    I've been using my DMR vaults for a few rides now and they are immense, so much grip, I use Superstar NANO's on my hardtail, after reading so many 'They feel like they're stuck to your feet!' comments about other pedals, I know what that means now after using the Vaults (with 5.10's), get some

    A Platform Pedal to Rule Them All?

    Burgtec's look a bit chunky. The Twenty6's were a find! Your mileage may vary, but having to wear 5.10 or otherwise specific shoes for the platforms defeats the purpose of platforms. You may as well go clipless. That was the turn off about going clipless on my MTB SS because I prefer to use the MTBSS not only for singletrack off road sessions but also grocery runs and days in the park. Any shoe goes. P.S. There is no best platform pedal just like there is no best tire. Lots of variables, your mileage may vary.

    Now, back to the platform pedals.

    Burgtec look chunky for me thats what I like but still very comparable to most, for me I like the more industrial look than the flashy looks of t6 and some others but thats a personal thing and an experience thing, Ive had my fair share of flats to find what suits me.

    From DIRT @ FT Bill nice
    http://dirt.mpora.com/news/fort-will.../attachment/k/





    Speccs
    Colours: Black, silver, snow camo, red, purple, blue
    Huge surface area & pin design ensure grip when you need it most
    22mm thin pedal profile
    Easy to remove pins
    Pin has 4mm diameter and is diamond knurled for added traction
    1.5mm Dish allows your feet to sit into the pedal, increasing grip
    Fully CNCed pedal body machine from aircraft grade 204 2TG Aluminium billet
    Unique pedal body design allows all pins to be removed
    Weight 550g with steel axles. With Ti axles To be confirmed
    Titanium axles available from mid December 09

    This is what I like most
    Super strong axles for maximum power transfer from rider to bike
    Dual sealed bearing arrangement for smoother running
    3-Stage process on axle: plasma coating, nickel-plating, titanium nitriding
    Axles made from the finest EN24 T steel
    Fully serviceable every part is replaceable
    Maintenance made easy. Simple design allows for easy pedal repairs

    Probably not for everyone, DX or WahWahs Decoys etc are hard to beat on price for performance, but I trust these fully Ive never had a failure ever, can't say that about many.

    I like pedals from a bmx company called " profile racing"
    There gas pedals are great with replacable been and they grip well to any shoe.
    Also, they are made in U.S.A.

    I've used the DMR and they are strong but after now using the NukeProof Alum/Ti flats with removeable Hex pins...no contest. But it's all personal prefs too. These, as I said before are for the wifey but, (being a typical guy, I ride her bike as much as she does he he) I've used her bike in tricks and naff DH sections with great stability and flow. The pedals do not spin too freely so that when you need to leave the pedals, its predictable where they are when you left them.

    Hey tubular, yeah you'd think so, I swapped one ride for a day for some new DXs I just had lying around to see how it'd be.

    I've never shredded my shins on the Burgtec's and always I wear knee TLD Tbones, first ride on the DX's wearing 5:10s slipped off on gap jump mid air and proceeded to get shin rash on landing.

    Prompty put my Burgtec's back on an not had an slip since lol will never do that again haha lesson learnt @ me BTs forever for me.

    Is the Deity Decoy 2.0 supposed to be an upgrade from the orginal Deity Decoy? It has 8 pins instead of 10.

    I can't see how this can be an improvement

I had no real complaints about my previous pedals (Wahwahs), but got the Vaults for a bit of extra bling - with regards to grip they are better than the Wahwahs, and they also feel very neutral and easy to get used to. They seem easier to "nail" the foot position on, especially when you get back on after dabbing or whatever. They give a more "cupped" (concave) feel compared to the Wahwahs - like your foot sinks into them a bit.

    I'll have to get back to you the durability. They do give off an impression of quality. They don't spin very easily, but it's not like they noticably drag either. Off to the French Alps shortly, that should help with the durability testing.

    Cool-blue Rhythm KCNC Taiwan puttin' out new product

    @Hutch: Echo TR platform appear like Atomlab Trail Kings except the Echo's have additional machined out windows in the pedal ends. Not bad!

