Speedplay had a few updates, including these eye-catching new colors for the Syzr pedal bodies. The body is already replaceable, with different size parts to accommodate leg length discrepancies and other fit issues.
They had pink ones made for Alison Tetrick and her Dirty Kanza-winning bike, and now they’re considering making a few other options available for consumers. No timeline announced, hopefully they won’t take as long to hit the market as the pedals did.
The Brass Knuckles flat pedal is now shipping with taller pins.
Wren Sports‘ new winter damping cartridge comes is running a nearly 1WT oil and has bigger orifices with wider open ports. With oil, a lower number means it’s thinner, so it flows more easily. The new cartridge is made for temps below 40°F, tested in the lab down to -30°F. They say it was ridden at the 2016 Iditarod bike race, where wind chill pushed it down in the -50s, and that it was the first time a suspension part was used in that event because other forks just lock up at those temps. It Drops in and out of the fork, letting you swap it in a few minutes with the tools shown here. About $75.
Wren also has a new stealth thru axle option allows up to 8nm of tightening force, far more than you can get with the QR cam.
