The CFM 3 piece shift pedals feature a hard anodized/Teflon coated pivot for smooth- long lasting operation. The pivot is extremely tough and will rarely break in the event of a crash. The main replacement shaft and lever tip are both individually replaceable and are far less expensive than an OEM pedal. These trademark CFM pieces are not only economical- but are also very easy to replace-saving time during a quick repair. However- you may not even need to replace them as we have seen our main shafts bent to nearly 90 degrees and back several times before breaking……try THAT with your OEM pedal!
