Sampson Sports, a company known for technically advanced framesets based in Denver, has introduced a new carbon fiber road pedal called Stratics SL after a meticulous process of development and testing. This new pedal has several features to pride itself on. There is an optional titanium axle model, too.

The 66mm wide top surface of the pedal comes with a supporting steel plate. Aside from making the platform more durable for the cleats, the plate enhances the pedal’s structural rigidity, as well. Long life is guaranteed by the pedal’s top plate, which is a fully polished stainless steel.

Built from long-strand carbon fibers, the body of the 2012 Sampson Stratics SL Carbon Fiber Road Pedal has lost a considerable amount of weight. Both comfort and power are maximized by the cleats that lay flat, thanks to the No-Rock cleat design of the pedal’s platform.
