Taipei Show: Titanium Blades, Plastic Pedals with Metal Pins, Bottom Brackets, and more from VP Components
As is sometimes the case, the VP Blade Titanium pedal started simply as a design exercise. While it was never meant for production, consumer demand was high enough that they made it happen. The result is a handmade titanium pedal with a spidery body that is meant to flex slightly and help absorb impacts. Now in its 3rd revision, the shape has changed slightly but the result is still a sand cast titanium pedal that is finished by hand with a full titanium axle.
