Ankle and knee injuries due to wearing of the joints are common problems amongst sports cyclists. These problems are often caused by the fixation of the feet in clipless pedals. The CORe prevents injuries by offering controlled movement of the feet during cycling, using patented technology. Because of the increased comfort, the pedal could also improve performance.
I worked on this project in a team of six industrial product designers and in cooperation with sports doctors. The project was structured as an iterative process, creating loads of (rapid) prototypes. This way of working was very interesting and lead to a great project. We are currently in contact with potential partners so the project is still ongoing.
