CHINO, CA – April 1, 2020 – (Motor Sports NewsWire) – Yoshimura is adding a new branch to its heritage tree of high-quality products, starting with our Chilao pedals 100% made in USA. In development for over 18 months, each pedal is hand crafted and assembled in Chino, California. With input from top MTB DH and Enduro pros, this purpose engineered flat pedal is perfect for MTB, Dirt Jumping and BMX.
Made from 6061-T6 billet aluminum, featuring 7075 T6-alloy pins, sealed dual cartridge/bushing system, v-ring seal design, all riding on a proprietary alloy steel spindle.
Why bicycle components when the industry is saturated with tons of choices? Quite simply for the love of riding! Company President Yusaku Yoshimura, grandson of founder Pop Yoshimura loves Mountain Biking and pushing his own limits on two wheels. Fueled by a desire to contribute to the bicycle community and passion for excellence, Yusaku engineered a high-end flat pedal for ultimate performance. “I just don’t want to treat this project as a business, as though we have to generate more revenue for the company. If we can contribute to the bicycle community some new ideas, and something new then I think we should do it.” said Yusaku Yoshimura.
Supporting the Chilao pedals will be a collection of 4 different colorways of made in USA short sleeve jerseys, sizes S-XXL. Made with Air Kontrol and Air Cav fabric these high-performance jerseys that look as good as they perform! Also part of the collection are Race fit cycling kits also made in the USA (is there a theme here?).
“When we tell riders and industry that we are making the Chilao, the next question is – What else is Yoshimura making? Whatever it is it will be built with passion and purpose.” said Yusaku Yoshimura.
At this point all Yoshimura Cycling products are available direct to consumer only.
