RACE FACE CHESTER PLATFORM PEDALS – Save 20%
Alloy pedals are great for their resilience and visual appeal, but it’s no secret that most of the time there’s nothing lightweight about them. On the contrary, composite pedals may be light, but they also wear out easier and aren’t as keen on footing. Race Face’s Chester Composite Pedals offer the best of both realms, using its tough and burly nylon composite body to provide a large platform with the same superior grip you’d find on alloy pedals via the bottom loading 8 hex traction pins. Thin and lightweight is the name of the game with Chester, featuring a cro-mo axle that is fully sealed and a 100% serviceable bearing and bushing system. This pedal offers great performance for a wide range of riders at a price that leaves plenty of cash in pocket to spring for that round of bevies at your local watering hole after hammering out a day of hot laps with the crew.

FIX IT STICKS ORIGINAL MULTI-TOOL – Save 10%

To use, grab the stick with the bit you need and insert the opposite end of the stick into center HEX hole of the other stick. This effectively creates a mini T-handle wrench, offering far better leverage and torquing capabilities than a traditional multi-tool. With Fix It Sticks, you can carry shop-quality wrenches with you everywhere you go, never risking under-torquing or stripping out hardware with a flimsy multi-tool. The included upcycled-tire carrying case provides neat storage of your Fix It Sticks, taking up no more room than a traditional multi-tool. The Fix It Sticks Originals feature an orange anodized aluminum body with permanently installed steel bits, weighing in at 55g and offering a max torque of 15 newton meter.
