SOC13: Xpedo Introduces Ultralight Flat Pedals
While flat pedals are virtually extinct on the World Cup circuit, they’re still wildly popular at the local trail head and amongst dirt jumpers. This year, Xpedo has an extremely thin set of light weight pedals in several colors called the Spry on display.
Rotating on a combination of sealed bearings and bushing on a hollow ChroMo axle – you won’t believe the weight.
At just 250 grams a set, we can’t wait to get our hands on a pair of the wide bodied (100x106x12mm) pedals. Expected availability is mid-summer. MSRP is $79.
Clips are more your style? The recently released Baldwin pedals have graduated from prototype to production. The robust pedals come in at 332 gms with a CroMo axle pair or 292 for Ti. Well below the weight Xpedo was aiming for last year.
Also on display were several sets of mini pedals. These R-FORCE 6 pedals weight a scant 215 grams with a CroMo axle (or 170 gms with a Ti axle) ,and are perfect if you run SPDs on your road bike.
