At 432g, the DMR Vaults are middle-of-the-road when it comes to weight, but there is nothing middle-of-the-road about their performance. The deep concave shape and eleven sharp pins per side provide tenacious grip that strikes fear into the soles of flat pedal shoes. Wider at the front than the back, the pedal offers outstanding levels of grip, even when the terrain is super rowdy.
The huge 105mm x 115mm platforms provide excellent feel on technical descents, and the open body allows for easy mud clearance. The reversible pins can be fitted either way to tune grip levels, from long and sharp to short and rounded. The pedals are installed with a 6mm Allen key to reduce the chance of over-tightening, and the sealing bearing at the outside and DU bushing have worked flawlessly despite some heavy wet-weather abuse.
Regreasing is simply a matter of removing a 6mm dust cap, squirting in some grease, and then heading off to shred. The extruded 6061 aluminium body screams quality, and when it comes to secure footing, the pedals are second to none. The DMR Vaults were the most popular pedal in the test and were always the first to be checked out for testing – taking our Best in Test with ease.
+ Perfect balance of grip
+ Excellent durability
“SHAPE, DEPTH AND PIN PLACEMENT ARE THE QUALITIES THAT MAKE THE VAULT PEDAL A WINNER AND A FAVOURITE ON MANY OF OUR PERSONAL BIKES HERE AT DIRT”
The DMR Vault Pedals have been around a good few seasons now and are a very common site on the bikes of the committed flat pedal rider; in fact we know a good few who won’t use anything else. DMR have been tweaking their range of pedals over the years, with many brands still playing catch up and were one of the few to get the slimmer, lower profile design spot on first time with the Vault.
Shape, depth and pin placement are the qualities that make this pedal a winner. The 6061 aluminium platform is a great length and width combo, the profile is also ‘just right’ with a 17mm concave footbed. Eleven adjustable pins give tuneable traction, whatever your tastes and shoe choice. Flip them to fine-tune grip. These pins are not the toughest (replacement kits are readily available) but their placement is perfect; these pedals have been designed by riders who spend all their riding time on flats, not just some of their time.
The Vaults come in a range of models from the standard popular model (in a huge range of colours) to the signature Brendog and Lacondeguy models.
Superb pedals for downhill, trail, or enduro use. Just take a look at our personal bikes here at Dirt; they’re a favourite choice…
'These are the ultimate, no compromise flat pedal. Beautifully finished. light. super smooth bearing action and a thin profile the at we couldn't get to hit the deck. even on low slung XC bikes.'
Even when things get squirrely, no matter what angle your foot goes onto the pedal there’s plenty of surface area to grip onto.
They work well with today’s ultra-low bottom bracket heights too thanks to their low-profile design, which makes clipping the deck less likely.
Fairclough and Lacondeguy…..The fact that those two riders sit at the top of the DH and freeride worlds more than attests to the Vaults’ gravity credentials.
..their (low) weight makes them a great option for the trail rider intent on hanging the back end out on a Sunday afternoon as well.
..they’ll comfortably outlast the vast majority of the competition and are fully worth the investment.
'It has a smooth concave centre and 11 pins per side, seven of which can be flipped to tune the amount of grip. ….plenty of room to shed mud and are nicely shallow to improve clearance.'
