Our Story

Creative product solutions for every level of athlete.

Start with the basics

Meet the unmet needs

Great products arise out of unmet needs and, sometimes, out of tragedy or accidents.  Such is the case with our flagship product, the VFS-10 Fitness Pedal. The inability to quickly unclip from pedals on road and mountain bikes has caused countless serious injuries (including more than one for our founder).  In gyms, the most common laments revolve around baskets and straps on cardio equipment.  We developed the VFS-10 Fitness Pedal (as well as the soon-to-come VTR-10 Trail and Road pedal) to solve these problems. We use the products we sell—it’s personal for us.  We believe you’ll benefit from them, too.

'VECTUS' IS LATIN FOR "I RIDE"

It is what millions of people do every day around the world—on their road or mountain bikes; at home or in the gym.  It is estimated that there are 2 billion bikes on the planet, used for everything from working out to commuting, from touring vacation sites to cruising local streets and enjoying the great outdoors. With all this activity, it’s surprising to realize that riders only interact with three parts of a bike: the handle bars, the seat, and the pedals.  The pedals is where all the work is done; therefore, it makes sense that the pedals need to be comfortable, sturdy, and safe.

It was an incident in which my pedals failed to perform as needed at a critical moment that led to the invention of the Vectus True Release pedals. I was going uphill on a technical trail on my mountain bike when I hit a rock, stopping my momentum. I began to fall... in slow motion...but couldn't unclip!   I distinctly remember having time to think about the coming pain as I toppled over.  Sure enough, the hand I stuck our to break my fall got folded back onto my forearm, straining or tearing many of the muscles and tendons in my hand and wrist. 
The injury forced me off the bike for several months as I convalesced.  It was during that time I conceived of a concept that would hold your feet securely on the pedals while allowing for a quick and easy (fail-safe) way of bailing out.  Thus, with the brilliant engineering skills of Bob Glaspie, we developed the VFS-10 and VTR-10 pedals.
