The top 9 best flat mountain bike pedals under 100

In this article I’m going to provide an overview of the best flat mountain bike pedals under 100 dollars.

Flat pedals up to 100 dollars is about the sweet spot where this product is concerned. There’s a mixture of nylon composite and aluminium versions available at the price point.

And a handful entries offer more than what seems to be the industry standard of a single cartridge bearing and single bushing on a chromoly spindle.

Either way, whether you choose a single cartridge or dual setup, these pedals are all great products, that will assuredly last you a long time with the proper care.

And if they do show signs of wear and/or play, the majority offer service kits to renew them.

So without further ado, here’s my list of the best flat mountain bike pedals under 100 dollars.

Crankbrothers Stamp 2 Small

Crankbrothers Stamp 2 Small

The Crankbrothers Stamp 2 Small is one of the best sub-100 dollar flat pedals you can buy.

The reason is that they come in two sizes with this small one measuring 100 x 100 x 16 mm, perfect for feet up to size 10 (43).

The body is made from durable aluminium, with a chromoly axle holding not 1 but 2 cartridge bearings, and a single bushing to spread the load.

20, front-loading pins are used on a slichtly concave 439 gram platform to add a firm grip and keep your foot into place. And all Crankbrother pedals including this one is fully serviceable.

Crankbrothers Stamp 2 Large

Crankbrothers Stamp 2 Large

The Crankbrothers Stamp 2 Large is the larger version with a platform measuring 114 x 111 x 16 mm. It’s perfect for size 11 (44 EU) and up.

The pedals weigh a total of 494 grams.

RaceFace Chester

We at least know that the design of the RaceFace Chester was deemed nice enough to be copied. And it’s a nice-looking mountain bike flat pedal.

It has a big non-concave shape measuring 110 x 101 x 18.4 mm, with 18, rear-loading pins.

The weight is average, sitting at 360 grams.

It offers the same single cartridge bearing and bushing on a steel axle as many of the competitors.

Chromag Synth

The Chromag Synth is not a carbon copy, but (almost) a nylon composite copy of the Chromag Synth.

It means that where the Scarab sits far above a hundred dollars, the Synth is half that price.

For that price you get an 18-pin, front- and rear-loading, nylon composite MTB flat pedal measuring 100 x 107 x 13 mm, sitting at 380 grams.

Probably one of the biggest advantages of this nylon composite pedal is that you can buy a replacement pedal body should you smash it. If you ask me, every other pedal manufacturer should follow this, because it makes it much more attractive to choose a certain brand.

HT AN14A

The HT AN14A is a high-quality platform pedal with a rather small body.

That means the 94 x 95 x 17 mm CNC’ed body is better suited for smaller feet up to size 10.

If you fall into that category the 20 pinned, rear-loading body will prove to have ample grip in a smathering of anodized colors.

On top of that you’ll also get a CNC machined chromoly axle with dual cartridge bearings and a single bushing, which is above the industry standard of a single cartridge and bushing setup.

For its size it’s not the lightest, weighing 475 grams.

HT PA03A

The HT PA03A is a premium nylon composite MTB flat pedal.

It’s the most expensive on this list for good reasons. It has a big concave platform measuring 105 x 107 x 18 mm.

Weighing 345 grams, the platform has 16 rear-loading pins, and 4 nylon ones sitting at the axle.

The machined chromoly axle holds dual cartridge bearings and a single bushing, which sets these pedals apart from the rest of the competition. These dual bearings ensures a longer lifespan, because the load get’s spread out.

The concave design and relative large platform is simple but very effective in keeping your foot in place.

DMR V12

The DMR V12 is a modern flat pedal with the tried and true sealed cartridge and bushing running on a chromoly axle.

It’s not the lightest pedal sitting at 430 grams, but you do get a fully serviceable pedal with 20, rear-loading pins in a body measuring 100 x 95 x 16 mm.

But for a retail price of 60 pounds, there are more budget-friendly options.

VP Aim

The VP Aim is another great product from this Taiwanese giant.

A barrel-polished aluminium body weighing in a 445 grams, comes equipped with 20, front-loading steel pins.

Just like many other MTB flat pedals from this brand, 2 cartridge bearings and a single bushing spin around a CNC machined chromoly axle.

A very durable pedal for people who don’t mind the extra bit of weight.

Reverse Escape

Reverse Escape

I like the Reverse Escape very, very much, if not for the fact that it seems they don’t offer service kits. They should get that in order. You can get it serviced for 25 euros, but it means sending it of to Germany.

Apart from the lack of service kit, the Escape flat pedal has a lot going for it. Great design in a 100 x 100 x 16 mm aluminium body, running on a CNC machined chromoly axle with a classic setup of bearings and a single bushing.

Once Reverse starts offering service kit, this pedal could truly be one of the best sub-100 USD offerings.
