    Idea! Platform Pedal Shootout, the best flat is...

    Platform Pedal Shootout!



    As a single speed rider, I prefer the simplicity and get on and ride how you come approach. The general rule when it comes to pedals is, if you cant ride with flip flops or jack purcells, your bike is a failure.

    Figured I could pop this in any category like singlespeed or 29er but downhill freeride riders are the most renown for rocking platform pedals in even the most intense, dangerous gravity induced situations successfully.

    While weight is often shaved and marketed in connection points on the bike (saddle, handlebar, pedals), these are the most important to me to feel solid to the rider. Saving weight elsewhere is a better move 'cause the solid feel equals confidence.

    I reviewed four foundational pedals. While all superb pedals, I found the winner - the Sunline V-One platform pedal.



    Atomlab Trailking: an innovative design that has been copied by everyone, the 17mm thin crowd got its inspiration from this pedal. Sweet looks, my favorite in the looks department, CNC machined minimal with a fantastic shape and really looks tits mounted to a single speed and is thinnest body of the lot. Due to DU bushings (which are the least desirable), it develops play quite easily, so have a stash of DU bushings for replacements and the problem is solved. Atomlab is good about providing these replacements and they're fast, simple to replace with an allen key. The performance is least of the lot due to pin placement, flat body, and DU bushings - my foot has slipped jumping off street curbs! Studs did rip a number of holes and lines into my shins causing permanent scarring and for the lackluster amount of grip they provide, wasn't worth it. The newer Pimp and Pimplite mag pedals have resolved the DU bushing issue with sealed bearings while staying with a similar shape. 540g pair, $100

    Easton Flatboy: a design that is over ten years old! Classic, beefy, concave and grippy. Comes in only ano black, matches your Easton cockpit. A bit boring as the design hasn't changed for decade - meaning the pedal works well! 572g pair, $75

    Syncros Mental Stainless Steel: the rawest of the bunch, made of stainless steel versus aluminum like the others. Also like the fact that you dont see rebrands of this pedal 'cause they're so ugly, no one is going to copy them. Random non-bike people will ask you about the pedals. A whopping weight penalty, almost double that of the other pedals, but it's easily justified as these just are the last to break from any ravishing hit or scrape. I treat them badly and they look identical to new. I really like the way these spin and the heaviness works by providing a solid connection to the bike. Lifetime warranty on the bodies to prove it! 800g pair, $80

    Sunline V-One: Solved the problems of the Atomlab Trailkings by using loaded sealed bearings, concave body, and added the machined pyramids from the Brooklyn Machine Works Veggie Burgers and notorious Shin Burger pedals. When the stud screws are installed on top of the pyramids, your foot is not slipping, at all. Best grip of the lot. Anodized gunmetal blue titanium to match the Sunline V-One cockpit. Also very close to the Hope Tech X2 Pro Mini carbon fiber edition anodization. 580g pair, $120

    MTBR reviews 5 stars for the V-One's: http://content.mtbr.com/cat/drivetra...92_135crx.aspx



    This shootout comparison test is missing some serious talent, help me fill that in, MTBR members!



    Shimano DX, Straitline, Burgtec Penthouse, Odyssey Trailmix, DMR V12, NYC Freeride Glory Hole...



    Brooklyn Machine Works (CNC) Veggie Burger: http://www.mtbr.com/cat/drivetrain/p...65_135crx.aspx

    Canfield Brothers Crampon: Canfield Crampons 6 month review = they are solid

    Point One Racing Podium: Point One Racing Podium Pedals short review



    Answer Rove FR, Nukeproof Proton, Deity Decoy and the lot of re-branded HT Components (Taiwan) pedals. Hey, if you can get the HT originals for fifty bones with titanium spindles at under 300g, who's to say?...

    The Atomlab Trailkings aren't flat, they are concave. I agree with the lack of traction possibility...which is why I sold them NIB for the Atomlab Aircorp that has more pins, and the same profile/concave body.

    Until you get the straitline pedals into this review, sorry, no good

    Nah seriously, include the strait's, IMO best flat pedal you can get, also for bang for you buck, cant go past Kona Wah Wah's

    NickM2R: bring it on! Where's the review at for the Straitlines?

