Review: Catalyst Pedals
We’ve been hearing about the Catalyst Pedals for a while. They’re huge and are meant to support your foot for a more mid-foot pedaling position. Are they any good? Did we notice a difference? What are the pros and cons? Find out in this video.

I have used these pedals for two years on my Rans Stratus XP long wheel base recumbent. I had a problem with my feet going numb prior to these pedals. Now, that problem has been virtually eliminated by using these pedals. Also, I can definitely say you can exert more power pushing on this pedal than a standard pedal. Finally, on my recumbent, I have two riding positions with these pedals….one using the ball of my foot and one using the middle portion of my foot. All I have to do is scoot a little forward on the seat to use the middle portion of my foot on the pedal. When riding 50-80 a day it is advantageous to have different riding positions, even on a recumbent. Oh, and one last thing, no problem with wheel interference on my “large” size recumbent.

Russ, I have been loving your videos/website/FB/attitudes. I have been using the Catalyst Pedals for about 3 years on my road ebikes….about 6400miles per year for the last 4 years. Great way to enjoy my retirement. Arthritic ankles were really bothering me and the Catalyst Pedals puts the strain on my whole foot. This was an enabler and keeps the pain tolerable after rides. For me, it is all about riding the next day and these pedals keep me going. I am 6’4.5” and do not have any problems with toe overlap with the front wheel, as you suggested in the review. I use the XL version and wear Xero shoes(large toe box and flexible.) Keep up the great work.
