DEITY DEFTRAP REVIEW:

HOW DO THEY STACK UP AGAINST THE COMPETION?

It used to be that the only options for composite flats were just cheap commuter pedals with next to no grip, terrible shape and feel, and prone to shattering if you even passed a nearby rock. You could find some BMX pedals that were better, but the grip and size still weren’t ideal for the demands of mountain bike riders. Luckily, brands like Deity, Race Face, One Up, and others have completely changed the face of that market with strong, fairly light, large-platformed, and affordable composite pedals.

Over the years, Deity has been cranking out some of the best flat pedals for years and their latest nylon composite pedal, the Deftrap, continues that stellar legacy, and then some. A few of us, at Jenson USA, have had the opportunity to put these pedals to the test. Read on to see our full ride review and pedal details.

Deity Heritage

Deity’s line of flat pedals has always embodied the core personality of the brand and perhaps no pedal has done a better job of this than their TMAC signature series pedal. Designed to meet the needs of Tyler McCaul’s hard-charging freeriding, the TMAC pedals are arguably one of the most impressive pedals available in the bike world and the reviews from customers, bike industry folk, and pro riders are a true testament to their top-tier performance and stunning looks. These pedals have amazing grip, a large and comfortable platform, a truly deep 2.5mm of concave shaping, and come in an array of beautiful colors and precision aluminum machining. All this quality, durability, and refinement does come with a somewhat hefty price tag. You might be asking, why I’m talking about the TMAC pedals if this review is about the new Deftrap pedals? Well, the TMACs set the bar and were the jumping off point when it came time to develop the Deftrap. So, let’s dig in.

As you can tell, I’m a big fan of the TMAC pedals and think they are a perfect fit for when I used to ride a lot more freeride and DH-oriented bikes. But, like many of you, I found myself struggling to convince my wallet to open wide enough to put the TMAC pedals on most of my bikes. It’s not that the TMACs aren’t worth their price. In fact, with that price comes some of the best-in-class grip, comfort, platform size, control, and durability. But, these days, most of my miles are on my trail or enduro-light bikes that see a bit less abuse and where weight still kind of matters. So, for the last several years, I’ve opted to match those bikes with the new crop of quality nylon composite pedals due to their great performance and stellar price, plus they tend to be just a bit lighter.

THE CONTENDERS

My first foray in riding composite pedals started off riding the Race Face Chesters. While these performed rather well, the size and shape of their concave platform wasn’t my cup of tea. To try something new I switched to One Up’s Composite Pedal that have a slightly larger but thinner platform than the Chesters, longer pins and a convex shape. A concave versus convex platform shape is entirely a personal preference, that you will want to determine for yourself. For me, I found that I liked how the convex shape wrapped my toes a tiny bit, which felt like I was scooping the pedal more on jumps and during efficient pedaling. This wrapping seemed a better fit for my bikes that see a lot of pedaling versus my more gravity-oriented bikes.

I’ve been very satisfied with my One Up pedals, so when Deity sent me their new Deftrap pedals for testing, I knew there would be a pretty high bar they’d need to beat for me to want to swap out my current pedals. My previous experience with concave pedals left me a bit hesitant that I would like that shape as much, or better, than what I had gotten so comfortable on.

DEFTRAP VS THE COMPETITION

On paper, the Deftrap pedals look impressive, but there are a few details where the One Up’s specs appear to edge them out. The One Ups weigh about 30g less, are a touch thinner, and have a slightly larger platform. These are pretty small differences, so I wondered if I would even notice while out for a ride. The shaping of the One Up pedals is more of a hexagonal shape with chamfered edges versus the nearly square shape of the Deftraps (more on that later).

During testing, I also had a pair of Chromag Scarab pedals laying around from a buddy’s bike. I’ve spent very little time on these, but thought I’d throw them in the mix to compare specs. The Scarab pedals are another customer favorite. The aluminum platform size is within a few millimeters in either direction of the Deftraps, weight is ~430g, and the have a concave shape that is 13mm thin at the axle. The Scarabs have some cool features involving the pins. First, you can set the pins at 2 different heights by removing a washer. There are also 40 different placement options per pedal for those pins to customize the feel and grip, and the pins have a shear line, so if you smack a rock the pins won’t damage the pedal and are easily replaced.

Ride Review

Now, that we’ve looked at how these compare on paper to some of their closest competition let’s get to the dirt of how they feel out on the trail. In short, the Deftraps were damn impressive! These pedals have grip in spades, the concavity was very comfortable, and there seemed to be so much platform area. Their grip was less than my experience with TMACs due to less concavity and fewer pins but was competitive with the Chromag Scarabs. While not as light nor as slim (or light) as some of the other competitors, I didn’t feel too tall over my axles. Instead, the concave shape and longer profile made it feel more “in the pedal” than on the thinner competitors. I did find that it did take a bit more footwork to shift my position on the pedals if I had planted my foot in the wrong spot when compared to the One Ups. I attribute this to the concave versus concave shape of the two pedals.

