    They are best platforms I have used. They cradle and support your feet perfectly. I would highly recommend removing the 4 pins on each side of the axle. They grip and feel even better.
    My search is finally over.

    yep - on*one has an AE-01 copy/rebrand on the way as well.

    Its getting late in Taiwan, and Ive got them taking pictures of new On-One Thinny Pedals. Shed Fire : Designing for On-One, Titus and Planet X from Calderdale.

    yup the da bombs definitely looks like the HT AE-01 pedals. I only got them since they were cheaper than the HTs.

    Just checked on-one's UK website. Thinny available now for 109.86+ $37.91 shipping to the US. So looks like the da bombs are still slightly cheaper($120.47 with free shipping to the US from CRC)

    i thought i read somewhere that they are supposed to be around $90 US once they are available through the on*one/titus US website.

    Haven't posted in this thread in awhile but I've only noticed a couple post about the Atomlab Pimplite WRX Pedals and was wondering if anyone is running them as i'm looking to replace my current set up. Here's a picture of them.

    Everyone who has them says the same thing! I love wide/big platforms as I have big feet. I will try them with pins and without those four pins and will post back when I get the chance.

    The On-One Thinnys were suppose to have been 39 pounds sterling, which was about $59 when I talked with Brant Richards, but HT Components wouldn't let them sell for so little hence the big price increase from the original proposed price.

    FWIW, you can get the HT EVO AE01 for $119 + shipping in the USA fullertonbicycle.com, I picked up a slightly used set for less and can't wait to try them out, they sure look thin compared to the Forte Convert and Kona Wah Wah I've been accustomed to before.

    Just picked up a pair of the HT AE01s... very nice pedal. Only complaint I have is that they use two different styles of pins... that's a bit of a PITA when it comes time to source replacements.

    I just installed these Amps and love em so far! They could be a little more free spinning though. @ gretch, I replaced the stock pins with a bit longer and better grabbing stainless steel set screws that I purchased at my local hardware store... MUCH better than any stock pins. It came down to the Amps, Spikes and the HT AE01s, all nice pedals!

    Does anyone know anything about these Wellgo pedals?


    Just noticed them on the Wellgo website. Looks like a short tapered axle with a small DU bushing and a large inboard sealed bearing. Claimed weight 315g with a 114x102 platform.

    Do these pedals actually exist and are they any good?

    Easily the best platform pedal I've used. It'a HUGE and oozes grip. I've since taken out the 4 pins near the axle and just like morandi said the pedals grip more. I did have quite a few more pedal strikes than usual but I think in time I will get used to their dimensions a bit more. Very satisfied here.

    My Spanks just turned up. I was very tempted by the sale that on-one ^^ had on their Thinnys earlier this week. But decided to stay with my original Spike order.

    Much bigger platform on the Spikes compared to the MG-1's I took off. Nice looking pedal, might be a few weeks before they get ridden in anger on my DH bike though.

    What sale? How much were they? They are now discontinued on the site.

    They are the bomb!!!
    I was going to wait for the new Specialized pedals to come out, but with the Vaults I don't really care about them anymore.

    Those Vaults look nice! I'm finding that there are diminishing returns when going to smaller and smaller pedals in an effort to reduce pedal strikes. The Straitline AMPs on my Enduro are already taking some good hits and those are about the smallest pedal I have ever run. I'm about ready to give up and go to a big pedal for the comfort with my big feet!

    Ive been usin Vaults for about 6 months. Strange pedals. I dont notice them at all when riding. I put my foot down and it just stays there. I can concetrate to other things while riding.

    I came across a video of the DMR Vault Service Video and it has me concerned. The guy in the video says the pedals use a 686ZZ bearing and a Nylon bushing. He specifically says it is not a DU bushing. The concern comes from the 686ZZ bearing which has a dynamic load rating of 1,100 N (247 lbf) and a static load rating of 440 N (99 lbf). So let's say my 265lb self is standing and pedaling up a hill. There should be some load sharing between the bearing and bushing, but it's conceivable that I could generate greater force than the bearing is rated for, especially in a stall or near stall condition. Has anyone had a bearing failure with these pedals? I'm a bit gun-shy since destroying bearings in a Loaded Precision AmX pedal already this year.

    What did those set you back? There must be a weight limit for the ti axles?

    An equally stupid 280 w/tax. there is no posted weight limit on the box or web site that I could find...but it's possible I missed it. LBS/pro racer sales guy said 300lbs. Not sure if I totally buy that number.

    I tried taking my questions about the bearings in the DMR Vault pedals to DMR directly. Their response essentially boiled down to; "Don't worry about it." Very much an insufficient answer in my book (are there any actual engineers in the bicycle industry??). I like the sounds of the size of that pedal so it's disappointing to see that the bearings likely wouldn't survive my riding.

