NIKOLA PEDALS ARE NOW AVAILABLE — REVOLUTIONARY NEW PEDAL TECHNOLOGY COMBINES MOVEMENT FROM SKATER AND CYCLIST TO PRODUCE IMPROVED POWER, EFFICIENCY, COMFORT
CLEVELAND — December, 2014 — Nikola Pedals, a revolutionary new road pedal that combines the movements of a skater and cyclist into one smooth motion, is now available for purchase at www.nikolainnovation.com.
Studying the motion of speed skaters and cyclists has been the foundation of this new technology called “Zivo” which has Serbian origination meaning “alive”. Nikola completed studies at the Human Performance Lab of Cleveland State University refining the Zivo technology producing peak power improvement of 7% in a 30 second Wingate tests and efficiency improvement of 2.1%. This new Nikola pedal motion, which is provides up to 25mm of lateral movement on the spindle, creates comfort with riders’ knees and hips with its patented Synchronized Q-factor generated by Zivo. Two versions are now offered, one in Titanium at $549, the second in Stainless for $339. Both pedals are using a standard 3-hole standard style cleat and compatible with any 9/16” crank-arm threading.
“The idea behind Nikola Innovation’s new pedals evolved while rollerblading and cycling as my regular exercising activities and realizing how my legs felt differently after each sport,” said Nick Stevovich, Nikola Innovation’s founder and CEO. “I started contemplating on the possibility of combining these two unique motions into one utilizing a standard bike. The goals were: it must to be intuitive to ride and easily incorporated into a typical bike design. As of today, over 200 riders have experienced the pedals stating the motion feels natural and how we are meant to ride a bicycle — while providing improved efficiency, comfort and power.”