    And with the Kona Wah Wah's, they're generic, nothing against Kona, I saw Kona pedals bite Atomlabs design, see above picture of the HT pedals, they make the Kona's, the Deity, the Nukeproof, the NC-17, the...you name it.

    pedals are one of those things that, in my opinion, there are so many GOOD choices, and everyone has their personal preference, that its almost impossible to get a unbiased straight review.

    I haven't ever liked any of the atomlabs i have owned.

    The aircorps blew up on the trail. The pedal and bushing went flying into the bushes. We had to try to zip tie the pedal to the axle which was still left in the crank arm.

    The trailkings lack pins and they get a lot of play in them. They are also pretty heavy

    my favorites

    Canfield crampons - here is my review of them http://mtbgeartech.com/blog/canfield...-pedals-review

    Corsair - but who knows if they will still make them since atomlab bought them out. im not sure if they actually ever were released. I just happened to know a guy who knew a guy.....

    Deity decoys - best pedals for the money, lightish and good traction.

    would love to try

    So far I like my atomlab pimplites. Large smooth and light. Straightlines are slightly overpriced in my opinon but super durable and easy to work on. I've taken apart a couple of sets, cleaned them and thrown on some lube, going good as new.
    I will say though, come may, I'm getting a set of diety's. Decoy 2.0 and the LT will both be coming out.

    I have used a few pedals and ride some very knarly rockgardens and pedals take
    a beating. So far none beat the Straitline pedals.

    Pedals used are
    Straitline...great grip and very durable, can't ask for more

    50/50xx....so far the worst made pedal i have used...lasted 1 day
    and once fixed lasted 3 days...gave them to my 10 year old to use

    Kona Jackshit.....Not bad for a cheaper pedal. They slipped a bit but lasted.

    BMW Shinburgers....Grippy as long as it wasn't muddy out...but very heavy


    Cheers

    i used to buy mg1's every like 6 months because they were so cheap, but after finally breaking down and buying the point1's i can tell you that i will never go back. you instantly feel so much more stable on the bike. it's weird. never thought I would make that much of a difference, but it did. they have my vote

    Ridden BMW's Shinburgers, Wellgo's, etc etc etc.

    The pedal on all my bikes is the Sunline V1. Paired with 5.10's there is no need for anything grippier.

    Wrong. Look at the pins. The nice thing that sets the Konas (and now the newer Aircorps) appart is it isnt a little pin for traction, it is a hex bolt with a head that comes all the way through the pedal. This way the pin will bend but wont rip out taking the threads with is like on any pedal where the pins dont go all the way through. Bent pin can be cut then the rest of the bolt and head backed out... threads are ready for a new bolt. With those silly grub screw things (Deity, HT, Superstar, Nukeproof, older Aircorps, MG-1s) a good whack rips them out, leaving the threads trashed and you with one less place to put a pin. Its the little details that make the difference and this is the one triat I would never sacrifice with pedals. Just my .02

    I've only had about 3 rides on my new answer rove pedals, but so far I've got nothing bad to say about them. The way I look at it is if I can have a ride and not notice my (insert bike part here) then its doing its job. Plus I run 5.10 shoes and they make just about any platform pedal have great grip. The CrankBros 5050xx I was running last year seemed to have too much grip with my 5.10s and couldnt move my foot at all, and the 5050s where crap!

    I am thrilled with my Point One Podium pedals.

    They are wider that any other pedals I have used, thinner, lighter, more grip, etc. I really like that they are flush with the crank arms.

    I have been using them for 3 months now and I am VERY happy with them.

    Nice review

    But without the Penthouse especially the new MK111s its not complete!

    Over 250g of the original which is awesome and a 3yr warranty yep 3 years no BS.

    500gr for steel axle and 460 for Ti eek..

    22mm thick profile much lower than my MK 2s which would be nice but I aint complaining, this review is not complete e.g does not compute. e.g not rarking on the reviewer or review top stuff hard to review all lol be nice huh!

    I love my PH Burtec's they just rock, DXs are strong for what they offer too, do like those Point ones but I'm sticking to the Penthouse, with a name like that why change right

    Flats Ive owned.

