The new Xpedo Ambix is a flip-flop clipless-or-flat mountain bike pedal that lets you snap into it on one side, or sty loose on the flats on the other. But not too loose, thanks to 10 replaceable pins threaded into the 6061 alloy body. They come in five colors, get micro-adjustable tension and sealed cartridge bearings.
These aren’t an entirely new concept…for that, there’s the commuter options from Wellgo…
Claimed weight for the Ambix is 400g, retail pricing for this and everything else here is TBD, some are early prototypes.
The F315 Folding Pedal is a different take on the category, simply splitting open rather than pulling outward and folding down. When opened, it juts out just 4cm from the crank arm. A pin in the center locks it into the closed position for riding. Weight is 296g thanks to a nylon body with bushings inside.
The Quick is a removable pedal that builds in a simple theft deterrent for your entire bike.
Simply remove the pedal from the frame with the tool-free quick release, then slide its body over a spike and press the lock closed. That will keep anyone from riding off on your bike while you duck into the store…and possibly even keep them from wiggling the wheel out of the frame.
The Rhythm is a slip-on cadence meter that connects via Bluetooth Smart and/or ANT+. Just slide it over the pedal’s axle then install the pedals like normal.
The design makes it easy to add cadence measurement to any bike and quickly move it between bicycles. It weighs just 25g, and you’ll get about 200 hours out of a standard CR2032 battery.
