Move the world.

If you're strong enough, you can lock your bike into a stand, put all your power into the RaceFace Atlas Pedals, and actually slow down the Earth's rotation. It'll have all sorts of unfortunate consequences, probably, but it'd impress the hell out of a lot of people. If you're more interested in actually riding, you can slap the lightweight and burly Atlas onto your trail, XC, enduro, or DH rig and hammer down the trail with the security of 20 hex-headed pins, a rugged aluminum body, and bombproof chromoly steel axle.

The pins at the front of the pedals are angled backwards to increase grip, and the super-thin platforms help keep weight to a light 355 grams. The bearings are fully sealed to keep grit out and grease in, and the Atlases are available in all sorts of colors, because everybody knows that looking good is the first step towards riding well.

Take it from someone on their second set

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I will start by saying these pedals replaced my Shimano Saints, it is a superior pedal in all aspects. They are grippy, more real estate to place your foot and are incredibly thin! But here comes the "however" part of the review, the bearings in these pedals *maybe* lasted me 8 months. To get more life from them I had to disassemble and re-grease them by hand just to extend the life of the pedal. And you can only sort-of service the inboard bearing. Don't get me wrong, the pedal is awesome, the bearings, not so much. This is a known issue and new bearing sets will put you back another $40 +/-. Do yourself a favour and purchase the ONEUP flat pedal.

Worth it!

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

Installed it on my 2017 SC Bronson, used it for 9 months, so far so good, lighter, thinner and spin smoothly!

Good shape, but a safety concern

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

OK, I love these pedals for their shape, thinness, grip etc. The problem, and it's not a small one, is with reliability. Unfortunately, this is a design flaw.

Here's the flaw: These pedals have one large inboard bearing and 3 very small outboard ones. The problem is that the pedal body is attached to the spindle by a bolt that traps the inner race of the 3 small outer bearings. WHAT THIS MEANS is that when those small bearings fail, the pedal actually FALLS OFF THE BIKE.

I don't mind needing to replace bearings from time to time when they get gritty, but this failure mode is unacceptable. I've had 2 rides cut short by this issue; I feel fortunate that I've never lost a pedal mid-jump or during a race, when it could cause a bad crash. Terrible engineering ruins what's otherwise a good pedal.

no issues

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

These are a great alum ped. I Prefer the race face Chester ped though. It costs less and seems to hold up just as well. ..

Great Peddals!

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

I bought these for a custom trail bike and love them. I got them in green and the bling is AWSOME. Although bling is nice, function is more important. These pedal function great. My foot feels planted solid and I don't feel the pins digging into my feet. They spin super smooth thus no friction or energy robbing going on at all. Finally they are super light and give a nice big platform.
I wear a low top Keen shoe and love how planted they feel (like Velcro) to these pedals.
I would recommend these pedals.

Get a Grip

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

Everything you need in a pedal; low profile, sharp pins, and lightweight.


  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

These pedals are light, sturdy, have great bearings and the pegs grab on to my 5.10's and hold on quite well. I love these pedals the only complaint I have is that they are not compatible with the sram eagle crank booties ;-( other than that I think they are worth every penny.

Clipless feel

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

The Race Face Atlas is a premium pedal. The turned in outer pins make them ultra grippy. The design is very lightweight. The premium spindle/bearings make these spin with ease, thus you will never have the problem of catching the side when trying to get your shoe back on the pedal after a foot plant. I have to admit, that once in the premium pedal market, it was the cool colors that sold me on this pedal over the alternatives. Five stars.

Grip and Rip

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I threw these pedals on my Santa Cruz Bronson and I'm stoked on them. They look great with my bike (I got the blue) and they stick to my feet with ease. I wear a pair of Five Ten Freeriders and the combo of the shoes and pedals are flawless. There is virtually no pedal slipping at all with these, and they are surprisingly light. They are certainly on the pricier side, but I strongly recommend them if you're like me and don't like clipping in.

So far so good

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

These pedals have been good for me so far. They have a thin profile, which helps reduce the chance of pedal strikes. They grip well too and pins are replaceable. Several cool colors available to match your bike. Keep an eye on the spindle and make sure it doesn't come loose or else dust and grime will get in there. Haven't had them for too long but if there are any issues I'll report back.

8 - 10 rides and both squeak

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

The right pedal started squeaking after 6 rides. Broke them down and the bearings are toast. Bothe pedals need new bearings! I can't believe that $150+ pedals are already in need of a rebuild. Not to mention the rebuild kit is $50 and out of stock everywhere. DO NOT BUY THESE!!

Same as you. Rode mine about 100 miles on single track and, all of a sudden, the most horrible grinding and creaking sound starts coming from my left pedal. Bearings are toast. I see Raceface sells a $45 bearing replacement kit. From reading online, this problem is common. I'd estimate 2 bearing kits a year. $90 annual cost of ownership if the pedals were free. No thanks.


    Great feel and grip. Lacks the concave feel of a pedal like a DMR, which I think holds your foot better, but the flatter platform feels more responsive for trail riding. So, my Vaults go on my huckin' bike and the RFs go on my trail bike.

    Pedals spin too freely.

    One pedal developed lateral play. Screw bottomed out on shaft before it could take up slack. Had to file down shaft so screw could take up the play and now they work well, but for the money I should not have had to "fix" their problem.

    Pretty cool stuff

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    Got these pedals for my new Santa Cruz Bronson. Works like a charm so far. Excellent traction, feet do not slide off the pedals at all (tried with regular hiking and fancy Five Ten shoes).
