Mobius Cycling is the company behind the Infinity Pedal.
I signed onto the Kickstarter for this product back in March 2014 and received my pedals in October 2015, so a long time between dates.
I went with the “Everything but the Kitchen sink” option, so Titanium shaft & Kickstarter Purple, plus the bonus hoody, t-shirt and drink bottle.
It didn’t take long to change over from the Shimano MTB cleats to the Mobius Infinity cleats. The Shimano cleat bolts use a 4mm allen key and Mobius a 3mm. Thye Mobius cleats are also marked with an L and an R. If you install them incorrectly you have to disengage the foot inwards towards the frame, not ideal.
BTW the Shimano cleats weighed in at:
Once I installed the Mobius cleats I had to bend out the leading edge of the cleat sides to touch the tread on the shoe. I used a small shifter to do this. The pic shoes the left shoe, with the toe at the bottom and you can see the two cleat sides bent outwards per the instructions supplied.
The pedals were also an easy install, the Shimano PD-520’s I was using came off with a 6mm allen key and weighed in at:
So a combined total of:
So I’m saving over half the weight by using the new system. Bonus.
The Mobius Infinity pedal uses an 8mm allen key but lacks any identifier as to which pedal is the right or left, a minor flaw IMO. A quick look at the thread determined which pedal was for which side, so with a smear of grease on the thread they were installed.
I jumped on the bike and it took a few goes to work out the difference in clipping in, it’s a toe in slide, rather than the push down from the top Shimano system. Disengaging is easy enough with a normal outward turn of the heel completing the job, same as what I am currently used to with the Shimano system.

Now that everything is all setup I’ll be using them on my commuting bike, so a number of stoppage times at lights for clipping in and out. I’ll come back and update this after a few rides with some feedback as to how I’ve found them.
