As one of the newest brands to QBP’s ever growing product line, iSSi pedals have been designed to provide options over the standard SPD. Introduced just before Frostbike, iSSi started with their colorful XC oriented pedal in 8 different colors. Weighing in at 312g per pair, the $75 pedals use single outboard bearing and inner DU bushing, but are also sold in an upgraded Duro version which uses dual outer bearings and a single inner bearing that replaces the DU bushing. iSSi pedals also have +6 and +12mm spindle options which are shipping now.
During Frostbike we were shown a very early prototype of their new trail pedal, which like more aggressive pedals offers a bit more support around the clip. iSSi was showing off new samples of the trail pedal at Saddle Drive, that while not completely finished, were looking much more complete than the original prototype.
Details plus actual weights, next…
The original prototype above had a chunkier cage that also included traction pins at the front. The new and likely production cage has a much more dynamic profile and of course comes in multiple colors.
The trail pedal will also come in two versions with a standard bearing/bushing combo or the triple bearing Duro option. Pricing is said to be $95 for the standard, and $120 for the Duro, in 8 different colors. On the scale the standard or Duro version didn’t seem to make a difference with both pedals weighing in at 206g. There is a possibility these may still change slightly, but expect them to be available in the not too distant future.
