    So I've been looking for some concave pedals as well, and have tried to find as many side views of pedals as I could find, and I've made a comparison image.
    Note that the comparison can't be 100% precise, it still depends on the angle of the images and if there are any "hidden" features that change the concavity of the pedal. But it should give a decent first impression.

    Speaking of Hope's pedals and their pins... I've been meaning to ask if any other companies make pedals with pins like the ones on Hope's F20s. Countersunk flared bases seem like a brilliant idea. It should make them less likely to get damaged around the threads, in addition to simply adding strength and support right where they're needed.

    But the F20s are thick by modern standards and not exactly light. I run them on my DH bike but would like something with the same pins on a lighter platform for my AM/FR bike.

    This was my thinking too, and the only reason I tried the Hope's last..... However, I can not tell any difference in feel regarding 'thickness' when compared to the 12mm thin Oozys they replaced.

    On my scale the Oozys weighed 371g, while the Hopes weighed 396g.

    I haven't weighed the Origin8 Slimlines that I have on my main bike now, but they're allegedly 308g, or 3oz less than the Hopes. I'd quit looking at more pedals if they had Hope's pins.

    And I'm not convinced that thickness matters much either. I'm perfectly content to use F20s on my DH bike, and they'll probably stay there for as long as I have that bike. But I wonder if Hope could match that weight (or come close to it) if they went to a modern slim design.

    How about the Twenty6 Predator pedals?

    not exactly light at a claimed 405g (chromoly), but they do sell a Ti version at 340g. Super pricey though.

    I had hard time parting with $140 for Hopes, I don't think I could handle $270. :) The pin design does seem really cool though, it has the same features I like about Hope, and maybe even better as it looks like they sit pretty deep into the pedal. But if this reviewer's experience is typical, aluminum might not have been the best choice for the pins:

    You win some, you lose some, I guess. The pedal itself should last forever... maybe longer than the supply of replacement pins will last. :)

It isn't like they're tiny, but just a few mms short of what I like in terms of pedal body vs foot feel.

    I'm currently on the "2nd gen" Hope Tech F20s (with the hallow/flat top pins) and they feel like the RF Atlas under foot, and are built like a freakin' tank. I bought them from CRC as most vendors in the US seem to still have the "1st Gen" pedals with the round/smooth-top pins that don't grip nearly as well.

    I have tried, ridden and sold; (2) RF Atlas, Chromag Scarab & Contact, Spank Spike & Oozy, Canfield Crampon Mountains.

    Only the RF had mechanical problems, while every other pedal was solidly designed and constructed, but they just didn't feel right for me and my personal issue.

    The Spank Oozy's were my go-to before the Hopes, and the Crampons were the absolute worst in terms of feel and grip..... not a fan of convex I guess.

    Thanks for the heads up D.

    Ive changed the pins on the spry xpedo to twin tips and the grip is so much better. If you have these pedals and want more grip, give these pins a try. They are about $20 on ebay

    Vital Article verifies the industry impact of this thread, now 2100+ replies deep
    Solid takeaway from the article:

    "The issue with building thin pedals is that the axle and bearing/bushing system has to support the full weight of the rider and do so while putting up with harsh landings, rock strikes, and other abuse. An axle can only be made so thin before it snaps, which means you also have to shrink the size of the bearings or abandon them completely in favor of ultra-thin bushings. Longevity thus becomes an issue and the fact that the axle area ends up being the thickest part of the pedal body does not bode well for grip."

    ^ While I haven't tried the Harrier or Gamut, I have the F20 and the Atlas...... Go with the F20s and never look back. The Atlases will last weeks, maybe days before one of them develops lateral play, and the F20s will work for years.

    Don't let the F20s "thick, old school" design throw you, as they are the most comfortable and gripiest pedals I have tried, and I went through a ton before finding the Hopes..... Just make sure you get the 2nd generation pins, not the smooth top pins like in your picture above. (any of the Euro sites should stock the 2nd gen/flat top pins)

    He has a relatively small shop that's absolutely booked solid filling industry contracts. The bike brand is idling for the meantime. He still takes care of warranty issues, though. He's a great guy and while I miss seeing his products on shelves, I'm happy for him that the contract machining has taken off.

    DMR V12 vs Gamut Podium vs VP Harrier Altitude
    @evasive - that's solid that another lane opened up, hope to have that small shop back in the industry. Sounds like Point One Racing before being acquired by Gamut

    @themanro looking forward to the pedal, makes a lot of sense with the length of the foot, and especially in comparison with the Vaults which have a reputation for being large and wide

    @D Bone almost picked up a set of Hope F20s but CRC was out of polished silver that I was looking forward to trying.

    Exciting week, I have ditched the SPD XTR and XTR Trail pedals because wearing those darned shoes was uncomfortable anywhere except on the bike and cramped my style anywhere off the bike.

    So on the one bike to rule them all, had an opportunity to try some flats. I've been riding DMR V12 Magnesium pedals, which were bang for the buck and I thought the brass end cap was classy.

    Here are a couple shots from the new setups, which are wide large thin and light.

    I removed the gaudy gold hardware and used black Race Face Atlas hardware for a savings of 11g per pedal.


    DMR V12 Mag 183g/pedal
    Gamut Podium 148g/pedal
    Harrier Altitude (extra machining and ti spindles) 131g/pedal


    All really light even with steel spindles - compare their weights to my first post in this thread where the pedal sets are double triple quadruple the weight and double the stack height. Interesting to see that my Brooklyn Machine Works tenderizer meathook pedals are selling for $400 on ebay.

