Our review

A much-loved flat pedal with lots of reasons for its popularity
Skip to view product specifications

DMR’s V12s are strong, reliable flat pedals designed specifically for the special (wet, wet and wet) conditions found in DMR’s native Britain.


The V12 has 10 Allen-headed pins per side and a solid alloy body with lots of clear space for mud to fall through. The body itself is the flattest we’ve tested – you’ll either like this or it’ll feel odd to you.

The full sealed bearings are very low-friction and the smoothest around. We know they’ll take a pounding before requiring care, too. And when they do, it’s a relatively quick and easy job, thanks to a 6mm Allen-headed end cap.

They’re not as wide as the Eastons, as thin as the Atomlabs or as light as the Syncros, but they work well.


UK component gurus Upgrade are responsible for DMR. They do a budget V8 version of this pedal too and while the technical data might not set the world alight, the V8s and V12s are among the most popular flat pedals in the UK.
