Nukeproof Horizon Pedals
Words & Photos by Chili Dog
Developed with the help of the flat pedal poster child, Sam Hill, the Nukeproof Horizon pedals are a well thought out large platform flat that offer plenty of grip. In fact, we can’t think of another rider who’s helped sell flat pedals more than Sam. With quality input and Nukeproof’s reputation we were excited to give these things a go.
Big pins, concave bodies and large platforms are a few of my favorite things, and the Horizons check all the boxes. Though the pedal bodies themselves aren’t as drastically concave as others like Deity’s TMAC for example, the tall pins on the outside edges of the platform make the actual grip surface far more concave than the platform alone would suggest. The outer pins are also height adjustable via a set of washers, which means that the aggressiveness of the pedal bite can be tuned to personal preference. The outer pins thread into the forged 6061-T6 alloy body from the opposite side, aiding in the removal of broken pins and ensuring you don’t have to sit there and pick out dirt to fit in a hex key. Two DU bushings and four sealed cartridge bearings help the pedal spin reliably despite hard use. Should you need to replace anything, Nukeproof offers easy to order parts to keep you rolling.
