Eugène Christophe, the French racing cyclist born in Paris on 22 January 1885, is regarded as the inventor of the pedal hook. In 1925 he sold his invention to Poutrait-Morin (now known as Zefal). He was director of the company until his death in 1970. Since then Zefal has been selling these legendary Christophe pedal hooks.
Hook for classic claw pedals. Enables more power transmission to the pedals when riding.
