Bontrager Line Pro
As part of their new Line of trail/enduro components, Bontrager is releasing a new flat pedal. Developed with input from their C3 slopestyle team, the 6061 alloy pedals spin on dual sealed cartridge bearings. The platform has a concave shape to help retain the foot, as well as adjustable traction pins. The pedals are available in black, as we as a limited edition Orange. Weight is 420g. Retail is $99.
VP Harrier Axle Update
The Harrier platform pedal has remained unchanged for a number of years, but VP has recently made some changes to their axle and bearing system to improve long term durability. The new setup is called the Axial Force Control System and essentially swaps the external Igus bushing for an internal bushing paired with a thrust bearing.
