NS Radiance Pedals

Simple, effective and not too bulky

‘Stay true!’ it says on these NS Radiance pedals… and sure enough this Polish brand never deviates from its core focus of dirt bike action. From DH to dirt jump, NS make kit for the hard-hitting rider; and they know a flat pedal as well as anyone. They speak our language.

The Radiance pedal is relative newcomer here at Dirt, but it has soon become a favourite. We quickly fell for the shape; its size, feel, and profile having a winning combination, regardless of which shoes we were wearing. It has a very clean design with little fuss. It’s a stylish looker too.

 

“We quickly fell for the shape of the Radiance, its size, feel and profile having a winning combination”

The fully CNC machined body is made from 6061 T6 aluminium and spins on a combination of two sealed bearings and bushings. The platform is low profile with the pedal machined to just 14mm at the axle centre (and 16mm at the edges) giving a great concave feel. Combine this with eleven adjustable pins and you have terrific grip in sloppy UK conditions.

The weight of the Radiance is low too, without sacrificing reliability. At just under 200g for each pedal we may well have expected compromises but these pedals have kept spinning smoothly and have yet to miss a beat. A tough, well designed pedal with a winning shape.
