Twenty6 Products Prerunner Pedal - Cromoly $0.00
Like its Ti spindled sibling, the Twenty6 Products Prerunner Cromo Pedal features improbable complex curves carved from billet aluminum, 6061 T-6 to be exact. The bold new shape offers stability and traction that previous designs didn't have. This pedal is exactly the same as the Ti version, but it uses a 4140 chromoly spindle instead. What you get is a super light pedal built for a bruising.
Twenty6 Products has a reputation for their finish quality and no-fear attitude when it comes to offering plenty of color options. It's an inventory nightmare, but you get the most options for true customization of your steed. The Prerunner Cromo pedal is the most shapely that they've ever produced. Compared to the older designs, its complex curves are downright sexy. It's also the thinnest and lightest. This weight savings comes as a result of their quest to define and remove all of the material that was not necessary to provide either attractive surface for your feet or strength for aggressive riding. The end result is a 303g pedal and a big 'ol pile of machined aluminum shavings on the shop floor at the end of the day. In fact the Cromo version of the Prerunner is 47 grams lighter than their old Rallye Ti.
The Prerunner Cromo pedal is surprisingly thin. They will place your foot about as close to the pedal spindle as physically possible -- the closer the better, for finer balance. This inherent stability affords a greater measure of confidence for sketchy descents and landings. The new internals allow for the pancake thin shape. The new chromoly spindle runs on all-new self-lubricating turcite bushings. These new bushings are particularly interesting because they are of an angular contact design. The spindle preload can be easily adjusted for this reason. Twenty6 uses quad o-rings to seal contaminates from the bushings.
The Prerunner Cromo pedal uses new machined aluminum traction pins where the older designs relied on small hex bolts for this unsung job. The new pins are black anodized aluminum and each pedal comes with the 18 pins already installed. For those folks that like to coordinate the colors on their bikes, the pins come in 8 anodized colors for a totally customized look. Custom pin kits will be sold separately. They thread into the pedal and should they get tagged on a rock or otherwise get destroyed, the pins can be removed easily from the backside and replaced. The Twenty6 Products Prerunner Cromo Pedal is available in 4 colors -- powdercoated Flourescent Green, Flourescent Orange, White, and anodized Urban Camo. 303g

These are some of the best pedals I have used and I have been through many sets. I run them on my slopestyle bike and love them. I will recommend these to anyone who needs or wants platforms, but with a warning wear shins. Third week I had these I missed the right pedal came down hard and had to get 17 sutures in my shin, so they will tear you up if you don't respect the traction pins. It is awkward if you need to readjust your feet sometime too, because of the pins.
Super strong and a work of art love these pedals
love them love them love them love them
Love these pedals. They keep my feet right where they need to be through the technical stuff and for the relatively small amount of air I like to get - in spite of the fact that one of my feet is a prosthetic with no ankle flexion. So imagine how good these pedals must be you have two real feet. Never thought flats would be an option till I found these - they are awesome. Paired with a pair of Five Ten Karver shoes. And I look at it this way, the threat of pin loss could make me pay attention and try to ride with a little more finesse. Haven't found that they shed or disappear for no reason...only when I've bashed them into something I prolly shoulda missed.
Roughly, what are the dimensions of these...
Roughly, what are the dimensions of these pedals? I'm currently on Specialized Lo Pro Mag 2's but would like a pedal with a larger platform. Thanks!
Platform area is 100mm fore/aft and 110mm side/side.
This is awesome
Looks crazy good and sticks like whoa. Excellent platforms.
what is the thickness of the camo?

Light, Grippy Shin-Shredders
Started with Crank Bros 50/50XLs, tried some other options and ended up here.
Agree with the reviews above: incredible grip, but deviously attracted to bloodying your shins. Get shin guards, or just live with the damage.
These things SHED pins. About 10 hrs of riding on them and I'm down 7 pins, screwed new ones in TIGHT, rode once and I'm missing 4 pins after the first replacement.
Worth the upkeep though. Snag a pair and don't look back.
Rad pedal. They are light, thin and look sick! I have the neon green ones from last season. The break away pins are a pretty nice feature. I hit my pedals on rocks all the time and was always bending pins and would have to struggle to get them off. These make replacement easy. I bought replacement pins and there are a bunch in there and I keep them in my pack. On the downside some of the pin insertion points leave a little to be desired, i broke a few of them and now have lost pin placement. HOWEVER, the 2011 pedals have a solution for that. So if you have the cash I would highly suggest these.
Stupid light platforms that are super grippy...especially when paired with a pair of Impacts. Works of art. Only issue is the traction pins. 5 hrs of riding and I'm missing about 5 pins. The AL are light but seem to get blown in half by the breeze. Can't keep spending $40 for pins every month so I'll likely be looking for an alternative pin soon.
these pedals with some FiveTen shoes are all you'll ever need for freeride d/h. sticks like glue
I switched from Crank Brothers with the cherry picker baskets and platform to these. Totally awesome change!
I've saved myself from a couple of crashes by being able to jam a foot out. Yet the pedals and my 5-10 shoes are just as slip proof. Light and strong too. I've banged them into plenty of rocks without any chips or dings.
Now I find myself attempting moves that I wouldn't have before, when clipped in, since I can push it up to the last possible instant.
I love them!
The good news or the bad news first?
Well... besides being the lightest platforms that I could find, the good news is that your feet don't move... and the bad news is that your feet don't move. Readjustment on the fly takes some doing. Oh, shin guards are a must and watch the calf. The pins will need replacing after some rock munching but a trip to the hardware store and some blue locktite will make these things only good news.
Break Away Pins
Whether by design or not, the break away pins offer superior traction until they break away....which they do very easily. The positive to them breaking away is that the pin threads in the pedal stay good for the next set of $40 pins. I think that is sweet....I think?
I never understood the fuss about $$$ platforms until I rode these. I've ridden lots of pedals (MG-1's, Canfield Crampons, Gravity Lights, Kona Wah Wah, etc) and these are the gripiest platform I've ever ridden, plus they're super thin, super light, and super bling. If you have the means, I highly recommend picking them up ;)
