REM are most powerful in a north/south (straight up/down) direction on the pedals. When you start to move east/west the force of the REMmagnets decreases and it is easier to step out. You’re never “locked in” as with a clipless pedal: Only magnetic force is holding your foot to the REMpedal™, and you can pull off in almost any direction. So there’s no muscle memory that needs to be trained, and releasing is completely intuitive and natural, unlike clipless pedals.
NO! Neodymium’s magnetic charge will last a lifetime. You can even recharge traditional magnets with them.
YES. By adjusting the number and position of the traction pins, the outsole will have less contact with the pin and will be easier to rotate/slide off of the pedal and vice versa.
With the REMPedal™ System’s REMmagnets you are connected to the bike, as with clipless pedals, but you also enjoy the freedom of a flat/platform pedal, because you are not locked in. REMpedal™ offer the safety of platform and the performance of clipless.
