I have a pair like that too, I really like them for indoor riding but for everything else I prefer metal pedals, even for my giraffe. I think mine it's writed "J" on the side... it might stand for "Jacob"...at least it has the first letter of my name...

I was trying to find out who produced them and I spent a few hours yesterday searching and it really is overwhelming how many copies there are.

Also the different colours may have something to do with it. I have the white ones.
ahh i think they were them but i don't know, but anyway because of that i always use metal pedals now.

My favorite pedals are the biscuits. They are super light and perfect for flatland. Only problem is I'm on my 4th pair in 6 months, which is a terrible track record.

i also just found these

they're plastic and carbon fiber, they're light yet the carbon probably adds strength

I don't know if I'm up for those pedals. It says they are for experts, which I clearly am not.

Saw some new plastics.
http://www.danscomp.com/465260.php?cat=PARTS
Super light. very thin looking, tapered towards the outside.
Looks like strength could be an issue. Might have to try some out. Tons-o-colors.

It's time for me to get some new plastic pedals. Question is, which ones?

I've had 3 pairs of Twisted PC's, and I love them to death, but the wealth of new options is tempting.

I've heard the Hamilton's are almost too grippy, and that's definitely a downside.

I'm looking at the following pedals:
Eclat Surge Plastics

Colony Fantastic Plastics

Eastern Plastics

And if none of these are what I'm looking for, I may just get another pair of Twisted PC's. Any information you all could offer me would be great. I ride a combination of tech and (mild)big street, if that matters.

From what I've used.

Best metal pedal: Wellgo MG1's

Best plastic pedal: Odyssey Twisted PC's

(I like DX style plastics too though, they're really good for flips)

Due to my forum search for "Eclat Surge" only yielding one result, I decided I would buy them.

I figured I could benefit the unicycling community by taking a $25 dollar hit.

I'll write a detailed review once I get them.

I ordered those bad boys in clear.
