Crankbrothers Expands Stamp Flat Pedal Lineup

Aug 22, 2017
by Mike Kazimer  
Crankbrothers

Crankbrothers are expanding their Stamp pedal line, adding in three new options that run the gamut from the ultra-high end Stamp 11 down to the die-cast aluminum Stamp 2. Like the original Stamp pedals, the new additions will be available in two different platform widths to accommodate feet of all sizes.

Stamp 3 & 2

The new Stamp 3 and Stamp 2 pedals share the same platform dimensions – they're both 16mm thick, and measure 100 x 100mm for the small size, and 114 x 111mm for the larger option. It's the way that platform is constructed that differentiates the two models – the Stamp 3 has a forged aluminum body, while the Stamp 2 has a die-cast aluminum body. The body isn't concave, but the four central pins are threaded in a little further than the six outer pins to create a more secure feel underfoot.

Crankbrothers
The lower pins in the center are meant to create a more concave platform underfoot.

The Stamp 2 pedals are available in black, red, or raw.

What's inside? The new pedals have the same internals as Crankbrothers' Mallet pedals – there's an Enduro cartridge bearing on the outboard part of the spindle, and an igus bushing on the inboard portion. The combination of a double-lip internal seal and a new external seal is intended to help keep the pedals spinning smoothly even after wet, muddy rides.

The Stamp 3 pedals weigh in at 455g and retail for $99.99 and are available in blue, black, and a silver Danny MacAskill pro model. The Stamp 2 pedals are a little heavier than the Stamp 3, but they're also a little cheaper, checking in at a claimed 470g with a price tag of $79.99 USD. Both models come with a 5-year warranty.

Stamp 11

Crankbrothers already have a Candy 11, Mallet E 11, and an Eggbeater 11, so it only made sense to create an ultra-high-end version of the Stamp pedal as well. The Stamp 11 has the same dimensions as the original Stamp 7, measuring 13mm thick on the leading and trailing side, and 11mm in the middle. The Stamp 11 gets a titanium spindle, gold anodized pins, and $300 price tag that will likely put them out of reach for all but the most dedicated flat pedal fanatics.

 If pedals cost you so much to make you HAVE to charge $300, you're doing something wrong.
If, as i suspect, these do not cost much more to make make than any other flat pedals, even with a titanium axle (Titanium isn't THAT expensive to buy and machine), then this is all pure mark up and Crank Bros can f*ck completely off. $300 for some flat pedals! you dumb c*nts.

 Hahaha!

Good points though. How are these not insanely over priced? Maybe this company just gets away with making their stuff more expensive then it should be. They have a price point to live up to.

 They're in denial and still think they're a boutique brand that can charge those kind of prices. Reality is they're a joke in the cycling community. Kind of like Ellsworth except I've been impressed with Ellsworth lately so now CB is the new Ellsworth.

 Of course. It's all marketing. Yes development costs are there as well but how hrs can it be to develop a flat pedal. It's not like they just reinvented it. I paid 120€ for my DMR Vault Brendogs and already thought that would be a little much for a pair of pedals
  • + 5
 Vaults FTW!! Great grippy pedals. However, Vault Superlights retail for £220/$280...just saying

The thing I don't like with these new CB pedals are the pins don't appear to be accessible from the bottom side. Can be a PITA.

 But... But it has 'kashima' pins to match your dropper post and suspension! This would be the ultimate set of dentist pedals if it wasn't for the fact they all ride clipped in because of the 'performamce benefits'/lack of riding ability.

Why on earth they wasted time, resources and money anodising the pins is ludicrous, they will still snap off on a rock just the same as any other.

 How about you guys read the article first and then think about commenting.
The 300$ pedal is obviously extremly expensive but its the all out option for the "most dedicated flat pedal fanatics". As it says in the article.
Every major pedal manufacturer has an over the top option, like the dmr Vault superlight (it even has a similar finish)
The cheapest option here costs a competitive 80$. Whats wrong with that?
please read first and then comment.

 Yeah, $300 for pedals! Outf*ckingrageous! If only they produced good pedals for like, oh I don't know, eighty bucks or something. Oh wait...

Quit yer bitchin' about a product you're never going to buy, and enjoy the fact that there's a "Ferrari" option for any component on your bike.

p.s. If I could justify those $300 flats, you're goddamn right I'd rock them! Instead, I'll go enjoy a ride on my $45 plastic Chesters that work a treat.

 The Straitline with Titanium axle cost 100 USD less and the internals are more simple and easy to maintain, so for flat pedals Crank Brothers is out of the group. For me some Crank Brothers are good and others are total waste of money, is like Apple to Android or Windows, if you want something fancy in some items go for it, if not stay in the others more reliable and trusty.
  • + 8
 @ultralord: All I can say: If the stamps 11 are working at least well like last years stamps which I got for free from CB last year, they worth it. I have them one year and never ridden so grippy and good pedals. The titanium spindle is a good move, bcs I bent the spindle when I catched with them a stump hidden in a high grass in speed like 30 kph. I would recommend the bigger platform for 5.10 shoes size 42 and higher.
Good pedals, but not affordable for us. I would not buy them for 300 bucks, I will be only remembering how good the rode.

  • + 8
 I don't understand what's all the fuss about, they are offering 80$ pedals as well.
Not like I'd ever buy either since they have no redeeming features, are just cast and on top of that have a reputation for short lived bearings.
Basic stuff like M520 is bulletproof compared to CB.

