    Is this the Crampon 2 pedal?

    ....just under the "da bomb" name?

    weight and spec is similar, from what I have read, not trying to start trouble, just asking:

    No, it looks like a HT AE01 modified by HT for the company selling the pedal.

    That one is one of the proto's from 2011.
    Production is much cooler for sure-

    Dang, I wish these were out. I'm in the market for new pedals NOW, and I'm not going to buy v1 of anything with v2 on the horizon. They'll have to go back in the queue.

    I just got a pair of twenty6 Predators, but odds are good that I'll find a way to convince myself to pick up a pair of these this summer. Fingers crossed for some cool color options.

    Interesting story for sure......Chris and Lance, probably have some of the most experience with the super flat platform pedal. The Bros. designed the old crampon and had HTI build it to their specs. This was 5 years ago...... Needless to say, HTI has learned a great deal on how to build a sick pedal, but they don't have all the bros. secrets........

    There will be some pretty unique details for sure !

    I would find this news relevant to my interests. I was just about to buy some new pedals but now I'm wondering if the new hawtness is going to be available Any Day Now and I'd be better off just waiting a bit.

    Perfect. Was looking into a new pair of pedals. Imagining that the v2s will be even better than the v1s (if that's even possible). Count me in for a set once they are available!

    Here's a pic

    I've got about 2, solid rides on my Crampons 2.0. I have the first version on another bike and these are much better. I don't notice the spindle as much. Super grippy with lot's of platform. I did, however, lose a few pins already. Easy fix though.

    Measurements are 106 x 106 x 10!

    It uses a DU bearing, similar to allot of pedals but we have a "hat" shaped DU the eliminates the need for the thrust bearing, simple and effective side loading.

    Anybody have a picture from the side? Concave? Flat? Convex?!
    Whats the story with the pins?

    My original crampons are still running strong, a bit squeaky from the spindle rubbing on my shoes sometimes. Might have to replace them BEFORE they die. That's a first for pedals on one of my bikes.

    From the original picture they look convex (the edges are thinner than the middle). They will probably have longer pins on the thinner outer edges and shorter pins towards the middle to form a concave shape to cradle the shoe (at least that is my guess). If you have to use longer pins to overcome the convex shape and you are essentially standing in the middle where the pedal is 10mm thick it probably would have been better to make the whole pedal 10mm even though it would have added a little weight because the thinner leading edge will still catch rocks with the longer pins needed to make the pedal concave.

    Maybe they will chime in and tell us about the design philosophy behind the pedal. I am interested to know if the pins will make the pedal concave?

    Well I just got mine and installed them. I set them up with edge pins only so that the resulting shape is concave. Still has plenty of grip this way. They came with a lot of pins but they're all the same length.

    What benefit do the ultimates have over the orininal ones other than weighing less? Are the ultimates more forgiving? Are they thinner? More efficient at pedaling, and/or easier to stay attached too?

    Which would be better for a rookie? Thanks Bill

    I think you'd be fine with either, and especially so as a beginner. I'd make your choice on price and color, to be honest.

    Mine came today. I'll install the pins later tonight.

    Thanks. I like the black color and the ultimates are $30 more. The $30 isn't much more money, I just want to justify spending the extra $$. Besides I am and engineer and am obsessive about figuring So, the Ultimates are lighter and I was reading 10mm at the widest spot versus 17mm.
    Thanks

    Here's a shot of mine. There are three additional pin holes per side that I'm not running yet.

    Actually, these pins will be a lot easier on my shins than my other pedals, twenty6 Predators. Not sure of their width.

    The pedal body is very slightly convex, but not as much as it looks. The pedals are beveled, presumably to help with rock strikes. The pins are tall enough to create an effective concavity, though. Assuming you don't install pins in the center holes, that is. I heard no squeaking from the nut at the end of the axle. I didn't expect to, as it sits down far enough that I didn't think it would rub my sole, but I was riding 5.10 Impacts, which do have big, clunky soles.

    First ride this AM. Grip is decent. I can get push and pull strokes on the top and bottom of the rotation as I'm used to. Grip doesn't compare to a Predator (nothing does- I've tried plenty of flats, including the two previous twenty6 pedals, and nothing is close) but it's enough to pedal efficiently and I can move my foot around on the pedal without lifting off (which you can't do with a Predator). The platform is slightly narrower than I'm used to these days, as the Predator is a pretty wide pedal. That cuts both ways - I expect fewer rock strikes with the Crampon Ultimates.

    I bought the Ultimates because as much as I love my twenty6 pedals, I won't take them to the desert again. I understand why they are designed to shed a pin rather than damage the pedal body, but since the pins are machined in Montana like the pedals, they're a bit spendy after a while. I'll probably switch to the Ultimates for any particularly rocky ride around here, too. So I wanted a low-profile pedal that will take rock strikes in stride. One of my friends has Crampons on his bike, and they've been great for him. I like the way the look, their durability, and I like Canfield Bros in general. So I figured I'd keep an eye on the refresh. I'm glad I did. These pedals look like they will avoid some strikes I'd otherwise get with my bigger platform twenty6s, and they look like they'll skip better off the rocks I do hit, without dropping pins as easily. And the box includes far more pins than you need, so I'm set for spares for a while.

