When winter comes around, most people put their bikes away for the season and turn to their indoor trainers or worse, become couch surfers. There is however, a large contingent of cyclists that don't fear the elements and actually embrace them. These tough souls will ride year round regardless of the conditions outside which requires gear that are as tough as they are. Introducing the Mesa MP Subzero pedal.
The Mesa MP Subzero builds off of our popular Mesa MP pedal platform that was originally launched in 2011. The Mesa MP uses a durable nylon body and replaceable steel pins that are designed to handle the toughest riding conditions and over the years these pedals have been embraced as much by the dirt/downhill and fat bike rider as it has our core urban customer. For the new Mesa MP Subzero, we've taken all the great features that riders love about the Mesa MP and winterized them for the year round cyclist.
Whether you're fat biking in the winter or are a year round commuter, riding through the elements during the winter throws a lot at you and your gear. Even with religious cleaning and washing of your bike, winter riding tends to take a toll on metal parts and rust is almost a foregone conclusion of riding in the winter. Here in the Midwest and most of the country with snow/ice, salt is used to clear the roads but it wreaks havoc on your bike.
The Mesa MP Subzero was designed with that in mind. Each pedal includes 16 stainless steel replaceable pins that are designed to prevent rust while providing tons of grip to your winter riding shoes or boots. In addition, we've electro-plated the sealed bearing cromoly spindle on the Subzero pedals, further rust-proofing the pedals. Finally, by sticking with the impact grade nylon body over alloy, these pedals do a better job at keeping your feet warm than a metal bodied pedal on cold winter rides.
The Mesa MP Subzero is $69.95 and is available in 4 great color options: Black body with black, blue or orange anodized pins and a grey body with black anodized pins. These pedals look great on any ride and are designed to stand up to the elements. Finally there's a pedal as tough as you. Don't put your bike away for the winter. Ride it!
