Found: Ultra-Minimalist Titanium VP Blade Flat Pedal

20130223-163642.jpg

VP’s new blade is easily the leanest pedal we’ve seen. The platform is lost-wax cast titanium with a forged/CNC machined ti axle. It rolls on LSL (lightweight self lubricating) bushing and sealed ball bearings.

Claimed weight is 260g per pair and suggested retail when they officially launch later this year is likely going to be “very expensive”. Admittedly, it’s aimed at the upscale commuter or casual fat bike rider. Yes, we very much want a set.

For the rest of us, they’ll also have a full chromoly version that’ll actually be affordable. Look for both at Eurobike.

  1. Admittedly, it’s aimed at the upscale commuter or casual fat bike rider.

    Repeated for emphasis, as to not get a bunch of whiny and speculative posts. Yes, I’m waiting for new of a nice MTB pedal from VP too. This at least shows how “avante garde” they can be with designs, but with MTB, it’s hard to get away from basic proven designs.
