Crank Brothers 5050 3 Pedals $80.00
Grip meets strength.
When Crank Brothers originally released the 5050 pedal, it became an instant hit. With the large pedal body and dual concave shape, everyone from dirt jumpers, to downhillers, to cross country riders raved about the comfort and grip. But never content to rest on its laurels, Crank Brothers has updated its classic platform, and the result is the 5050 3 pedal.
Long time 5050 fans will immediately notice the new two piece body. The outer-shoulder is built from aluminum alloy in order to enhance the pedal's resistance to impact. The inner-portion of the body is built from lightweight and durable polycarbonate. The spindle uses a similar profile to Crank Brother's clipless pedals, only it employs a new chromoly steel alloy that's claimed to be 50% stronger than previous versions. The 3, however, sits atop the heap of Crank Brothers pedals, so it runs on a blend of high-load needle bearings and cartridge bearings, unlike the bushing-based 5050 2. The pins are height adjustable, so you're able to fine tune your grip. And at around 432 grams per set, they're not only durable, but lightweight in the realm of platform pedals.
The Crank Brothers 5050 3 Pedals are available in one size and in the color Red/black.
