Fyxation Gates Slim Pedal Hits the Market, A Low Profile BMX-Style Platform
Earlier this year we reviewed the Fyxation Gates pedals laced with Gates straps. After testing them for a summer, they proved worthy to mash, securing the feet without tearing up the kicks. Today, Fyxation released a similar, thinner platform with all the fun colors of the original – the Gates Slim.
Similar to the Gates, it gets a nylon body and a chro-mo spindle with rebuildable ball bearings. They’re 14mm thick (50% thinner than the originals) and 75g lighter, weighing in at 345g a piece. Pricing is $30 for the set, $70 for a kit that includes foot straps. Colors offered are black, white, green, orange, and pink.
