I still say the composite body pedals are the best bang for the buck. I have the eariler generation of these:

They are light, cheap and have decent grip. I imagine the updated version ive shown here have even better grip. They take a beating, and you dont feel as bad about beating these guys up as you do a $200 set of something more bling.

They are also available from Deity, NRG etc….

My wife and I are using similar sets on our fat bikes (FireEye Hot Candy):

I have been running the Nuke Proof Electro in blue for a year now. Good bang for the buck. Like the fact that there is no anodizing to wear off. Did have to tighten them up on the trail once when they were basically new, has not been an issue since.

Ya I'm a cheap, plastic pedal evangelist as well.

Honestly, can't see a reason to spend 4 times more even thought I've tried some of the "higher end" pedals in the past.

I have NRG Nano pedals on the AM bike and NP Electro on the DH bike. The NRG are going on 4 or 5 years of use and not a issue. Both are a good bang for the buck and under 100.

RF Atlas, HT AE02, Hope F20s…. all good pedals for grip, weight, platform size and shape. The Hopes are the best built in terms of durability IMO. I have size 12 shoes and no issues with any of these for support.

Those are beauts.

There are some light mec (welgo prolly?) flats for $60 or so that are pretty aiight

Yep, cheap and great!

Someone needs to try the Syntace Titan pedals. Comes in S/M/L body sizes. Yeah I do!

Also a site REALLY needs to publish a flat pedal shoot-out :rolleyes: How else would the Joeys know which is da best???

I have Scarabs, Hippy Killers and Straitline pedals.

Or get the Pedalling Innovations Catalyst pedal!

DMR vaults. Best pedals I have used. If you have larger feet ;)

No love for the spank pedals? 3 years on mine with no bushing play.

Here's the new pedal standard. Super long platform which they say "could" mean increased pedal power!

A vote from me for the DMR vaults. Run them for years on a Chromag and a DH bike.
I like pins that remove from the back side of the platform so they can be replaced when they're damaged. Pretty quiet and trouble free with a re grease once a summer.
Just got the Mags for my new bike and they feel pretty light too.

So I have to clarify: I live in Europe. Shimano Saints go for 75$ new. That´s part of my price/performance rave.

If they go for 120$ they are still great pedals. But the other options aren´t that far off then?

DMR V12 Mag have served me well this season… lightweight and grippy, no issues with them so far. Around 100 bucks.

I just bought some Saints for the DH bike. Good price at the usual online suspects.
