The DMR VAULT MIDI pedal shares many similarities with its big brother the DMR Vault, including the build quality, materials, pin pattern and profile. This is good news as the DMR VAULT is an excellent pedal that has won multiple awards and is a popular pedal amongst many mountain bikers. The VAULT MIDI is essentially the same pedal but smaller, aimed at riders with smaller feet or those who prefer a smaller pedal.
The DMR VAULT MIDI offers excellent grip between the pedal and the sole of your shoe. They are slim with a 17mm footbed and offer a low profile which makes for excellent clearance which helps with bottom brackets getting lower.
The VAULT MIDI’s like the VAULTS are easily serviceable meaning they will last a long time if cared for and as these are such a popular pedal, service parts are easy to get hold of.
In summary, the DMR VAULT MIDI platform pedals are an excellent pedal particularly if you are looking for one with a smaller profile. If looked after these will last for many years.
The Pedals are available in 3 colour choices: Black, Pink Punch and Red. Black and Red are also available in the updated V2 Model whereas the Pink Punch are still the original version.
