Sixpack Vertic Trail – Clipless Pedal Evolution Instead of Revolution

Pedals are an important point of contact between the biker and the bike, so you do not want to make any compromises there. Sixpack is known for high-quality flat pedals, but the clipless pedal rider’s large fan base will now also be attended to with high-end pedals from Sixpack. And Sixpack scores points immediately here as well with a sophisticated design:

  • An open pedal body for excellent self-cleaning
  • A fixed stand with two pins on the front side
  • Flattened design for easy engaging
  • One of the lightest trail clipless pedals thanks to the weight-optimized design (354 g)

The Vertic Trail pedal was designed for trail, all-mountain, and enduro use. It has a very defined freedom of movement of 8° (+/- 4° from the neutral position) and a large contact surface for perfect control. The release force can be easily adjusted thanks to a scale. The binding mechanism is SPD®-compatible and has been tested and optimized for many pedal shoe combinations.

Another special feature of the Vertic Trail pedal is the selectable Q-factor (distance from the center of the pedal to the thread) of 52.5 mm of 58.5 mm. A larger Q-factor provides more space so you don’t, for example, rub the beautiful paint on the chainstays and also provides advantages in curves thanks to the wider frame. However, the Q-factor should match your own anatomy to prevent knee pain.

Sixpack can draw on many years of expertise when it comes to the pedal body and bearing. The main goals were durability and reliability, along with a low weight. That is why only high-quality materials and components are used. The pedal body is made from 6061T6 CNC-milled aluminum. Hardened coated CrMo steel is used for the axles and the bearing consists of a sealed industrial bearings and IGUS bushings.
