Trail riding fans of e*thirteen should be happy to see the return of flat pedals – now lighter, more affordable, and just as durable as the original LG1 pedals. Instead of mixing machined alloy and plastic into one pedal, e*thirteen split the two – now offering the nylon Base & alloy Plus pedals sharing the same replaceable pin placement as that first LG1.

Both pairs of new e*thirteen flat pedals share the same concave platform body design & 22 replaceable traction pins to offer solid grip for technical riding. The cross design puts a couple of pins close to the axle in the middle of the pedal body like the original LG1, for extra traction even if your foot gets kicked out of line riding rough trails. Both materials still allow for a low profile design to minimize rock strikes, and come in three color (red, blue & black) options to match your latest long, low & slack enduro bike.
