Pro performance without emptying the wallet.

Based on the same confidence-inspiring platform as OneUp Components' Aluminum Pedal, the OneUp Composite Pedal brings you similar performance with ideal grip, size, and weight, but at less than half the price. DU and cartridge bearing technology delivers easy serviceability, smooth rotation, and lasting durability, while ten removable steel pins packed on each side of the platform ensure maximum grip. Its wider platform design makes for an easy footplant and increases stability, while the slightly contoured shape provides a natural and truly connected feeling underfoot.

  • Grippy, durable, and light pedal that keeps the bank intact
  • Nylon composite holds up against abuse on the ride
  • Contoured, wide shape increases stability and connection
  • Sealed cartridge bearings run smoothly and are easy to service
  • Removable pins on each side enhance overall grip

Great For The Price

    Can't say that these are anything that will blow your mind, but they'll get the job done and keep them getting done for a while. Very light, great grip and shape, and a fantastic price for what you're getting.

    Good, nothing that stands out

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    I have had Chesters and the cheapo Imriders from Amzn and while these are very nice pedals, I don't see that they are really any better than the Imriders for half the price. I kind of like how the Chesters have a leading edge to them, but these seem to work about as well even without. The reason I wanted to try these is in one online review they recommended them for larger feet, which I have. They are indeed larger than Chesters, but the grip feels the same. Good pedals, same price as Chesters, its just Ford vs Chevy at this point, its all good but neither really pulls ahead in my book.

    For the price these are great

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    For the price these pedals are fantastic. They grip like to other and weigh very little. You can spend a lot more on nicer looking fancy pedals but for under $50 you can't beat the grip that these offer. The look is kind of take it or leave it and more expensive pedals do look nicer but all in all a great value. Have not tried the raceface chesters but I reckon those are a viable alternative as well.

    Do not buy imo

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    These pedals offer great grip and are pretty light. I absolutely 100% would recommend against buying these for one reason. Durability is total trash. Mine broke after two pedal strikes with about 2 months of mild use. The pedal strike that broke them was at low speed. I was very surprised to find out this is not something that would be covered under warranty after they state "Nylon composite that holds up to against abuse"... Super disappointed Backcountry or 1UP did not cover this.. You make a product or stock it you should standby it period. Especially if you're going to claim it holds up to abuse.

    demo Peds

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    I have used these on all our demo bikes in the bike shop and have yet to have any problems with a single pair. They are super grippy and you are able to get them off with an allen or a ped wrench.

    Love the shape and grip of these guys. Unfortunately they cracked after a couple months use. If you'€™re looking for a budget pedal stick with the RaceFace Chester. They'€™re more durable and take pedal strike abuse much better!


    good pedals

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    I wanted a nice lightweight plastic pedal for commuting. These fit the bill nicely.

    My commute is 30 miles round trip with about 7 miles on dirt roads. I wanted a flat pedal because I didn't want to be locked into wearing cycling shoes. I also wanted a plastic pedal since I often will catch a ride home with a friend (no bike rack) and I can slide the bike into the back of his pick up on the pedal. If I had a metal pedal, it would scratch his bed. Lastly, because so much of my commute is on dirt roads, I wanted something with cleats for grip. These have very nice grip on rubber soled shoes.

    Price is good and performance is good. What more can you ask for?

    Great Price for a High Performer

      Pinkbike recently gave the OneUp Composite high marks, saying:

      "If you are looking for a crazy-affordable flat pedal that's lightweight, offers outstanding traction and a relatively low profile, you can't beat these pedals. "

      Take A Beating for a great price

      • Familiarity: I've used it several times

      Can take a beating for a great price. The built-in grip ensures your feet stay firmly planted on the pedals throughout the ride. Large surface area tends to strike rocks along the side of the path, but can barely tell on the pedals themselves. Very happy with the purchase.

      Don't bother spending more.

      • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

      I honestly see no need to spend any more than this on a pedal. The One Up composites are THAT good. Removable/replaceable pins, serviceable, plenty wide platform and a composite material that shrugs off hits much better than any alloy pedal I've used at 2-3 times the price.

      Strong, burly, wide and grippy!

      • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

      These are SUPER aggressive with the pins from factory. I was worried about getting gnarly on this new bike, but you stick like glue on these pedals. They have had a couple powerful rock-bashes and have held up perfectly too. Photo is of the pedal after a really crazy impact and it looks perfect. I'm sure an aluminum one would have bent.

      Great pedals

      • Familiarity: I've used it several times

      Switched to these from clipless after previously running Shimano MX80 Saint platforms. I honestly considered spending more because I wasn't really sold on the idea of a composite pedal but I'm glad I didn't. These are great, they feel like much higher quality than I expected and are super grippy with five ten shoes and as a bonus they keep looking good after some rock strikes. I'll be buying another set for my other bike.

      Great intro platforms

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

      Bought these for my very first time out on a mountain bike... on a demo bike on the Wasatch Crest Trail. Out of the box, the left pedal had a warped thread (fluke manufacturing defect?) that I had to use a thread file to get it to thread into the crank. Aside from that, these were great. They felt solid and light enough, nice wide platform, and the studs kept my feet firmly in place. I'm sure there are plenty of higher-quality, lighter, etc options out there but if you're looking for an intro or budget pedal, I think these are a pretty solid choice.

      Too L8 for Clips, I'm Switching to Flats

      • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

      I made the switch from SPD M540 pedals to these recently. My first impression was the noticeably wide platform for a secure footing. The confidence they add in terms of not being clipped in was surprisingly large for me. I've been riding for probably 4 years with SPD and while they helped keep my feet on the pedals thru the chudder, roots, rock gardens, etc, they limited my particularly unflexible body to move around on the bike. Unclipping was not an issue for me but is obviously a bonus when it comes to flats. These flats really helped my game in terms of body positioning, I've been able to micro adjust my foot/body positioning depending on the corner, even with the studs locking your feet in. They are also comparable in weight at 350ish grams, which is great. I've bashed them on rocks and nailed trees with these things and they are durable as heck. Another bonus for us low bottom bracket people is that the profile is actually more slender than my SPD M540s were. So rock bashing, while infrequent, is even less frequent! Highly recommend these in combo with 5-10 Freeriders, a cost effective riding shoe that work great with these pedals.

      Update 6/15/18: I’m now on my second season on these flats and they’re still incredible. No squeaks, cracks, or anything. I’ve ground studs down halfway or more hitting rocks and took some pretty decent gouges out of the plastic and they keep kicking. I still highly recommend them; they were (and are) a great cost effective way to try flats.

      Awesome budget flat pedal

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

      Reasonably low profile, replaceable studs that screw out from the back (thank god, no more fiddling with 2mm allen grub screws). Being a composite body, these will look newer for longer even after smashing them off of big rocks and roots.

      Grippy, wide and durable

      • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

      I've used a slew of other flat pedals, so it takes quite a bit to impress me. Simply put, for the money, there is no better pedal than OneUp's composite pedal. Super wide profile, uber grippy and despite smashing them into rocks, they've held up flawlessly. Previous to these I was using the Race Face Chester pedal which I loved, but the OneUp pedals are my new favorites.
