Crankbrothers has released a new long spindle version of it's award-winning Mallet E enduro pedals. The Mallet E LS features a 5mm longer spindle, delivering a wide 57mm q-factor vs. the 52mm q-factor of the standard Mallet E. The increased q-factor provides for greater shoe clearance, stability, and control.

“The Mallet E LS is a direct result of feedback from our customers and pro riders,” said Kellen Trachy, Crankbrothers Global Marketing Manager. “Though a majority prefer the standard 52mm q-factor of the Mallet E for it's maneuverability advantages in tight singletrack, a number of riders have asked for a wider version for increased shoe clearance and stability at speed. Now riders have the option to choose the model that meets their needs."
