Outland's ﬂat pedals are not the lightest, thinnest or the grippiest we've tested but they are some of the smoothest- turning ﬂat pedals we’ve tried. Well worth a look if great bearings matter more to you than weight.
Nice thick rubber collars protect the smooth bearings and keep them that way for at least as long as any other ﬂat pedal can.
The quality of their spinning action is further enhanced by the addition of a pair of grease ports on each pedal. Simply remove the screw-in pin covering the port hole, pump in fresh grease and watch the old stuff purge through the rubber axle seal.
If you want a ﬂat pedal that can deal with your commute equally as well as a weekend riding trip in the mountains, then the low-cost Outland alternative might just be the answer you’ve been looking for.
