Pinnd Launches UK-Made CS2 Pedal

Oct 6, 2021
by PINND  

Press Release: Pinnd

Pinnd are now shipping their first component, the CS2 flat mountain bike pedal, made in Scotland.

The brand attended the EWS at Innerleithen 1st-4th October to showcase their first product to enduro e-mtb/mtb riders.

With a long history of precision engineering in aerospace and medical, the brand decided to enter the bike components market when the pandemic affected their normal business back in 2020. Being precision engineers, Supermoto and e-mtb riders the motivation was to create a UK made product in-house under their control with a design that focuses on reliability and longevity.

Pinnd pedals (excluding bearings) are made in-house at their family owned factory and the CS2 pedal has been designed to specifically address the most common issues riders face. The pedal features an aluminium body shaped on a 5-axis CNC machine and titanium spindles as standard. The heavily machined body with a 9mm concave large footprint area hide the internals, which have been designed to keep the elements out and lubrication in.


By using a needle bearing on the inboard side working behind an oil shaft seal, the internals are set to perform longer than most. There is a 5 year warranty against manufacturing defects in place also - made possible by the in-house design and manufacture. The CS2 ships with Stainless Steel pins which feature a 4mm socket removal method and a tapered design for strength.

The CS2 is easily serviced at home in a matter of minutes and all parts are available after-market.

The CS2 comes in a black or natural anodised finish with laser etched branding and are priced at £195 inc VAT. Additional coloured alloy pins or natural finish titanium pins are available.

 "This is where your foot goes."

"Each pin is locally sourced from an organic pin farm."

"Five long years he wore these pedals up his ass. Then, he died of dysentery, gave me the pedals. I hid this uncomfortable hunk of metal up my ass two years. Then, after seven years, I was sent home to my family and now, little man, I give the pedals to you.

 Haha,

“This pin! Yes this bit right here is why the whole set up costs what it costs”………..

Love the beach seat slogan as well.

“Sit here while you’re not getting pinned”
The hand cleverly covers the rest of the slogan “we are however clowning your credit and bank cards, you’ve just been mugged! Have a nice day”.

 You could buy 4.875 pairs of V11s for that!

 To me it is way practical a plastic pedal. They always looks like the first day,little damage do not show at all. And the most important thing,they are way less aggressive with your legs in case of accidental strikes,less prone to have sharp edges.
  • 4 1
 I'd like to agree but somehow never fall lucky with nylon / plastic pedals - trashed Burgtec ones within 6 weeks and Nukeproof lasted circa 12 weeks - I had Hope F20's for 7 years and they still spin fine and have no play, I have however moved away from them due to boredom to Burgtec Penthouse Flat Mk5 - just as a treat for the bike, so far so good (still got my F20's locked away though just incase)

 @sewer-rat: I prefer plastic as well and liked the Butgtec, I got about a year out of mine. I have Kona Wah Wah plastic now. If you can deal with the bearing bulge at the crank arm, might want to check them out. I’m hopeful they’ll last longer since they only have bearings and don’t have bushings like Burgtec and others.
  • 2 1
 My Crank Bros ones listed all right but the grip was a lot worse than the metal Spanks I took off. The performance drop wasn’t worth the weight saving.
I’ve just replaced the bushings in my Spanks, which I have used on and off since 2014, and they are good as gold.

 @sewer-rat: I got the One Up pedals for less than 50€. Those are my first set of flat pedals so I have little experience or knowledge to compare to other flat pedals,only 1,5 years of use. I like more my old DH Mallets but my legs&knee do not like them right now.
Those plastic pedals looks like the first day,no hit marks everywhere and metal exposed,any of my old metal pedal looked terrible in a few rides.

 @millsr4: No, I should have been more clear. I was disappointed I only got a year out of the Burgtecs. I want pedals to last 5+ years and only have to worry about replacing pins. I think it’s inevitable that you’ll have to replace pins, so I want that to be cheap and easy to do. That’s another thing I like about plastic pedals, they just use common nuts and cap screws instead of special pins that are specific to the pedals. You can get a box of nuts and screws for just a few dollars so it comes out to a couple cents to replace pins.
  • 1 0
 @lj17: Pins are a design decision made by the company and not dependent on platform material type. My current Nukeproof Horizon pedals use standard screws but thread through the pedal body rather than a nut. Some people say a mangled screw can't be threaded out of a pedal body but I'd argue that is just as much of a concern with threading through a nut on the opposite side.

