100% ball bearing design, period.
Physics applied consequently: ball bearings, particularly under pressure, produce less friction than plain bearings. This is true, as plain bearing designs tend to suffer from dirt entering the system more than ball bearing designs. As a consequence, we use high-strength precision ball bearings in all three parts of the NumberNine pedal. For you as a rider, this means one thing for sure: you receive highly efficient pedals that work successively better the harder you ride.
Whoever designs durable, may design lightweight.
As opposed to common extrusion press profile designs made from 6061 Aluminum or even Magnesium that tend to crack when hitting obstacles, the NumberNine2 is manufactured with a mono-bloc design made from aeronautically approved 7075 T6 Aluminum. All bridges and cross reinforcements of the NumberNine2 are based on actual engineering findings without any modern design gimmicks as found elsewhere on the market. This is what makes the pedal almost indestructible when out on the trail.
A high-strength Titanium axle that has been approved by the Syntace own test procedures keeps the pedal together boasting with a maximum load of up to 500 kg per pedal. We have not seen a single pedal break apart in the past!
When hit from the side, the force of a crash is delivered to a special end stop cap rather than to the vulnerable bearings.
…sensational 285 g (size M, including 44 pins and grease filling)! The 44 pins of the tread sit on a slightly higher, concave platform. The pins in the middle sit somewhat lower, while the eight pins on the outside are placed on slightly raised bridges without any notches.
The NumberNine Titanium comes with 44 Aluminum pins (44 Aluminum 7075 T6) incl. one spare pin. On top of this, it comes with a specially designed screwdriver that allows to exchange the pins quickly. This is how you can not only vary the number of pins very easily, but also exchange Aluminum pins with Steel pins in particularly exposed areas of the pedal. The optional Syntace Steel pins as well as Aluminum spare pins can be ordered (in packs of 10 each) at your Syntace dealer.

An individual pedal size for every rider
The Syntace NumberNine2 is the first ever pedal that is available in no less than three different, proportionally adapted sizes. This is why a pedal is not to fit a standard rider, but to every single, individual rider.

Apart from the shoe size, the pedal size depends on the actual size of the shoe sole, the riding position on the pedal and eventually the riding purpose.
The incorporated and dirt protected Syntace Grease Port as well as the further improved open bearing design allow for a greasing of the pedal within seconds. This leads to a multi-times prolonged durability compared to conventionally greased ball bearings designs.
