"For urban use, commuting, touring, and light off-roading, the Sabot definitely delivers the goods." - GravelBike.com
Many VO staffers like large pedals, so we wanted to produce a high quality large-platform pedal that would be comfortable even when riding in thin soled shoes. We tested them in minimalist running shoes, leather dress shoes, hiking shoes, and even sandals.
Of course this style of pedal is great for urban riding, but we see other uses, too. More and more bike packers, long distance tourists, and adventure cyclists are riding with big BMX style pedals, and these make a more refined alternative.
The two-sided platform is a CNC-cut aluminum extrusion. It has loads of real estate to eliminate pressure points and all - approximately 100mm wide and 100mm long. There are 12 replaceable traction pins on each side of the pedal to offer great grip even when wet. We include rounded pins with the pedals so as not to damage street shoes, but they are easily replaced with more aggressive sharp pins.
Most existing pedals with large platforms use either loose ball bearings or are designed for BMX or downhill riding and use durable, but stiff, bushings. We designed a chromoly spindle that uses three sealed bearings, two inboard and one outboard. This makes for a very smooth pedal; it feels like a high-end road pedal, and the bearings are easy to replace. Weight is 408g per pair. Uses 6mm hex (Allen wrench) as well as flats (15mm pedal wrench) for easy installation and removal.

Placed three sets on three different recumbents. They hold your feet well and spread pressure out. Very comfortable. The bearings are silky smooth. Great deal!!
My favorite platform pedals! Large size gives fantastic support and the adequate grip is not over aggressive.
I have size 13 US feet and I replaced the pedals on my commuter bike and my klunker. They look great on both. My feet stay on with normal walking shoes and the joint of my small toe doesnt hang over the side anymore. I scratched a bit of the black off when I took a hard turn without raising up the pedal (the larger size caught a bit of concrete). The pedals are everything I was hoping for. Well made, functional and good looking.
Bought these pedals a while ago when having foot pain in clipless shoes. They didn’t quite fit the bike I had then, but they found a home on a recent bike I’ve been building up, where look great and work really well. The fit and finish is top notch. The bearings are super smooth.
Exactly as the title says. For a bit more detail, they really are big. I wear a US size 15 men's shoe and I've never felt like I had too little pedal. Also, the item description is right on the money about being able to ride these in leather soled dress shoes. I have. No slippage and no damage to the sole. Perfection!
