Crankbrothers Starts a Stamp Collection

The California brand expands its Stamp flat pedal lineup

Crankbrothers must be doing well with its Stamp flat pedals, because the company just announced that it’ll be expanding the line from one to four models, including a signature Danny MacAskill set, pictured above. Like the originals, all Stamp models are made in two sizes–small for feet smaller than size 10 (43), and large for bigger hooves.

 

Size matters: Crankbrothers makes all of its Stamp pedals in two sizes to suit small and large feet.

 

Crankbrothers Stamp 2 and 3 | $80 and $100

The Stamp 2 and 3 both use an outboard Enduro bearing and inboard Igus glide bearing (think bushing) and are sealed by a double lip internal seal as well as an external seal. Both also feature a flat 16-millimter-thick profile, whereas the Stamp 7 and Stamp 11 have a concave 11-13-millimeter profile. The Stamp 2 and 3 differ in that the entry-level 2 is die-cast aluminum whereas the 3 is forged, making it stronger and lighter. The Danny MacAskill signature pedals are Stamp 3s, and they’re offered in both sizes for the same price of $100.

Here are some other highlights:

  • Dimensions: Small – 100 x 100 millimeters; Large – 111 x 114 millimeters
  • 10 pins per side, with adjustable height
  • 16 millimeter profile
  • CroMo spindle
  • 5 year warranty
  • Colors: Black, Blue, Red, Raw

 

Stamp 2 size small | Weight: 415 grams | Weight for large: 470 grams

 

Stamp 3 size large | Weight: 455 grams | Weight for small: 399 grams

 

Crankbrothers Stamp 7 and 11 | $150 and $300

Crankbrother’s existing Stamp pedal becomes the Stamp 7. The 7 and 11, being much slimmer than the 2 and 3, use outboard Igus glide bearings (bushings) in place of the Enduro bearing used on the Stamp 2 and 3, and there’s just a single, external seal. At just 11 millimeters thick at the center and 13 millimeters at the edges, the Stamp is a very sleek pedal. Plus, the 1 millimeter of concavity on each side arguably cradles the foot much better than a flat surface does, although this comes down to rider preference as well. Danny MacAskill seems to hook up just fine on his flat signature series Stamp 3 pedals. But back to the 7s and 11s–the Stamp 7 features a good old chromoly spindle, whereas for a mere $150 more, you could either get another set of 7s, or snatch up a set of titanium-spindled Stamp 11s.

Here are the CliffsNotes:

  • Dimensions: Small – 100 x 100 millimeters; Large – 111 x 114 millimeters
  • 10 pins per side, with adjustable height
  • Slim 11-13-millimter profile
  • Concave platform – 1 millimeter of concavity
  • 5 year warranty
  • Stamp 7 colors: Black, Red
  • Stamp 11 color: Black/Gold