    They're hot-looking. They got a few looks and comments this AM. I might have to think about a purple pair to match my Yelli Screamy sometime down the road.

    Can anybody put them in a Pic next to the original Crampons to compare size and thickness?

    I love the Canfield exuberance... makes me want to buy a frame in the future... thanks for the great service. I will make sure to serve these pedals a big dose of B.C. loam and rocks... I'm sure they will be more than up to the task.

    Yeah, this is my first Canfield experience but between talking on the phone to Sean and the email attitude I've got to say they're top-notch people. It's really cool that they're so enthusiastic to support the community and not a bunch of disenfranchised curt cynics.

    Same for me, their enthusiasm really is great to hear. Can't wait to get them and give mine a try!

    Hey thanks, that's a good idea. I thought about the pin damage but wasn't too worried about it as I can easily drill one out if needed. It didn't occur to me to thread the pin in backwards though.

    My other pedals have pins that thread that way, so I didn't have to think about it. If necessary, you could probably use pliers to back one out, too.

    For the guys that got your ultimates already, were they pretty stiff/hard to spin out of the box? Did it loosen up after 1 or 2 rides? I just got a pair in black yesterday but no chance to ride yet. The ultimates are pretty hard to spin compared to the original crampons that I also have.

    I took some pictures comparing the ultimates to the original crampons and some da bomb bare bones pedals if anyone is interested
    quick comparison

    Pedals looking good boys and girls !! Ok, the pedal pin question has been asked alot! Here is the low-down....

    Points up or down ??

    With the point down, threads up, it actually creates a little bit more surface area for your shoe to "bite" . It is really noticeable in wet or muddy conditions.

    Point UP will allow you to replace pins from the back side after a rock encounter! Both work really well but there is a subtle difference.

    Even if you do smash your pins point down, In most cases you can still remove them and install a freshie....

    Best part of these pedals is the service! 8mm allen key on the spindle and a 8mm on the nut....pull the pedal body, fill with grease, squish back to together, then out ride all your buddies !!!

    BRAPPPP ~~~

    Good to know. I think these things are going to survive the zombie apocalypse.

    A friend of mine saw my bike outside the taproom last night and commented on the new pedals. He rides a One, though, so he's got an eye for Canfield product.

    THANKYOU! Finally what I have been looking for. Now I can make a more informed decision. Ultimates it is.

    Since no one posted purple

    Love these pedals. I ride a Banshee Spitfire and these helped reduce pedal strikes with the low BB. I wanted black but they only had purple and orange in stock. I was going to strip the ano off, but they are getting quite the attention at the local trails.

    Are they flat, or convex?

    The pins are flat, the body is convex. The convex shape is key to these pedals. It reduces the chance of hanging up the front edge on a hit. Look at every other pedal and they have a square surface to hang up on. The shape allows these to slide over the object with less chance of pitching you over the bars. When you stand on these, they feel flat. Having your foot wrap over the front and back helps with the pedaling, push / pull to round out the pedaling circle. (think clips) You have better grip on the top and bottom of the stroke. Concave might be good for thick pedals but for thin pedals, convex has big benefits.

    Interesting. I'll have to try them out to see what I think. I've only tired flat and concave, never convex. I prefer the concave. I'm currently running podium's which are concave and still very thin.

    Got my pedals in the mail today... they look great. One small issue that I had to rectify was the right pedal was apparently put together with no grease from the factory. It spun smoothly , but with no hydraulic resistance as you would expect. Had to pull them apart and check and sure enough no grease. Mine must have been assembled after Miller time at the HT factory. Luckily, these are easy to work on.

    I have a set of the HT-AE01 pedals which are very similar but the Ultimates have better chamfering to deflect rock strikes and a better pin management system. I went with the point up installation for the pins for easier pin replacement as I can't see having any grip issues especially with 5-10 stealth rubber. I thought the platform was going to be a bit larger, but its identical to the AE01s. Looking forward to trying them out.

    So I had the chance to put these pedals through the ultimate torture test today... my ride started in the high alpine in 2 feet of snow, and then gradually deteriorated into mud and rock slabs on the descent. The Ultimates took a couple of good hits without complaint and the grip was very good even with the snow and mud buildup.... I was impressed. I guess if you don't notice your pedals they are doing what they should.

    I expected to ride mine for a week or so to get the feel and then go back to my Predators, since I bought the Crampons with desert trips in mind. They're still on my bike.

    My one complaint is that the smaller platform width has my heels hitting my chainstays more often (size 12 Impacts), but that's pretty minor.

    Had my first ride on these last night. They were exactly what I wanted to replace my Crampon V1s. Same grip I have come to love and no noise from the axle. It was awesome how well they performed. Good job Canfield!

    Also There are so many pin options I set each pedal side with a different configuration. On the V1s I could tell where the pins were, but with these I don't notice at all. One side I barely had any in and another I had them all in. Sure there was a difference but not enough to slip the pedal. Might need a couple more rides to get my preferences sorted, but it looks like having less pins is still super grippy.

    I hit a rock/root hard enough to stop me dead on my ride today... the pedal was unscathed except for some cosmetic damage.