TRAIL: PLATFORM SHAPE

All the pedals I’ve mentioned are fantastic options, but there is something a bit extra special about how at-home my feet felt from my very first ride. I’ve been analyzing the numbers and comparing pedals side-by-side to try to figure out why these feel so good underfoot. Honestly, I couldn’t figure it out until I shot a few photos of the pedals stacked on top of each other. It was only then, that I could see why Deity’s non-offset profile was what their test riders liked best. Most of the other pedals had some sort chamfered edges to help the pedals slide over trail obstacles during a pedal strike. Theoretically, that makes sense, but I’m not sure I’ve ever noticed that in the real-world. What I did notice was just how much larger the Deftraps felt underfoot despite have very similar platform sizes. In looking at the stack of pedals it seems that the usable real estate is bigger due to the boxy shape. All I know is that this was the one marketing point that I was certain wouldn’t matter but found to be the most impressive instead.

ENDURO: 38 FLOAT

Suspension is evolving at a rapid rate and becoming much smoother, stiffer, and more tunable. Modern suspension is more capable than ever before and lets riders conquer the terrain with ease. The Fox 38 Float series forks are hard-hitting, long-travel enduro specialists. It carries over all of the new features of the redesigned 36 and pairs them with the stiffer 38mm to cope with the hardest hits. You'll find the floating axle to match the exact width of your hubs, the lower leg bleeders and the air channels to further perfect your suspension feel. A feature not found on the 36 is the elliptical steer tube that adds material where it's needed, but not where it isn't, to increase strength and stiffness.

FEATURES

  • Optimized for 160-180mm of travel Packing the same revolutionary feature set as the new 36, the category defining 38 is ready for the big time.
  • Float EVOL technology increases negative air spring volume
  • Bleeders on the lower legs allow for atmospheric pressure equalization at the press of a button
  • Elliptical steerer optimizes the stiffness-to-weight ratio, placing more material only where it is needed, and eliminating every ounce of it where it’s not.

DOWNHILL: 40 FLOAT

DOWNHILL: FOX 40

Completely redesigned for 2021, the line of Fox 40 forks are built for the most demanding riding conditions from DH racing to park laps to remote freeride. It features a floating axle offers a distinct performance advantage due to their unique ability to match the exact width of the fork's wheel mounting surface precisely to the front hub flange spacing. This creates a perfect chassis alignment that eliminates unwanted friction between the upper and lower fork legs. The lower legs have bleeders that allow for atmospheric pressure equalization at the press of a button. With the lower leg arch, you'll have enhanced stiffness without the extra weight. These forks feature Fox's legendary Kashima coating that provides a buttery smooth feel paired with a GRIP2 damper that provides high and low-speed compression adjustments and high and low-speed rebound adjustments.

FOX SERIES LEVELS

FACTORY

"Factory" says it all. The best-of-the-best technology Fox has to offer is available in their Factory Series models with the buttery smooth, and ultra durable Genuine Kashima Coat. These products are World Cup proven. You'll find the latest Grip2 damper paired with Factory forks for maximum tuneability.

PERFORMANCE ELITE

Performance Elite forks retain the same adjustments, features, dampers, weight, and 7000 series aluminum upper tubes as Factory Series, but have black anodized stanchions instead of Genuine Kashima Coat; a killer option for those who love a subtle look or are looking to save a few bucks.

PERFORMANCE

Performance Series forks retain the same black anodized 7000 series aluminum upper tubes as Performance Elite, except paired with a GRIP damper making this the most affordable option out of the Fox lineup, but lacking some of the top-end bells and whistles.

KASHIMA VS BLACK ANODIZED STANCHIONS

Beyond the looks, there is one key aspect that sets Kashima apart from it's black anodized counterpart; durability. The friction performance of the two finishes are nearly identical (slight nod to Kashima) and would be hard for most riders to notice. So, why would you want Kashima? That all lies in it's durability. Kashima provides that same low-friction feel for longer with less wear on the stanchion surface. This means less maintenance and better feel for longer. 

Back to Top

FLOAT EVOL AIR SPRING

Fox's FLOAT EVOL linear spring curve gives forks and shocks plushness off the top, extra mid-stroke support, and more tunable bottom-out progression, allowing riders to tap into the ideal pairing of front and rear-end feel.

EVOL technology increases negative air spring volume, optimizing small bump sensitivity. EVOL’s linear spring curve delivers plushness off the top, extra mid-stroke support, and more tunable bottom-out progression.

The benefits of EVOL are further enhanced by the new Lower Leg channels and Bleeders (found on 36, 38, and 40 forks), which both function to reduce air pressure captured in the lower legs, allowing the EVOL air spring to operate freely without unintended interference.

DAMPER OPTIONS

GRIP2 DAMPER - UPDATED FOR 2021

The GRIP2 damper is the benchmark for unparalleled ride quality and ultra-precise on-the-fly adjustability. For 2021, Fox has taken the GRIP2 to the next level by adding their patented VVC technology to the high-speed compression circuit. VVC is a proprietary variable valve control system that allows for external fine-tuning of suspension performance. GRIP2 achieves with the twist of a knob what typically requires the time consuming and complicated task of completely disassembling and reassembling the fork.

