CK-UB2RH FPC pedal

CK-UB2RH Rice Husk pedal

Award   GREEN WINNER 2016
Category   Bike Components
Company   Chien King Industrial Co., LTD

This pedal is made of organic fiber particulate composites. Rice husks, the waste product left over from processing rice, have replaced plastics as the primary material, thereby turning waste into an environmentally friendly product that reduces our carbon footprint. The natural hardness, strength, and grip characteristics of rice husks were taken into consideration, and inspired us to design this pedal. The pedal body is ergonomically designed, but has a simple aesthetic, and gives off the pleasant, natural scent of rice crops.

Outstanding in the following evaluation criteria

  • Degree of innovation
  • Functionality
  • Choice of materials
  • Sustainability

Jury Statement

This commendable development in recycling impressed us a great deal. The result is a very robust and low-cost solution that uses waste from the rice farming industry.
