Bolstering the well-established range of bike parts, PNW Components has launched the new Loam pedal. It claims to sit well within the Goldilocks Zone, promising plenty of grip combined with a durable build and easy serviceability. Here are all of the details.
The Loam pedal has been designed to offer tonnes of grip but not so much that you can't move your feet about on the pedal. That's with thanks to 22 pins per pedal.
Then, the CNC'd 6061 aluminium platform is slightly concave. This is to help your shoe settle in place but furthering the Goldilocks Zone concept, it's not so concave that it'll cause fatigue on long rides, says the brand. PNW has also chosen the Loam pedal's sealed cartridge and roller bearing sizes and placement to be low profile and well out of the way in the pursuit of comfort.
PNW's new pedal is designed to be mega durable too. Along with the sealed bearings the pedal's pines are made from steel for extra strength. Though, it goes without saying that every pedal will need servicing at some point. To make the job easy, the Loam pedal can be disassembled using one size of Allen key and pins can be replaced by threading them out through the underside of the pedal body.
The platform is said to measure in at 105mm wide and 115mm long, and they're claimed to weigh 445g per pair. With that, they come in three colours, Black Out, Nickleback, and Fruit Snacks.
These are available for £72.81 and we've got a set in for testing already so keep your eyes peeled for a review coming soon.
