Haven’t written a review for a while, but finally I have some new gear to share my thoughts on. Flat pedals are a pretty key part of your MTB set up: without them how are you going to rotate the cranks, to turn the wheels, to climb that hill, so you can come down again with a big smile on your face?
My Alpitude was crying out for a bit of bling and so what better way than to add some orange pedals. I will admit that my first stop was SuperStarComponents – having already had a more than satisfactory experience with their Nano Thru Pin Flats there was no doubt I was going to start with their pedals. However, no orange in stock! Time to moove on.
I had seen some favourable review of the Moove pedals and they looked pretty similar so I gave them a call and ordered a pair of the Torque Thru Pin Flats.
A few twists of an Allen key and they are fitted nicely and spinning freely. First impressions were the same as with Superstar – sharp grippy pins, mean my feet won’t slip but they are gonna hurt if they catch!
I’ve had a few rides now and combined with my 5.10 Freeriders the grip is as sure as I expected and had read. The fresh pins are even providing some much needed grip for my worn Teva Links.
Bottom line if you are looking for some pedals and £40 is your budget, give Moove a try – you won’t be disappointed.
