Under Test: MKS Prototype Clipless Pedals

IMG_8332

Based on MKS‘ US-B (Urban Step-In B) pedals, these prototype pedals feature composite add-ons designed to aid entry and clipping in. And like the company’s US-B clipless pedals, the prototypes utilize lightweight resin bodies and triple-sealed bearings. The (included) premium brass cleats are Time ATAC-compatible, and can be configured for 12° or 15° release.

Stay tuned…

    I’d be interested to see if they can take a hit. Resin bodied pedals can go either way when it comes to a crash or pedal strike.

      Should know soon enough if they’ll hold up (lots of opportunity for pedal strikes on Colorado’s rocky trails).

          The release tension is easily adjusted with the included open-end wrench. A hex key is needed to remove the end/dust cap, which exposes the locknut and outer bearing. I haven’t actually disassembled them, but I plan to in the near future.
