In a sport driven by creativity and free thinking, we understand that different riders have vastly different needs and tastes. Part of what drives us as a BMX brand is to offer a diverse range of parts that caters to every need possible. Pedals are one of the most overlooked components on a bike.
One of the few parts which actually connects the rider to the bicycle, to most riders, having the perfect feeling pedal is somewhat of a necessity if they are to make the bike feel like theirs.
The Seeker Pedal was born out of the request from some of the guys on the team like Devon Smillie and Shane Weston who wanted a pedal with a larger platform than most, but with a slightly thinner profile.
By using regular unsealed bearings you are limited with how thin you can actually make the pedal body without the bearing becoming too small in size, and in return the axle getting thinner and weaker.
To combat this issue we decided to take the battle proven dual bearing and bushing system that we used in the legendary Surge alloy pedal, and apply it to a Nylon fiberglass body.
The end result is a pedal body that is not only thinner in profile than any of our other pedals, but also completely flat, without any kind of bump or raised section. Combined with a larger overall surface area, a dual concave design and a micro-knurled surface, this makes for one of our best feeling and most supportive pedals to date. A larger pedal gives the foot more support, especially on tricks where your feet come off (i.e. tailwhips) and also on hard landings, since the load is more spread out and evenly distributed.
Using twin sealed bearings and a bushing for extra support, the Seeker pedal’s design allowed us to enlarge the size of the axle and make it stronger than your typical unsealed pedal, and also much smoother and longer lasting.
The dual bearing design actually simplifies the construction of the pedal body and the axle, which allows you to easily remove and replace the pedal body after it’s been worn down after extended use.