 Nylon pedals way to go, cheap, reliable, soft enough to not damage your leg, or not catapult you after rock strike

  • 1 0
 @millsr4: True, not all alloy pedals have bespoke pins, but a lot of them do. Most pins that I break just shear off completely, so I just unthread the remaining piece and can usually reuse the nut. Sometimes they do get mangled, and I’ve just used pliers to bend them more until they snap off, then unthread the remaining piece. Sometimes that can damage the threads in the nut, but I can just replace that. I’ve looked at the Horizon pedals, but I’ve come to prefer plastic so much that I never tried them.

 @lj17: To each their own but I'm just not a fan of the flex that comes from plastic pedals. I did side by side comparisons with the plastic version of the Horizon pedals and at 180lbs the flex was noticeable. I have also had more than one pair from more than one manufacturer wallow out the axle bore and render the pedal body useless.

 @nickmalysh: service kits are useless if the bore on the plastic pedal body is mangled...

 @millsr4: I know my opinion means nothing, the mistake you make is to think yours is any more valuable.

I ride DMR Vaults and V11s on mountain bikes (so not plastic) and placcy V6s on BMX, I've yet to slip a pedal on the V6s, find them comfy in Vans and my lad runs them very happily on his hardtail without slipping.

I've also found it's quite easy to buy your own pins and drill/screw them into any plastic pedal (within reason) and it works pretty well as a halfway house. The V11s are pretty sweet for the plastic with metal pins setup.

My meaningless opinion is £195 for pedals is for wankers. I've spent less on pedals for 4 bikes.
  • 3 1
 @Steventux: Your opinion only means nothing when you aren't comparing apples to apples. Plastic pins are shit for grip and so are vans... I never said $195 for pedals was reasonable, you can get a solid set of aluminum pedals for far less, but paying $50 for plastic pedals(with real pins) that go to shit in a year isn't reasonable for me... I guess for a kid or someone that doesn't stress their equipment they would be fine...
  • 1 0
 @millsr4: I’ve never noticed any flex with the Burgtec or Kona, and I haven’t tried the Horizon plastic. I weigh less than 180 lbs though, so I could see certain scenarios where plastic may not be the best choice.

 @Steventux: You can also ride a $200 bike from Walmart. Apples to oranges mate.
  • 5 3
 @sherbet: Ah I see, so because I wouldn't pay £195 for pedals I may as well ride pig iron. I still don't fully understand mountain biking but a lot of it seems to be about how much you pay for stuff, then convince yourself that the quality and therefore performance is so much better. Because you're worth it.

Maybe I should nip down the skatepark and tell all those BMXing fellows that they aren't paying enough for their pedals, that these pedals cost as much as their frames do, bound to impress them.

 @millsr4: did not broke any of nylon pedal in terms of nylon body over last 5 years riding bike park and smashing, yep bushings and bearing will die however quality nylon pedal last quite long (I'm not comparing to chap amazon shit from plastic)
  • 3 1
 @Steventux: Please quote where I said that. I'd suggest to compare the pedals to pedals with metal pins, such as Kona WahWahs, or OneUp Composites.

You're making strawmen to get mad at. There will always be a cheaper option. I could be running no name $10 plastic pedals. Point people are trying to get across to you is that plastic pin pedals are not good enough for the serious riding most of us do, especially when any moisture is present.

I own a pair of V6s. They're on my BMX. They're not MTB worthy pedals. Take the outrage elsewhere.
  • 2 1
 @Steventux: Huh, funny, just went to your profile.

Why aren't you running V6 pedals dude? You're literally on metal pin pedals while arguing they're not needed. Jesus.
  • 2 3
 @millsr4: I'd argue it means very little but perhaps my experience with 3 different bikes of my own plus my kids' bikes has some bearing on where I think value lies and whether plastic pedals are incomparable.

I get along just fine with plastic V11s on a hardtail. Plastic V6s on a BMX, which is my commuter and sees a fair bit of punishment on a daily commute in London (ie Pothole City) and on BMX tracks and alloy Vaults on the weekend warrior machine. I feel no difference between alloy Vaults and plastic V11s in terms of grip, they have both lasted years, and for the money the V6s are a really good pedal with a lot of grip, only been running them for 9 months but they are holding up well. That's my experience, not my opinion, I'm actually field testing here and to me plastic pedals seem to do the job just as well.

