    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

    Just had a couple of proper rides on them so far, but initial impressions are very good. 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:

    marvelus10 (on pinkbike)
    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.
