Review: Answer Rove FR PedalsOriginally posted on December 4, 2014 at 13:19 pm
For the past month I’ve been running Answer’s Rove FR pedals on all my bikes. Swapping between a fatty, full suspension, dirt jumper and gravel grinder. That’s just how I roll.
The Roves are solid. They feature a concave platform and ten hex-head pins per side. They even ship with ten replacement pins for when you tear a few off.
The pedal’s 6061 series alloy deck is just wide enough to provide a good platform for my feet and the pins keep my trusty Five Ten Freeriders from slipping around. I’ve had grippier pedals in the past, but the Roves maintain a nice balance between grip and the freedom to reset my foot when I get a bit out of sorts. That said, I’ve yet to slip a pedal…knock on wood.
Weighing in at 467 grams the Roves feature a cartridge bearing and steel axle that should take a pounding, and a thin 16mm profile to keep those rock hits to a minimum.
This is a great moderately priced pedal which feels like it will stand the test of time.
Colors: Red, Black, Gold, White, Silver.
