Tech details

The Aeffect R pedals get a big 110mm x 115mm platform (up from 101x100mm on the original Aeffect), and a 15.5mm thick are 1.4mm thinner, too. The new flat pedals spin on a tough chromoly steel axle, with an inner bushing and outer sealed bearing, and are user-serviceable.

The 6000-series alloy body gets 10 replaceable top-loaded grub screw style traction pins per side, so you can dial in how much grip you want. But the pedal body is also thinner to maximize clearance over obstacles, and more open to better clear mud & debris.

Saying bigger is better, Race Face is also backing the new 440g pedals with a Lifetime Warranty.

Yes I’m running 165mm cranks and huge Chromag Dagga flats . Diggin em
My bike does have a high bottom bracket. But for my trails it’s ok .
I took a 26” Kona AbraCadabra with a 13.5” bb and made it 27.5” with 2.4 and 2.5” tires. My bb went up to 14.25” approximately. I did put a 2 degree offset headset making it a 64 degree ha. Then a 150mm fork instead of 160.
She’s now climbing like a goat n rippin the twistys . Most of all we have washouts and lots of tree roots on the climbs . If I had a lower bb and longer cranks I’d be hanging up . When I was 13.5” and 175mm cranks during full compression on fast tech areas I’d catch a crank sometimes. That’s scary. Now I’m ripping though and big flats are giving me so much control.
Love me big flats

Love big wide from the crank arm out pedals. I am running the Chromag Daggas and live them . With sticky soled shoes my feet are stuck down like glue also . But I like running a very stiff carbon soled shoe . I’m stuck down but can move my feet around on the BIG platforms as needed .
“It’s like dancing on the dance floor “ being able to put your feet wherever needed to create pressure for proper bike handling.