    The Harrier pedals after tuning ended up at 265.9g for the pedal set. The Gamut Podiums are just under 300g and have more aggressive, taller pins.

    This, but if you don't like Canfield any of the other choices that are thinner than the Saints/5050s.

    I had Saints for one ride and took them off. Hated them. Couldn't bring myself to spend the money on Canfield- but found a used pair so I took a chance. Love them, even bought another pair for my second bike.

    Takes a minute to get used to it. But it actually gives you more foot positions available on the pedal than concave. For example when riding a downhill trail I put the pedal in the arch of my foot. Sticks like glue because of the convex shape and let's you control your bike easier and have more confidence.

    I bought the original Crampons for $100 when they were being discontinued, but they were such a revelation that I won't hesitate to spend $150 on the Mountains when the time comes. I prefer to tackle technical sections with my arch over the spindle, so they're a natural fit for me, but I was stunned by how much more efficient pedaling felt with the spindle so close to my foot. Pedaling was noticeably quicker than with thicker flats and made giving up the clips that much easier.

    I own the Ultimates. By far, my favorite platform form factor. However, if you are particular about freespin quality and rebuilds - damn, these wore stupid fast. I limped through a year just increasing my rebuild frequency to silence them and replacing destoryed washers and springs with whatever was local; I should have bought a rebuild kit or 2 right off. I compare that to my Spikes which have more time and never need a lick of attention.

    If I was in the market - I'd go for the mountains since they use sealed bearings. If you cheap-out and get regular ultimates it'll probably be smart to purchase a rebuild kit or two and save the $6 shipping.

    It is worth noting that the function of the Ultimates isn't dramatically compromised and it's about as simple as a hammer - rebuilds take a few minutes tops. Oh and I live in a dry climate but I ride all year around so wet mud types might have different experiences.

    Having had both the new and older crampons I feel like they went a little too convex. On the old ones I didn't feel the convex (felt flat) but it seemed way more pronounced on these. I didn't find grip as good on them. I'm sure the bearing/bushing layout is better on the new design though. I'll be curious to see what you think vs ultimates.

    I just got a new bike, decided that it was time to move on from the Crampons; love their feel and how easy they are to rebuild but got sick of bushing play. I thought about the Mountains, but ended up trying the DMR Vault 2. Very different than the Crampon (concave vs convex!). So far I'm loving the Vaults, the biggest positive being just how solid and quality they feel. Pics and first 5 rides impressions to come.

    Honestly, riding in ATX is pretty dry - I get out and ride in some sandy/muddy conditions occasionally but the bushings were simply NOT an issue over the last 5 years on my Ultimates.
    Combine the lack of inclination to go bearings over bushings with a preference for the slightly smaller platform (works fine on my size 10.5 5.10 shoes) I figured I'd stick with what I know. The outer edges of my pedals are where I see the most strikes (although 6mm is really inconsequential!)

    Best Platform Pedals 2017
    Three favorite PREMIUM platform pedals to date:

    Harrier Titanium (VP) 256g/pair (for size 10 and up)

    Gamut Podium (Point1 Racing) 300g/pair (balanced)

    Syncros Crux (Mental Alloy) 428g/pair (repeated beating durability)

    So stoked to see industry's many reactionary competitive offerings since the launch of this thread over 7 years ago, thanks all for contributing and helping people save money from buying inferior pedals.

    Still rocking my Kore Rivera Thermo... same set, with the same set of (heavily worn) Shimano shoes! My Zee cranks get more rock/concrete strike marks on ends as years go by, but plastic pedal bodies are still okay.

    I've got a pair, still in packaging. Bought them by chance a year something ago. They are going on my rig next! Good to know they hold up, thank you!

    Aren't they way to heavy though? I know they are durable but what about the weight?
    Also what the difference with the wellgo v6 copy ?

    DMR V6 weight = 327g per pair

    Wellgo V8 pedals = 575g per pair

    the Wellgos are metal, DMR V6 are Nylon (hard plastic like)

    Oh didn't knew they were nylon. I just googled them. But they don't have metal pins do they?

    They don't, and for me that's the whole point!

    They do, when hit against a hard obstacle at speed. I just don't have many rock gardens around here. The benefits are they don't eat your soles, shins, and calves. I even quit using shin guards! And they don't cost nearly as much as fancier pedals.

    I'm running these for what, 4 years now? Since 2013 I think.
    Rivera Thermo Pedal - Kore Components

    That's on a rigid singlespeed in a mildly hilly terrain though, also in the streets, on dirt jumps and pumptrack. Results may vary on an FS in anything that resembles real mountains.

    Yeah I got your point.
    I really want to upgrade my pedals and I am really over thinking about it because I dont want to lose money as I am on tight budget and need to replace some other parts on my bike.
    These I have now are not even "flats".

    Ouch. These hurt even as you simply stand on them.

    They look worse than they are. I am spending some money on different things now but when I have some money to spend I will buy a pair of electrons (probably).
    Random(ish) question. Any reviews on the Shimano saints? They are the cheapest big brand aluminium pedal for 50 euro.

    Shimano XT & Saint
    Platform Pedal Shootout news from Interbike 2017 IB17:

    Historically, Shimano moves slower than most when it comes to their pedal line, they set and forget. The whole thin and wide concept evaded their attention, until now - Shimano clearly responded:



    The above image is the XT 8040 pedal, so new it's not on the site just yet.

    Aalready featured in Shimano literature, the Saint PD-M828 is a brother in the lineup and has the distinctive machined edges, FORE-AFT CONCAVE shape, platform size of 105x109 - but - it's a porker nearly 500g and immediately eliminated from any suitable choice, sorry.
