Im looking for some new pedals in a bit (the bearings are going in my sealed jc) and i was wondering how are the twisted plastic pedals? I know they are lighter,cheaper and more shin friendly than metal pedals but i need to know about strength and durability. I am not a light guy (185-195 depending on the day haha) and i have broke magnesium pedals before so going to plastic makes me worry but i dont do pedal grinds at all. So for the weight, cheapness and pro-shin agenda are these trendy pedals worth it?

even if you don't pedal grind, a set of plastic pedals will last about 3 months, depending on how hard you are on em.

it's not the outside of the pedals you need to worry about as much as the inner bearing races. they are also plastic, and therefore really soft. The races will pit really fast and create a "notchy" feel, or they will get a lot of slop.

For the same price you could replace your sealed bearings. Pull out the bearing, get the code off the side, and call BC bearings. They can get anything there. they're over by lougheed and gilmore. pm me if you need more info.

PS- thats wut i would do but i'm picky, and hate bearing slop on any or my parts.

some of the local yokels have these things. apparently if you touch anything with the pedal the pins just disappear

arguing on the internet is like being in the special olympics. even if you win, your still retarded.

Honestly, why stress breaking pedals and wearing them down. The weight difference is minescule. Theres no way that much weight difference is going to affect your riding. Worried about your shins, wear shin pads ! A plasic pedal in the shin is still going to hurt. Do what tron said, new bearings and youd be good.

i ride em. and i love them. best feeling pedal i've ever ridden. very very grippy, even ridden wet muddy trails and they still grip great. i'd suggest them to anyone who wants something cheap and light. i know people that have had the same pair for well over a year.

ultimately a good metal pedal is probably best, but if you arent hardcore street the plastic holds up great.

I ride aluminum pedals just for strength, weight isn't a big factor for me. Plastics are a good idea if you get a lot of shinners.

I rode someone's bike with these pedals and they aren't grippy at all. Probably depends on what shoes you have on. The "pins" are super fat so maybe with Vans they'd be ok.

there the best pedals less scary to try whips and feel better to land on
and you dont get cuts every time you ride and for 15 20 dollars you could buy two sets for the price of some other pedals
if your worried about breaking them

That's true. They are cheap so I'd try them out. If you don't like them they're probably really easy to sell.

Bought a pair.  20 mins of riding doing some bunny hops, whatever, getting the feel of the pedals.  From flicking my foot on lil no footers one of the teeth disappeared.  Other than that, I love em, they are really grippy.  Just don't want to lose all the teeth.

dont pedal grind with them and youll get what you pay for. a great and surprisingly grippy pedal but dont have an incredibly long life span. good for a season.
