With the push for thinner and thinner pedals to improve the feel and prevent 'rolling the pedal', it becomes more difficult to find a reliable spindle system. As sealed bearings get smaller and smaller, they can to blow up under load - sometimes even causing pedals to come off. Bushings help to solve this problem, but most bushing systems tend to develop play and start to rattle. We are using custom molded bushings and a unique dampening system. It allows the pedals to spin smoothly without ever developing play. The system is extremely user friendly and rebuild kits are inexpensive and easy to install.
These bushings will be used on a pratform pedal we are developing now.
