Here, this isn't a bad price on them. They are spensive though. I'm gonna work two shifts at my LBS for free to get them.

If you can afford it get these. I haven't tried them, but they seem great, with the 12mm thickness, huge platform, lots of pins, and cold forged bodies! I have size 13 feet and they fit me so they're plenty big. I'll give more details when I get/ride them.

So I just got the new spank spike pedals today. I had them out for a ride in the neighborhood on some trails, and I have this to say

Pros
Quite Grippy (10 pins per side)
Insanely thin (12mm)
Lightish (400gm a pair)
Strong so far
Huge platform
Badass looks

Cons
Not Concave (negates grippiness)
They mount very close to the crank (negates platform width)
Price

Other Thoughts
The one thing that bugs me about these pedals is how close they mount to the cranks, since there is no exposed axle. This moves my feet quite close to the cranks. I don't really see it being a problem, but if I had low or no Q cranks, I feel like my ankles would hit the cranks. This could be improved slightly with a pedal washer perhaps.

Other than that I love these pedals. Once you get used to the low Q of them they're great! My feet feel super planted and I won't have to worry about the infuriating "pedal flip" when climbing ever again.

WEs, if you want to grind, you need a pedal that will allow you remove the pins on one side, nylon body is a cheap way to go, not sure if they last longer or shorter than metal. The JC/PC is an option, just be sure and keep them well lubed so the spindle stays smooth.

For trials, cheap and durable, that's all that matters.

Just ordered some new pedals from Deity, these are the same rebranded pedals as the HT p12A and Nuke Proof Electrons, nylon body and socket head steel pins. It's my third pair, I sure do like this pedal design, now I have black, yellow, and red

http://www.deitycomponentsstore.com/...nd-pedals.html

They also have green and purple. I had the greens in my checkout, but decided to save a little cash. The purple pedals are sweet, if only I had a purple uni

I just got some Electrons and they are fantastic, cheap, grippy (might have to put longer pins in but we will see) and very light.

Gave them a proper workout today in the pouring rain and deep mud and they were fantastic the pins are just gripy enough that kept your foot planted but enable you to adjust your foot position with a slight lift

After braking my PC pedals, I'm looking for more durable ones. I went to a few bike stores, and these were recommended to me:

Answer Rove FR for 119CHF


NC 17 Sudpin III for 139CHF


DMR vault for 159CHF


Has anyone some experience with some of those? And yeah, they are far too expensive here in Switzerland...

What are you looking for in the pedals? If you just want to replace broken plastic pedals, most cheap metal pedals should be plenty strong.

Yes, that's propably true, but when I get new metal pedals, I want to ride them for the next few years. So, weight and especially grip is also a a concern to me. The Answer Rove pedals look for instance great, but they have less metal pins than my plastic pedals. The DMR vault ones seem to be better, but also more expensive.

Ah okay, that makes sense.

So, after reading dozens of reviews, I decided to take the DMR vault pedals. The main reasons are that they are very sturdy and at the same time light (400g) and have perfect grip (11 pretty aggressive pins). They are very flat (17mm), but pretty wide (115x115mm), so plenty of room for the feet. Also, they look pretty awesome

I have not used them offroad yet, but went out to ride down some stairs - the pins didn't disappoint! My feet never slipped off. Compared to my PC pedals, I felt much more comfortable and safe.

A con could be that because they are wider the chance of hitting obstacles laterally might be higher - I will report back when I have some single trail experience with them.
