Designed for trail mountain biking, the new PNW Loam Pedal claims to have “enough grip to hang on through sketchy terrain while also allowing flexibility for quick foot readjustments.” With a 105mm wide x 115mm long platform—identical to my current personal favorites by OneUp—the Loam pedals appear to have a fairly low profile, a slightly concave shape, and a subtle taper, which should over a nice bit of clearance. And at 445 grams per pair, they’re not too heavy, either.
Each Loam Pedal features two sealed cartridge bearings, one roller bearing, and 22 removable steel pins (11 per side). With maintenance in mind, the pedal can be easily disassembled with a single hex wrench and rebuilt or serviced. Pins can be removed and replaced by threading them out from the underside of the pedal body.
The Loam Pedal comes in Black Out, Nickleback, or Fruit Snacks, ships in compostable and biodegradable packaging, and is covered by a lifetime warranty for $99 USD. Learn more over at PNWcomponents.com.