 Have to agree. These may be grippy, but so is almost any pedal if you put longer pins on. Also, the "cheap" ones are outrageously heavy. My Wellgos were about 40 quid, weigh considerably less with no fancy materials and have lasted for years despite being treated like shit. And I would be shocked if the ti axle made that much of a difference in weight. Total chancers. The enve rims of the flat pedal game.
They'll do well.

 Thanks for the comments. As with the “Ask Us Anything”, we’re grateful for the opportunity to have direct communication with the mountain bike community. As product manager of Crankbrothers, I’d like to explain this product range; the main goal of the new Stamp Collection is to offer the same performance, durability, and sizing options as the Stamp 7 and make it accessible to a larger number of riders. For this reason we developed the Stamp 2 at $79 and the Stamp 3 at $99, furthermore we decided to decrease the retail price of our 5050 pedal from $69 to $59. Yes, we introduced the Stamp 11 for those riders that desire the premium option, while developing a broad range of flat pedals from $59-$150. // Andy

 @crankbrothers - I think what pisses everyone off so much is that the Black and Gold Stamp 11 is the color everyone wants but you are throwing in Ti axles and charging $300, nobody wants to pay that. You could fix it by offering the Black and Gold look with Chromo axles and charging half the money. You would sell about 1000% more pedals this way. Hope that helps Smile

 The Black and Gold ones look cool when new but the straight up Silver ones are the best choice in the long run. The black will just get scraped off the Stamp 11's regardless. Ironically, they probably should have saved the Silver color for the Stamp 11.

 I've tried so many different pedal and shoe combos over the years, currently running $15 kart shoes and $25 nylon pedals off ebay due to budget constraints... The grip/repositioning balance is perfect and the pedals weigh far less than alloy ones and don't have those stupid pins on the inside that my feet never touch.

 I've got no problem with expensive pedals, but what I'd be concerned with is cast aluminum, which is not ideal for this application, and has a tendency for porosity, unrefined grain structure, large grain structure, and is significantly weaker than it's forged counterpart. Not sure who ok'd that decision.
  • + 1
 Only the lowest end version is cast, the other two are forged.
  • + 1
 @thejames: I can see that, still, $80usd (100 up here) for a cast aluminum pedal is pretty questionable (casting is cheap). Are there grain refiners (master alloys) in their process? Without grain refiners used for most commercial casting processes, the grain exhibits coarse columnar and coarse equiaxed structures. Is there oxidization control? Is hydrogen eliminated via fluxing? Never been a fan of cast pedals. You can cast then forge them, which increases strength, or you can add processes to reduce hydrogen porosity, grain size, etc.

Forged is significantly better. But I guess you have a point, for groms $80 for this vs some plastic pedals is a good idea. I had a pair of V8's I destroyed by hitting a rock so I'll stay off em.

 @Scoutty: If you read the PB review, they told that it tends to strip. I guess @Woododo: meant this. Hex or torx would be a great alternative. You don't want to strip that one...

 Agree. How on earth they can justify the cost of these at $300 is madness.

 Burgtec make a superb flat pedal. Alternatively, I've just bought a pair of Easton Flatboys for £30 off the CRC clearance section. Granted they're a bit weighty but crikey they're grippy.

 The only crap thing about burgtecs are the axle length - they just sit too close to the crank arm and its annoying as hell for me - If they put 5mm on the offset they would get top marks.

 @Racer951: that's true but it's personal preference. Moving from saints to mk4s for me was all the better for the lack of flex in the narrower pedal.
  • - 2
 @nickkk: I would imagine any difference you could actually feel in flex would be due to actual design of the body / peal itself, not small differences in pedal offset, if you could actually feel any difference that is. You would really have to be a monster to flex a pedal to the point where you can feel differences between two sturdy pairs like the Saint and Burgtec.

Burgtec didnt design the pedal with a low offset for stiffness, I am sure I heard it was for ground clearance as it was primarily designed as a trail / enduro pedal while their previous pedals were pretty much designed for DH.

 @Racer951: well we'll have to agree to disagree there- seeing as I am the one with the direct experience of the two set ups mentioned here. Correct me if that isn't the case and you have used both. The two pedals are worlds apart. I am in no way a monster on a bike, but tend to weight my pedals on the outside. Whilst it is correct the Q factor was brought inward to aid clearance (which i have found to be true although slight) there is a difference perceptible by myself. This stiffness has also been remarked upon by others too. The MK4 pedal body sits around 15mm closer to the crank than the Saint- there is a difference in stiffness because of this.

Whether this is mechanical in nature (I would agree it's unlikely to be true 'flexing' of the pedal) or a combination of improved ergonomics and feel is the debate. I'm certainly feeling less movement, and however that is achieved is for me irrelevant. They give me greater confidence if nothing else.

 @nickkk: all in the mind, unless you are something to do with Burgtec of course and want to make a marketing case for something nobody else anywhere, ever, has ever cared to think about.

 @Racer951: lol wtf? Calm down turbo. It's pedals. We have different opinions. It's pinkbike. End of story. 'Making a case' for the stiffness of pedals is not unreasonable- try reading some of the many reviews for the Mk 4. Claiming something is 'all in the mind' is cute but not relevant here.

 @nickkk: hey fanboy, your the one that sounds a bit worked up. You know what you need to do? Go watch some sick jibs and have a calm down, maybe get some rest and have a few more dreams of you bending those axles with your mighty pedal stroke - that's cute.

 Vault. End of.

 Well, I currently have a set of Vaults on one of my bikes, and Stamps on the other, and I have come to prefer the thinner shape of the Stamp pedal. And it is slightly bigger and at least as grippy as the Vault.
