Having the rear loop at the back of the pedal ensure the strap stays mid foot rather than just being over the toe area like the fabric straps that attach at the axle.

This is the ideal setup. Similar to what Hoy used. Only one NJS strap needed for one of the most successful and strongest track sprinters ever.


(Yes these are SRAM Omnium cranks. He took his personal race pedals and installed them on his "Hoy Fiorenzuola" entry level track bike line for a photoshoot when the bike was first released a few years ago.)

I wouldn't be surprised if the exact same system.

Further back on the foot provides better energy transfer instead of just through the metatarsals.
