Inmotion v5f and v8 pedals

Recommended Posts

Hi there,  newbe question... are the pedals on the v5f and the v8 the same? If I were to get the v8 abrasive pedal sticker, would it fit on my V5f? Thanks

Yep, they're identical. 

Source: I literally went over to the SO's V5f and V8 and looked, plus he's swapped them over before ^_^

My V10F pedals just arrived. I will mount them on V8. So sending some pictures for sizing consideration.

Comparing them with new big ones on KS-18XL and originals on V8/V5

KS are cca 5mm longer, so practically the same size but I prefer sandpaper on KS. On the other hand the rubber is very easily replaceble.

They're very very close in size! That must be comfortable! I must ask, is there any advantage at all to the rubber besides what you mentioned? Does it feel more comfortable for longer/shorter rides since theres a bit of bounce to the rubber? Do you feel secure? I get worried about it being over here in the wasteland of canada, lmao. Any water/snow and i feel like id be doing the splits and my wheel would be off greeting traffic aggressively.

Does this mean the v5f could also use the v10f pedals too? Did you have to do any filling on the v8?

Yes, it does, and eWheels already has them, plus the necessary spacers. @Jason McNeil shared the link previously, but here it is: https://www.ewheels.com/product/new-inmotion-xl-pedals-for-v10-f-v8-glide-3-v5f-glide-2/

I have received my pedals for the V8 but haven’t installed them yet.  Planning this weekend.

Also installing it on my V8. 

You need cca 1 and 1/2 more of the original shims. But it looks I can use 8mm x 14mm shims

It is there on my V8, I used normal 8mm shims together with original shims.

I'm ashamed that not any part is 3D printed as  is very common in these days ;-)

you will have to have longer rod (delivered with V10 pedals) then the original one which is on V5/V8

Posture is great. Not sure about slippery when it will get wet.

They must jump up and down on their sales number of V10 pedals. I got a pair too, now under evaluation, but so far so good.

Made my decision,  I've sold my v5f and gotten the v10 instead lol. Happy days. Sold my v5f for £340, add another £340 and gotten a new wheel better handling,  bigger pedals. Wouldn't wanha pay £90 - 100 just for pedals.
