Illuminating Pedals Light Up Ljubljana

Prize winning illuminating pedals. 

Velo City

The Velo-city conference is the European Cyclists’ Federation (ECF) annual flagship event. Organized by the ECF together Velo City takes place in a new city each year. Velo-city is the World Cycling Summit serving as a global platform for knowledge exchange and policy transfer. Smart Pedal Pitch is an international competition taking place at Velo-city every year, seeking the latest market-ready cycling innovations to shape the future of urban cycling. It was a unique opportunity for startups and SMEs to participate or even create a crucial turning point in the process towards healthier, sustainable and economically dynamic city life.

PeachyKeen Power Pedal

During lockdown, PeachyKeen developed the Power Pedal as it was able to be designed from home. The PeachyKeen Power Pedal are illuminating pedals designed with LED lighting to provide cyclists with visibility to other road users. 

The unique battery free pedal lights are designed to provide 360 visibility that can be seen up to 1km away; this is especially useful at traffic lights and junctions being able to keep flashing when stopped for up to 7 minutes. 

The pedals will begin illuminating after 10 seconds of pedalling. They do not require mains power charging or batteries – completely maintenance free!

The pedal has been designed and manufactured in the UK; using completely recyclable components. Optimising additive manufacturing technologies. Each order is printed, packaged and shipped right here from our Scottish based workshop. 

The Competition

Within two weeks of entering the competition, PeachyKeen was delighted to have made it to the top 10 finalists and offered a place at the semi finals at the velo city conference in Slovenia.

Customer Success Manager, Joa, was nominated to represent PeachyKeen in Ljubljana on the second day of the conference. The semi finals included brilliant innovations such as a bicycle security device, last mile distribution cargo bikes and buffer pads for bike lanes made from recycled plastic. 

To PeachyKeen’s pleasant surprise, the illuminating pedal made it to the top three finalists and was invited to present on the main stage. The final choice came down to a public vote via the conference app. PeachyKeen were honoured to be awarded third place and receive a prize of  3000€.
