    Lightest pedals compatible with Power Grips Straps

    I really like power grips and currently have their "sport" model pedals and straps which is really heavy at 500grams. They have a "high performance" model which weigh 350grams, but it is usually listed for around $60-70 dollars.

    Just wondering if there are any really lightweight pedals that are compatible with power grips. The pedal needs to have at least one teeth in the back for easy entry.

    Thanks

    I think the MKS Sylvan pedals are pretty light and will work with Power Grips: http://www.universalcycles.com/shopp...&category=1671 . They're my favorite flat pedal, but I don't use Power Grips.

    Power grips are listed at 114g so with the MKS Sylvan comes out to 474g which is too close to my current setup of 500g. So I think I need pedals that are around 235g.

    You might find aftermarket Titanium axles , for some pedal that isn't made with one, and work backwards from there..

    Since the steel axle is the heavyest part of the pedal
