Bigger, grippier, lighter, and as tough as ever - the Penthouse Flat MK5 Pedal is here!

After two years of development and testing the MK5 Penthouse Flat is here. Retaining Burgtec's signature toughness, the MK5 is the lightest and grippiest Burgtec pedal to-date. This was accomplished by not only increasing the size of the pedal platform but also the depth of the concave. Furthermore, the diameter of the pins was reduced and the most wear-resistant internals on the market were added. From the outside in, Burgtec sweated the details of the MK5 to bring you the ultimate flat pedal!

It was of the utmost importance that the MK5’s internals represent the best of the best. To do this Burtec specced the most wear-resistant bushings from Igus. Their "Endurance Runner" material - W300, was a clear winner as this gave unrivalled resistance to external influences. Mud and water ingress is kept at bay with a full-contact oil seal. This keeps grease in and contaminants out, even in the harshest of conditions. This configuration of quality parts is why the Penthouse series has a reputation for outstanding longevity.

IS IT POSSIBLE TO MAKE A BETTER PEDAL?

Here is what Singletrack Magazine had to say about the new Mk5 pedal... 

"Those of you who can cast your mind back over the past 16 years might be able to remember the first 3 generations of Penthouse mountain bike pedals. Each one was a slight improvement on the last with a nip and tuck here and a refinement there. But by the time they came to the MK4 it was time for a completely new design. It looks like Burgtec is back in the rhythm as the MK5 isn’t a totally new pedal but a refinement over the last."
