The grip would be good, but the platforms will be to small I think.

Those are VP style pedals... Were really common in megamo and monty bikes (2000-2004 I believe)...

They're really grip, but there are 2 bad things:

-Will kill your shins, and even with shinguard you may hurt yourself... It's really dangerous!

-Will bend the cages with pedal grabs in a relly short time.

Both thins happened with me riding VP Cage pedals... not sure if this one will bend, but they're shin killers!

it depends on how much you enjoy having shins.

so does anyone think that the VP style is even worth trying regardless of my shins ? and yeah the MG-1 are my ones to fall back on just wanted to see if there was anything better grip wise and not over $200 :P lol but those 2 pedals on that website seem nice for how much they are so what would you think ?

thanks in advance

I think the slim jims would wear to quick and they look slippery without pins,

I currently have the Try-All Black Label Pedals, so far the best pedals I have had.
Good platform, good grip.

I wouldn't say there the best though. but reasonable price and decent weight.

Onza tensiles are the best cranks for trials IMO.Ive ridden them pretty hard and they havent bent or anything.Moments are way stronger than they need to be and moments also weigh twice as much

I had pedals like that, only single cage ones.
I snaped my right pedal on a 50cm hop.
Yeah thats right, I broke it on a hop ONTO something.
But I did love the fealing of those pedals and they were prety light.
Might go back to them when I will go back to trials...
