Must Watch: Brage Vestavik Doing Brage Things On His New Burgtec Pedals

Jul 10, 2024

PRESS RELEASE: Burgtec

BRAGE X BURGTEC | PENTHOUSE MK5 JUST A LITTLE MORE FREERIDE

Making flat pedals is our absolute favourite. It was the first product Burgtec ever made over 20 years ago and where the love started. The Brage Pedal was a new challenge, because we thought we knew everything, as it turns out you can always learn more.

The way Brage rides pushed us to think about the product in new ways and how we could fine tune it just a little to give him everything he was looking for. The Freeride unicorn.

Size or weight was unimportant, it didn't matter how those numbers stacked up he just needed the right tool for the job. Strength, grip and longevity were the only points on the agenda, and we understood the mission.

BRAGE'S PERFECT PEDAL - OUR PENTHOUSE MK5 FLAT BUT BIGGER & BURLIER

Brage’s a man who knows what he wants; 2 meetings, 2 sketches, 1 prototype, a tiny bit of tuning, and bam, enter the new MK5 B-Rage Edition.

Brage loved the width and q-factor of the original MK5 and insisted we keep the same dimensions, thus not to get hung up or snagged on trail side debris.

The B-Rage Edition adds an extra 12mm of length front to back. This gives us a stomping 112mm x 102mm platform guaranteeing support for the biggest of hits.

Centre pins weren't something we'd done since the OG Penthouse MK1 20 years ago. Brage felt this larger platform needed extra support in the middle. So we added a pad with 3 extra pins for even more grip. The more force you put through the pedal the more grip you're rewarded with. No limitations. 55ft Jah Drop approved.

Internally the pedal is configured in the exact same way as the MK5. So mud and water ingress are kept at bay while grease is kept in. Longevity is the cornerstone of all the products we make and the MK5 B-Rage Edition keeps that tradition alive so that service intervals don't interrupt the send.

 If Brage had a signature headset cable routing platform with proprietary suspension, I'd probably buy it.

 Scooted the chair closer to the screen when I saw there was not one, but two, world class bicycle hooligans.

Would tune in 100% for a dedicated Rat Brage collaboration.

 Inb4 "do we need more flat pedal" comments

These look fantastic and actually offer something a bit different with that massive length. If I wasn't broke and needed new flats for enduro or downhill these would be top dawgs

 Agreed, this is something new and I'm here for it. Other long pedals are wider: Chromag Dagga, Deity Supervillain, Sensus Crue, Kona Wahwah2, and Giant Pinner come to mind. This shape should offer a unique combination of support and clearance, and at >500g should be incredibly strong. I like that even though my own preference is for wider pedals.

 I splurged on a set of the penthouse mk4s and the grip was dismal. The finish quality of the machining was poor as well, including big chunks of metal left in the female hex on the axles, and rough threads.

 @Vikingdude: my penthouse MK5s were beautifully made and had good grip. Sold them after I got Daggas because of the longer platform (width wasn't a problem for me on the MK5) and for even more grip.

 PB comment section - Nothing to see here, just some new flat pedals.
Um... Did you guys not see Brage riding his bike ?

 Anything from Brage, Blur or Burgtec is the bollocks. And this was no exception

 I roll often listening to doom metal and in my mind I ride just like Brage. ☠

 After listening to the Brake Orchestra, I believe the world needs a Brage brake.

 Saw these before I saw the video release and the B-Rage hadn't clicked. Brage is obviously abundantly awesome but at least the MK5 originals look better value now!

 Neat, I wonder if those pins being in the center make foot repositioning easier?

 Any product that can last through one Brage session without breaking would probably last me my entire life.

 does anyone know if these pedals are concave or just flat? tried looking on the site but no word.
  • 1 0
 They're still concave. But the central pin platform and longer pedal platform will both make them feel a little less concave than standard Burgtecs. So go with those if you want a more concave feel and aren't doing Brage tings on em.

 170 euros for a pedal...

 I'm trying to create a French made components brand, and I could not sell the pedals under 200€ because it's so expensive to manufacture here. Actually, if you look at other brands (Deity Tmacs, Supervillains or Hope F22 for example) the BxB ones are in the price range.

 @SendyMcGnar: Fair enough if you are not having them made in the far east but are Burgtecs made in Europe?