FIT4

In its fourth generation, Fox's patented FIT4 closed cartridge system provides three on-the-fly compression damping positions—Open, Medium, and Firm—to adapt to varying trail conditions. Factory Series forks feature an additional 22 clicks of low-speed compression adjust in the Open mode, allowing riders to fine-tune their exact damping preferences.

GRIP DAMPER

Inspired from moto, the GRIP damper uses the FIT sealed cartridge technology combined with a coil-sprung, independent floating piston. GRIP allows excess oil to purge through specially designed ports at the top of the damper to maintain consistent damping and increase durability. Performance Series forks provide Open, Medium, and Firm modes with additional micro-adjust between settings.

Back to Top

AXLE OPTIONS: QR VS KABOLT

Many of the forks in Fox's lineup can be configured with either their quick release (QR) style thru-axles or with their Kabolt axle. The QR style axles are very convenient since they don't require any tools to remove them, but they carry a bit of a weight penalty and have the QR lever can be exposed to possible rock strikes if you ride techier and tighter trails. The Kabolt loses the QR level in exchange for using a traditional 6mm hex tool, but shaves weight, reduces exposed parts, and comes in orange or black colors. You will need to be sure to have a 6mm or multitool handy for removing your front wheel, but most riders carry tools on the ride anyway, so it's not a big deal.

FLOATING AXLE

The all-new 36 and 38 come equipped with a new quick-release lever operated patent-pending floating axle system, combining the benefit of a floating axle with the ease of a tool-free quick-release. With this system, axle/hub spacing is locked in via a floating sleeve, allowing repeated front wheel removal and reinstallation while maintaining perfect fork alignment.

Floating axles might look similar to other axles, but in fact they offer a distinct performance advantage due to their unique ability to match the exact width of the fork’s wheel mounting surface precisely to the front hub flange spacing, thus creating perfect chassis alignment and eliminating unwanted friction between the upper and lower fork legs. Floating axles provide much smoother suspension movement throughout the entire range of the fork’s travel, notably improving sensitivity and overall ride quality.

Available optionally is the new Kabolt-X, a lightweight bolt-on floating axle exclusively for the all-new 36 and 38 that not only shaves grams but also increases torsional stiffness via its sleeveless, single-sided pinch bolt design. Chassis alignment must be reset each time the front wheel is removed and reinstalled on both the Kabolt-X and 40 floating axles, but the end result is the same – perfect alignment and perfect performance.

Back to Top

STEP-CAST

Chasing gram-shaving without sacrificing stiffness is an common endeavor in the world of bikes. Fox found a very creative way to accomplish this goal with their Step-Cast technology. Visually, Step-Cast forks are easy to spot with a cutaway from the lower leg around the rotor and hub. This cutaway is one of many methods of shaving weight that Fox employed to make their Step-Cast forks some of the lightest in the market. Fox also shortened the upper tubes raising the lower leg floor and allowing for the hollow "step" on the lower leg. This step allowed Fox to narrow up the stance of these forks by 10mm (meaning less material) while still accomodating the rotors and spokes, and keeping torsional stiffness. Fox even modified their FIT4 damper to reduce unnecessary materials and consolidate parts all with the intent of reducing the overall weight. Step-Cast can be found within Fox's 32 and 34 line of forks intended for light XC and light trail style riding.

Back to Top

AIR CHANNELS

As a fork compresses, the air volume within the lower legs decreases, increasing air pressure. The more the fork compresses, the more pressure increases. This effect can have the unintended consequence of preventing full travel from being achieved. The lower leg channels help alleviate this issue by dramatically increasing air volume within the lower legs and thereby reducing the amount of additional unintended pressure ramping.

Another benefit of these channels is that lower leg bath oil is circulated to the upper reaches of the lower legs, continuously lubricating the foam rings and bushings as the fork compresses and extends through its travel.

Back to Top

AIR BLEEDERS

Lower leg bleeders allow for atmospheric pressure equalization at the simple press of a button. Pressure build-up in the lower legs dramatically decreases fork performance, preventing full travel from being achieved, and diminishing small bump sensitivity and responsiveness.

Back to Top

LOWER LEG ARCH

Stiffness-to-weight is the ultimate metric for bicycle design. Engineers invest countless hours poring over every ounce of material in an effort to optimize this critical ratio. The all-new lower leg design pulls out all the stops, shaving every possible gram while making sure not to compromise stiffness or strength requirements of modern enduro and gravity style riding.

Modern frame designs and geometry trends require modern suspension design solutions. The arch design of the all-new 36, 38, and 40 is designed to pair perfectly with modern Enduro and Downhill bikes. Head tube profiles have grown larger and larger, and fork offsets shorter and shorter. The new arch shape takes this need into account by jutting forward to provide ample headtube clearance at full compression. State-of-the-art computer modeling techniques helped Fox to create an organic lower leg shape that optimizes stiffness with the absolute minimal amount of material.
