The bike pedals are a part of the crankset and are mounted on the cranks. The cyclist places their feet there to exert a pressure which will actuate the pedal and transmit the energy to the derailleur to turn the wheels and advance the bike.
There are several types of bicycle pedals: flat pedals or automatic pedals, like the Look pedals on which the shoes are directly attached to the pedals.
Firstly, road bikes were equipped with flat pedals with a strap to keep the foot fixed to the pedal. Today, on road and mountain bikes, we use automatic bike pedals on which the bike shoes are clipped. Bike shoes are indeed equipped with a wedge that fits on the pedal; to clip it, you just need to press the tip of the foot on the pedal, and to unclip, simply make an outward rotating movement with the foot.
With this system the foot is held on the pedal and makes it possible to optimise the pedaling by pushing and pulling on the pedals, thus obtaining a much better yield.
If you are a beginner or occasional practitioner, you'll choose flat pedals or hybrid models with a flat face and an automatic face.
If you are a confirmed cyclist, you'll opt for automatic pedals, based on the weight, the impact resistance, the width of the support surface and the angular freedom according to your practice (little angular freedom makes it possible to maintain the pedaling force but can generate tension in the knees).
