Shimano introduces first ever DXR BMX-specific SPD pedal
Expanding its leadership and product offering in performance bicycle pedals, Shimano introduces its first ever BMX-specific SPD pedal that is tuned specifically for racing. Following in the footsteps of the winning DXR component line, the new PD-MX70 pedals have been tested and raced at every level from the local start gate to the Olympic track. Factoring in the high pedaling forces of BMX racing, the new PD-MX70’s feature a dedicated high-retention mechanism that prevents unclipping under extreme upward pedaling force as well as a narrow, 9-degree release angle and 2-degree free float for a more fixed and stable feeling.
Combining a special functional component from Shimano’s Click’R pedal binding with a standard tension spring, the new MX70 BMX pedals prevent unintended pre-release of the cleat under strong pedaling power. In addition, a wide pedal-to-shoe contact area enhances support and grip while a lower platform height increases pedaling efficiency. The new PD-MX70 pedals also feature an integrated cage that improves stability and control when not clipped in and protects the binding mechanism against impacts.
