Internship Code: TPDE16

Company Description:

The founder started this company out of his frustration of not being able to find a clipless bike pedal that worked for him. After falling during a triathlon because he couldn’t unclip during a turn, he decided to develop a bike pedal that provides safety without losing out on performance.

Since then, they’ve spent two years building the technology that allowed them to create the product. Cycling with cleats shows just how the power transfers from your body to your bike. But, an expected stop, a steep hill, or bump in the road makes you regret putting the cleats on and getting chained to your bike in the first place.

Their product is for the daily commuter, triathlete, beginner rider, and professional alike. The company hopes to bring customers the experience of professional race pedal set in a way that prioritizes their safety and maximizes their efficiency.
