Brompton Superlight Quick Release Pedals

I have been using clipped in pedal on all of my Brompton bicycles for a few years now. Over the past few months I have been using my Brompton in situations where I do not really want to wear clipped in SPD shoes and would rather just wear, whatever I had on my feet at the time. There is another reason for this but that's for another time perhaps. Not wanting to go back to the standard Brompton pedals where one folds, I decided to give their new version a go. I am very glad that I did!

The new pedals to give them their correct title, Brompton Superlight Quick Release Pedals come in a small box with all the bit and pieces you need to fit them

The pedals themselves are rather lovey and in addition to the four reflectors (very useful for us night riding types) they are in an almost bead blasted black. Everything speaks quality, with the pedals spinning freely. 

Another really good thing about these pedals is that on the bike they are identical. This one one of the things I didn't like about the standard Brompton pedals. 

The pedals are small and compact but on pretty much all the shoes and trainers I have used so far, I have not had any issues with grip. The wonderful thing about these pedals is of course that one of them has a quick release allowing you to happily stow it away in a little bracket fixed to the outside of the front brake. The little magnet that holds it in place is quite strong. 

These pedals come with T Line and now with the P Line. The weight saving is only just over 100g but this is not why I bought them. I will almost certainly get a pair of cycling specific non-SPB shoes for those longer riders but as I have said, they have been comfortable with just about everything I have worn. I really do like these pedals a great deal and can see them a permanent fixture from now on. For me worth every penny.
