Portalmod's MOD Duo prototype mounted in acrylic housing

The MOD system from Brazil's Portalmod was born of a desire to break free from the confines of carefully considered manufacturer-supplied digital effects for guitar and bass, and sail into the vast uncharted territory of independent developer-generated plug-ins. The hardware features its own mini computing system capable of wirelessly receiving user-customized virtual pedalboards configured via a browser-based interface. Having sold out of its original Quadra model, the company is currently making plans to release its next product, the MOD Duo, in the US.  Read More

Fixing the FlyPedal adapter with cleats will allow it to click into your clipless pedal, m...

Whether you're a biker who values the comfort of platform pedals or you favor the efficiency only the clipless variety can offer, there will likely have been times when you wished you had the best of both worlds. FlyPedals are adapters that can turn almost any clipless pedal into a flat surface for regular shoes, meaning there's no need to trod around on those awkward cleats when you're only making a quick trip to the shops.  Read More

BIUS1 pedals can move in and out or twist laterally, in order to accommodate the rider's l...

When we walk or run, our feet are able to land on the ground in whatever orientation makes life easiest for our hips, knees and ankles. When we're on a bike, however, our feet are at least somewhat held in place against the pedals. This can damage our leg joints, if they're forced to move in a stressful fashion. Germany's BioConform is now offering what it claims is a solution, in the form of its adaptable BIUS1 pedals.  Read More

The Talking Pedal guitar effects unit emulates the vowel sounds of a human voice in a simi...

Although I grew up surrounded by the big hair rock of Bon Jovi and the like, my first introduction to the Talk Box guitar effect was not Living on a Prayer but Joe Walsh's Rocky Mountain Way over a decade earlier, followed a little later by Peter Frampton's epic Do You Feel Like We Do. Although it continues to be used by a good many guitar gods to this day, the long tube that invariably runs up a microphone stand to the player's mouth does make it something of a special addition to a guitarist's effects arsenal rather than a regular feature. The Talking Pedal from Electro-Harmonix does away with the tube altogether in a rocking chassis expression pedal with no moving parts.  Read More

The Ultralite bicycle pedal system is claimed to be the lightest in the world, and feature...

Even if you’re not a cyclist, you’re probably aware that a great deal of today’s higher-end bikes have pedals that the rider’s shoes simply click in and out of. These are known as clipless pedal systems, as they’re an alternative to using toe clips and straps. They first gained popularity in the mid-80s and ever since then, bicycle components companies have been trying to make them lighter and simpler. Now, Colorado-based Ultralite Sports is about to release a clipless pedal system that it claims is the lightest in the world – and the pedal itself just looks like a bare spindle.  Read More

Pedal Lock clamps to the wheel of a bicycle to prevent a thief from making a quick or clea...

Owning and riding a bike can be very rewarding; it gives you the freedom to explore your surroundings, is cheaper than public transport in the longterm, and healthier than driving a car. Unfortunately being a bike owner means dealing with the possibility of having your favored mode of transport stolen, especially in urban areas where the incidence of bike theft is high. This means the majority of bike owners need to own and use a lock every time they park their bike up. Two Taiwanese designers have concocted a new way of preventing bike theft: one that sees the pedals used to both clamp the wheel of, and (if necessary) incapacitate, the bicycle.  Read More

Tioga's ZEROaxle MT-ZERO is one of the thinnest mountain bike pedals available, as it has ...

While many mountain bikers like so-called “clipless” pedals, in which cleats on the bottom of their shoes click in and out of a mechanism in the pedal, others prefer the unfettered feeling of platform pedals. Generally speaking, the two types of pedals are about the same thickness. Given that platforms don’t need to contain any springs or other cleat-retaining gizmos, however, they could be much thinner ... if only it weren’t for that axle running through them. Well, Tioga has done away with the axle, in its new ZEROaxle MT-ZERO pedal. At a maximum thickness of 7 mm, it’s being billed as the “world’s thinnest dual-concave mountain bike pedal.”  Read More

A unique system allows users of the Swiss Voltitude pedelec bike to fold or unfold it in o...

Last January, we said that the Robrady-designed db0 was one of the best folding electric bikes we'd seen. The Swiss entry into the market has turned its back on this traditional bicycle-with-motor design in favor of a folding pedal-electric assist scooter. Users are said to be able to fold or unfold the Voltitude bike in about one second, and with one hand, thanks to its unique EasyFold system. Swiss and EU legislation limits the electric assist to 15.5 mph (25 kph), although some frantic footwork could see it achieve faster speeds if required, and the onboard battery is good for between 12 and 25 miles (20 to 40 km) between charges.  Read More

DigiTech has announced the forthcoming availability of a multi-effects processor for the b...

The rhythmic fretwork of the bass guitarist is almost always an essential element in modern music, but when it comes to effects processors, most pedals seem to head for lead guitar stardom. DigiTech is about to treat the rich and versatile electric bass sound to a new multi-effects unit that puts hundreds of sounds, effects, amplifiers and speaker cabinets at a bass player's disposal.  Read More

Gig-fx has released a new Megawah model to specs supplied by noted guitarist and songwrite...

Guitarist and songwriter Peter Frampton – of Humble Pie fame – has put his name to a new Megawah effects pedal built by Gig-fx. Designed to meet his exacting specifications, the signature analog pedal features four settings to produce the established Megawah sound, but with a slightly warmer high end and more defined lower end response. Players can also choose a classic crying wah, an adjustable funky envelope wah and a variable rate autowah.  Read More
