Adding to their already colorful collection of pedals, iSSi has a new flagship model. Designed as the successor to the iSSi II, the Flash is a light weight two sided clipless pedal with a much smoother body design. Available in ten different color options, the Flash also includes multiple spindle options so you can dial in your fit…

Created to offer a bigger, broader platform, iSSi says that the new shape was designed in house which is a departure from the iSSi II. It’s also said to shed mud better which should make it an ideal option for CX bikes among mountain bike and other uses. The top of the line Flash III uses three bearings for the smoothest spin of the three and a retail of $100. The Flash II drops down to a bushing and a bearing at $80. Both the II and III come in 10 colors and have options for extended spindles.

The Flash I is the most affordable with dual bushings and is available in black or silver for $60. Available now, keep your eyes out for limited edition colors that will be released throughout the year.

Replacing my blown out XT pedals with substantially cheaper iSSi pedals has been a great choice. I really like them, and don’t feel like I sacrificed anything.

I’ve learned from watching QVC enough, that all you have to do is make something in a bunch of fun colors, and it will sell like crazy. Knives with blue, red, or purple handles, I’ve even seen window washing hose attachments being sold in purple and orange and yellow, so why not a set of pedals in all manner of fluorescent colors!

The big gain here is variable stance width options. Through careful bike fitting I’ve come to feel most comfortable with a 65mm axle on the right and 59 on the left. Shimano’s lack a stance widths is staggering.

That’s what spacers (washers) are for. Much simpler than changing the entire spindle.

Yeah, but if Jdog wanted to gain 6mm on the right using spacers, he’d have substantially less thread left in the arm. For smaller adjustments, spacers are great though.

Apart from the spindle length options (which are substantial), are these really any different from Shimano SPD’s or the like?

I think these came about, in part, due to the way that Shimano America distributes pedals in the USA. QBP, which is the biggest distributor in the USA, started offering these pedals, since Shimano snubbed them. Functionally, besides the spindle length benefit you mention, these also have a top plate that the cleat can rest on, whereas newer generation Shimano’s have no top plate. That can potentially give you a little more stability between the shoe and pedal, depending on how tight all the tolerances are, although it can make them slightly harder to clip into in thick mud.

I love my issi 2 triple bearing. Super smooth bearings, lighter than the xt’s they replaced and they look great

Issi and other brands are killing it where Shimano’s cold shoulder to IBDs has led to this. Requiring MSRPs, and allowing nashbar, jensen, etc to hawk last season’s gear for ridic lower prices will be a crack in Shimano “accessory” component sales volumes.

Genuinely – how many of you guys still see LBSs selling shimano (PRO) handlebars, saddles, pedals, etc? Of my three LBSs, two have dropped them, other than old stock pd-525s.
