What are clipless shoes?
Clipless shoes—the kind that clip right into your pedals—take a bit of getting used to but they offer a lot of benefits. They help you make the most efficient use of your power so less goes to waste. Their stiff soles help ensure the energy you’re creating with your legs transfers directly into powering your bike. You’re also able to use your entire pedal stroke, including the upstroke, because you’re attached to your pedals. Once you’re clipped in, you have more control over your bike and your feet remain in an optimal position on your pedals. This way you can enjoy your ride or focus on training hard without needing to readjust your feet every few pedal strokes.
