Having a place to put your feet is a pretty non negotiable part of your mountain bike setup, plain and simple. But, you don't want to be the one out of your ride crew who spent your post ride refreshment budget and part of next month's rent on fancy new pedals either. Race Face's Chester Pedals don't have the shiny aluminum construction of some of their pricier counterparts, but they won't empty your wallet either, and Race Face carefully constructed their nylon composite body to make it just as grippy and responsive as aluminum versions. Using eight replaceable steel hex traction pins on each side of the pedals, Race Face gives the rubber soles of your shoes a place to hang on when you're blasting through destructive territory, and it fully seals the bearing and bushing system, housed in a durable Cro Mo steel axle, to keep it working smoothly for as long as possible. If it eventually does need some work, Race Face made the system completely serviceable too, so you won't be forced to replace a perfectly good pedal because of a bushing or bearing problem.
