Speedplay Brass Knuckles Pedals
Speedplay’s newest pedal is strong, light, and low-profile. The Brass Knuckles is a flat pedal at its most minimal at 13.5 mm wide, just a hair bigger than the 12 mm spindle. The wide spindle gives this pedal its strength, and the brass knuckle design makes for a lightweight (and eye-catching) platform. Spindles on the Brass Knuckles are built with two cartridge bearings and one needle bearing, and are serviceable via a grease injection port. Chromoly and titanium options will be available January 1, for $180 and $400 respectively.
Speedplay will also releasing the Pavé pedal to the public in 2014. Long a standard for pros in classic races like the Paris Roubaix, the Pavé features a cutaway design that allows for easier clipping in when in muddy situations.
