Special Heel and Foot Support for Bicycle and Recumbent Pedals
For many riders, holding one or both feet on bicycle pedals through an entire revolution is difficult. There are bio-mechanics that make keeping the foot centered a challenge for any person with an injury from the hip down to the ankle. Thankfully, there are a number of solutions for riders.
Recumbent Bike and Trike Pedal Slings
The TerraTrike Comfort Pedal Kit is one of the most popular pedal slings on the market. It is a conversion kit that bots onto most standard bicycle pedals where one of the reflectors is located. Total assembly time is about 6 minutes. The sling is fully adjustable because it's made of two industrial strength double-sided velcro straps.
The TerraTrike Platform Pedals with reinforced Heel Carrier is an outstanding solution for any trike recumbent rider with difficulty holding eight foot in place on the pedal. Unlike the heel slings which allow some movement of the foot on the pedal, the TerraTrike Platform Pedal secures the entire foot (with shoe) in place and holds it there with two Velcro straps. The platform pedals replace the standard pedal set on your trike with a 9/16" spindle.
