Exclusive – BSD Safari Pedal Promo and Interview

BSD make pretty much every part under the sun, but until now they were lacking a pedal in their extensive range of simplistic and well designed parts.

BSD Safari Pedal available now

Reed Stark’s signature Safari Pedal from BSD is now available. Head over to the BSD site for more info on these super grippy badboys!

The Safari pedal is designed with extra pins in these high impact areas to ensure the pedal stays grippy after withstanding severe abuse. The optimal pin placement, hexagonal pin shape, and knurling all combine to make this one of the most durable, effective plastic pedals in the market.”
