Brendan Fairclough needs no introduction, and on the World Cup circuit he epitomises flat pedal riding with his effortless style. In 2010, after much development with the man himself, DMR released the Vault pedal. They were a runaway success and their large surface area combined with a low profile won over many riders. As a way to say thank you, DMR have launched the Brendog pedal.

It differs from the Vault in its matt black colourway, Brendog graphic and signature and it comes with spare moto pins to allow you to tune your grip to your style of riding. Built from 6061 aluminium with a 4140 Cro-Mo steel axle they are very light for the materials used. The pins are also flippable, allowing you to fine tune the grip even further.

On the trail we loved the big wide flat platform, and the aggressive pins kept your feet glued to the pedals. The option to tune the grip is great, when matched with really good shoes pedals can sometimes feel sticky, but a bit of tuning of the Brendogs and even the fussiest rider will be happy.

Stealthy, good looking and highly functional if they are good enough for Brendan then they are more than capable of looking after us!

His first mountain bike was a Trek 820, which he bought in 1990. It didn’t take him long to earn himself a trip to the hospital on it, and he’s never looked back since. These days he’s keeping it rubber side down, riding locally and overseas as much as possible.