    Was browsing Platform Pedals and found KCNC Taiwan busting out some unique designs. Wouldn't rock them due to durability concerns (weight) but thought the thread would be interested.

    Photos by simplicity-cycle Hong Kong, specs as follows:

    KCNC Steady Full CNC Platform Pedals, 6061 Aluminum platform, spindle Stainless Steel Cartridge and Needle Bushing for bearings, Weight: 326g/pair

    KCNC Knife pedals for road (not MTB) at sub 200 grams.

    I've been on the HT 11mm thick pedals for a month or so now and can say that thay feel great under your feet and have held up well so far. They are so thin that I have noticed a decrease in rock strikes compared to other 'low profile' pedals I have used.
    Super light too for being steel/alum, right about 375 grams a pair.

    +1 I've got the AE-01 with Ti spindle and they've been awesome! Still relatively new, but 2 days in Whistler, 3 in Winter Park, and 3 in Telluride and not a single issue. Though they are paper thin, they still manage to have a concave feel courtesy of the long pins. I like them a lot! Well under 300g too!

    I just ordered Syncros Crux pedals. The grip and bearing longevity convinced me after reading some reviews. Let's see how do I personally like those pedals.

    Older Atomlab Aircorps were my favorites for long time, but I have to change those to newer Aircorps after destroying pedal bodies to rocks. The newer Aircorps with only bushings, no bearings at all, were dissapointment. After one week of extremely dusty conditions in Spain the bushings were totally destroyed. Seals were insufficient I think. I might try to rebuild those with some modified seals. Thought grip of these latest model Aircorps were really good.
    I love the smell of the TF2 chain lube in the morning.

    Add another to the mix

    See article:
    http://www.pinkbike.com/news/Special...Crankworx.html

    Looks like a good design w/lots of race testing already!


    And an amusing (posted) comment from the article:

    Just need some shoes that will survive a season with these, my 510's ran away on their own as soon as I said I wanted a set of these pedals.

    Exposed spindle could rub against shoe, negating any weight savings. Also, spindle is more vulnerable. I'd destroy the AE-02.

    Lighter true, but not as thin. I don't see the exposed axle being a negitive at all, but I love how thin the AE-01s are.

    hard to beat the thin feeling of the Canfield Crampons. You can really feel the push/pull effect this has on your pedal strokes. When using the tall pedal spikes, the spindle cannot be felt. This is a great way to lower your COG on your bike.

    ^ Hell no, that pedal is not worth $270....

    There should be some kind of cutoff after the $150 amount. If a manufacturer can't engineer a set of pedals to cost less than $150, then their design probably shouldn't be taken seriously.

    After a week of VERY muddy conditions in Les Portes du Soleil, I'm very impressed with the Vaults. Very grippy in the slop, and seem to have come off no worse for wear (except the color which has gone from the pins...which was to be expected I think...).

    Your statistic is irrelevant without usage and weather conditions, among other things. Unless of course you meant they lasted 6 years in your closet.

    Interesting on how many re-branded Wellgo pedals there are, and have been posted. That aside, pedal choices really boil down to aesthetic preferences, and many will choose form over function. For me, I'm quite interested in that VP Concept uber-flat pedal....anyone know when that will be out?

    Azonic 420s... I'm not finding these very sticky at all!

    Went back to the old Azonic A Frams (?) and find they're WAY grippier than the 420s.

    Crampons are next on my list.
    Naysayers never apologize. Critics go to their grave thinking everyone else is wrong.

    I used to use the 420's as well and agree, they suck as far as grip goes. Of course I didn't realize it until I tried some Deity Decoys which were great.
    Now I'm on Straitlines which make the Deity pedals seem like the 420's.
    Straitlines kick butt!

    All of the ultra thin pedals coming out that make use of a large single bearing next to the crank seem like trouble. I just don't see this design working over the long haul. In fact, I have been riding one in particular for a while and the drive side keeps developing play and then making a loud clicking sound.
    I think a pedal needs bearings on both sides of the spindle to distribute the load. The specialized pedal seems like a good solution.

