I need pedals that have good grip for $30

My feet always slip off my pedals even when i just ride on the rode, i dont want to spend alot so if i can get a decent pair for $30 that would be great.

I switched from crappy cage pedals to Wellgo b25's on my trials bike, and the change was for the better. it's not the lightest, but it grips decent, and goes for $30 at pricepoint. those odyssey's posted above seem pretty cool too.

MKS Sylvian touring seem to work OK for me.
Toe clips may help prevent slipping off the pedals.

I'm using bulletproof pedals and I love em. They have screw ends sticking out so you get good grip. The only thing is that if your foot slips, then by by shin (or calf, depending on how you slip.)

Azonic Fusion Magnesium pedals:
-$30 at pricepoint
-Light for a platform pedal
-strong as hell (I weigh 260 lbs and abuse the crap out of them)
-pins grip like crazy and are replaceable.

Just don't let them hit your shins.
