Platform pedals by Point1

Rating: Featured Member Review
The Good:

These are a wide, super light, super thin pedal which last a long time and can take a beating. The ease of chaning out pedal pins is a big plus and a real time saver. They have a super slim design which means they also give more ground clearence which is definitely a good thing in Downhill.

The Bad:

I prefer longer pins around 10mm (available at any hardware store), so the stock ones just don't seem grippy enough straight away for me.

Overall Review:

Overall, a lightweight, functional pedal which have good, solid bearings which don't allow the pedal to spin like crazy and throw your foot off. They have lasted through several muddy riding days. Also, the ease of changing pins is great and super easy even for a beginner.

Best pedals I've used

Rating:
The Good:

Very strong, light, and durable. With a concave, thin platform this pedal keeps your foot in place and really makes it feel connected to the bike.

The Bad:

Makes the pedals on my other bike feel crappy

Overall Review:

At first I didn't like the bearing bump but after trying three other brands of pedals I realized that I liked how the bearing bump put my foot just a little ways out from the crank arm. So now I see it as the bearing bump putting my foot in the perfect spot. I Have used them winter, spring, summer, and fall for almost two years and they just barely needed a bearing replacement. They are concave and you can't feel the axle under foot. The thin pins really grip your shoe. Best pedal I've put my foot on. Worth the price.

Godly Grip

Rating:
The Good:

Best-pedals-ever. 5.10s stick to them like glue, they're tough as nails and the bearings last.

The Bad:

None whatsoever

Overall Review:

If the bearing bulge is an issue for you than you simply have some whack-ass foot placement

Wanted to like them

Rating:
The Good:

Narrow profile, light, beautifully made.

The Bad:

Could not stand the bearing bulge at the pedal/crank interface. I like my feet as close to the crank arm as possible. I could ride these without feeling the bulge through my shoe. It bothered me. Very expensive

Overall Review:

I give it a 3 because of the bulge and price.

Epic Pedal

Rating:
The Good:

Super slim, super wide, super light. Pins that screw through the plate and stay in the body. Strong bearings. Flashy

The Bad:

Expensive-but worth it.

Overall Review:

These pedals are pretty intense. Just looking at them you can tell they are a crazy expensive piece of bike bling...and thats what it is. Bike bling. Super durable and light. Strong. More clearance. Just epic
