If you ride flat-pedals or are thinking about switching to flats, check out these pedals that we carry at Colorado Backcountry Biker. Each has specific benefits, so take this time to review these 4 flat-pedal options at CBB to find the perfect ones for you!
Canfield Crampon Ultimate Pedals – Canfield is a Fruita, Colorado-based company. We carry several colors but not all of them. If we do not have the color in-stock, Canfield is close and can drop off your preferred color quickly. These are the thinnest pedals we carry in the shop. They are great for ground clearance above our rocky trails. The Ultimate pedals feature a convex design, which prevents foot fatigue as it encourages your foot to naturally flex around the pedal. With 10 pins per side and the large grooved platform, your feet will stay put on these pedals allowing you to climb and descend to your heart’s content. These are the lightest pedals, weighing in at just 342g with a profile of 105x105mm. Retail for the Ultimates are $150.
Crankbrothers Stamp Pedals – these pedals come in a large or small version, so depending on your foot size, you can find a pedal that fits your needs. These pedals feature a concave platform, allowing your foot to sit in a little pocket, helping with slippage. The Crankbrothers pedal has 10 adjustable pins. The small size weighs 345g with a 100x100mm profile, while the large is 375g and a 114x111mm profile. The Stamp’s retail for just $49.99.
RaceFace Chester Pedals – these pedals are a nylon composite with a concave design with 8 replaceable pins per side. These pedals hold up to shock vibrations from hitting them on rocks and roots. Hey, it happens! They come in 9 colors, so you’re sure to match with whatever part of your bike that you want. They weigh in at 360g and have a profile of 101x110mm. Retail for the Chester pedals are some of the least expensive on the list at $49.99.
Spank Oozy Trail Pedal – with a forged alloy body, these pedals are ready for whatever conditions you throw at them. Spank’s Oozy pedals come in four colors and weigh 360g per set. These have an 18 pin assembly giving you tons of grip on the trails. The profile of the Oozy’s is just 100x100mm with a concave configuration. These retail for $129.
