The Czech company develops, manufactures and sells products for cycling. One of the company’s innovations is patented release system on cycling pedals that allows comfortable pedal entry and exit. The company is looking for distribution partners on the basis of distribution services agreement.



The company and its brand was established in 2005 in the Czech Republic and carries the handwriting of aggressive bike sports thanks to its owner who became the best Czech downhill mountain rider (DH rider) – as a downhill with a gradual transformation into trails and XC. Company offers a wide range of clothing and accessories for cyclists and their beloved bikes.
Complete product development is being carried out in the Czech Republic within a team of designers. Tests are carried out by the company’s team riders who provide quick feedback for necessary changes in development and/or for upgrades. The brand focuses on higher quality products that are offered at the cost of middle class.
The innovative C-PED pedals offer new patented release system. The pedals with this cycling shoe mounting mechanism have a very good power transfer to the chain ring and provide good comfort for pedal entry and exit. In crisis situations (upon sudden stop, fall etc.) the mounting system behaves like the ski safety binding. At the same time, the system is designed in such a manner that the cycling shoe is adequately fixed to the pedal and no undesired shoe exit occurs. The cleat has a replaceable PU (polyurethane) insert on one side for determination of the necessary fixation and pressure in the pedal groove. The cleat allows a “physiological” sideways swing on the shoe (approx. +/-3°). The pedal is balanced in such a manner that the entry surface is always on top.
The system is compatible with most SPD shoes on the market. The pedal is suited for cyclists who require riding improvement. It is a suitable solution for most bicycle types (XC, urban, gravel) and also for electric bikes.
The Czech company cooperates with retailers abroad and is open for new contacts in Europe and worldwide. Partner sought should have profound experience in selling products for cycling.

Advantages & innovations

Cooperation plus value: 
The pedals offer an unique stepping mechanism. While maintaining very good power transfer efficiency to the chain ring the pedals provide exceptional comfort within pedal entry and exit.
