Plant your feet and go.

Having a place to put your feet is a pretty non-negotiable part of cycling, but, you don't want to spend your post-ride refreshment budget (and part of next month's rent) on flashy pedals, either. Race Face's Chester Pedals don't have the shiny aluminum construction of some of their pricier counterparts, but they also won't empty your wallet, and Race Face carefully constructs their nylon composite body to make it just as grippy and responsive as aluminum versions.

Using eight replaceable steel hex traction pins on each side of the pedals, Race Face gives the rubber soles of your shoes a place to hang on when you're blasting through destructive territory. It also fully seals the bearing and bushing system while a durable Cro-Mo steel axle keeps the pedal working smoothly for as long as possible. If it eventually does need some work, Race Face makes the system completely serviceable too, so you won't be forced to replace a perfectly good pedal because of a bushing or bearing problem.

Race Face Chester Pedal

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

This is a great pedal for mtn bikers who don't want to use clip ins. Super durable, fantastic grip on the sole of your shoe, and more than rugged enough for hitting rocks while in mid cadence. They offer a wide foot bed for various foot positions to be able to crank however you want; they are super light and don't have any extra bulk. For the price, this is a very difficult pedal to beat.

great for a leap of faith

    Ordered these because I wanted to increase confidence from clips to flats but didn't want to break the bank on something I might not use in the future. These pedals can't be beat. I have put them through he wringer this summer and besides the usual scuffs any pedal would get, they are going strong . No lateral play or missing / broken pins. I'm not crazy about spending big $ on a component that is normally beat to hell and couldn't be happier. I ride in rocky New England and pedal strikes are common place.

    Gets the job done

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    I can not clip in while mountain biking yet so I wanted pedals that still gave me good grip and felt secure. I use these with mountain bike specific shoes and the grip is fairly good. They're light weight, and seem solid.

    Solid Pedals

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    Great basic pedals with a lot of grip and little weight. The price is awesome too! I've been beating on these a bit and they've withstood everything really well.

    Grippy Goodness

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    I finally got turned on to platforms, and picked these up- couldn't have asked for anything more! They are nice and wide, and super grippy paired with my Five Tens. They are pretty beefy too- definitely not the lightest chunks, but they won't break prematurely. Just make sure you don't take one to the shin!

    All in all, great pedal for the price point. And the fun colors are bomb too.

    Grippy Goodness

    Do exactly what they're supposed to

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    Pedals aren't the most glamorous accessory, but these work exactly as they're supposed to. The pins add some extra grip, and the platform is nice and wide, which was key for me. All of the fun colors are a nice bonus too, and the price makes it easy to justify grabbing another color to mix things up next season.

    Light & Colorful

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    These pedals are an awesome pic at a great price point. The pins are great for grip (especially when paired with a pair of Five Tens)

    Gotta love the colors too - went with orange and purple for my dirt jumper and commuter.

    Rad pedals

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    The thing that makes these pedals rock so much is the price. You can get better grip with a larger platform or more pines, but I have never felt at a lack of grip with them and my Five Tens, and you can bash them into rocks in Moab all day and not feel bad.

    So grippy

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    Love these pedals! Can't beat the price either! I've definitely put them through the wringer they are super durable in case you accidentally hit a rock mobbing down these peadals won't break.

    You can't beat them for the price

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    So it was time to upgrade my mountain bike to full suspension. I wanted some decent pedals but not something that would break the bank since I'm not an expert. Read about these on a women's mountain biking blog plus they come in purple, score! I decided to try them out. For the price, why not. Got them and opening the box I was actually surprised by the quality. They were better quality than I expected and the color made me excited. The first ride I wore actual biking shoes and they were definitely sticky. Loved them and perfect for what I need. Took them on another ride, forgetting I had some crappy running shoes on but they stuck pretty good. Love these especially for the money. They aren't as amazingly sticky as my husband's expensive pedals but for the price and the level I am, they are perfect. I've hit them on a few rocks and no damage at all. I'd highly recommend these for the price.

    Pretty Dang Awesome!

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    I got these for my sons bike. He is riding an older Specialized that my wife used to ride. He was feeling kinda bummed that his dad and Uncle had "cooler" bikes with "cooler" pedals and his feet were slipping off the 90's era pedals that came stock on the bike. Now he has plenty of grip and is having a blast! Super light, durable and tons of traction pins. Only thing I would say I don't love about them is they don't have any concave to them. But still awesome and a decent price too.

    Pretty Dang Awesome!

    Sweet Style, Great Functionality

    • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

    I recently purchased a pair of Race Face Chester Pedals and I am extremely pleased with them. I decided to take a break from clipless pedals and move to flats for my mountain bike and came across these pedals. They have great grip even when you have less than ideal footwear on . The come in a wide range of colors which allows you to add a bit of personal flare to your ride.
    I would definitely recommend these pedals, and they are at a great price point too!

    Good flats

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    I've been riding clipless this season but decided to grab some flats to throw on every once in a while to make sure I wasn't picking up too many bad habits. I didn't want to spend a boatlad and these fit the bill perfectly.

    Paired with some trusty 5.10s they're plenty grippy. Not as good as the best flats I've ever ridden, but they're also about a third of the price. The pin pattern isn't perfect - they're a bit spread out. Not much of an issue for me with a men's size 9, but riders with small feet may find that not all the pins grab the soles of their shoes.

    These are a great buy for any level of biker. They'd be a nice upgrade for the stock pedals that come on many low-end hardtails, but they're a quality component that isn't out of place on a brand new high end trail bike either. Even though they're an inexpensive component, they're fully rebuildable and seem quite durable. And they come in a full rainbow of colors to match whatever color scheme you're running!

    So Plastic, But Not Fake

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    I am a believer in plastic pedals. Sure they don't have that Gucci look that comes with a set of CNC'd alloy pedals, but they also don't come with the price tag. These guys take hits and shrug them off like a champion. I run them on my downhill bike and have about half a season of bouncing off of stuff on them, enough time to know that I will buy another pair if they ever call it quits.
    Also, for the 5.10 Stealth rubber riders out there, no, they are not TOO sticky like some pedals.

    Any other ?'s Catch me on the emails

    Great pedal !!

      This pedal is great! By far the best for the price point! Although an abs plastic, super durable, and a plus is that is extremely lightweight. Can't complain for some replacement pedals, definitely worth it!