    CB 50/50 - Xs liked em at the time for a short time they crapped out easily but did like the profile at the time combined with my 5:10s any other shoe don;t think they'd cut it.

    DMR V12s awesome, great bearings, for me though the platform for me was too small, I have wide big feet, i jst fit the 5;10 biggest shoe lol.

    Shimano DXs again almost too small but have loved this pedal, like others have said combo of small and long pins depending on what suits u is a good combo!

    Kona Jackshits, I actually loved these pedals maybe why I love the Penthouse so much, big burly and took the hits for me, while I had em they were top, heavy but loved em for DH, just love the size of the platform one of the best feature of the Burgtec.

    Atom Lab Aircorps for me **** house, the DUs crapped out early, fell apart at the time my girlfriend at the time was riding I didn't believe her lol, for the price of these things biggest disappointment sold em with the newer system felt much more secure but these put me off very low profile pedals, just did not feel secure like the reviewer above said pedals should be solid I def rate that first before pins shape etc.

    Easton Flatboys also a great pedal but as said dam heavy, but seemed durable to I lent them to another chick and never saw her or the pedals again lol, a re curring them with chicks and pedals and gloves no one gets em now but me, some people think borrowing is a gift lol..

    But I'm solid on my PHs now not sure who will go first me or them

    Burgtec Penthouse MK3 - middle ground with pretty looks?

    @trailadvent: nice, welcome input.Burgtec MK3 Penthouse's at 22mm thick vs 17mm new standard thickness and mid-weight (around Pimp Lite 500 +/-) makes the pedal overpriced (a pro) and overbuilt (another pro) but I think from the competition, there are better choices (yet another pro).

    Now in their third design, the enormous-bodied Penthouse Flats pedals are better than ever. With 250g shaved off the previous model, still weigh 550g with steel axles, a 100mm square platform machined from 204 2TG aluminium, dual sealed bearings, and a three-year warranty on both axle and body.

    I am planning on using pedals like above on my new mtb until I get familiar with riding again. Then plan to try clipless.. What is best for under $80?

    Do I need to have shin guards for some of these? Looks painful if I were to slip.......

    I would spend $200 on pedals if I thought I would keep them and not switch.

    Spend ~$100 on pedals AND ~$100 on Five Tenīs... thatīs better than a $200 pedals and regular shoes. Same as clipless, is wise to spend on both a good pair of flats AND a good pair of shoes to go with.

    I have a pair of Shimano mtb shoes to wear. I also have a set of Shimano M540's. I just want to get used to the bike first.

    I will probably upgrade shoes and clipless pedals when ready. My new bike came with a cheap clipless pedal and I want a decent flat pedal to use until ready.....

    Does anybody like the platform pedals with clipless also.. IE http://cgi.ebay.com/Crank-Brothers-M...item3efedb08b5

    +1 Been riding the Podiums for a few months and love them. Recently got a set of the Burgtec PHIII and WOW--these things are S-O-L-I-D. Ended up putting the Podiums on my trail bike (Nomad) and the Penthouse Flats on the new Delirium. Very happy thus far.

    Platform Pedals: Brooklyn Machine Works Veggieburger

    Rockin' the Veggieburgers from BMW Pharrell's interest in Brooklyn Machine Works.

    Actually LIGHTER than the Stainless Steel Syncros Mental Pedals which have the title of MOST DURABLE and HEAVIEST pedals to exist!!! Even after heavy mileage, the mentals look and perform new.



    Did they get lazy? I don't see the inside of the pedals left in raw. The whole pedal is anodized now.

    Blackspire and Dark Cycles

    Something that has not been mentioned yet - Blackspire or Dark Cycles.

    http://www.blackspire.com/qs/category/83/5952/0/0

    I have a pair of the Sub-4's. So far so good, Great traction, but not over the top. 350grams for 100.00. Pins are Thru bolt design. They are made in Canada as well


    http://www.darkcycles.com/

    I also have a pair of Dark Cycles Arachnids. Super Gripy and tough. But they have the classic set-screw pins. As well they have quite the unique look. Another made in Canada choice. 145.00 for 444grams.

    mykel: Cool update, thanks! Blackspire's product range sucks, but their pedals are series 3 and 4 pedals are AWESOME! The weights are spectacular especially since they're designed as DH gravity pedals, made in Canada is pretty cool, too. The Dark Cycles Arachnids are unique but I can see them conflicting with a number of bike build fashions.

