Ritchey have long been a proponent of pedal systems that are universal in function, but unique in their individual design and the WCS Echelon is no different.
The WCS Echelon Pedal, has a body made of 6061 alloy and a cromoly spindle with (adjustable) retention claw made of carbon-resin composite.
Weighing-in at 233 grams, the WCS Echelon has great strength and durability for its compact size. The distance between the axle and body platform is extremely low which creates a highly efficient pedaling arc, especially in the top of the pedal stroke – almost eliminating the traditional “dead zone.”
The pedal’s light-weight cleat provides a wide platform for greater support and foot comfort.
- Forged alloy body with BB Black finish
- High strength nylon/carbon claw for easy entry and exit
- Adjustable spring tension
- Ball bearing, needle and bushing system for maximum axle support
