the answer is: Fun on Investment (FOI)

In which colours does the Pedal Plate come?
During our Kickstarter campaign an the first period, you can choose from grey. As a start up we wish keep our investment low, so we limited our first production to one colour.
However if you do have suggestions for the future, do feel free to drop us a line.
How can I release the Pedal Plate if the pedal tension is high?
Users who don’t have enough strength in their hands/thumbs or use the Pedal Plates with high tension pedals, now have the possibility to release them by inserting a tool (like screwdriver) through the rear and take them out that way.
