The last time we checked in with Origin8, a value-minded brand that strives to compete in a wide array of cycling components, we saw them preparing to release a carbon fiber cyclocross disc frameset several years ago to add to the Origin8 steel cyclocross bike.
While the company doesn’t have an updated frame for 2016, it is still looking to add to the quill of their components in the realm of cyclocross. New for this year is the Origin8 Ultim8 off-road pedal lineup, which expands on the already available Origin8 Double Clipless.
The new models are called the Ultim8 MTB Double Clipless Pedal, weighing in at a claimed 280g per pair, and the Ultim8 All-Mountain Double Clipless Pedal weighs in at a claimed 285g per pair despite adding a fairly large cage with an increased surface area.
Both pedals come with adjustable tension, with the All-Mountain offering the same six degrees of float, while the Ultim8 MTB Double Clipless Pedal tightens the range up at four degrees of float. Both are designed to accommodate a Shimano SPD cleat, with the Ultim8 MTB Double Clipless Pedal priced at $59.99 and the All-Mountain selling for $66.99.
