Pros Super slim profile, solid grip no matter where your foot is positioned, lightweightSuper versatile do-it-all pedal, cool industrial styling, bottom loading pins, strong stubby axle, no fancy tools required for service, affordableSlim profile, slick styling, grub screw pins, strong stubby axle, lightweight, lots of available colorsTough and durable, won’t break the bank, good mid-range sizeHigh-end looks, large platform, lightweight, slim profile
Cons Moderate size platform, pin heads are somewhat exposed, a bit priceySmall-ish platform, some may want more grip, slight hump underfoot at axleFairly expensive, axle can be felt underfoot, concavity achieved with pins not platformSmaller platform and only 8 traction pins, no traction pins along the spindleLower grip, wide traction pins, too many traction pins for their size, top loading pins
Bottom Line Designed to be light, low profile, and good lookingNo matter where you ride or what you ride, these pedals have you coveredThe best of today's pedal technology in a slim, sleek packageLess-expensive flat pedal option for those who like to put their equipment to the testWithout tons of grip, these cool-looking pedals are a solid freeride option
