The DMR Vault Brendog signature model just look classy even still in the box. Right away you know they mean business… they were designed by someone that actually rides them, as you have long pins installed out of the box. I have always hated having to fiddle around replacing the pins from super short ones to long ones before your first ride. As far as tech on flat pedals go the Vault ticks the boxes. With an extruded 6061 Aluminium body and 4140 Chromoly axles (9/16”), 17mm concave foot bed measuring approximately 105mm*115mm and high load DU bushing and cartridge bearing, oh and a few different size pins if you’re using these for dirt jumping or don’t like the feel of the longer pins.
I used a set of Etnies Marana that use a Michelin sole. While not your traditional riding shoe you would go to, this shoe is designed for good grip and high impact. The fact that a non-cycling specific flat pedal shoe felt so at home of the Vaults is testament to their profile and design qualities. You won’t be disappointed with a set of Vaults as they have great feel and should stand the test of time, you also get to colour choices being flat black and flat grey in the Brendog range.
