DEITY SUPERVILLAIN Flat Pedal
Vital Review
Overall Review
Deity’s TMAC pedal has been around for quite a few years by now, and in that time it has become widely recognized as one of the leading options on the market. Case in point, it currently occupies the 3 rd spot in our long-standing flat pedal face off, trailing the DMR Vault and Hope’s new F22 by mere fractions of a point in our ranking system. Building on the legacy of such a successful product is always a daunting task, but that didn’t deter Deity from looking for ways to make it even better. The result is called the Supervillain, and it hits the shelves today (along with the Flat Trak, the...

What will allow their pedals to stand out in a sea of other options? What do we think of the performance after about 1.5 months on the trail? Keep reading to find out!

Newmen Components Beskar Flat Pedal
Vital Review
Overall Review
How do you make something very light yet very strong? In the Star Wars universe, it’s simple: use Mandalorian beskar, a super-tough alloy that can even resist direct lightsaber hits for some time. In the real world, most of us don’t need our stuff to be lightsaber-resistant, so Newmen settled for a regular Earthly aluminum body with a titanium spindle for their first foray into the flat pedal galaxy. To check their work, we laid our hands on a sample pair and put it to the test under our resident, clumsy old Stormtrooper’s size 12 battle boots. Keep reading to find out how it went! Strengths...
