    Anyone seen the new 45NRTH platform pedals?

    They looked pretty nice to me, but I don't know much about these things. MSRP is $99. They also have one for @$180--apparently it has no spindle, just a huge bearing just inboard the cage. Any pics about? Real knowledge?

    11 new products are supposed to show up on the site today. So I guess platform pedals is one of them...

    And the website is being updated. A chain is apparently among them too

    FULL TRACTION COMMUTER TIRES
    Commuting to work or school on black ice just got faster and easier. 140 aluminum carbide studs provide unrivaled control and durability, while the ultra-narrow profile easily slices through snow to provide extreme traction in extreme winter commuting conditions.

    I tried the Heiruspecs at a Salsa demo. They worked very well--nice profile and shape, tons of traction.

    I think I've seen a couple other with that design too. That seems to be the new trend in flats.

    Somewhat similar to the new Canfield Bros too.

    That bearing certainly is large, but I wonder how it holds up over several seasons. It seems similar to the high leverage that headset bearings suffer through.

    Then there was the original. But they required a modified crank arm.

    Then Specialized took a try.

    The 45s are pretty good looking.

    I got to ride a set of the Heiruspecs at salsa demo day, I have to say I like them more then my current VP pedals.

    The grip is good and the feel of the pedal is nice,I'm guessing my winter boots will mate well with the pedal. It will be the pedal i put on my fatbike this winter

    I wish I could try the HELVA tho it looks like they will be light and not have the current problem I have with thin flats, I can feel the spindle on my foot.

    Cheers
    Aron

    Since I was shopping for pedals for my fatbike over the past couple of days, I did indeed see those pedals 45nrth is releasing. However, I got these fyxation pedals instead: Fyxation*||* Mesa V2 Pedal

    I switched from regular platform pedals to a set of nylon pedals last winter and I noticed a difference with foot warmth (in a subjective, non-scientific sort of way). Unfortunately the nylon pedals were old and well used, and the bearing started going out in one, so figured it would be an excuse to upgrade. I decided I wanted to stick with a nylon based pedal for winter use. These seem like they are a good bang for the buck, I've tried them out in person and was impressed. I ordered from Universal Cycle.

    Not only do I think the fyxation pedals will be nicer for the winter, they're cheaper to boot.

    That Hellva pedal looks very familiar. Cant think of the company though.

    I'm surprised that they are alloy pedals. Given the flair for the really cold, it would seem more likely that they would have done a poly pedal, as opposed to, you know, a giant heatsink under your foot.

    I think they look like the new Tiogas.

    Frankly, i'm a little surprised they even came out with flat pedals. They are already 100's of extruded aluminum & pinned pedals on the market. I was hoping for more composite options, since the market lacks a lot of good options in that area. Nuke Proof and Fyxation (made by the same Chinese company) are the only good options I was able to find for composite, thin, and light weight.

    I agree with AC/BC, especially the composite comment. I've had flats ice up on me, what a pain that is.

    There have been some questions on availability of our flat pedals, so we will take a moment to answer them here.

    Helva - they will be available in mid-November, they weigh 308 grams per pair.

    Heiruspecs - available in late October, they weigh 358 grams per pair.

    Replacement pin kits in seven different colors are available for each pedal. The colors are: red, blue, green, orange, silver, black, and pewter. Also, one technical note on the Helva. It is pictured with an orange spindle nut, but will actually come with a black anodized nut.