My opinion is that sure you can pay £195 for pedals, cos you're worth it, you work hard, it's a nice to treat yourself, but you really don't need to unless you are seriously looking for a performance edge or extraordinary durability (assuming you actually get this for £195). Most of us are riding bikes for fun, fitness etc and that sort of expense isn't actually worth it.

 For those saying those pedals are way expensive,a CB Mallet DH is close to 150 €,Hope F20 175€ . I hate talking about what is cheap or expensive,every single person has his own complex banking system in the head.
By the way those pedals looks very good.
  • 2 2
 @sherbet: Good detective work! Now read what I said about about owning Vaults and below about comparing them to V11s. That's an old bike but I kept those Vaults, as I said I don't feel any difference between V11s and Vaults.

At no point was I arguing you don't need metal pins but for the hard of reading:
Plastic pedals with metal pins (V11s in my case) work fine and grip compares to alloy Vaults.
I also find V6s with plastic pins work great for BMX, and my lad likes them a lot on his HT and doesn't slip.

 These aren't injection moulded nylon pedals.
These aren't extruded aluminium pedals (finished on a three axis CNC router).
These aren't cast aluminium pedals.

No. These are CNC machined on a five axis router from a solid chunk of aluminium. Not necessarily because it gets you a pedal that will help you ride so much better/longer than with any of the options mentioned above. Just because their market is so small that they'd rather not they'd rather not invest in product specific tools (molds, dies) nor in product specific prefabricates.

 Sounds pretty easy, why don't you give it a try? Seems like an interesting way to make a living: family business, machining and assembling your own design, and then hanging out with mountain bikers to sell it...

If it is just derivative crap, they'll fail and be out of business eventually anyway, and you can pat yourself on the back for being right about one thing. Or maybe they have something that enough people want, and they'll have carved out a little niche, doing something besides sitting behind a desk or on an assembly line working for peanuts while some suits get filthy rich.

I used to run superstars and thought they were good until I was Introducced to vaults. Night and day difference. I have vaults on all my bikes now
I've also had the nukeproof plastic pedals. Still not even close to been in the same league
  • 1 0
 @filryan: I went from vaults back to nylon pedals. I bought them for my “guest” bike on my farm. Tried them out before installing them and decided to switch all my bikes across to them. The vaults were my “last pedal I ever buy” having used dmr since the 90’s. I still love them but they’re currently on my gf’s bike.

The cheap Chinese scudgood pedals are amazing. Super strong and well designed. Really comfortable under my (size 13) feet. They survived the scariest moment I’ve had on a bike, when I (at 260lb) came up short on a road gap and landed flat from a decent height. I could barely walk the next day but everything on the bike survived with no damage. I looked at a few parts under the microscope to check for damage that wasn’t obvious and no cracks or signs of damage beyond normal cosmetic wear. I will rebuild the pedals soon as winter is almost over so I will put the whole axle under the scope then.

 @filryan: honestly I don’t have any complaints about vaults. I just like the cheap ones more. If they didn’t exist, I would be happily riding my vaults still.

 The engineering side of things looks great; UK manufacture, backed by a warranty etc. What I'm not sure on is the product design side? I use a pedal with a low profile, low weight and a large contact area (Kona Wah Wah 2) that fulfils my requirements - what's different about these pedals, why are they the shape they are?
  • 6 1
 But it's UK made, therefore you should flop your wallet out and straight up buy them no more questions asked.

I've been buying bike parts now long enough that my wife has given up asking and/or pretending to be surprised at how much things cost. We've just started buying "proper" bikes for the kids eg Islabike and they are starting to cost real money, but that said she would still go through the f'ing roof if I told her I spent that much money on a pair of flat pedals!

 The oddest thing about the pedal for me is how short the spindle is. It only extends about halfway across the body so any forces on the outside of the pedal will be unsupported and cantilever on the inside bearing. Doesn't seem like the best idea for long bearing life.
  • 3 0
 Maybe that's why they went with needle bearings inboard. BTW, there are many existing designs with not full length spindles, seems to be working good enough so far.

 I still feel the magic flatpealformula is still not discovered (or people are that different that there is just one formula for each person). My biggest problem with pedals is flipping them while pedaling on rough ground.

For me ingredients to this formula are:

- not thicker than 15mm
- slightly concave
- no smooth surface pins (just use screws)
- long not too long pins
- not too long (too long pedals make it easier to flip a pedal)

having said this, this pedal is basically unrideable for me.

