At A Glance
We tested these back in Issue 5, and loved them then, the Nano Techs offer a huge stable platform for riding on and plenty of grip. Just what we were looking for! We opted for the snazzy red colour to match the red on the Scratch; it is all about the pimping after all! They offer excellent value for money and we haven’t heard of any issues with them at all so they should prove reliable for the race.Buy Pedals on

Coupled with some decent shoes these pedals really do offer unrivalled grip. The terrain and trails we such that flat pedals really were the only way forward, especially on the snow where you needed to be constantly on and off the bike. Plus the steep switchbacks and loose fire road bends at the top of the qualifier meant a flat pedal inspired confidence. The Nano techs were excellent, they didn’t miss a beat and although they look a little tired now they are still going strong. We smashed them into and over numerous rocks and generally treated them like they shouldn’t be. Each time they didn’t falter, they still spin smoothly and remarkably all the pins are still in the pedals!
Great looking, low profile wide platform pedal. Offers excellent stability for the foot and should prove hassle free in terms of maintenance.
