    I'd say Straitlines and Twisted PCs.

      In this video it looks like he is using different pedals; they are square, not rounded.

I have MG-1's now, they may be light as all get out but they're expensive and my old pedals were just as grippy and not much heavier.
          I personally dont' like those. Way to much grip for me and I dont really like there shape.

            Twisted PC's are the best pedal for street not to grippy and are good for grinding and light

                    I think the problem with a lot of the cheaper pedals is how easily the axle bends. Unless you're willing to pay a lot of money you won't get lightweight pedals that have the grip you want and the strength all round. I'm unsure whether it's better to buy 10 pairs of really cheap pedals or one pair of expensive ones that will last for years.
                    The best pedals I have ever used (mainly on bikes) is the DMR V8/V12 (unsealed/sealed). They cost 20/40 GBP or you can get them with a Ti axle for around 55-60. They are most definitely my favourite pedal on my BMX but I don't know if they'd be a little too grippy for unicycling. Then again the pins in the pedals can be removed so that you can change how grippy they are.
                    So, after looking over the DMR pedals to closer detail, I have decided they are the best option and give you good value for money.
                    They're also available in a huge range of colours with 'Pimp' kits to upgrade pins and bolts etc.

                        Was that aimed at me? If so, then they are pretty easy to get hold of. In the UK they are available in pretty much all LBS and every mail order bike shop.

                        I had a quick search on the interweb and I didn't find any on any US mail order shops, but I don't know any actual places to buy bike stuff from in the US. There are a couple of pairs of V12's and a couple of pairs of V12's on the US ebay. Might be worth searching your usual mail order sites.

                          Unicycling is great.

                              Sorry, I was talking to you. Anyway, these look intriguing. It doesn't look like they have enough pins though.
