Dual sided SPD type clipless/cage pedals
The term schizophrenia comes from Latin and means “split mind.”
If you can’t decide between a decent alloy cage pedal that can accept regular sports footwear, or a “clipless” clip-in type pedal system that requires special cycling shoes with cleats…, then Genetic Schizo may be just what you are looking for.
If your favourite bike is one that you like to ride with cycling specific footwear – then, you almost certainly will appreciate the benefits of using a “clipless” system pedal, but, if you also use the same bike to pop down to the local Post Office (or wherever – hick !). whilst wearing normal sports shoes, and you don’t want to have to change either your shoes or your pedals each time… then the double sided Schizo pedals could be the ideal pedal for you.
Genetic Schizo pedals are balanced so that the regular alloy cage face will usually present itself. making a quick dab and a get-away problem free with or without clipless footwear and then can easily be flipped over once riding, to gain the full benefits of a clipless system.
Clipless pedal systems require specific ‘clipless compatible shoes to be worn that accept the pedal cleats into the soles, many types are available from bicycle shops.
The Genetic Schizo uses the popular SPD compatible clipless cleat system with a knee joint friendly 4 degrees of lateral float when clipped in.
The clipless system also includes an adjustable tension foot release – which is especially useful for those who aren’t used to being clipped in.
Optional safety reflectors are included.
