Tioga Surefoot MX Comp pedals - in brief review$38.23

Budget flat pedals for mountain biking

BikeRadar score2.5/5

The Surefoot MX pedals are Tioga’s budget flatties. The pins arrive separate to the pedals, along with a spanner to wind them in, and are conically shaped with 5mm spanner flats on the base. They’re resistant to bending and won’t tear out easily – our pins remained intact throughout testing. 

Seven pins on each side provide a good amount of grip with a flexible soled shoe. Stiffer soled shoes tended to sit on the platform bulge around the axle area and not grip quite so well. 

Although the pedals still spin smoothly, the bearings have developed a small amount of play. At this price, it’s no surprise a simple ball bearing arrangement is used, but we’d rather pay a little more for sealed cartridge bearings.
