Just launched at the Sea Otter festival in the US last weekend, these Line Pro pedals from Bontrager look bang up to date. We take a look before we hit the trails with them.
The guys from Bontrager dropped into Dirt HQ before heading over to Sea Otter and gave us a run through on what’s new with them for the 2016 season ahead. They have been busy and showed us sneak peaks of wide carbon rims, DH and trail handlebars, and developments to their Line range of components including this all new pedal, the Line Pro.
We’ve seen plenty of pedals roll into Dirt for testing in the last sixth months, with Chromag, Gamut and Crank Brothers all having new flat options and going up against our favourites in the 2016 Dirt 100. There are plenty of options out there but many suffer from an odd shape (often with a big bulge around the inboard bearing), too high a profile, or bearings that don’t last a full four seasons without giving up. Sometimes, one ride is enough to say the pedals aren’t quite right and we switch them for another type.