    Forte Convert?

    I've been using Wellgo MG-1 magnesium pedals since 2002, 375g/pair. Weight is a factor for me, & this solution is great.

    I recently got a low=profile Forte Convert (on sale for $45):

    Forté Convert Platform Pedals - Mountain Bike Pedals



    But, they're heavier at 470g/pair. Are they in fact made by another mfr?

    You can still get MG-1 for ~$35 shipped. I need some platforms for some used bikes I just got, & it looks like MG-1 is the way to go. In terms of performance/price.

    Anyone know of any low price-point platform pedals, without sacrificing too much performance? Kona Jack **** go for $19.99 at Cambriabike:

    Skip any aluminum pedals with non-removable pins, these have ZERO grip. Like bolting a block of ice to your cranks.

    Plastic pedals seem to be the latest craze with BMXers. Quite light, dirt cheap, and apparently even fairly grippy as long as it is dry. Obviously not very durable though.

    Other than that, get the cheap wellgo "V8 copy" with loose ball bearings for under $20.
    They require some maintenance to keep them going, but they are grippy enough. Most models are around 500-550g/pair.

    I'm using the specialized p series pedals for 20$ and they have been working great with 5.10's. The grooves in the pedal give extra grip. I've just been using them for chair lift runs and it's still easy to reposition your foot in a pinch if you need to.

    Yep, they're made by HT.

    Personally I'm sticking with the pedals I have (which includes one set of Converts) until HT's AE01 pedals come out.

    Cool-blue Rhythm Interbike 2011 platform flat pedal offerings

    Some high end pedals seen at Interbike 2011 via Pinkbike: Twenty6 and Bare Bones. The Bare Bones appears to be an identical shape (different colors) to the design Atomlab was pimpin' around last year. Still, the stats are legit:

    I don't quite understand all the "bling" pedals. Are you only meant to ride those indoors, and with no shoes on?

    lelebebbel, you dont need to understand it because you arent the type of customer these companies designed these bling pedals for. Plenty of others will as attested in the amount of interest. And I wouldnt want to ride any flat pedal without shoes like you ask; those pins dont exactly mesh well with human flesh. They dont call these pedals "shinburgers" without reason.

    Sold. I can get two pairs of MG-1s from ebay for the price of one pair at CBO. Sorry CBO. I'll watch for HT's Nano AN01. Brand name isn't that important to me.

    After riding them for a week or so, I can now officially say that Canfield Crampons are the bees knees.
    These are my first thin pedals and it is just amazing. I don't notice a difference when pedalling, but I do notice the additional clearance, and the improved grip (they won't rotate out from under your feet and smash you in the calves like thicker pedals can).
    I'm not buying thick pedals ever again.



    Beyond that they are also super grippy, have a large platform with grub-screw style pins that can still be screwed in from the back, and they are light (386g/pair with long pins installed) without dodgy magnesium or expensive titanium parts.


    My previous flat pedals include Tioga SF-MX Pros (which I still have), different Wellgos including the Mags, DMR V8s and Ringle ZuZus, and the Crampons beat all of them hands down.

    I may have to get a second set for my hardtail....

    We the people ... Platform Pedals from Tioga and Syntace

    ducj: good find on the Tioga's, thanks. Those are so ugly with the bearing assembly. Why not just crampons?

    morandi: sweet find on the Syntace's, thanks! But for $280 USD, wow!? Specs of function and looks are much like the competition for thin platform pedals. Lots of pins for grip, that's for sure.

    I still want to try a pair of crampons, but after just a little cruising around on my Point 1 Podiums, I prefer the feel of their platforms to the prerunners. I never compared them side by side, but the Podiums are definitely easier place my foot. With the prerunners, I had a tendency to stand too close to the crankarm, as there's not enough of a pronounced hump there.

    Re the premium bmx pedal, they are not that thin and lack grip. Not very usefull to the MTB world, fine on the bmx track/ dirt jumps.