    Has anyone seen (or better yet, pedaled on) the Funn Funndamental pedals? They apparently employ a needle bearing and have a grease port. They sound good, but there is very little info out there and there are no platform dimensions to be found.

    I can almost guarantee you won't have any problems with the Vaults. I'm a 220lb gorilla and I have abused the daylights out of them.

    Just get the Vaults and be done with it. You won't regret it. Just keep my username handy as I know one of my friends will buy them off you in a jiffy.

    Would he be interested in a set of AMP's?

    The Vaults are tempting, but I'm having a hard time with that bearing. I am a mechanical engineer so it's extra hard to ignore something that seems like such an obvious design flaw to me.

    DMR have been making quality pedals (probably considered benchmark even in some countries) forever. I have a very hard time seeing them design something so "obviously" flawed...

    Having now been on my Vaults since June 2010, I have no trouble stating that they are definitely up for abuse (I'm about 200lbs, and I ride pretty hard). In addition to burly, they are also very grippy, and I love the shape and feel of them. Seriously has to be one of the contenders for the "best flat pedal" award...(as subjective as that will always be).

    That made me think of the quote, "Past performance does not guarantee future results." I'm sure they have made plenty of good pedals. I just can't get past the fact that they use a bearing with such low load capacity in such a high load part.

    The size and shape are definitely what draw me to the Vault. The AMPs are really bordering on being too small for my size 13's and the size doesn't seem to drastically reduce pedal strikes.

    Na, one look at my pedals and people want to try them out. I'm wear a size 13 shoe, weigh 200lbs here and ride aggressively. I can now focus on other things rather than trying to get a solid stance and grip.

    I never said it did. I said that I find it hard to believe that a company with such a track record would make such an "obvious" design mistake. In other words, I am sort of doubting it is so "obvious"... .
    Furthermore, I'm also offering an observation based on the past 8 months of actually riding the pedal, not "future results"...

    Hey if you want a flat and wide pedal which has been around a long time and has no "obvious" design flaws, the Kona Wah-wah is a great pedal (and there's TONS of positive reviews, with people riding the same pair for years - with very little evidence of any failures). + they're quite cheap. I rode 'em for 2+ years until switching to the Vaults.

    Might have to pick these up when they drop.

    Prototype Spike pedal details:

    Retains the shape of the existing Spike pedal
    Uses two bushings on the axle, rather than the bushing and bearing that the more expensive version uses
    Less CNC'ing on the body, to reduce production costs
    Only available in black (the more expensive version is available in a range of colour options)
    Should weigh less than 400 grams for the pair
    MSRP $99

    I spoke with these guys yesterday, they had a set in 'raw' for $250.

    Fullerton Bicycle - Full service bike store in Fullerton, CA and Buena Park, CA

    I'm toying with the idea of selling my black HT AE01 EVO (never used by me, guy I bought them from used them once, look new) for a pair in the polished silver, to match the bike better.

    Ti is expensive. Any pedal, whether flats or clipless using Ti and are under 300 grams will cost over $200. (In fact, Ti/Carbon road pedals will set you back $400.) In the case of flats, customers have asked for lighter pedals and companies are responding by providing them. It's simply another option and folks who wish to pay the extra money for a lighter pedal made with Ti can do so. As an aside, margins or *very* thin on the pedals made with Ti, due to the cost of material and the fact that fewer are produced (no economies of scale benefit).

    Superflat Wellgo B181

    In the case of Wellgo this is true for the model "B181" to: This is made ​​of forged aluminum and super slim builds. In order to crank out a ball bearing provides for easy and precise operation, then the pedal body tapers to 10 mm. What Wellgo with lasered scale again underscores. Weight 315 grams

    Can we expect a On-One version of these soon?

    Did you ride the Thinnys? How do they compare?

    The Wellgo's pin placement and pin type isn't "right" so we are working (with a drill) on modifications.

    We'll see what alts we can do within their mold confines, and then see where we end up.

    I rode them this afternoon and liked a lot of the things about them, but they aren't as secure as Thinnys as they come box stock.

    I have just noticed those new flat pedals from OnOFF. Do they look the same as HT AE01? For sure.
    Interesting as HT are difficult to find in Europa. ANd cheaper.

    Has anyone fitted a pair of Spank Spikes to carbon cranks with the Raceface Boots fitted. The oversized inboard bearing seems to sit soooo close to the crank arm..!?!

    In Europa, the AE01 seems only available in Slovakia & Rumania. Strange.
    I saw the Onoff on this link.

    BIKE mag had a preview of the new version of the Fyxation mesa...it now has steel pins (rather than molded plastic), and the weight only went up to 350 g. retail $60. no idea when they are coming out...

    There's also a steel pinned version of these.
    And on HT site, there are 2 Nano-P models, one with molded pins (PA12), the other with steel ones (PA12A).

