Jerome will be a key athlete to ride on HT Components new T1 Pedals. The unique proprietary clipless pedals are the first trail/enduro pedals released by HT Components. Weighing in at 328g/per pair (titanium) and 368g/per pair (chromoly), the new T1 is mud resistant and easy to engage/disengage with its unique adjustable dual tension settings. T1 will be available at the 2015 EuroBike show in Friedrichshafen, Germany on August 24-26.


Jerome is one of the top Enduro racers in the world and is a great match for HT Components. He brings with him an impressive winning streak and represents the spirit of Enduro that HT Components admires,” stated TC Yang, General Manager of HT Components. “As our world gets smaller and smaller, it’s important we continue to look beyond all borders and find the best of the best. Jerome embodies the qualities we want to align with; he is world class.”

HT (Hsing Ta), the high-end pedal brand of HTI was created in 2005 to meet increasing market needs. This important milestone allowed the company to introduce a variety of new designs to fulfill personalization and technology trends. Today, HT concentrates on developing the best performance bicycle components to allow top athletes to push their limits and amateurs feel like a pro.

 HT= worst product support ever. But I suppose they will throw him a new set of pedals every three days when they slop around with their crap bushings. Love the platforms, but they are only as good as their worst part.

 Worst pedal on the market....sometimes you can't clip and sometimes its worst you can't unclip

 Yeah i found this out the hard way. Took my pedals back for a refund nearly a month ago because after crash number 4 i had to take my shoe off while it was still clipped to the pedal and unclip the shoe by hand. Ht say there is nothing wrong with them. Had to spend 50 euros on some cheap shimanos in morzine so i could carry on riding.

 woaw, it completly changed my life ....

seriously, it's not going to change anything for Clementz.... It's like saying "Aaron gwin joins Lizard Skins" or "Danny Hart signs with Selle Italia" ... --> "who cares"

BUT nice video anyway!!

 Kinda agree. I always think the best advert for a component is when a top pro decides to use it even though they actually have to pay money for it.

The fact that Sam Hill (probably my favorite rider and therefore the one I should be most susceptible to sponsorship influence from) currently gets paid to run nukeproof bars doesn't really affect my views on the quality of the product. The fact that Schwalbe Magic Mary is the most blacked out logo in the wc pits on the other hand...

 That's true to some extent andIi agree with you regarding the fact that riders are using blacked out Schwalbe's etc as knowledge of them being a superior product. but on the other hand, the fact that Sam Hill CAN use nukeproof bars and they hold up to his level of abuse does give me a certain level of confidence in the product he's using, regardless of whether it would be his first choice if sponsorship wasnt an issue.

 For me there is only one brand worth buying when it comes to clipless pedals, shimano. My PD-M530's were cheap and after two years of hard use they are still going strong.
