Atomlab Pimplite pedals review
These magnesium bodied beauties are aimed at the downhill and freeride markets. Their slimline construction keeps the weight down to just over 470g, and gives plenty of clearance when you’re bashing through ruts at speed.
The platform is huge and gives a confidence inspiring feel. The 10 (per side) Allen bolt pins do a great job of keeping your feet firmly in place, although it would be great to have a longer pin option for muddier conditions.
That said, the open structure of the pedal clears mud quickly so it doesn’t interfere with the performance too much.
The body of the pedal rotates on a 12mm 4140 chromoly spindle sat on needle bearings, enabling that shallow depth and smooth rotation.
They may be a little expensive but these are a fantastic flat pedal and the perfect size for anyone who likes to let their feet hang out.