    From Blackspire official HQ:
    270g!!!

    Pau11y: Since you asked, you can find them floating on ebay occasionally. Take a look at 260671867301, auction was around 15 bucks+shipping last time I checked.

    the nuke proof pedals and the ht pedals are the same. ht makes the pedals for nuke proof. if they have ht on it they are way cheaper.

    No one mentioned these yet...

    Platform Pedal Shootout, the best flat is...-azonic_420_pedals.jpg

    Azonic 420

    Extruded body
    CNC machined
    DU/sealed bearings
    W33 & V9 Pins
    Weight: 430g with pins (pair)

    I bought these last year, mostly because I had good luck with their A-Frame pedal, so I thought I would give these a try ( and they match my Outlaw rims ). I'm impressed. The bearings spin smooth as the day I installed them. No play, no slip, nice wide platform pedal and they take a ton of abuse. And only $75 on Pricepoint currently.

    i vote point 1 podiums - the guys are great, they are a little expensive but you get what you pay for, i ran mine all summer and they held up great, low profile, great pin placement, with 510s i didnt see a need for the longer pins, they look dope, they feel BIG because of the size of the platform which is nice on my size 12 feet - i could not be more stoked on a flat pedal...

    Pretty machined anodized pedals look killer, but personally I'd rather spend the money elsewhere. Shadow Conspiracy Ravagers work for me. Thinner than most other plastic platforms, light, and after 100+ miles holding up just fine. Granted not as super-sticky as metal pins, but more shin-friendly, and no slipping yet. Don't know how good they'd be in wet/muddy, but I don't have that here in SoCal

    in add'n to older, thick pedals (tioga etc), I own 3 pairs of modern pedals i.e. thin profile: point1 podiums, kona wah wahs, and cromo spindle prerunners.

    all 3 are good pedals; all are quite different, with pros/cons.

    - the wah-wah has a big ass platform, great for big feet, and feels amazingly secure with stealth and non-stealth rubber shoes. the weight is heavier than some of the blingy options. durability (bushing, and pedal body) has been good...mine have been hammered for 2 years now. and the price is right. the big platform size means that sometimes (rare) i get a rock strike i'm not expecting e.g. when rising forward to crank on a flat section, or other situations when the pedal is not horizontal.

    - the podium has a very thin cross section w/ no pins under the ball of foot area. Combined with the overall shape, and beveled edges, i almost never hit the rocks with these pedals. Manages to be relatively light and super tough. I think these will last a very long time. However, I don't like these pedals with non-stealth soles; not enough grip. Also, the very pronounced hump on the alu body near the spindle base means you can't position your foot in close to the crank arm. On my DH bike, that's a non-issue, but on my AM bike that gets pedalled up long-ass climbs, i much prefer to have my feet a little closer together.

    - the cromo twenty6 prerunner is a good all-round pedal. pins get mangled pretty easily. it doesn't have the thin feel of the podiums, but it does have more pins and more grip. and for a FR bike that gets pedalled uphill, these pedals are nice since you can position your foot anywhere on the pedal -- no hump. i didn't mind paying $160 for mine, but the regular retail price is kinda high for a part that you know will get beaten on. Have heard bad things about the Ti version from local riders.

    so bottom line for me is that the Podium is my favorite DH pedal, the Prerunner is my favorite AM/FR pedal, and the Kona is a great all-round pedal that I'll continue to use, and will recommend to anyone looking for a good pedal under $100.

    Austrian Platform Pedals those wacky Germans

    Some new CNC pedal work out of Austria / Germany with keywords: "FR Reset Big Fat Flat Pinking". I have a feeling we're in a new level of pedal design - less lazy slapping on brand name on the exact same pedals (made by HT & Wellgo).

    I used these for a while until I rode my buds bike with Deity Decoys on it... Mucho better grip on the Deities. I now ride Deities.

    Actually, based on reading your own review, the Wah-wah's are the best.

    Seriously - the point about the 2 pins under the ball of the foot, I think this is a small little difference that gets overlooked. Yes, this body is basically a catalogue part used by many others - BUT - I think only Kona adds the 2 pins in the middle. Don't know how big a difference this makes, but I do know that I like my Wah-wah's.

