The top 7 best flat pedals for small feet

In this article I’m going to cover the best flat pedals for small feet. It means you’ll find pedals on this list with a maximum width of 102 millimeters.

Obviously you could to ride larger pedals, but you run the risk of incorrect pin placement and more frequent pedal strikes if you do. Just as you can run the risk of using larger size shoes increases the risk of tripping so to speak.

Except for Crankbrothers, manufacturers choose to size their pedals in different models, instead of the same model in different sizes. Unfortunately that means that some of the best pedals aren’t all that good for female riders, who usually have small feet, or people with small sizes in general.

That being said, if you look hard enough there are still a number of incredible flat pedals out there, who’ll support your trail riding skills for many, many miles to come.

So without further ado, here’s my list of the best flat pedals for small feet.

Crankbrothers Stamp 1 Small

The Crankbrothers Stamp 1 Small is the nylon composite version of their aluminium counterpart.

It measures 100 x 100 x 13 mm and offers a chromoly axle with both a glide and cartridge bearing.

Slightly concave with 18, rear-loading pins, it’s one of the best-looking and lightest nylon offerings out there, weighing only 299 grams.

I don’t know why, but Crankbrothers is the only company offering their pedals in two separate sizes.

The Crankbrothers Stamp 7 Small is obviously the smaller version of their most popular Stamp 7, which for years has been one of the best-selling flat pedal in the market.

It makes sense, because many riders have found the 100 x 100 x 13 mm body to fit their feet perfectly and hold just enough grip with 20, front-loading pins.

The easy-to-service chromoly spindle with 2 glide bearings ensures a long-lasting life and is very durable.

Burgtec Penthouse MK5

UK’s Burgtec Penthouse MK5 is a very high-quality premium mountain bike flat pedal.

The aluminium body with chromoly axle runs on 2 bushes, not one, and a single cartridge bearing. It means each rotating part gets a lesser amount of load from the pedal which ensures a longer lifespan. A characteristic offered only in the best pedals.

Personally I like the square design very much, and the CNC machined body is simply stunning. It hold 16, rear-loading pins, and weighs in at 379 grams for the pair. It dips at the axle enabling a concave design for more grip.

One of the best for sure.



The lightest entry on this list, by far, is the HT ME03T. They are made of magnesium (hence the M) and a titanium spindle, which lowers the weight to a mere 218 grams. This is extraordinary considering the fact that the next lightest entry is 35 procent heavier.

The pedals are extremely thin. 11mm So if you like your pedals to be anorexic, and absolutely minimize the risk of pedal strikes, this is the setup for you.

HT (which stands for Hsing Ta) is a brand that only manufacturers bicycle pedals (or it seems that way) and these are both their lightest and most expensive flat pedals. And with a price almost nearing 300 euros they are wallet-draining indeed.

The pedal makes use of HT’s proprietary EVO+ bearing system, which includes ball bearings within a container between two separate races, and 2 bushings.

The platform is relatively small at and incredibly thin at 102 x 96 x 11 mm. The platform does provide ample amounts of grip with 20, rear-loading pins made from aluminium to further reduce the weight.

There’s something special about any bike component that caters to weight weenies, and this is truly a gorgeous piece of engineering for those who’re willing to spend the money.



The HT AE03 is the aluminium version of HT’s high-end ME03 pedal.

In all other respects it’s basically the same, which means you get an incredibly thin pedal measuring 102 x 96 x 11 mm, which promises the lowest risk of pedal strikes of all pedals out there.

It offers a chromoly instead of titanium axle and the aforementioned aluminium body with 20, rear-loading pins.

A beautiful thin pedal in many anodized colors to pimp your ride.



The HT AE05 flat pedal is one of HT’s premium offerings in the pedal department.

The aluminium platform measuring 100 x 96 x 17 mm dips to 12 millimetes at the axle, which makes for a 2.5 mm concave platform to seat your foot. E.g. a very grippy pedal, which is also one of the smaller on the market.

Deviating from industry standards, HT offers their proprietary EVO+ bearing setup, which is a single bushing and bearings seated between two races. It all spins on a chromoly axle.

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.
