Are you the type not to let a little snow from getting out for a ride? To you, below freezing temperatures are no big deal? Well if those criteria apply and you’re a fan of flat pedals, Fyxation has a new option. Called the Mesa MP Subzero, these flat pedals are specially built to withstand the winter elements so you can ride all year.
How do these differ from their popular Mesa MP flats? Well, the start with the same thin nylon body with a maximum height of 14mm. Other than being quite durable and light, here the nylon has another benefit – heat retention. Not in the pedals, but in your feet. Often, a cold metal pedal can actually draw the heat right out of your shoe or boot in the winter leading to colder feet. Fyxation claims that the nylon body is better for retaining heat in your shoes for more comfortable riding.
To prevent the harsh, salty winter environment from rusting away your pedals, the Subzero pedals also have a few additions. Starting with the spindle, the chromoly spindle has been electroplated to prevent rust and the pedal runs on sealed bearings and DU bushings for longevity. The replaceable stainless steel traction pins have also been electroplated for increased durability.
Together with a 105mm wide platform that should play nice with bulky winter footwear, the Mesa MP Subzero looks pretty enticing for winter riding. Available in four colors, the pedals sell for $69.95 a set and are available now.