    Update: I didn't order the Blackspire Sub4. I went with Fly Ruben PC Pedals, 350gr. $15

    If I destroy them on a stair or park bench, throw away and buy another set.. Done..

    SofaKingHigh: Sweet! Wow, great build, and then the $15 pedals. I wondered what was going on with my riding crew switching to JCPC pedals (the ones sandwiched together without bearings) on their full suspension rigs. Do you have a height? I imagine those plastic pedals are a lot thicker than typical alloys since they need to add more material for strength (fiberglass polycarbonate plastic).

    Hope wellgo goes after well, blackspire design

    p.s. Did wellgo make the blackspire "made in canada" design or did they change the design 20% by flipping around elements like a lego play kit?

    Hope Wellgo MG-1: bang for the buck

    Wellgo MG-1: bang for the buck contender (why one would buy plastic test pedals over the MG1's as they're the same price point?) Similar to the Tioga MX Comp pedals, except the Wellgo's come in white silver purple and have titanium axle upgrades prevalently available.

    Best light weight pedal of the entire market, I have years with the model ask anyone!

    wow, where are you finding these for $40 a pair? I've been shopping around and can't find them for that much.
    Does that include tax and shipping, too?
    Thanks.

    mowerman: eslay is your friend. I'm finding them for sub-$30 shipped. At that price, it blows away any disposable type BMX pedal like the Ruben, Odyssey, Demo PC, etc.

    sofakinghigh, true! The guys on my weekly ride roll those JCPC pedals which are plastic and bearingless, with the gold screw nut hardware and plastic bodies but I think their retail is $50?! Most of the BMX plastic pedals are $15 but some of the more brand name pro models are $30+. Every time I think of them though, I keep seeing the plastic test pedals (the ones with orange reflectors) that come on all bikes from the LBS.

    I have a set of wah wahs. Love the shape and size and feel. Not too stoked on the small pins. Don't get me wrong the grip is more than adequate, I think I prefer the feel over larger pins, but they get bashed out really quick. The threads are so small / fine pitch / not deep and there is not much holding them into the pedal body.

    Still a good pedal but my next set will be Straitline or Point One.

    Speaking of flats. I was on a xc ride a while back where everyone had clipless except for myself. No big deal, that is common. We were geeking out about bike parts on a break until it came to pedals and the common response was "why would anyone spend more than $5 on flat pedals"... I tried to explain but quickly gave up.

    I just picked up a Turner Rail w/ Kona's. Think they're wah-wah's, but may be older. Like 'em fine but can't say I notice a big difference from my $15 Shadow's on the Hard Rock. Kinda like running shoes, if I don't notice them, no problem! Diggin the looks of those profile's ilna's getting, but the $$$, ouch!!! That said, it's obviously one killer machining job...

    currently have transition stepdowns ans wellgo mg1s. Had been really happy with the stepdowns on my am ride, but decided to go cheaper for a set for the dh rig. just don't really like the mg1s. pins are too short (which can be fixed with new pins, true) but the platform is just too small for my liking, and my feet aren't that big (10 1/2). For 50 bux, transtions have stood up to a lot of bashing and are good n sticky. Another pair is on order now--anyone want some lightly used mg1s?

    Happened upon a review of those Podium's where the reviewer would have liked more pegs in the center axle area. Looks like the second photo posted shows a good setup with those longer inside pegs (they're a different color too). Might bear remembering...

    I have used the Podium pedals for a season and love them. They do not have a weak area with the exception of price. My feet just stick to these pedals like glue, they lessen the amount of pedal rock strikes and have held up to many hours of harsh Platty, Diablo, Mt Snow DHing. I do not regret this purchase thats for sure.

    rockclimber, aint my money but... the dixi ebay pedals are listed at 17mm height. That's no different than the many other generic pedals in height, meaning that although they took a lot of styling cues from Crampon pedals, they are just that, the look without the function. So at $65, it's a ripoff when you could have the real thing for double that with both function and style. Again, aint my money, if you pull the trigger and guinea pig it, please post your review here for us to see.

