Just landed from UK importers Shorelines are these Scarab pedals and BZA stem from hardcore Canadian brand Chromag. Let’s take a look at what’s on offer…
You may be familiar with Brandon Semenuk’s pedal design the Chromag Contact, a light pedal with a body that sits closer to the cranks for trick control. The Scarab is the other option from Chromag (as well as a proper flat pedal for kids) and has some interesting features.
Firstly, the Scarab has the usual slim but large (110mm x 105mm) CNC’d platform with nicely rounded corners and a low 13mm central height. They weighed in on our scales at 428g a pair. The pedals spins on silky smooth bearings and you can rely on the Chromag’s wet Pacific North West testing grounds as proof that they’ll be up to our UK climate.
