Preview: Canfield Brothers Crampon Magnesium Pedal

A new pedal has emerged, so new in fact, that its barely hit the market yet (good luck getting a pair in EU). Its the Canfield Brothers Crampon Magnesium Pedal, building on the successful fundamental of the original Crampon pedal.

106mm x 106mm, chromo axle, DU bushings, laser etched logos.

Claimed 282 grams, actual weight is 285g, pretty close imo.

Thin 6-10mm magnesium body. Its just crazy thin.

Replaceable dual sided pins. Long, but a tiny bit more fat than the ones on my Podiums, and my experience tell me that thin pins are key to grip on FiveTen shoes .

 Crampon Magnesium VS Point One Racing Podiums. Podiums are noticeably bigger, they feel bigger as well. My Twenty6 Predator are way bigger than both tho'.

So the big question is; will this ultra thin mag pedal survive rock-impacts? Well time will tell, I have been on mag pedals before, and they have a tendency to partially break away on the body itself after big hits. I wonder how these will fare. I already had the chance to test them out in a bikepark, trouble free, but more testing is needed. Expect a review soon, right here at All Mountain Next.

  1. Why another pair of pedals?

  2. I got myself a DH bike, and wanted something different than "just" another set of Predators.
