    “Vaults are my go to pedal for gravity riding”

    The Good:

    The grip and support offered by this pedal is incredible. The large platform size, concave shape and thin profile inspire confidence and the pins offer good grip with most flat-pedal specific shoes. The pedal is robust and has resisted lots of rock strikes, stumps and general abuse without much more than cosmetic damage. As the large platform also sits away from the crank (axle end is proud of the pedal body by 10-12mm) it is more prone to catching in ruts etc. than some other pedals ive tried, it does however stop my foot from rubbing the crank arm quite as much. Overall these are a great pedal for hard riding.

    The Bad:

    The pedals run on a plastic bush (inside edge) and small cartridge bearing (outer edge)which spin smoothly and last well, I have found that the bush develops a small amount of play quite quickly. Although this doesn’t impact the performance too much it does mean they need servicing and lubricating more regularly than others, otherwise they become noisy.

    Overall Review:

    These pedals have survived weekly abuse for two years and still have plenty of life left in them, despite some minor niggles with the bearing system i would not hesitate to recommend them and they remain my default pedal for most riding. They come in a range of colours and a price comparable with the competition, definately some of the best flat pedals currently on the market.

    “Straight from the Vault”

    The Good:

    Flat, wide, grippy, thin (but not the thinnest out there), spin quite well, awesome looks (Batman would say: ka-BLING!). Tunable pins.

    The Bad:

    The colored pins don't stay colored for very long, the anodizing goes quickly. There have been some reports of bent pedals which have led to a redesign (leaving a bit more material in certain areas during the CNC process) that should address the issue. (I personally have no reliability issues to report, after 6 solid months of riding FR/DH with them). They may be a bit pricey for some budgets, but they are far from the most expensive pedals out there, and they are certainly worth every penny and cent!

    Overall Review:

    Bling pedal that backs up its looks with awesome performance. Wide and grippy, these are the perfect flat pedal! If you're the kind of rider who bangs their pedals hard into every rock they see, you may want to look elsewhere, but for everybody else, these rock (pun intended)! Get some!
