We are happy to announce a new color option for our MFG Crosswind rudder pedals – Graphite/black color. From now on customers can choose to buy in original mild grey/black , or in new graphite color.

First small batch of pedals in new color just shipped to some customers scheduled for “july” delivery. We are currently producing in mild grey color, and next batch of graphite ones is scheduled to start production on 15th of August 2016, when we are about to recieve more quantity of new graphite surface material.  New orders, scheduled for September 2016 delivery onwards,  can choose to purchase in new graphite color if they want to.  Customers with scheduled delivery for “august 2016” can also update their order with a request for new graphite color – but such order update will postpone their delivery from “august” to “early September”.

Our order pages are not yet updated with color options, and our standard color is still “mild grey/black”.  If someone wish to order ( or update their order) in new graphite color just write “graphite” as additional note of your order.

Unlike pictures on our website gallery which show MFG Crosswind V1, pictures in this post show all latest enhacements on current MFG Crosswind model, internal designation is V2.3 . To sum up the most important changes   :

  • Foot plates design is slightly changed, some parts slightly increased in size,  many weight reduction pockets removed…all with purpose for more robust parts with less CNC machining time, since we don’t have a shipping limit of 5kg for quite a while now. Weight of the package is now 5,4 kg without extra cost options.
  • MFG SiMM8Rge electronics feature 3rd generation of digital triaxis Hall sensor on rudder axis,  USB type B plug, among other things.
  • zinc plated braking springs, with different type of spring-to-shaft hook joint.
  • more robust and more flexible rubberized brake axis cables, slightly redesigned cable pathways for robust and reliable brake sensors operation.

Regardless of the color, all pedals that we ship now feature latest enhacements. It seems obvious, but customers ask such questions so I have to write :-)

Here are a few pictures in new color :
