VP Components VP-69 Pedal

Stuck on you.

Few things are more scary than sailing off a roller at high speed, then realizing that your foot is no longer on your pedal. Designed specifically for shoes with sticky soles, the VP Components VP-69 pedal provides excellent traction, so you won’t be popping off your pedals unexpectedly.

VP built the VP-69’s extruded and CNC-machined body with 6 of its tallest pins on each side for maximum hold. The pedal body is concave, as well, to cup the shoe. Reinforced pin attachment areas and ultra-tough pedal bodies are designed to withstand pedal strikes, and the durable chromoly spindle and sealed cartridge bearings will provide season after season of the toughest DH riding you can muster. The VP-69 is also fully rebuildable, so go as hard as you want.

Desce..

    These do the job. They don't slip, but they don't really spin either. The bearings almost feel sticky and with the pins locking into the soles of my sneaker, it's difficult sometimes to adjust my foot. It's tough to kick the pedal and get it to spin so I can readjust. This could all be user error tho.. I switched from clipless full time this season so It's just different than what im used to. Everyone else seems to love this pedal but I would like to see what else is out there to compare. Let me know if you feel me.

    Minimalist Platform for Sticky Shoes.

    The VP Components VP-69 pedals have fewer pins than some platforms, so they pair well with a stickier rubber sole. Beyond that they spin smoothly and keep a low profile underfoot.

    Smooth & Durable. I have these on 3 bikes. However, they aren't as thin (height) as some of the newer designs. That being said, they aren't as expensive either! 4 out of 5 stars

    No slipping off these bad boys!

      I got these to replace the cheap plastic pedals that came on my bike. As a new rider I'm not sold on clipless yet but I wanted a pedal that wouldn't allow my foot to slip off like on the plastic ones. I made the right choice! The pins are super sharp which isn't great when you hit your shin but awesome while you're riding. They're not too heavy and have made me feel tons more confident on the bike. Bonus points because they're way thinner than I expected!!

      No Slippage!

        I've run these on a couple of my bikes and they've yet to let me down. Talk about secure grippage! Be warned, the pins are sharp as all get out, and they will leave a permanent mark on your shin, calf, arm (it was a bike rack loading accident) or what ever part of your body comes in contact with them.



        In addition be being nicely priced, they aren't too heavy either. VP makes some quality stuff!
