    Thin flat pedals

    I'm currently running DMR V-8's, which are too thick for the trails I ride. I'm getting a lot of pedal strikes and have already lost a number of pins in the past 3 months. So much that my feet are starting to slip.

    Can you guys recommend a lighter, thinner flat pedal?

    I have both the Crampon and the Crampon Ultimates. Can't see anything needing improvement with them.

    Hey Barheet,
    I have the Canfield Crampons I think they are the cat's meow! If you think you are interested in trying them you should pm me. If you are racing in the mullet classic I can bring a pair for you to check out!

    I run these:




    They offer a wide area for foot placement, are servicable, have a grease port, super light and very strong. They also grip your shoe really really really well.

    I have heaps of confidence with these pedals. When my foot comes off, I know I can put it back on with the pedal in the exact same place that I left it. The bearings are also super smooth.

    I have been riding on these for over a year now. Held up great in many 4 hour, 6 hour, and 8 hour XC races, as well as taking a bashing through rock gardens and the likes on my casual weekend rides. Really good price price too compared to nukeproof and the likes.

    Another vote for the Crampon Ultimates. I also like my twenty6 Predators.

    The Canfield website (or a phone call) is the place to get them, but as you probably figured out, they're out of stock for another month or so. A friend of mine called Fitzgerald's in Victor, ID but IIRC they only had 1 color he didn't want and I'd imagine they're out now, too.

    As you can see, mine have taken a licking and keep on ticking.

    I have the Spank Spikes. It's only 12mm thick. I love them.

    +1 for the Canfield Crampon Ultimates. Mine have taken many rock strikes and not bent a single pin.

    I was hoping to get some new ones soon, so the Crampons may be out if they're out of stock. I really like what I'm seeing from the Spank Spikes. It looks from the pictures like all the pins screw in. If so, they would seem to be more durable.

    I'm running the Deity Compound pedals. Thin, light, and was about $50.

    I'm running the Crank Brothers 5050 / 3 and like it so far. You can find it for about $85.

    My wife has the Point One Racing Podium pedal -- a little pricey but super-cool and as light and thin (only 11mm!) as they come.

    Finally, I have heard very good things about the Answer Rove FR pedal.

    You might want to check out the Evo line: some pedals are only 11mm thick. Try the AE01 or if you want lighter and fancier looking the MEO1T.

    The DU bushings aren't getting a great reviews thus far. Many people are running into play in the pedal with a small amount of rides on them.

    VP Vice pedal. Around 70$ if you want you can upgrade to a Ti axle as well to drop weight.
