Not all that long ago, if you wanted to pick up a set of pedals for your kid’s bike there weren’t a lot of appropriately sized options. That, and the options that were there probably weren’t the best quality since kids’ bikes are already expensive enough, right? Fortunately, along with the wave of adult quality kids’ bikes, manufacturers are stepping up with quality pedals built for little feet.

Now adding to the options for your little ripper is German component maker, Sixpack Racing. With a miniaturized version of their Icon pedal, your little on can be just like you…

Machined from 6082-T6 aluminum with a chromoly axle, the Icon Mini has very similar specs to the big version including double DU bushing and 4 sealed bearings per pedal. The biggest difference is that there are a few less pins and M4 studs pins are used which should be a little more friendly to beginners’ shins. The pedals shown here are still prototypes so they may change a bit by poduction.

Also in the pipeline are the new Skywalker 3.0 and Kamikaze platforms. The Skywalker is and evolution of their current pedal with a 110x110x15mm body with a concave platform and 4 sealed bearings including the massive inboard bearing and a weight of 350g. Pricing is expected around €160 with availability around February. The Kamikaze is almost the same size platform at 108x110mm but is thinner at 13mm. Another prototype, the Kamikaze will be an interesting option if they reach their target MSRP of €70. Also available is the crazy light Millennium Mag Ti which tips the scale at 244g per pair for €240.

On the stem side, Sixpack is now offering a super short 35mm version of the Skywalker. Now available in 35, 50, and 75mm lengths, the stems are 31.8mm clamp only and the stubby one comes in at 113g. Any of their stems (or other stems for that matter) are perfect candidates for their Action Cam Mount. When not in use the mount can be flipped to hide inside your stem. Otherwise, the stem mount provides an interesting view point that is rattle free.

The Action Cam Mount includes an extra long compression bolt since the ability to flip the mount requires the starnut to be set deep in the steerer. The mount will include a tool to properly set the depth of the start, though if you don’t want to flip the mount you could always use it without a standard start to be able to switch it from bike to bike. The 2 in 1 mount includes the bolt and tool for €34.50.

That MINI pedal looks interesting for commuter bike / singlespeed use too.

Nice kids pedal addition. Fits well with the other options out there like SNAFU’s Anorexic Jr. and Answer’s (VP rebrand?) Jr pedals.

I don’t get cramming your star nut or compression plug deeper in the steerer just o flip the top cap and hide your gopro mount. Just switch it for the original cap when not in use. Takes the same time and tools.

Oh cool, another pedal company that makes products that look EXACTLY like other pedals that have been on the market for many years. That white pedal on the scale is a dead ringer for the Blackspire Sub350, the blue ano pedal is virtually identical to the original Point1 Racing Podium, and the “Icon” looks a whole helluva lot like the NS Radiance flats.

Well, haven’t seen a headset topcap for 75€ before… And looking their page its actually 35€. But I still find it funny that it doesn’t even include starnut for that price 😀
Cool concept tough.
