Tom Dugan’s Grandstand pedals are all about feel. When we set out to design a new pedal we knew what we wanted and we didn’t want to compromise. Slim pedals feel great because they put your foot closer to the axle which makes it more stable and easier to grip (imagine bolting a block of wood to the top of your pedal and having to balance on that). Dual concave gives a great feeling for your foot and helps keep you centered on the pedal. It lets you push the bike in any direction like the concave of a skateboard. Ergonomics dictate that the pedal should be big enough that your foot sits in the middle of the concave, so the pedal needs to be wide enough for that too. And of course we wanted a strong axle. And we wanted it to be affordable.
