Back in 2016 Crank Brothers introduced a new set of combination clipless/flat pedals called the Double Shot. With just one side to clip-in, the hybrid pedals promise more secure riding on the platform-only side. Now a new entry-level version brings both price & weight down with an all composite body.
Crankbrothers Double Shot 1 hybrid clipless/flat pedals
The new Double Shot 1 makes it cheaper to ride platforms or clipped-in on the same hybrid two-sided pedals. One side for flats. One side for clipless. With a lightweight, fully composite pedal body, the Double Shot 1s actually drop more than 60g relative to either of the more expensive alloy bodied versions. The 331g pedal pair retail for just $60 in either red, black, or blue.
The Double Shot 2 pedals mold-in traction ribs & small diamond plate tread areas over the axles on both sides. They feature a large platform on the flat side with molded in composite traction pins, and a wide open shape that keeps the clipless wings away from your flat pedal shoes. On the other side, a reduced body profile gives ample shoe support and a single pair of stamped steel wings to clip into.
The pedals feature a long spindle for a 57mm Q-factor to work well with wide platform shoes. They spin on a combination of Crankbrothers’ Igus LL-glide ‘bearing’ on the inside (a composite bushing) and a small Enduro cartridge bearing on the outer edge. With their new double seal setup, Crankbrothers says this system performs better & lasts longer than all bearing solutions in wet & dirty real world riding conditions. Crankbrothers guarantees the chromoly steel spindled pedals for five years. They also include a set of their classic 15°/20° release brass cleats.
Aluminum bodied Double Shot 3 & 2
The premium 403g Double Shot 3 with cast alloy body, replaceable traction pins & the same bearing setup is still available for $125. As is the 395g Double Shot 2 with cast alloy body & pins for $90.
