The Flat Pedal PC2 from Ergon is a power pedal that aims to delight every urban cyclist. The PC2 is made from a lightweight durable material called GFK Composite, which was developed by Ergon with Magura. The main feature that sets the PC2 flat pedal apart is its 3M-SafetyWalkTM portion on the pedal’s platform. This is what keeps your foot from slipping and maximizes the transfer of power from foot to pedal.

The PC2 has polymer bearings with radial seals and an inner-stop to position your foot correctly on the pedal. To minimize the Q-factor, it has a narrow axle construction and a contoured platform. The pedal is designed with a 6 degree angle on the platform to minimize hip-knee-foot complaints with the correct biomechanics and proper alignment of joints.

The Ergon Flat Pedal PC2 has integrated reflectors for visibility and was a Eurobike 2010 Awardee.

Around 40 cyclists lose their lives on the road in Sweden each year and about 30,000 are injured. The statistics are undeniable, which prompted a Swedish company to create an airbag bicycle helmet designed to deploy immediate protection for its user in the instant that the inevitable occurs.

The airbag bicycle helmet is the brain child of two industrial students, namely Anna Haupt and Terese Alstin. Back in 2006 they were awarded a grant of SEK 200,000 to develop the actual product and set up their own company.

Called the “ HÖVDING”, which means “chieftain”, It is conveniently worn as a collar around the cyclist’s neck to which the airbag is housed. The airbag comes in an array of colors. Tested on cycling dummies at a maximum speed of 20 mph, the helmet is made to withstand collision impacts from the rear.
