The Stratics 575 is their basic pedal, with all the mechanical function and features of the other models. The pedals have a Silver cover on a Platinum Grey body, and use the machined steel spindle with the sealed cartridge bearing for it's internal bearing. It lacks the Delrin/Teflon bearing tube for the outer end of the pedal load. The internal spring for this model is the Blue "Sport" spring. The weight of the pair of 575 pedals is 258.5 grams. The weight of the Stratics cleat set and mounting hardware is 85.5 grams. $ Price in Catalog
The Stratics 675 pedals have a Red cover on a Black body. The 675 pedals use the machined Cro-moly steel spindle, drilled end to tend with a 4mm diameter hole to reduce weight. The outer 5mm at the end of the spindle has the diameter reduced from 9.4mm to 7mm. This reduced diameter in the spindle fits inside a tube of Brown Teflon-like material used for the outer load bearing to support the spindle's load over a broader area. The tube, positioned in the pedal body, is nestled into its far side. The tube functions as an outer bearing to support the spindle's load over a broader area. The retention spring on this model is the unpainted Comp spring. The weight of a pair of 675 pedals is 225 1/2 grams. The weight of the Stratics cleat set and mounting hardware is 85 1/2 grams. $ Price in Catalog
The Stratics 775 series introduces the Titanium element. In this pedal set the steel spindle used in the previous pedals is replaced with a machined Titanium spindle for further weight reduction. The standard steel spindle weighs 65 grams, while the Titanium version weighs just 36 grams. The Titanium spindles are machined from Ti 6Al-4V rod and treated by Sampson afterward with a special surface treatment that increases its surface slickness, making it more slippery. This treatment also increases the spindle's surface hardness, raising its Rockwell hardness (discussed in the Metals article). The spindle, like the 675, has a reduced diameter at the outer spindle end, which fits in a tube of Sampson's Brown Teflon-like bearing material. The cover on the 775 pedals is dark Blue, and riveted to a Platinum Grey body. The internal retention springs installed are the Blue Sport spring, however each 775 pedal set comes with a separate pair of the unpainted Comp springs and instructions for changing them. The weight of a pair of the Stratics 775 pedals is 199.5 grams, while the weight of the Stratics cleat set and mounting hardware is 85.5 grams. Sampson strongly recommends that the 775 pedals are not be used by riders weighing over 180 pounds (82 kilograms).
