Ritchey Design is releasing its latest road and mountain bike pedals at the end of the summer and you don’t have to wait ’til then to give your audience a sneak peak at the WCS Echelon road pedal and the Pro Paradigm mountain pedal.
The Pro Paradigm Mountain Pedal, MSRP $149.95, replaces the previous Pro V4 Mountain Pedal and has an improved bearing/axle system allowing for adjustability and service. Sporting a new anodized red body, the 255-gram pedal has a low-profile body-to-axle design for efficient pedaling. The dual-sided design has superior mud clearance and a stainless steel retention claw for easy entry and exit over the life of the pedal. More information about the Ritchey Design’s mountain pedals is available at www.ritcheylogic.com
The WCS Echelon Pedal, MSRP $189.95, has a body made of 6061 alloy and a cromoly spindle with (adjustable) retention claw made of carbon-resin composite. Weighing-in at 233 grams, the WCS Echelon has great strength and durability for its compact size. The distance between the axle and body platform is extremely low which creates a highly efficient pedaling arc, especially in the top of the pedal stroke – almost eliminating the traditional “dead zone.” The pedal’s light-weight cleat provides a wide platform for greater support and foot comfort.
