The Aeffect pedal is the mid level piece with an extruded body and about 100cm² platform. It’ll have 10 bottom loading pins per side, 20 per pedal, that’ll have a hex shaped tip (these are preproduction). The slightly concaved platform is 14mm tall at the center and 17mm at the leading/trailing edges. It’s rolling on a chromoly spindle supported by a cartridge bearing and bushing. The end cap has a removable bolt for quick greasing. Target weight is 375g for the pair with pins. Black, red or blue for $119. The top end Atlas is “everything we wanted to put into a pedal,” says Heynen. It gets a hollow chromoly axle with four cartridge bearings.The 100x114mm platform has a double concave shape that’s 12mm thin at the center and 14mm at the circumference.
Another unique feature is angled pins on the front and back to really dog into your shoe and help you pull through the pedal stroke and prevent slipping.It’s forged then CNC machined into final shape. Weight is 355g (claimed). $179 in black, red, blue and green.
