    Pedals break down into two basic classes, platform and clipless.

    Platforms are basically the pedals everyone is familiar with. They don’t require any special shoes or anything. Some platforms come with toe clips. They’re cages that you slip your feet into. These toe clips allow for better power transfer.

    The other types of pedals are called clipless. These pedals contain a retention system that allows the bottom of the rider’s shoe to clip into the pedal via a special cleat. These pedals require the rider to wear special cycling shoes. They’re call clipless because they provide the increase in power transfer without the toe “clips".