    I just got a pair of black HT AN03s today for $90. What a world of difference from the stock pedals (2010 Specialized Hardrock)! More grip, more surface area, more style, and less weight! Couldn't be happier with them. I'd post a photo but I can't, since this is my first post :P

    You want traction?.... There ain't no school like old school. These aren't for everybody, steel shins come in handy too.

    I run them on all my bikes...I prefer the advantage of these over platforms...in the event of a slipped pedal....they embed straight into your shin, as opposed to raking. Oh Joy.

    The downside is they're super thick, so you have that much more chance of flipping a pedal. Ouch!

    I recently bought a set of VP vice and I do really like them. They are what I currently run on my AM/ Trail rig. It looks like the pedal in the above photo is a Hutch, definitely old skool, definitely a great pedal.

    A way back when I tried to aquire Hutch pedals and failed. I did however find a (very similar) set of JP's and rode the heck out of them for many years without issue.

    At 1 1/2" thick they're not what your looking for if you want thin, but to their credit they're the grippiest pedal i've ever run. Next to a set of Tioga sure foot 8's (that I would not recommend) for reference.

    I'll throw another vote in for the twenty6 Prerunners. If you can find them on close-out, I'd highly recommend them.

    pr0n:


    I came from a set of Wellgo M1s that I loved because they were cheap and the platform and bearing was durable, but if you caught a pin, it was done. Your only option was to retap the hole, which was a hassle.

    The twenty6 are light and tough. The pins do break, but I'd rather have that happen than have my pin holes roached and unusable. They are also making steel pins this year which are supposed to be tougher than the aluminum pins offered. Plus, the twenty6 bits are blingy, awesome and made in the US.

    Another busted DMR Vault:




    I have experience with the following platform pedals, in chronological order:

    Shimano PD-MX30. Like the shape, good internals, don't like how vulnerable the pins are, and with short pins there's not much grip.

    Nukeproof Neutron. Liked the grip and the clearance better than MX30s, but didn't like platform shape.

    NS Aerial 2009. (now called Aerial Pro) Liked almost everything about them, but grip could be better. They develop play, I don't care about it.

    Echo TR 2011. Ran them with blunt-shaped aluminum socket style pins. Platform shape in between Neutrons and Aerials. Not the best grip, but okay. Finally broke drive side axle by metal fatigue.

    Straitline AMP with Ti spindles. Like just about everything about them so far. Don't care about the drag (it's lost in Hammerschmidt drag anyway). They can self unthread, must watch out for that.

    The rider who broke it only commented that it happened for no serious reason (probably meaning that he expected much more strength from them). He only rode them no more than 1 month and says also that before one broke completely, the pedals dented and deformed easily from clipping small stuff.

    I translated this from a thread dedicated to Straitline AMP pedals on a local site.

    Lol, copy of the Fixation Mesa pedals I have except those are copies of the Mesa MP, I rather have just the plain Mesa with the plastic studs over the screws as I already have a 9 hole scar in my shin from screws,,..

    Most likely neither Fyxation Mesa nor Nukeproof Electron are copied from each other. They are both variants of HT plastic pedals, made by HT for Fyxation and Nukeproof.

    Flat Pedal Test by MBR Magazine

    This link from Point 1 Racing's blog post on March 29th, 2012 to MBR magazine circa October 2010: Point One Newsfeed: MBR Flat Pedal Test

    I recall when Nano Superstar's were rated highly due to this magazine. I wonder if MBR stands behind that verdict to this day???

    (p.s. this thread "Platform Pedal Shootout..." started in April 2010 here on MTBR, now features over 100,000 views, thanks for your input and the everlasting persuit of the best platform pedal!)

    No Squeaks at all!! which was something I was concerned about buying these. I spoke to CRC prior to purchase and they confirmed they were the 2012 version with a moded nut/washer arangement.

    so far so good..;-)

    Good to hear about the Spikes! After following this thread, in my opinion the top 3 flats are

    Straitline Amps
    Spikes
    HT AE01s

    I chose the Amps of course and added my own set screws! (another pic in case someone missed it!)

    After a couple of summers my Point One's have taken a lot of abuse and been great but I was getting tired of hacksawing off bent or mangled pins and then chasing the threads so I got some Twenty6 pins and drilled and tapped the Point One pedals to accept them. After a month of riding them this way I've been loving it. If I snap a pin off it's easy to remove what's left and replace it with just an allen key. No more cutting and chasing threads

    That's because you were using the junk aluminum pins in your Point Ones. Never had that prob with the steel versions. You do realize they have both available right?

    They came with the steel pins and I never gave them a chance. Figured I'd rather have the aluminum shear or bend then the steel grab and stop me on a rock. I guess I should have tried them. Now it's off to have some fun in the rain and mud.
