There is usually some amount of new tech floating about at bike trade-shows; granted, there wasn’t a great deal at this year’s CORE Bike, but we did spot a new flat pedal from Rideworks on Tony Barton’s Privateer 161, on show at the Magura stand. This is the first pedal we’ve seen from the UK Manufacturer, better known for their hubs, stems, headsets and chainrings. Tony informed us this one is a prototype with a titanium axle. We reached out to Paul at Rideworks for more information.

Prototype Rideworks Flat Pedal

The prototype Rideworks pedal weighs a claimed 166g per pedal with eight pins per side. The platform is 100mm x 114mm, CNC machined from 7075-T6 aluminium with a 6alv4 titanium spindle. The pedal runs a bush and cartridge bearing assembly with dual quad-ring sealing. Both are replaceable.

Some tweaks will be made before the pedal goes to production. Paul tells us some of the radii seen on the cuts will be large so they can use a bigger tool. However, the pedal body will remain at 18mm thick at its thickest point and 14mm thick at the thinnest point with a 2mm concavity. Pin height is still under debate but you can of course thread them in and out as you see fit.

Pedals with titanium axles never come cheap. This one is expected to retail at around the £200 mark. No ETA on pre-orders yet – keep an eye out on the Rideworks Instagram for more info.

@Ken Allen doesn’t look like that bike will accept a kickstand either

Kickstands are just for people who can keep up regardless.
