Crank Brothers has reintroduced its popular pedals called Mallet 2 for 2012. With a lower profile, the body of the pedals is constructed with a split polycarbonate/aluminum design. Dotted across these nicely updated pedals are adjustable 10mm pins.
Weighing in at 428g, the pedals are packed with an extensive list of impressive updates. These features include a 9/16″ thread, All-Access four-sided entry, cleat screws and shims, and two cleats that come with a six-degree float and two release angle options.
There will be three price points for the 2012 Crank Brothers Mallet 2 Pedals, which are entry-level, mid-tier, and bells and whistles. With a large platform, the Mallet 2 gets a forged chromoly spindle and press-fit internals. Its combined needle and cartridge bearings guarantee smooth rolling.