    The HTs are my first choice, but you can't go wrong with the Point Ones either. The new (2nd gen) Canfield Crampons look promising.

    Loaded platform flat pedal aka HT Rebrand again

    Hope to find someone posting review or photos of the 2nd generation Crampons. HT has been hitting hard here in the Bay Area thanks to Encina Bicycles and RideSFO. See the coverage of the SF Bike Expo that went down last weekend with the AT Showdown DJ comp. Another HT pedal re-brand appears from lurking (source: MTBR SF Bike Expo Coverage)

    I think the only difference between the V1 and V2 Crampon is that for V2 the pins near the spindles were removed and are replaced by small bumps.
    These were purchased in late July of 2011 so I think they are the V2 versions.
    So far I really like the thinness of the pedals except that for me, they squeak(from the shoe rubbing on the spindle) after pedaling for a while and it drives me nuts when I"m riding where its a 40+ minute grind up hill and the pedals are going squeak squeak squeak the whole way. Re-positioning my feet some times will get rid of the noise for a while but comes back eventually and I have to move my feet again. I'm using all long pins with 5.10 spitfire shoes. My crampons with long pins weighs about 194 grams per pedal




    Also got a pair of HT components MN-01 which is the same design(and most likely all manufactured by HT) as Superstar Nano, original Deity Decoy, Nukeproof Neutron but in Magnesium body/CroMo spindle. The MN-01 weigh 180 grams per pedal. You can get titainum spindles from superstar to get the weight down to about 150 grams per pedal.


    Here is a shot of Crampons|HT MN-01|Wellgo MG-1 for thickness comparison.



    Also just pre-ordered a pair of Da bomb bare bone pedals(similar to HT AE-01) from CRC. Will update again when I actually get them.

    you don't know what you're talking about. and come off sounding like a jackass.

    I have canfield pedals. I love them. If they die, I'll buy a new set. They're 2 years old and going strong. But they were hardly the first thin pedal out there. The first ones I heard of were the flypapers. Which looked alot like the ones by VP that you were bashing. Except they used a bigger bearing, that fit in on both sides if the crank, and needed a custom drilled crank that nobody wanted (I think it was a gravity crank? don't totally remember). They were b1tching, aside from needing a custom super heavy hunk of junk crank. Nobody bought them because the price tag on them was like 370 dollars, + Crank (that nobody wanted to run).

    The problem was, in order to run a pedal without an axle, so to speak, you need to massively reinforce the bearings and its still best to run it with two bearing sets. The Flypapers got around that by having bearings mounted on both sides of the crank. But, like mentioned nobody in their right mind wanted to run a set of gravity GAP cranks.

    Then the CF bros realized that the thin pedal idea was awesome, but people wanted to run std cranks. So they thinned up the pedal, shaped it like a pringle, slapped an exposed tapered axle, and called it a day. It is a great pedal design. But they weren't the first wafer thin pedals. And these VP's look alot thinner.

    I'm curious to see how the VP's handle. I guess they use a double bearing right next to the crank that is super short, and oversized the fyck out of it. I'm interested to see if people break them left and right. If they hold up, I'll probably buy a set.

    Been on these pedals since Dec. and as soon as available, all of my riding buddies are going to be getting pairs as well as me for my other bikes. I held off on the older style because of the outer hump but am sold on the thin and have nothing but good to say about the functionality of these. They are working on production details and dates but weights sounding like they will be very sweet/favorable numbers. A decent amount lighter than the Point 1 pedal.

    If I got the blessing of the Canfield Brothers, I would gladly share all the photos I have or take any you requested. Part of the deal when I got them was to keep it quiet until they had an official release. I can tell you that they are really that thin and have no bulge. Grip and weight is fantastic, I can never be satisfied with a standard thickness pedal again.

    I didn't post the pictures, just commented on how awesome they are. I am like a viral marketeer of sorts really, picture a less gay swashbuckle looking guy than Johnny Depp
    s character. Plus, the Canfields better be prepared for a struggle (or at least see a grown man cry) if they want them back.
