I think the Slot cover of the pedalplate is too soft. Often my heel goes stuck into the slot-hole and also it fasten the wear of my round heel of my sparco shoes. I think this is an little oversight and I think believe it should be improved by either a harder slot cover or perhaps a thicker one. Or make the pedals longer, so the slot cover is more onto the beginning of the pedalplate instead of near the pedals.
I am already looking for a cover, but it's hard to do cause it must not too be too thick or too soft or too hard.
Just did put some aluminium foil into the empty slots. Let see how that turn out.
I also notice that soles of shoes wear faster cause of the bristly coating/surface of the CSL Elite Pedals
Anyone else experiencing the above? the position/angle of my pedals , combined with my pedal foot motions result in constant heel catches on the rubber and into the slot. really off putting. i find i need to constantly adjust my feet which is not helping me form muscle memory and is just distracting.
is it the same for everyone? do i just need to try adjusting my position, pedal distance, angle etc - or is there some other solution (ideally a hard cover) but anything considered please.
I know it sounds pretty dumb (does to me at least) but it is killing my immersion when I am thinking about my feet at the expense of my hands!
Thanks in advance,
