UPDATE: This week's comp was once again hotly contested, but in the end, a classic whip did the trick. Photographer Swaraniak will receive a wheelset of his choice (Vital review HERE) while xtrain81, this week's lucky voter will score a pair of Crampon pedals - both from from the Canfield Brothers!

Featuring bead blasted Dynamal alloy rims laced to sealed bearing hubs with double butted spokes and brass nipples, the Canfield wheels are built to take abuse. Available in different wheel sizes and rim widths to suit any application, this wheelset will join you for your raddest adventures and come back for more.

The Crampon series pedals from Canfield Brothers is the evolution of more than 7 years of development and more importantly, real world testing. Proven on the world cup DH circuit but suitable for any style of riding, the benefits of these pedals extend way past the weight. The patented unique shape and profile offer the rider superb grip and maximum impact clearance. Because there is no front edge for the pedal to contact, there is never a stall moment or worse, over-the-bars crash that can occur with “block” style pedals. Keeping the foot close to the spindle of the pedal further increases the efficiency of the pedal stroke, and the “convex” shape naturally contours the foot and helps provide even more grip.
