The Electron pedals are a great product for the common rider, especially for the price. The Electrons are made from nylon reinforced material with complex fibers that is assembled on a steel axis with sealed bearings. The pedal is wide and thin just as you’d expect a modern pedal to be. It is 98X95X17 mm and comes at a huge variety of colors, Orange? Green? you got it. The official weight tip the scales at 354 grams, great weight for the price.
