Coming in hot with new gear at the Sea Otter Classic, Praxis has a full menu of new designs, including an all-new road race crankset, the Praxis Doon. But its not all skinny tire gear — Praxis is reviving a mountain bike favorite in the Podium pedal and a new mountain stem.

The Doon is Praxis’s new top-of-the-line road crankset. Like the Zayante it dethrones, its namesake is another famous road: Bonny Doon in Santa Cruz.

Praxis doon crankset

It’s the lightest and most advanced Praxis road crankset to date. Weighting in at a 342g 172.5 arm set. Thats 70g lighter than the Praxis Zayante carbon arm set. Our crankset weighed in a 577g with a 52/36 chainring setup.

Praxis uses its LevaTime II x-ring setup for the Doon, available in 48/32, 50/34, 52/36, and 53/39 combos with a two-tone anodized finish.

The Doon crankset features Praxis, our in-house C.R.A.F.T. carbon manufacturing, with a clever non-drive side arm aesthetic. The crankset has a 30mm spindle, but with Praxis bottom bracket options, it will fit any frame. However, the 2X road version, which has a 44.5mm chain line. Though though set up is incompatible with Shimano GRX front derailleurs.

The crankset is a module design, sold as 2X or as an arm set, so riders can customize their needs and favorite chainrings. The Doon will accommodate Praxis 3-bolt 1X Narrow/Wide rings so riders can dial in their gearing for the ride ahead. 

It accommodates 10, 11, and 12-speed drivetrains. Praxis lists KMC, Shimano, and SRAM as specifically compatible.

Though it doesn’t come with a power meter, it is powermeter compatible. Any 3-bolt power meter interface will work; Power2Max or SRM come to mind.

Podium Mountain Pedal

Praxis pedal out of box

Praxis is reviving the Podium Pedal (with blessings from Gamut’s founders). The updated design merges tradition with modernity. Praxis carries over some of the traditional elements from the past design but with some unique enhancements.

The body is crafted from Forged and CNC 6061-T6 Aluminum and has a 3mm concave platform. The footprint boasts a slim 14mm height, a generous 115mm length, and a 112mm width. There are 48 stainless steel removable pins. The pins are M4 threaded, so other M4 grub pins will work. The pins use a 3mm Allen fitting for easy installation/removal and allow you to customize your pin layout with a total of 12 pins per side.

Haven’t seen Praxis for a while, glad to see they are still making some nice parts.
With all the mtb stuff they are showing, I’m imagining that they have a new mtb crank in the works?
