Anyone using them? How are they holding up? Good and bad?

The platform is too small for DH, and they're too heavy for AM. Bearing durability is decent though.

Well, not using for DH. Need to eventually replace my DMR V12's which are starting to die.

You may also want to check out the Spank Spike, Blackspire Sub 4 or 3, and the Nukeproof Proton or Neutron pedals.

The Blackspire pedals would likely be your best choice if you're not planning on using them for DH. Sub 4 is 350g and costs approx $110 and the Sub 3 is 300g but is over twice as much at $230.

Hope F20s are the best flat pedals I have tried… also used Straitline Amps, HT AE01s, NRG Slabalanche, Point One Podiums, Canfield Crampon Ultimates, Nukeproof Electrons, and probably some others… I have some brand new Saints in my parts bin, but after installing the Hopes I have found nirvana.

Don't know about the Blackspires..heard of some people breaking them on small hits.

Been riding them a fair amount since last June. The platform may look small but the overall width measures up wider than a lot of other pedals. Grip is good, and adjustable, and the bearings have been super solid.

They're 417g. More of a Freeride pedal than an AM pedal, but if that's what you're looking for then they'd likely be a contender.

Thanks.

Looking like it will either be Chromag or Blackspire.

I personally find the Blackspires to be not very wide with medium level grip. Saints definitely better in both categories.

Does that mean you have small feet?