 I'd like to know, perhaps from the results of a pink bike poll, how many riders are servicing their pedals? Having worked in bike shops my guess is very few people and that the majority are just buying new ones, which of course is wasteful. How many bike shops are offering/willing to service pedals?
  • 1 0
 Do people still not service the expensive ones? Or do most just see them as consumable as they look tatty quickly?
  • 2 0
 I can tell you at our shop we would service some Shimano and Look road pedals, thats it. It comes down to parts and time. It isn't that the any other pedals were more difficult, it simply isn't profitable to pull it apart, figure out where to order the parts, wait, and put it back together for any reasonable fee. If push came to shove, and we sold the pedal (we also sold time and One Up over the years) I would not tell a customer no because we stand behind what we sell. It hasn't come up yet.

 @zoobab2: Yeah, unfortunately it seems similar the other way around (e.g. looking at ordering a Commencal into the UK). That crap isn't good for anyone. But I'm guessing you'll have the same issue with Pinnd if/when they decide to ship outside the UK.

@justanotherusername you're right, but them being out of stock has no relevance to the price discussion. It's not like they're some vapourware. They were available before and it's fair to assume they'll be back. Lots of people use them and got them for around £100 with the Ti axle. Does where the axle is made really add £95 worth of value or production cost? I doubt the latter and as for the former, body machining and assembly is "UK-made enough" for me I guess.

BTW, I don't even have the Nanos, just used them as an example of something comparable (though I do have SS wheels). Personally, £45 Chesters do the job for me just fine with less bling but lighter weight. For alu I'd get £99 OneUps because of their shape. If someone wants to buy £195 pedals for reasons unrelated to how they feel under their feet, it's fine and more power to Pinned for their salesmanship. I just, like some others here, think it's a pretty lazy business idea.
  • 1 0
 @bananowy: If something isn’t available for an entire year, surely ‘vapourwear’ would be an accurate description?

Now I’m not bashing superstar pedals as I think they are great for the price but you have you see that a Taiwanese axle and imported 6000 series extrusion pedal body which is machined to final shape and assembled to a design that pretty much mimics the original HT Taiwanese model is very different to a ground up designed and made in the UK product at super low quantities and from higher grade materials all over.

Different markets, not that I think £200 is realistic for me for a pedal.

Will superstar pedals be as cheap when (if) they eventually re-surface? Who knows, but they are definitely a great value option.

  • 1 0
 Most pedals now use IGUS or similar bushings that are not designed to run covered in grease, the other end usually uses a sealed bearing so grease wouldnt penetrate the bearing, that coupled with decent sealing and where would you expect the old grease to go when being pumped in - What would all of the new grease mixed with the old gritty grease do?

Its pretty easy to loosen an end-cap and nut, slide the body out, clean and de-grease, light grease coating and back together on a quality pedal.

They’re not very expensive, although an order of magnitude more expensive than other o rings and gaskets commonly used. However it’s needed because needle rollers are very reliant on the shaft being perfect for smooth operation. A long term test of these would be very welcome.

 The Burgtecs I had used an oil seal too and I believe the Pembree do too.

 Great....another expensive thick pedal. The only clever thing here is the name.

 I won't whine about the price as there is already an army for that, but to me the pedal looks small and too thick for my liking. Good look to Pinnd though as they are chasing their dreams.

 I’m just gonna go ahead and say, nobody is forcing any of you to purchase these pedals. At the same time the time comparison of what pedal you all rode for how long you all bought some time ago blah blah blah, is somewhat irrelevant. There are too many variables, like riding style, body weight, discipline of riding, conditions you ride in, and the amount you ride. There are other minor variables that play a roll, but ultimately a pedal is a pedal, and you should choose the right one for you. You don’t wanna buy an expensive pedal, and your cool with plastic? Awesome!! Buy a plastic pedal, you want a premium magnesium pedal with a TI spindle, dope buy that (just follow the weight restrictions). I agree that in my opinion there are pedals that are superior to others, but I’ve also been running the same type of pedal for quite some time, and the timeline a set lasts before I gotta replace them based off of my own personal standards is inconsistent. Just remember, nobody’s got a gun to you heads, if you don’t like it.... don’t buy it. If you do? Awesome! Now you have another option! Diversity in design people. It’s the evolution of innovation. Simple! Embrace it!

 I’ve been riding these pedals, I can’t say the weight or profile is an issue, but I’m not here to win world cups.
