Ditch the Clipless for These Flats – New Catalyst Pedal Review Posted on the Shoulders of Giants Website.


While I love to talk about the Catalyst Pedals and how they can improve your performance, confidence and overall fun on the trail I know I can be a bit biased. Nothing gets old as fast as someone telling you how great their products are.

Which is why I love how many great reviews we’ve gotten from other riders who have nothing to gain by sharing their experiences. Do a search on Google for Catalyst Pedals Review and you’ll find several unbiased reviews with great things to say about this new pedal.

Adding to the great press the Catalyst Pedal has received since its release is the latest review to come out on the new Shoulders of Giants website. The founder of the website Kevin Linderman was a long time clipless pedal user who was intrigued by the concept and ready to ditch his clipless pedals to try them out.

I don’t want to ruin it but obviously I wouldn’t be so pumped on the review if Kevin didn’t enjoy his experience. For me, the best thing I hear from clipless pedal riders who have tried the Catalyst Pedals is the rediscovered sense of freedom and fun that we used to have when we were kids.

So check out Kevin’s review for yourself and see what you think. And if you have any questions about the Catalyst Pedals and the science and logic behind them let me know, I’m always happy to help out.

Until next time…

    Agree on flat pedals. But the Catalyst Pedal has it all wrong. Midfoot placement is simply wrong. The pedal spindle should be under the ball of your foot – just as in clipless. Thus, an incorrectly designed pedal that will lead to a loss of efficiency and needless injuries.

      Surely you have some science to back up your claims because after looking into I found that was not the case. Here is a link to the science that backs up the use of a mid-foot placement, as you can see it is the ball of the foot that leads to a loss of power and needless injuries. I already have doctors who recommend the Catalyst Pedal based on the results their patients have seen from using them when it comes to helping clear up injuries associated with cycling, can you say the same about the pedals you are riding?

      If you really care to learn and not just defend your ego and position then spend some time looking into the real science and ask some hard questions to those who claim to know. If you learn something I don’t know please let me know but after years of research I can find nothing that backs up what you just said except tradition and pseudo-science. I just want to know and apply the truth and as far I know the Catalyst Pedal is the best way to do that.

    • Hi. Race Radio is an odd name. Anyway, The catalyst Pedal has benefits that are real. Placing the ball of your foot directly over the pedal spindle is not the best position. The catalyst pedal can give more power efficiency. Many users have written reviews and many of them are positive comments on the Catalyst Pedals. Don’t talk to others in a condescending way.

    Interesting. You link to the marketing site for the product you are pushing. Biomechanics and science support the truth of my correction, not clever and selective advertisement. One appreciates your need as a blogger to have income from advertisements. I make my living from doing and publishing science. (And yes, I can definitely say, based on the study of biomechanics and personal experience with foot injuries, that the pedals I use are better because of foot placement.) Let’s leave it to the critical reader to decide where the pseudo-science and aggressive ego lie.

      That you would accuse me of doing something unethical or pushing something on people strictly for money says more about your world view than my actual actions. Creating a product that I think can help people and making money in the process is not wrong and is an easy way to attack the messenger instead of answering the questions raised by the science I reference.

      Also, it is easy to say that you have stuff to back up your claims but either share some studies or science that back up what you are saying or you are just another talking head repeating stuff that they have never looked into themselves. I have shared a lot of info and real science to back up my point of view and you have shared none…you’re right, I’ll let the readers decide who has has science on their side.

      • Catalyst Pedals really make a big difference. RaceRadio doesn’t know what he is talking about.
