Once you’ve been riding clipless for long enough, it’s easy to forget that many cyclists aren’t clipping in. Instead, it’s probably safe to say that there are more riders world wide pedaling around in whatever footwear they have (or barefoot even). For those riders still rocking their street shoes, FlyByke has what they think is a better
mouse foot trap.
Still very much a prototype, the idea was sent to us by the inventor – Duncan White of New Zealand. He mentioned that after becoming frustrated with the typical toe cages or clipless shoes and cleats, he came up with the idea.
Compared to most toe clips, the FlyByke design is unique as it includes a winglet that curves down and over the shoe preventing the shoe from moving outwards. Duncan says the final design may have dual winglets for even better support of your shoe. There’s also a optional flipper which gets installed on the back end of the pedal to make it easier to get your shoe into the holster.
Duncan tells us that his patent has been published and is looking for feedback and to hopefully make the right connections to bring the FlyByke Pedal Holster to market.
