If you’re looking for real estate under your feet, VP’s Harrier platform pedals are hard to beat. The flats are absolutely huge which is good news if you have large feet or you’re just looking for a lot of support.
The Harriers were already pretty light especially for a pedal their size, but lighter is usually better right? After throwing everything they have at the Harriers, the new Altitude version offers the same impressive size without a good chunk of the weight…
Starting at the axle, the Altitude ditches the chromoly spindle in favor of a lighter 6al/4v ti option. The Altitude keeps the exact same 102mm (w) x 109mm (l) x 18mm (h) platform as the original Harrier, but the new deck is machined to remove ever last gram of extraneous weight.
Even a few of the traction pins have been replaced with grub screws in the center of the pedal since they are
lighter than their hex-shaped counterparts. All said and done the pedal is said to have shaved around 100g from the Harrier with a target weight of 262g per pair. Priced at $@35, the Harrier Altitude will be sold along side of the Harrier and will be available soon.
Introduced recently, VP will begin shipping their Aim platform soon as well. The concave aluminum body measures 105mm x 105mm x 18mm, and includes a forged, heat treated, CNC chromoly axle and LSL along with sealed cartridge bearings. At 425g with rebuild kits available, the pedal is a steal at $60.
