Pedal Review

Superstar Mag Lite Pedals $145

It was only when I picked these up off Ed H’s desk that I realised they were pretty special and a hell of a lot lighter than they looked. “Dog ’em on your bike” Ed said, so I did. I was a bit suspicious as to why he would pass up the opportunity to run such a fine pair of pedals himself…until I remembered he’s one of those clipped in kooks.

Anyhows, I think a lot of thought has gone into these Superstar pedals and the results are for all to see – simple lines, neat seals, slim profile, subtle graphics, perfect coverage area for normal feet and just the right amount of pins in all the right places. I’ve run these now on my Meta 4X for three months in all conditions and they’ve held up beautifully. The main pedal body has taken a fair few knocks and the magnesium alloy seems to scuff and dent as oppose to scratch, scrape and snap like other pedals have in the past.
