I don't trust straitlines! They use a "c"clip, and even though they use two, in case one comes off, I am very leary of that configuration; I had a pair of atom lab "Aircorp" pedals, that also were touted as a GREAT pedal. Very expensive too. The pedal flew right off the spindle doing a mild jump!

They also used "C" clips, and had undergone many, MANY revisions to improve and apparently correct the defect. Not sure what ever happened since my pair are collecting dust.

I'll stick with my speedplay drilliums. They are the absolute best pedals for MUni, by far IMO.

Ryan Atkins used Straitlines and never had a problem with them. Pedal grabbing/trials is a lot worse for pedals than MUni IMO.

Look how much force he needs to get those clips on.

That's what i went with, size dictated my choice. As my 5-10s are very wide I wanted a pedal as wide as possible and there are touted as being among the biggest there are. At the very least they should be bigger than snufus, otherwise I would be very dissapointed.

Excited (anxious really :-) to see whether mud gets stuck due to all the small holes.

I just got Azonic Accelerator pedals and the grip and ability to move your feet around is great. They are a really good size for stability and made a huge difference in the feel of the ride. Sealed cartridge bearings and only 460g.

I still love my drilliiums for more extreme MUni, but now that I have my G26er, I've been trying to find ways to reduce the excess rotational weight of the schlumpf hub. I've been able to shave off nearly two full pounds by switching from the ardent 2.6 to the 2.4, and by replacing the moment cranks with ventures.

Finally, as per this thread topic, I've found what must be close to the world's lightest sealed bearing platform pedals. They are the Wellgo C-135's and weigh in at a super light 290g per pair! (second pic below)

And I find them to be nice and grippy, but a little narrower than what I'm used to. I took my GUni for a quick test spin and found that shifting ability is not affected, and even though they are narrower, I don't really notice it. I'll get a better idea when I try them on the trail, and if they aren't working out, they should be great on my 36er.

I also just ordered a pair of Xpedo curved platforms (first pic below) which are also quite light at 390g, but also a lot wider than the wellgo's, and measure 100x100mm, making for a huge foot area, which is why I like the drilliums so much. But the drilliums weigh a ton by comparison.

I wanted to add this find! If money is no object, and you want the lightest pedal with the widest foot area, then check out these titanium pedals.

And the nylon version with replaceable steel pins is only 338g.

The nylon pair look really good, although i think caged pedals are good when you get in a rainy and muddy situation. I dont like the feel of caged pedals tho

Yeah I'm not a fan of the cage pedals. The nylon pedals shouldn't be a problem in wet weather since the steel pins would supply all the grip you need.

DMR V12's are very good pedels for what they cost, get the chromed version because it doesn't chip while the anodized paint wears of and is chipped of, personally i do not like mag bodies on peddles because it is dented and cracked easily.

the DMR V8's are great if your limited by money, and have a great way of re greasing the baring's, just inject fresh grease in through a hole in the body, and it pushes the old grease out of the seals.

they look nice but at 536g, they are much heavier than I want to go.

hmm ive rode with pedals just like that before and in wet weather the pins do just fine but once mud gets caked on there its a pain to get off

pretty much best pedals for muni would be the pedals that turtle put to use a couple pages back... when i was riding at Elsbet this year the only peoples pedals that didnt clog up with mud were that style. haha you could clean your shoes with those pedals and the mud would fall right through them.
