 "6061 billet T6 aluminum"

Great (shitty) buzzword usage (bastardization).

Sticking " billet" in the middle of the alloy\heat-treatment description tells me that maybe someone cares more about getting key words into the copy than actually representing what it's made of.

 I mean billet just means it's carved from a block rather than cast. More solid or less chance of hair fractures/voids in the final part? Idk, maybe?

More expensive to make as a manufacturer and purchase as a customer? Yes. $200 for pedals that will get marred and chunked by rocks seems like a lot to guy that has never purchased a new bike, only used. But most days on this site I am reminded I am really too poor to afford this sport, ha.

 @MorbidlyObeseKoala: "I mean billet just means it's carved from a block rather than cast."

Kind of. A "billet" is just a raw material form factor: the small to medium size block that the end product is created from. It still needs processing, whether that's metling down to be cast, or machined (hand or CNC), or forged.

"Billet" has kind come to mean "one-piece [CNC] machined", so usage like "billet engine block" is sort of OK, although technically only semi-correct: "one-piece machined engine block" would be more accurate. But sticking "billet" between the alloy name (6061) and the heat-treatment (T6) is just silly.

 Billets can be made to align the grain structure to account for any forging process. It is not a buzzword so much as a manufacturing technique, although marketing can run with it. 6061-t6 aluminum and a grain structure aligned 6000 series aluminum are different, and yield different ultimate strengths and fatigue life. In the MTB industry, that isn't really necessary to be honest.

*Edit, I could see how this could be really beneficial for aluminum crank arms but not pedals.

 These forgeries cast a wide net from their billets. Oh, puck it

 And bragging about 6061...
Might as well say "garden variety chunk of aluminum"

I can see bragging about 7075, but 6061 is.....

 These are beautiful pedals. @YoshimuraCycling, you mention having the pedal be closer to the spindle for easier pedaling. What about people like me with stupid-wide, fat feet? Did any of your test riders have monster feet that could rub the crank?

 Or worse, smacking the chainstay with inside of ankle. I don’t get it, with 148-157 rear ends narrow is not fun.
  • 1 0
 Yah I can never find pedals big enough.
  • 3 1
 I legit thought these were an April Fools joke when they released them. Maybe not the best idea for a famous non-bike company to announce a random mountain bike product on April 1st. I am glad they actually exist, though!

 If I win can I get the small version for my kiddo? He has worn out the bearings in his current pedals. And his favorite colour is GOLD.

I ride clipped in so , not for daddy.
