Another epic day on the Trans Savoie tested riders in classic ski terrain and along the slopes and steeps that rolled along under ominous peaks and ridges in the Three Valleys.

When Speedplay introduced their Drillium pedals way back when, they were considered a relatively light and svelte for the flat pedal market, but that was a decade ago and pedals have grown thinner and lighter in the interim. I’ve been waiting for Speedplay to bring some of the burl and innovative features of the Drillium to something lighter and a lot less chunky. Enter the Brass Knuckles.
