After almost four years in development, the Edco 3ax pedals have made it through their Kickstarter campaign and through production. Edco showed a final version at NAHBS, along with new wheels, but they just announced that they’re shipping for $299 a pair.
The pedal body sits on two small “swings” that allow it to rock back and forth for 4º of lateral sway. That combines with 9º of cleat float to create a more natural foot motion. According to their third party testing, it resulted in “17% less lateral knee movement, up to 5.4% increase in rider efficiency, and more even foot pressure distribution.”
Click to enlarge and you’ll see the two metal bars that connect the pedal body to the axle, letting it swing in a small arc. Hit the two links above for more detailed shots from NAHBS and prior coverage, too.
