Named after US pro rider Brad Benedict these pedals as good as you would expect when an elite rider has had a hand in the design.

Specialized Bennies Platform Pedals

Equipped with 12 replaceable screw pins on either side the Bennies are a sleek, yet slightly concave (you have to look REALLY closely to notice this) pedal and despite the fact they are a little narrower than its competitors, offers supreme grip when on the trails.

[related_articles]Elsewhere the pedal has proved pretty bullet proof, having taken quite the hammering since I started using them a few months ago. The axles run sealed cartridge bearings which have shown little wear and thankfully and very easy to maintain.

Price is also on the Bennies’ side. At £60 I think they offer superb value for money as they not only offer supreme grip but have also shown their worth when it comes to wear and tear. Oh and did I mention, they look pretty sweet too!

The Bennies are available in three colour choices : Black, red and white.

Price: £60
