The new Mallet E 11 is the premium version of their popular enduro pedal.


The Mallet pedal from Crank Brothers is one of the most popular clipless platforms on the market. It’s available in DH and Enduro specific versions.

To help shave a few grams, Crankbrothers put the pedal on a titanium diet. The result is the new Mallet E 11. It shares all the same internals and features as the standard enduro version but uses titanium wings with a dual-chamfered edge.

These two pedals may look similar, but the Mallet 11 is ~34 g lighter.

Another feature intended to reduce the pedal overall footprint and reduce strikes is the 52mm q-factor. Unlike the Mallet E-LS and Mallet DH, this version uses a narrower q-factor (shared by the base Mallet E) to improve maneuverability.

These changes make the E 11 the lightest Mallet ever offered. A set weighs 385g, a reduction of 34g over the stock version. That weight reduction comes at a cost. While the normal Mallet E retails for $165, the new E 11 will set you back $350. For comparison, a set of $120 XT trail pedals weighs 408g. If it helps, the Mallet E 11 does come in a sexy black and gold finish.

    At over $5/gram that’s over even this weight weenie’s budget. If I see them half-off maybe I’d pick some up. Would be nice to have seen them use magnesium for the body to really drop some weight like many quality flat pedals do. 34 grams isn’t that much savings, especially for an extra $185.

    I’ve actually been thinking about picking up some of the regular Mallet E pedals instead of ripping Moab enduro trails on my Eggbeater 11s. They’ve held up fine with no issues for over 3 years now, but I don’t want to push my luck. That type of riding would really be more appropriate for the thicker axled models, like the Mallet.
