Test

This time, however, it’s the turn of their pedals; a component that will, without doubt, give us a lot to talk about, both in terms of its quality and its design. Juan Carlos Parente is the man behind the project, and he has given us what are probably the best pedals on the market. After months of design and testing, a product that has been nurtured, rather than developed, finally sees the light of day, and we were lucky enough to be chosen to receive one of the ten pairs that were sent out for testing.

There are a lot of things that could be said about these pedals but there is one thing that doubtlessly stands out from the rest, and that’s the quality. We’ve been testing them for several months and even now there appear to be no signs of deterioration neither in their structure nor in their bearings. JPEG - 3 Mb Each pedal weighs a mere 160 grams and was manufactured by Wellgo, a guarantee of reliability and quality. This quality can be seen in the rubber washers that protect the bearings and prevent grit from getting stuck inside them. Without a doubt, quality and commitment are two promises that a brand like Chorillas wants to offer. The pedals are finished in black and have several holes in the cage to make them lighter.

The structure of the pedals was designed after having studied all of the other pedals on the market and determined their faults in order to create the perfect end product with a skeleton that protects itself against breakages. At the same time, the centre of the pedal is much thicker than those of the other pedals on the market which gives the whole pedal a much higher durability.

Another strong point is the teeth of the pedal cage. For these pedals they have opted for some fearsome teeth that keep your feet completely locked to the pedals. The grip is phenomenal, but could do with wearing shin pads in case your foot does slip off the pedal. There is little else wrong with these pedals which, in our opinion, will become a benchmark product thanks to the clever design and, above all, very high quality finish.

In terms of their ideal use, we’ve tested these pedals in all conditions and on all kinds of terrain. They are a true marvel on natural; the grip is incredible and no dirt or water gets under your foot whatsoever. If you ride to BIU rules, using your pedal for grip, you will stay balanced on any obstacle with no problems. They have shown themselves to be very hardy for street riding as well, demonstrating the same amazing grip and standing up to plenty of impacts on all kinds of urban obstacles.

Conclusion

In conclusion, if you like cage pedals this is one of the best available, standing above practically all the others in terms of efficiency and durability. They are available in all shops that deal in Chorillas products.
