Looks like an old Keywin pedal.

Looks like early keywin pedal model.
The backpiece look a lot like current models.

It’s an early Keywin pedal, made right here in New Zealand.

Yup, old Keywin pedal

Chris - 08/06/12 - 9:35am

Definitely Keywin. Was surprised to hear they still made them.

Gordo - 08/06/12 - 11:31am

Yep, a Keywin. I had some in 1987 and they are still around. Relly light set up.

Carl Hoefer - 08/06/12 - 11:48am

A Keywin for sure. Great pedals.

It was 1983 when the Keywin Speed Pedal was born right here in the land down under – New Zealand

Keywin Speed pedal. Similar to the Vortech Avenir pedal also. But it is the Keywin.

Early Keywin from the 1990’s. Good old New Zealand made. The Marco Polo Team are sponsored by them. Great pedals, that goes for the Ti version and ChrMo (yeah I have them on all my road bikes). Good thing on the track too as they can be locked completely from disengagement. The Mud Man MTB version is not so good (in my opinion).

Indeed a very early Keywin pedal from NZ. These came out not long after LOOK released their clip pedal. Put these on my tri bike not long after they were released. The cleat used two bolts in the LOOK setup and then had to be screwed to the shoe sole. They were very durable and easy to walk in. They clipped in by rotating inwards around the small central post and clipped out by twisting out. From memory they cost NZ $110. Great minimalist pedal.
