Dartmoor Fever pedals review

Big grip flats

BikeRadar score2.5/5

The Fevers’ grip is great. Six of the eight pins on each platform screw in from behind, so they’re easy to replace even if they get ruined. The two sealed bearings and DU bushes have kept things smooth and the pedals still feel great after some serious use.

Our main gripe with these pedals is that they sit too close to the crank arm, making the platforms seem smaller than they actually are. When we had our feet on all the pins, they rubbed on the cranks, but keeping our feet away from the cranks meant they weren’t on any of the inner pins, and felt prone to rolling off the pedal.
