After putting a beating on the Crankbrothers Stamp pedals on the rough Trans Cuba (and a lot of miles since), we can certainly vouch for it as a solid flat pedal for bikepacking, touring, and trail riding alike. And now the Stamp gets some tweaks and comes in four new flavors ranging from $80 to $300…

We obviously aren’t the only ones that like the Crankbrothers Stamp Pedals — just introduced last year — because the company just announced four models to extend the line: the Stamp 2, 3, 7, and pricey 11 with titanium spindles, plus a signature Danny MacAskill pair. Like the originals that two of us tested in Cuba, all four Stamp models come in two sizes — small for shoe sizes less than size 10 (43EU), and large for anything over. Here’s the rundown.

The Crankbrothers Stamp 2 and 3 are quite different from the original Stamp — spoiler alert, the Stamp 7 is the same as the original. The two budget(er) models have a thicker, flat, 16 millimeter platform, whereas the Stamp 7 and 11 use a concave platform that ranges from 11-13mm thin. The entry level Stamp 2 gets the same forged 435 chromoly steel spindle as the original (and the current 3 and 7). However, the Stamp 2 platform is die cast, in contrast to the other models are which are forged. Both the Stamp 2 and 3 use an outboard Enduro bearing in place of the outboard Igus bushing on the original. All four models get an inboard Igus glide bushing with an internal seal as well as an external seal.

Crankbrothers Stamp 2

Crankbrothers Stamp 2 / $80

Weight (L): 470 grams | Weight (S): 415 grams

As mentioned, the main difference between the Stamp 2 and 3 is the platform manufacturing process. The Stamp 2 is die cast making it slightly heavier and theoretically not as strong.

Platform Dimensions: (S) 100 x 100mm; (L) 111 x 114mm
Platform Thickness: 16mm
Platform Material: 6061-T6 Die Cast
Pins: 10 per side (adjustable height)
Colors: Raw, Red, Black

Crankbrothers Stamp 3

Crankbrothers Stamp 3 / $100

Weight (L): 455 grams | Weight (S): 399 grams

The Crankbrothers Stamp 3 shaves a few grams off of the 2 for $20 and has a forged platform with the same size specs as the 2. They are also available as a Danny MacAskill signature edition and offered in both sizes for the same price of $99.

Platform Dimensions: (S) 100 x 100mm; (L) 111 x 114mm
Platform Thickness: 16mm
Platform Material: 6061-T6 Forged
Pins: 10 per side (adjustable height)
Colors: Electric Blue, Black

Crankbrothers Stamp 7

Crankbrothers Stamp 7 / $150

Weight (L): 375 grams | Weight (S): 345 grams

The Stamp 7 is closest to the original that we tested in Cuba. Under the hood, it keeps the same internals — a forged 435 chromoly steel axle and two igus LL-glide bushings — one internal and one external. Crankbrothers has such faith in these mechanicals that they include a 5-year warranty, across the whole line. And we’d certainly vouch for a lot of abuse. After the rugged Trans Cuba and much riding afterwards, they’re still going strong. Read our review here.

Platform Dimensions: (S) 100 x 100mm; (L) 111 x 114mm
Platform Thickness: 11-13mm concave
Platform Material: 6061-T6 Forged
Pins: 10 per side (adjustable height)
Colors: Red, Black
Warranty: Red, Black

Crankbrothers Stamp 11

Crankbrothers Stamp 11 / $300

Weight (L): 325 grams | Weight (S): 299 grams

The Stamp 11 gets quite a bit of bling over the 7. To lighten it up it features a titanium spindle and for looks, which if you are properly riding a mountain bike shouldn’t be visible through the mud, the pins are anodized gold.

Platform Dimensions: (S) 100 x 100mm; (L) 111 x 114mm
Platform Thickness: 11-13mm concave
Platform Material: 6061-T6 Forged
Pins: 10 per side (adjustable height)
Colors: Raw, Red
