Video: Race Face Launches New Ride Pedal & Updates to Chester Pedal
@clumpster360: They come from the same molds. I've compared both, even cut them in half. They're the same pedal. I'm all for quality products, but marketing spin causes people to spend far more money than is necessary. Labels mean everything to some people. It's been studied to death. People will simply pay more for 'perceived' quality based on a logo. Slap a Gucci logo on a budget bag and people will spend hundreds more for it. Payless shoe company opened a store called Palessi and promoted cheap Payless shoes for $100s of dollars in a storefront modeled to look like a high end Italian brand, and people raved about the quality of the designs. They were $20 shoes. The Honda Accord in Europe was the Acura in the US. And more expensive. The product means nothing unless there's a logo to accompany it. I worked in marketing for 20 years. I've moderated focus groups. I know of what I speak. There's a reason marketing budges often outstrip production costs. The average consumer will buy what they 'think' is the best product based on the logo.

Or get a pair of Fooker pedals for $22. Same pedal. Different name.

Photo Epic: Drop the Hammer - Nove Mesto World Cup XC 2019
Whole new crop of women up front. A changing of the guard in action with some seriously skilled riders. When Yolanda Neff wins DH races at Windrock you can't dismiss the bike handling of XC racers. And I've never seen Nino look more human than when VDP dropped him like a hand grenade. That was power on a ludicrous level.
