    HT pedals. It's the same as nuke proof and diety pedals but a bit cheaper (at least around here). Look threw their offer.

    I just ordered the replacement for my v12s...wanted a bit bigger platform, and lower profile. Went with the Kona Wah Wah's...they have excellent feel on the bike. I can't comment on longevity issues, haven't run them long enough (and it will have to wait, just busted my leg, big time...). However, I can't imagine anything STRONGER than a v12...damn well indestructible those pedals...

    The Konas are the same as the Deitys and several other brands, just different paint jobs and logos. Nice pedals though. Personally I like the look of the Deitys.

    DAMMIT! So they are...I wish I would have done a bit more research before pulling the trigger...the Deity's do indeed look way cooler, and would have matched my white on black new bike theme brilliantly. I rode the Kona's and loved them, so I figured no point in even checking anything else out (you'll always get 50 suggestions for pedals anyway...), but in this case I wish I had....

    Oh well at least it's still a good pedal.

    Iceman,
    You could have done worse. At least you have a pedal that you know you like!

    There are slight differences between the Kona and the Deity. The pins on the Deity screw in from the top. This makes them lighter, and removing pins is less likely to damage the thread. I think the bearings/bushings might be a bit different as well.

    +1... Decoys and Wah Wahs are not the same. They are just similar. Just ordered Decoys myself on Sunday. Im excited to get them, but I cant use them until I get a new wheelset ordered. Right now Im stuck on the Outlaw vs Revolution debate... lol leaning toward Outlaws though

    The Kona Wah Wahs should have a bit more grip as well because they have pins in the middle along the axle... Don't know how much of a difference it makes, but I'm sure it helps. This is also where some of the extra weight comes from... My Wah Wahs have held up to Northstar pretty well, they are tough.

    Im not "afraid" to ride in the mud... we just dont ride in the mud on our trails around here because it ruins our trails and makes ridiculous ruts. our dirt doesnt suck up the water and create a tacky trail like some places. sux, but its probably gonna be needing a couple of sunny 100 degree days before theres even a chance of riding. brown pedals=

    i figured you were joking... just that this weather friggin ticks me off! lol... especially now that I have new pedals and wanted to try them out. oh well, I need to go out and do some more work on a step up anyway and these conditions present some nice wet dirt to pack in.

    I actually just took a couple of parts off of my stinky and put them on my XC bike that I sold (so I could sell it). But, its ok cause now I can use the money to upgrade the parts I took off. By the time it dries up, Ill be rollin on a couple of other new parts.

    More pins does not mean more grip. It could prevent the foot from really sinking in. The foot may instead decide to ride on top of the pins.

    The extra pins may contribute to some of the weight. It also has to do with the pin design (as I've already mentioned). There's actually a pretty big gap in weight between the Kona and the Deity.

    Yes. The Kona is a good pedal. But it is not the exact same as the Deity. And I do prefer the Deity.
