    I kind of hate my MG1. Everytime I take it to a rocky place, I have to replace at least a couple of traction pins. The magnesium is way too soft.

    I am rocking the Straitlines right now, and so far so good. Took bunch of hits at N*, and survivied. Pretty tough. But they are heavier and cost $$$. And the traction pins (hexagonal and sharp!) work too well, and dig into your skin if you screw up.

    Length is a little larger by roughly 1/4". Width is similar, but Straitline is wing-shaped, so more surface area near the cranks.

    Deity, Canfield, Atomlab, Premium are all close to the same size platform; about 2-3 mm larger than the Mg's. The best part is the lower profile though, minimizes pedal strikes which extends the life of the pedals & pins.

    Kenny, do you mind sharing what you are riding now and how long you've had them?

    I hear a lot of people getting wellgo MG-1 pedals. Im looking at getting straitlines now as my friend has a pair and they feel amazing. How do the MG-1s hold up and grip because if I can save the weight and the dough for a comparable pedal to the straitlines thatd be nice.

    Mg1's are dirt cheap and they grip well... But the bodies are really soft so I wouldn't recommend running them on your downhill bike... I put mine on mah trail shredder...

    Sunline V1's are pretty bomb. I've had mine for tad over 3 years now and they're still going strong. Bombproof and grippy as ever. Definitely worth looking into...

    bear; I'm running a set of Premium Slims now, they've been extremely reliable even after 2 years of abuse. The only thing I've done is replace the pins once. Very good investment IMO..
    Have a set of MG1's as well but they do get pretty mangled with the rocks. I was able to retap the holes and replace the pins with larger ones but that's kind of a one time fix.

    The superstar pedals look really good. Too bad you cant get them in the US due to some BS shipping reasons.

    I used some Bike Smart copy of the Cannondale Grind for a season of DH racing. then i went clipped. They were tough and shed mud well, sealed bearings.
    No problems, would recommend.

    Mike, not gonna bother trying to sell all these other yahoo's on CF crampons, but get a set. I promise you will not be disappointed. I have never been so certain a bike product is so head and shoulders above everything else in the land. The straitlines are good (a riding buddy has them) but the canfields are significantly better.

    Three years with my Straitlines and loving them, just serviced them once a month and still running with original build kit. Servicing them takes only 10 mins
