This is the new Nukeproof Horizon clipless pedal, designed and developed in collaboration with Nukeproof World Cup team riders and engineers. The Nukeproof Horizon CL and Horizon CS pedals feature Nukeproof’s proven axle system, a large ‘pedal-to-shoe’ area for stability and maximum power transfer plus a secure easy-engagement mechanism.
The larger CL model is more gravity focused providing a confidence inspiring pedal platform with its burly outer cage protecting the cleat mechanism
The Nukeproof Horizon CL was recently featured in mbr’s ‘hot stuff’ review as one of the most eagerly anticipated products to arrive in 2017!
The Nukeproof Horizon clipless pedal is available in two platforms; the larger CL model (pictured above) is more gravity focused providing a confidence inspiring pedal platform with its burly outer cage protecting the cleat mechanism. The CS model (pictured below) has a slightly smaller outer cage. Built to be lightweight, but still provide great support for the rider’s foot, aiming towards those whose focus is more trail/ enduro orientated.
All Pedals will be available in 4 colours:
Black, Red, Blue and Copper
The CS model has a slightly smaller outer cage. Built to be lightweight, but still provide great support for the riders foot, aiming towards those who’s focus is more trail / enduro orientated.
Technical info: Both Nukeproof Horizon CL and CS use our proven axle system utilising a combination of sealed cartridge bearings and DU bushes to provide a super durable and easily serviceable assembly.
As with the Horizon Pro we produced the 6061 Aluminium body using a cold forged process which equips the pedal with high strength Vs weight characteristics due to its optimised grain structure. This is not achievable with more common cast or machined pedal chassis. The Q factor (55mm) of the pedals will not change between the CS and CL and is designed to be compatible with 142mm/148mm/150mm rear axles.
The 6061 Aluminium chassis has been cleverly engineered and designed to accommodate a multitude of shoe profiles (Black outline is the CL and Green the CS). The sloping toe edge prevents obstruction during engagement, reduces weight and protects the bindings and mechanism from strikes with rocks and obstacles.
The Nukeproof Horizon CL and CS have a large ‘pedal to shoe’ contact area either side of the mechanism.
This is designed to add stability when engaged, maximises power transfer and provides a “flat pedal feel” inspiring confidence for riders of all abilities
Riders can tailor the traction pins to offer varying levels of grip depending on preference by simple adjustment of the pin heights or removing pins completely through removal of the washers supplied. (6 pins on the CL model/ 4 Pins on the CS model).
Our unique chassis profile and clever placement of the pins have led the way for a contoured leading edge to help deflect rock strikes and obstacle impacts away from the mechanism and riders foot.
The Nukeproof cleat is profiled with front and rear ramp’ed edges offers a seamless engagement with the mechanism in all riding conditions. Spring loaded front and rear bindings enable the rider to engage from all directions (forwards, backwards and above). Spring tension can be adjusted via a 3mm hex key to offer varying levels disengagement force.
There will be two versions of the cleat available with a varying degree of float form +4 to +8 degrees. This cleat system is unique to Nukeproof, but does support Shimano SPD devices.
