Californian component constructors Crankbrothers has launched a new long spindle version of its Mallet E Enduro pedals.
The Mallet E LS features a 5mm longer spindle, which increases the q-factor to 57mm; as compared to the 52mm original Mallet E.
Crankbrothers believe the bigger q-factor equates to an improved shoe clearance, stability and control.
“The Mallet E LS is a direct result of feedback from our customers and pro riders,” said Kellen Trachy, Crankbrothers Global Marketing Manager, in the press release.
“Though a majority prefer the standard 52mm q-factor of the Mallet E for it’s maneuverability advantages in tight singletrack, a number of riders have asked for a wider version for increased shoe clearance and stability at speed. Now riders have the option to choose the model that meets their needs.”
Enduro World Series racers Curtis Keene, Martin Maes, and Iago Garay were seen riding the Mallet E LS at EWS #5 at Aspen Snowmass.
The Mallet E LS is priced at £129.99 and is available now. For more info click here.
