You will find him at events like Red Bull Rampage among other freestyle and downhill events. Tyler and the boss man at Deity, Eric Daives, set out to create a large platform pedal with a true concave pedal body design.

The Deity TMAC pedals are designed for those riders looking for the ultimate grip out of there pedals. Some riders have different preferences on how they want flat pedals to feel underneath their shoe. The TMAC pedals are meant to lock your feet in place, but still give you the ability to adjust them if you want. Deity offers a full lineup of flat pedals that all vary in the amount of grip they provide.

Riding and Performance


  • The Deity TMAC pedals have the most grip of any flat pedal I have ever ridden. Most of this is thanks to the deep concave shape. The pedal cups your feet on big impacts where on other pedals I have used, your shoe folds over the front and back of the pedal body.  I rode these pedals with a few different shoes as well; the Five Ten Impact VXI Flat, Five Ten Freedrider Pro, and a classic vans shoe. The TMAC pedals are designed to give the ultimate grip, and they do!
  • After riding these pedals for over a year, they still are as good as new. Sure they are scraped up a bit, and that's why I am impressed everything has held together so nicely. The pedals spin just like I took them out of the box and nothing has come loose or developed any play. The pins are easy to change if you need to and the TMAC pedals seem very durable. Deity does sell a rebuilt kit for the TMAC pedals if needed.
  • The TMAC signature pedals have become my do it all pedal. Currently I have  them on my hardtail, and this winter they can be found on my downhill bike. I just need one pair and swap them back and fourth between any and all of my bikes. 
  • These pedals just work! No issues so far. I just throw them on my bike and am good to go for any type of riding.

  • Some critics would say that the Deity TMAC pedals aren't the thinest pedals out there, and they aren't, but to me the extra grip they provide more than makes up for it. For the times I would be scraping pedals on rocks and roots, it seems like that would happen on any pedals regardless of how thick they are. 

What's The Bottom Line?

After 1 year of riding on the Deity TMAC flat pedals, they are still spinning like the day they came out of the box. They are sealed nicely and have held up to big impacts on the hardtail as well as some of the nastiest conditions on the downhill bike. The TMAC pedals have a deep concave shape that cups your foot. Along with plenty of traction pins on each side, there is no lack of grip with these pedals. If you are someone who loves riding on flat pedals, you will love the Deity TMAC signature pedals!
