It has been a long time coming and we are excited to debut the latest DEITY pedal: the DEFTRAP! With a true concave profile that your feet sink into, our signature non-offset symmetrical design to offer more stability behind the spindle, 8 cr-mo pins and 2 nylon pins per side, and a massive functional footprint…the DEFTRAP is in a league of its own and dead set on becoming the best feeling nylon pedal on the market.
Riders are passionate about our pedals, so when we decided to dive into a new top tier nylon pedal model, we knew we had to exceed their expectations. Oftentimes nylon pedals are treated as an affordable afterthought by brands, but we wanted the DEFTRAP to leave an emotional response. By offering a “feel” that would rival the highest end pedals in the world and using the best nylon glass fiber materials available, the DEFTRAP is a cost effective pedal that could thrive performance-wise in a World Cup setting, but also be perfect for someone who simply commutes daily to work. It really is a special feeling pedal and anyone who loves the TMAC will understand what we mean.
“Not all nylon materials are created the same though. Did you know that in the pedal manufacturing game there are two qualities of nylon fiber used for pedals? One is widely used and is the standard in this industry due to its cost-effective price and ease of access. However, there is another nylon fiber material available that is substantially more expensive, harder to acquire, and is approximately 28% stronger against impacts and even stronger than that when faced with dramatic weather ranges. This material is used in high load industries and in equipment that experiences extreme forces, high heat ranges, and bitter cold temperatures. It is vastly superior and the clear winner for us during the development and production of the DEFTRAP Pedal.” Eric Davies (Owner / Designer)
“It was fun designing the DEFTRAP with the goal to pour everything into it and try to make something special. It looks simple, it appears minimalistic, it is definitely in the opposite direction of other nylon pedals on the market, but it feels insanely good underfoot. With a focus on feel, durability, and quality, we treated it like a $150 pedal so we could give riders something special. From the concave profile to our non-offset symmetrical stance and size, literally every person who has ridden on a pair has loved them and we cannot wait for the rest of the world to put their feet on a set!” Eric Davies (Owner / Designer)
