These are a bit dear IMO, hoped for something in the DMR Vault price band.

@Hopetech @eurobike hi guys, any ideas on the retail price of the new pedals? Thanks.

I knew they would be about that. Look at pointones and crampns etc.
People pay it. There is a lot of machining on them though. I dont think they are over priced - just expensive.
Im not taken by them yet.

I wanted to like them but not overly struck myself. Prefer my Vaults to look at and they ride really well too.

£120 isn't actually that much in the world of top end flat pedals. They'll see loads of them I'm sure.

Look a lot like the straitline AMPs.
My next set of pedals will be the new Shimano Saints, reasonable width and weight and still got excellent bearings and most importantly the platform is concave.

They also look like point one podiums too.
I guess there isnt a hug amount more you can do with a platform of metal.

I saw the saint pedals and they do look pretty good.
