Ah Interbike, it’s like Comicon for bike nerds… The Union have extensive coverage of it going on over at their site and in their Shadow Conspiracy product round-up they briefly touch on the new Structure pedal. Shadow have come up with the great idea of sandwiching replaceable plastic bodies onto an aluminium core via 4 allen bolts to give a more robust and longer lasting plastic pedal, it also uses 2 sealed bearings and a roller bearing; essentially giving the best properties of both metal and plastic. Head over to The Union to catch more.
