Customize & Protect with Pedals Protectors

Simple New Product for Unicyclists

PedalX.com is pleased to introduce a new product for unicyclists, created by unicyclists. It’s called the Pedal Protector and fits into the end of most cycle platform pedals to color-customize your unicycle and reduce shock caused by pedal bashing. Less shock means pedals and cranks will stay tight & last longer. Saves maintenance & money!

Pedal Protectors also help protect other stuff from pedal scratches-- like gym floor, car paint, truck bed, and other cycles stacked together. Made in USA from a tough stain-resistant elastomer, they install quickly to keep you riding. They each weight less than 1 ounce and are 3/8" thick.

Now available from Unicycle.com for $5.89 per set, shipping included. Colors are Blue, Red, Pink, Yellow, Grunge Orange, Purple, Black, Pine Green, and Bio-Freak Green. They come in 3 sizes to fit many types of pedals.

Story of unicyclist who developed it and why

Cheers - PedalX.com

hey i got some of those and they seem to be holding up since moab so if your wondering if they work, yes they do, and they are great for when your uni is falling down stairs it just doent sound as bad. i found thy dont interfear with pedal grinding either.:smiley:

Hey hey,

On uni.com sales page,it shows a double asterisk for the JC pedals, which indicates a pdf for the mods to the pedal. That link did not work for me. I froze up my computer, or it just takes too long to load.

You got some in purple, great:D

pleased to say my set in BioFreak green is still holding up after nearly two years!..great product.

I still have a pair of these myself, and I do like them.
But PedalProtector.com nor PedalX.com doesn’t seem to work.
And unicycle.com is out of stock.
Did the product die?

I also still have a pair that I like a lot and I was hoping to buy another set of them. It looks like they went the way of the dinosaur. If anyone happens to know of a similar product that is currently available, please post information about it. Thanks!

I probably still may have a blue pair sitting on blue pedals,
…and since the beginning being unable to remove them.

My previous post was from 2010.
And because of above I made my own pedals in 2012, with solid rods of PET or likely PE.
In Brixen Marco Vitale laughed at them, stating they would brake easily, and metal is much stronger.
I’d say it can deal with impact much better than metal - and also the floor likes it better.
So that’s now 12 years ago - still use the very same pair, barely showing any wear or tear.

@leo Very interesting! Haha, yeah there’s definitely no way to remove those suckers without destroying them, as far as I can tell! Well If your blue pedals are halfway decent and you ever decide you’d be interested in selling them, please let me know.

As they say, necessity is the mother of invention. I admire your ingenuity. I’m glad you didn’t listen to Marco Vitale and put your plastic pedals to the test. I’m sure you know what they say about people who laugh in Brixen! If you have the time and inclination to post photos of the pedals you made, it would be great to see them.
