WARNING: Installing this bicycle product requires in-depth knowledge of bicycle mechanics and professional-grade tools. If you do not have the proper tools or knowledge to perform this installation, please take your bicycle to your local bicycle dealer. Failure to appropriately install this product may lead to component failure, resulting in serious injury or death.

We recommend that you have this product installed, adjusted and maintained by a professional bicycle mechanic.


Chromag pedals are CNC machined from 6061–T6 aluminum.

The removable pins are made from hardened steel and can be customized in height by adjusting the number of washers beneath them. Do not exceed 2 washers underneath a pin.

The axle is heat treated chromoly and uses a 6 or 8mm allen key, depending on model, for mounting and removing from the crank arms.


Chromag Scarab, Contact, Dagga, Radar, and Synth models are designed as flat pedals for use with non-clipped shoes. 


  • Inspect and clean the axle threads if necessary. Lightly grease the threads.
  • Use a crankarm washer if crank manufacturer recommends using one.
  • Using a 6mm or 8mm allen key as appropriate, thread the pedals into the crank from the rear.
  • REMEMBER: Drive side pedals are right-hand threaded and non-drive side pedals are left-hand threaded. If you are unsure which pedal goes on which side, use the laser-etched graphic as a reference - the text should be upright and readable to the rider when they are sitting on the bike.
  • Do not over-tighten the pedals. Refer to crank manufacturers guidelines for torque spec. An approximate minimum should be 30NM. 
  • Chromag pedals have removable pins and numerous positions for pins. We recommend experimenting to find the right balance of grip and dexterity for you. Different pedal/shoe combinations will affect the feel, as will riding style and preferences.

Care and Maintenance

Regularly check pedals are tight on the cranks and apply a light film of grease each season.

Check pins for burrs and sharp edges. File or replace as necessary.

Chromag pedal pins are designed such that the exposed head breaks off under heavy impact to avoid damage to the pedal body. If a pin head is too bent to remove the pin, but not completely broken, use pliers to snap the pin head off before unthreading and replacing the pin normally.

In the case of a crash, impact or heavy landing check the pedals for damage. Do not attempt to straighten a pedal axle if it becomes bent. If there is any damage or bend to pedal axles, they can be replaced provided the body is not damaged.

Chromag pedals are designed to be easily serviced. Please refer to maintenance instructions on or contact us at
