Product Description

In the last 100 years flat pedals have remained practically unchanged, perhaps surprising as they remain the point which transfers human power to the bike and ultimately the road. The position of the foot on the pedal influences your efficiency and has consequences for the muscle development and joints from hip to toe. The Ergon PC2 is the first non SPD-type pedal to have been designed with the ergonomic demands and the biomechanics of the user in mind. The result is impressive. A new type of pedal with a number of features which will increase power, comfort and help avoid aches and pains associated with traditional designs

Comfy, grippy, light and pretty cool looking.

You really do feel like you are getting closer to the feeling of the "circular" pedaling motion, rather than just pushing down on a pedal.

They are a great alternative to clip in pedals and shoes.

I ride a city bike, and I wear whatever shoes I happen to have on - flip flops, sneakers, heels. These pedals provide great control and a real feeling of power when pedaling with all kinds of footwear. I used to ride a very expensive road bike with clipless pedals, so I was used to the feeling of having "grip" in my pedal stroke. The pedals that came with my bike were just the cheap, slippery ones that dig into your shoes. The Ergon pedals are really well designed, with a well countured footbed that guides your foot to proper placement. You really do feel like you are getting closer to the feeling of the "circular" pedaling motion, rather than just pushing down on a pedal.

I switched to these pedals from pedals with straps, when I started to use my bike daily to commute to work in Mass. Between the cars and the weather, I did not want to risk having my feet strapped to pedals if I needed to take evasive action. I assumed my pedaling would become less efficient, but the opposite has occurred. I can keep a faster ongoing tempo with these pedals that I did with toe clips. Strange but true. Add to this that I can wear any shoes I want, and I am quite pleased. The only negative is that you need an 8 mm Allen wrench to install them, and the instructions were a bit vague. I spent a lot of time futily trying to put the left pedal on the right side of the bike. Now all is well.

Like most PC2 buyers, I bought these for commuting in regular shoes. For the most part, they are very good for this. However, they are terrible with leather soled shoes. The pedals have 3M safety tape as their grip tape. Leather soles not only slip around like crazy on this stuff, but they are shredded through at the same time. Even if they gripped, factoring in the cost of resoling would, by my estimate, make these pedals cost around $600 per year. That said, I do want them to work. I am going to try peeling off the 'safety tape' and gluing on some Shoe Goo to rectify this. I have used rubber block pedals before these, and the rubber gripped very well.

That problem aside, these are great pedals. On rubber and sythetic soled shoes these grip very nicely. The huge size of the pedal means that even when you do slip, you probably won't slip right off. The curvature appears to help the grip, though I am not sure about it putting you in the correct positioning as their advertising material would have you believe.

Had these pedals been fit for commuting in dress shoes, I would have given them five stars.

(Attempted solution in comments.)

Followup:
As described in the comments, I attached rubber grips to these. This worked perfectly.

Ergon PC2 Pedals stick to any shoes I wear like glue and the resulting pedal stroke is solid and powerful. I got tired of scraping my shins with the spikes on my Azonics (which were pricier). I have perhaps 10 pairs of shoes (not including boots) for various outdoor conditions and all of them can be used with these pedals. These pedals keep me on my bike much, much longer.

Pros: Not having to haul out my 5 ten biking shoes whenever I want to take a ride.

Changing foot position on this pedal if needed.

I couldn't really change foot position easily with the Azonic. If my feet were not positioned quite right, it would be necessary to stop, release them and reposition them. I use my Ergons on a Specialized Myka FSR comp WSD and will probably put another pair on my TREK FX 7.5 WSD.

Cons: These pedals don't look as 'cool' as my older Azonic platforms, you might even say they look a little clunky.

If you have toe-in problem, your heel will hit the crank arm because of the pedal is so close to the crank arm. It won't happen to my regular type of pedal.

I'm not a racer, just a casual biker. I bought a road bike and there were clippers on them. Bought a pair of regular pedals but it was tough biking uphill with them. These pedals are a great solution. They do slip from your soles sometime if you don't have your feet set in the perfect position, but the increased surface area greatly improve energy transfer when biking uphill compared to regular pedals.

I guess to achieve the ergonomics the pedal needs to be a certain size, but it is pretty large and looks unusual on the bike, takes some getting used to in appearance. The performance is fine, it does not really simulate a clipped pedal in terms of performance but is probably the best you can do in a flat pedal in terms of energy transfer.

Got a new bike? Peddles not so good? Get these!
Comfy, grippy, light and pretty cool looking.
First time using them, 5:30am commute to work. Completely forgot they were on, took off for my ride to work. Felt totally natural, perfect fit, no slip, the angle of the peddles, I swear, allow more power per stroke. I was cruising up hills that before were really tough for me. The peddles were actually assisting in power stroke and I know it wasn't me. They really made that little difference to climb hills that I was walking before.
I can see keeping these great peddles long after I sell my bike...but that's not going to happen...sell my bike, that is.
Installation is with an 8mm Allen key tightened from the inside the peddle. Loosen old peddles counter clock wise.
You will enjoy the size, large for me, the natural angle, confidence with the traction, and overall comfort.
Really made my bike feel a whole lot better. Get the grips, too!
