Prototype Point One Racing Pedal

The guys at Point One Racing showed me a new pedal they’ve been working on. It’s still a prototype at this stage but the changes they’ve done to the pedal are impressive from the looks of it.

This prototype pedal certainly has resemblance of the current Podium pedal but in a more refined way.  They’ve made a lot of subtle changes that you can see.  We shot a video of how they make the current Podium Pedal in the USA that we’ve posted in the past.  They’re not 100% sure that this will be called the Podium pedal when its all finished.

Prototype pedals - trying a few different finishes

The Point One Racing Podium Pedal has always been one of our favorite go-to flat pedals and this new prototype looks to improve upon that pedal when it comes out.

Video:

You can watch the video to learn more but some of the key highlights in this current prototype stage include

  • Lighter and thinner design
  • a closed axle
  • bearing bulge has been reduce near the crank arm
  • new traction pins with an m5 body
  • moved the traction pins from the outsides of the pedal
  • ~300g currently with a cro-moly axle
  • thinner design
  • slightly reworked pedal width
  • more chamfering on the edges
  • Release date – 2014 tentatively

The bearing that sits next to the crank arm has been revised and is now slimmer making for a much smaller rise at the crank end of the pedals.
