When I left off last time I said i wanted to try this pedal in its most stripped down form – a double sided clipless format. I actually sat down to swap in the clipless mechanism I took off and to remove the “wings” which make up the flat pedal when it is configured in that way. However; I ran into something that might be the only negative I have about this versatile pedal system.

That is that having many component pieces, it is easy to lose or misplace the parts you are not using. And yes – I am guilty of just that!

So….. What happened I don’t know, but all the spares went “poof” and until they surface again in my over-stuffed shop I won’t be using these as anything but the flats/clipless dual set-up I had been using them in at the mid-term of this review.

That said, I did go ahead and take apart the pedals down to their minimalist form and I was impressed by the jigsaw-like tight fit of these components. The machining tolerances are impressive, and it just further cements the impression I have of these pedals being of high quality and that the attention to detail is at a high level.

At The Finish: The Redshift Sports Arclight PRO Pedals are a high-quality, very versatile, smooth pedal with a safety feature that is really impressive. Essentially these are the one pedal solution for anyone that uses one bike for many different tasks. A gravel bike being pressed into duty as a commuter and a touring bike? This pedal would cover all of that while also offering a high quality bearing system and user-friendly light modules which have eye-grabbing moving light. Characteristics that some studies suggest are more effective at keeping you safe at night on a bike than static mounted tail lights are.

Again, there is that possibility that you could lose parts of the pedal not in use, but if you are more organized than I apparently am, you shouldn’t have an issue there. Otherwise these Arclight PRO pedals are another recommended offering from Redshift Sports.
