Over its 18 years of production the V12 has become recognized as the benchmark for flat pedal performance. For 2014 DMR took their iconic V12 body design and redefined it. Here’s how it’s better than before: Larger platform area – The new V12 offers 10 percent more surface area than the classic shape. This means better grip and also support for rougher conditions and bigger hits. Lower profile – At just 16mm deep the DMR V12 Flat Mountain Bike Pedals are as slim as DMR could go whilst still retaining their legendary concave feel. Lighter weight – There is a 20 percent weight saving from the last V12 with the standard version weighing under 430g per pair and the Magnesium at just 350g.