    Idea! Point1 Podium x Brooklyn Machine Works Veggie Burger

    Just got the Point1 Podium pedals, took a shot next to the monstrous Brooklyn Machine Works Veggie Burger pedals (ebay 250719375847). Looks like there are now a pair of USA-made-CNC'd mountain bike pedals on the market! San Jose, California and Brooklyn, New York for the win!

    New question here. Yet another HT rebrand bites the dust

    HT > Deity rebranded "Decoy 2.0" > Bricklane Bikes rebranded "Flatliner"

    Gotta hand it to Deity and Bricklane, they are the pinnacle of innovation with renaming the pedals!

    Word to the wise,

    The HTi pedals I have been using on my bike (not a DH or FR rig, forgive me) have suffered greatly in the 6 short months I have been using them. They are the magnesium bodied, 17mm thick stock that looks identical to the Deity pedals pictured above. My lead foot pedal has maybe 1/3 to 1/2 of its original pins left. The holes are not drilled all the way through...probably for a reason...so the pins cannot be replaced (holes get deforemed when pin get ripped out). Sure were a nice, light, grippy, pretty set of pedals when I bought them for $67. Now I am looking at my former pedals, the Sun RIngle Zuzus to figure out why they held up so well for over 2 years. Anywho, no more hex pins for me. They are the weak point for my intended use. I am looking to give the Blackspire Sub4s a shot before I put the Zuzus back on. Anybody out there try the Blackspires yet?

    still like my transition stepdowns. 500-sumthin gs, 60 bux, indestructible for two years . . . great pin placement. not fnacy-boy thin, but can't have it all, I guess . . .

    @albeant: Good find on the Syntace NUMBERNINE platform pedals. Interesting Syntace would join the market - they are known for their F99 stems weight weenie certified. However, the price is what?! 148 Euros = $220 USD. OK, so we're talking forged 7075, sealed bearings and 348g weight. But...get the F' out of here. The sloppy forged design makes them appear like some MKS Grip King commuter pedals made by Rivendell Bicycle Works. But those are 1/4 the buy in if that.

    superstar pedals with 7mm+ pins are by far the best pedals ive come across. plus cheap, and great selection of colours.

    Those "pins" are way too long. Does your shoe even come in contact with the pedal?

    well, granted they are screws. but at 6 quid for 50 verse 25 quid per pedal for 'official' pins there was no choice.

    and no my shoe does not touch the pedal, its best that way as then mud does not build up and make the pins shorter, 6 months of running those pins and not a single pedal slip even in the wettest muddiest conditions on steep trails. just have to make sure you put your foot in the right place to start with

    I guess you haven't had your pedals stick to your shin yet... or some other body part..

    My Kona Wah Wahs are toast, developing annoying spindle play. Only times I ever found myself lacking grip with those is bouncing down some pretty serious rockgardens at speed So....

    Stickier??? Stronger??? Thinner???: Canfield Crampon or Point1 Podium. ??

    They're awesome The quality for the price is fantastic! I've had HTs, Azonics, Sun Ringles, etc. and there's none of the sharp edges, burs, cheap looking seals, etc. that the other pedals had. Also, the thru pins are a great setup. Been riding them for a few months and haven't lost, or even damaged a pin to the point that I can't easily get it out I'm extremely happy with them so far.

    Cramponīs? Podiums?... I dunno, they are very good pedals, but they bend easily if you happen to hit stumps on the trail. Besides, i heard those pedals arenīt interchangeable from left to right so you canīt bring just one on your camelbak as a spare, youīll need to bring a pair which would be a PITA.

    At the end they might be really nice pedals, though.... or maybe not.

    I wondered that too, maybe he means the pedals only, and not the spindles? I've never carried a spare pedal though, so what do I know?

    I do believe that was a reference to YoPawn and his escapades stump riding...

    As for the Blackspire Sub-4. I have a set and so does a buddy. So far they are impressing me. The only thing is the platform seems a bit narrower. The weight is bang on 350grams for the pair. I also have a set of Dark Cycle Arachnids that I love. Bigger platform than the Blackspire, but also heavier at 440 grams.

    Where did you get your sub-4's? I found some at goose creek cycles online for $85 shipped. Was gonna get them but have never ordered from them. They look great for the price.
