Designed for recreational cyclists who want something halfway between the freedom of flat pedals and the security of clipless pedals, the new Mavic EZ Ride system adopts a novel approach for a simple solution.

There’s no physical clipping in required nor do you need to twist to disengage, simply a case of lifting your foot away. It could be about the simplest approach for someone who might want the benefits of a full-blown clipless system without making the perilous plunge.
