You may be considering purchasing new bike pedals for a number of reasons. First, you may be making the switch from flat pedals to the clipless type. Secondly you may have bought a new bike, which often comes without pedals and finally, perhaps you have decided to upgrade your current shoe-pedal system to another.
For many people, as far as racing bike pedals are concerned, clipless pedals are the best option. By attaching the rider's feet to the pedal mechanically, clipless pedals deliver a far greater power and can lead to a much improved performance.
Indeed, the clipless type of pedal is becoming increasingly popular even for road bike pedals and the variety of styles and designs of these pedals is now enormous. For the road racers, these pedals will be both high-tech and lightweight and therefore relatively expensive, while more user-friendly road bicycle pedals tend to be less costly.
However, if you still prefer the old platform type pedal then these are still available. In fact, their designs have been significantly improved in recent years. Now made from more lightweight materials, the platform pedal of today also tends to have sealed bearings, which are far more efficient at keeping out moisture and dirt. This type of pedal therefore remains popular among mountain bikers.
Finally, a hybrid design that combines the efficiency of the clipless style with the flexibility of the platform pedal is another alternative. These are especially popular for people looking to ease into the clipless style designs.
