Nukeproof Horizon Pro flat pedals review
Developed by the CRC/Nukeproof team – including former DH world champ Sam Hill – the Horizon Pro pedals offer up 10 pins per side, a slightly concave, 100mm wide platform and a reasonable weight of 444g the pair (with chromoly axle).
You can adjust the height of the six pins at the front and rear (the other four are grub screws), which thread in from the reverse side of the platform, by removing/adding the washers provided. This gives you roughly 1mm of additional pin length to play with – great for tailoring grip, not so good for your shins.
The platform is roomy enough to accommodate clumpy Five Ten soles and makes for a nice big target to get your foot back onto after a quick dab. It’s approximately 12mm deep so there’s plenty of ground clearance, and when we have snagged the pedals on rocks they’ve shrugged off all but superficial damage with ease.
When it comes to grip, the 10 pins coupled with the foot-cupping shape make for a glue-like connection between pedal and shoe. Add to that the decent price and we think Nukeproof are onto a winner. You can get pricier but lighter Ti axle versions too.
