Deity has been creating some of the best mountain bike flat pedals for many years, now. Their T-Mac pedals are a fan favorite of our customers and Jenson employees alike, but they carry a fairly stout price tag. On the other end of the spectrum is their Compound composit pedals pedals that provide stellar performance at a great value. Deity has just introduced the Deftrap; a pedal that marries the massive pedal platform and other key features of the T-Mac with the tried-and-true reliability and value of the composite Compound pedals. Plus, they come in the full range of grip colors that Deity offers, so you can keep your whip dialed in style. We've just gotten our hands (er... feet) on these new pedals and are putting them through testing for deeper look videos and articles. In the meantime, read on below for the official press release from Deity.
Over the past decade, DEITY has developed a reputation for designing industry leading pedals that have created a cult like following and have become the go to choice for flat pedal fanatics. With the addition of the DEFTRAP pedal, we sought to defy the formula of quality x value by introducing what we consider to be, the highest performance nylon pedal ever designed. The DEFTRAP will revolutionize what you should expect from a nylon composite pedal with it’s non-offset symmetrical platform to offer added stability behind the spindle, a true concave pedal profile so your feet sink into it, 10 total pins (8 replaceable cr-mo pins and 2 molded pins), our tried and true sealed bearings and DU bushing system, and top tier nylon and glass fiber composite material to create a pedal that feels unlike anything on the market. With a focus on ride quality, increased foot support, added stability, leading traction, ability to skim over rocks, and even coming in 10 colors…the DEFTRAP will challenge you to rebel against the conventional perception that a value pedal cannot rival the best pedals on the market! Welcome to the DEFTRAP experience.
