The MagLOCK bicycle pedals are innovative magnetic pedals invented by cyclist Dave Williams to help address some of the common problems with clipless pedals. Specifically, many cyclists don't like the feeling of being snapped in to their pedals in that manner.

These magnetic pedals -- as their name might suggest -- use magnets rather than physical mechanisms to keep riders' feet securely in place. Each MagLOCK pedal has an anodized aluminum body embedded with 10 removable cylindrical neodymium magnets that work with cycling-specific shoes to keep the rider's feet magnetically in place. Riders can quickly and easily release their feet by simply pronating their feet into a forward position.

The MagLOCK pedals will appeal to mountain bikers who like the idea of a securely fastening bicycle pedal minus the physical interference.
