The new Crank Brothers stamp flat pedal is here and we’ve brought some back from last week’s visit to the Core Bike show where we had a full run through of all that is new from Carl and Frank’s component brand.
crank brothers stamp – the review
We’ve always regarded the Crank Brothers Mallet DH pedal as a benchmark design, and this year it yet again takes a place in our Dirt 100 pick. Much that we love the Mallet, Crank’s previous flat pedal, the 5050 was never top of our list, and as with many of their early pedals the bearings suffered badly in wet and gritty conditions. The 5050 is still in the range, and the bearings have been completely overhauled but what we’re really interested in is this new Crank Brothers Stamp pedal.
We first spotted this pedal at the Eurobike show last autumn, not only was it a completely fresh design for Crank Brothers but it came in two platform sizes, a feature that we also saw on a flat pedal from Spank. The smaller Stamp pedal fits size 37 – 43 feet and below, and the larger from 44 to monster sizes. We think that for the smaller footed rider, a narrower pedal giving increased clearances in the corners and a slightly lower weight can only be a good thing.
Platform sizes, S: 100mm x 100mm, L: 111mm x 114mm
