A fresh batch of new gear from the team at PNW has arrived, with the new Loam Pedal and the Rover Hip Pack continuing the trend of quality cycling components with a focus on durability and value from the PNW brand.
PNW Components has been expanding their catalog of products exponentially this year, first with the introduction of apparel, and now a waist bag and alloy pedals. Upon initial inspection, it’s clear that both products are well thought out additions to the line, and value packed products you’re sure to be seeing on riders at your local trails.
The new Loam Pedal forged from 6061 aluminum, and CNC’d into its final form, spinning on sealed cartridge and roller bearings. Coming it at a listed 445 grams per pair, the pedal utilizes 22 replaceable steel pins for durability.
The platform size of 105mm x 115mm offers a nice platform for standing on, though ride time is still minimal to date, we can confirm there is more than ample grip. The pedal is designed to be easily serviceable as well, and can be disassembled with a single hex wrench.
Though pins aren’t included, in the event of damage, they can be removed and replaced by threading them out from the underside of the pedal body. First impressions of the Loam Pedal have been extremely positive, and we’ll be posting a more in-depth review after logging more time on them.
