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.

Good weight, sticky pedal--winner

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

I needed a flat pedal that wouldn't break the bank or be a boat anchor. Enter the Chester. I've got Candy pedals with the composite body and they've taken a beating so I thought I'd give this offering from RaceFace a go. So far, so good. The studded pedals provide a big target for slapping down boots and moving on my snowbike and I used the fattie for a trail in Moab this weekend and although the wide platform whacked stones/rocks and off camber trails that you find there, the pedals themselves seem none the worse for wear other than some cosmetic dings. You can spend more for pedals...I don't know that you get more value.

Sticky Goodness

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

Put them on my new Niner Jet 9. They sticky goodness and now I feel like I can pedal harder and I'm not worried about slipping off. Ride in AZ desert. Just did a road ride on old bike wow what a difference. Colors are awesome(Be Unique), price is well worth it and they are tough!

Awesome

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

Have these as a backup pedal and they are just what I need. I had a pedal problem on my last weekend trip. After I switched to these cheaper Chesters I had a great time without limiting the trip

Cool pedals. Your feet will never move on these pedals. Lightweight, good quality. Not much else to say to be honest. If you're looking for a pair of quality pedals and don't want to spend over 100 USD on a fancy pair of Atlas something but still want the quality these are the ones to get

Match your bike

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

These are great platform pedals for the MTB. Nice big platform and generous traction pins ensure that your foot isn't going to slide off these bad boys. The Chester uses a nylon composite instead of aluminum which is what makes them cheaper than some of the other pedals out there on the market. Best thing about these is that they come in a bunch of different colors. No problem matching these up to your bike. Look good, feel good, ride good.

Great pedals for the price

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

These are great pedals for the price. Keeps your foot planted when and where you need it to. Had a couple of rock strikes and they come out shining! Only gripe is they seem a tad too small for my size 10.5.

Strange name - good pedal

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

I bought these pedals for winter fat bike riding. I usually ride clips but when the snow fly's I prefer not to be clipped in. Also I ride with mountaineering boots when it gets really cold so these pedals will work great.

Strange name - good pedal

For the price they are grand.

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

Great grip and size for the price. Overall they are a bit heavy but i wasnt ready to drop some coin on pedals quite yet. Overall im stoked on them!

Awesome! Especially for the price!

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

These pedals are great! They have a nice big platform with adjustable screws for amazing grip. It may not be aluminum but its half the price of the high end pedals and probably performs just as well. My feet used to feel really slick on the stock pedals on my bike and having all of this grip really adds some confidence without clipping in.

Awesome! Especially for the price!

SOLID

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

These pedals are made with an extremely hard nylon composite. They provide a wide platform, extreme grip and durable. Colors are rad and price is even better. Best bang for your buck when it comes to platform pedals

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.
