Press Release: The Dagga

Press Release: The Dagga

Posted by William Westwood on

We are excited to introduce a new pedal to the Chromag line up for 2019 – The Dagga. It’s a DH pedal at heart that excels in high impact and demanding conditions where traction, size and durability are an asset. Chris Kovarik, known as one of the forefathers of flat pedal riding approached us with several ideas to make the pedal he always wanted. The Dagga is the result of our collaboration, featuring the widest stance of any pedal we’ve made and the largest overall platform with increased length, fore and aft for pressure dissipation.

Kovarik’s unique and high impact riding style inspired the Dagga’s key features – our largest platform and widest stance ever.  Meant to be ridden with thick soled shoes, the Dagga offers improved stability, power and articulation of the bike.

The body is fully CNC’d from one solid billet of 6061 aluminium, providing superior strength and a clean, sharp design.  The Dagga features the same high strength chromoly axle system (Gen.3) as other models with a double seal, inner bushing and outer cartridge bearing.

Ian and Chris discussing the finer points of getting a good shinner.


The Dagga is designed to be a rugged, impact resistant pedal. The bodies are initially cold forged and then CNC machined and feature a solid perimeter to resist rock strikes. Chris wanted maximum traction and the pins were an important consideration. We settled on a two-step design that tapers in the length with threads right to the tip. The pins are height adjustable via the included washers. The Dagga features Chromag’s G3 axle system with a hardened, precision ground chromoly axle. A wide layout bearing/bushing combo and a double seal to keep contaminates out.
