    Platform pedals

    Can anyone recommend a good slimmer style platform pedal? Something with good grip and doesn't weigh too much? Thanks.

    Slimmer than what? I've always liked DMR V12, but they do a cheaper V8 depending on your budget.

    Thanks. I'm looking for slimmer than the standard bmx trap. Do you have a link to the V8's? Are these Wellgo pedals you're referring to?

    Nevermind, I found the DMR website. The V12's seem to be what I'm looking for. Thanks again.

    I currently use and recommend the Specialized Lo Pro Mag 2's - they meet the criteria you describe.

    The new Straitline pedals look pretty nice as well, although I have no experience with them.

    I'll also add that Five.Ten Impacts will make any platform pedal (or wet log or mossy rock for that matter) significantly grippier.

    I'm running the sealed mags right now.

    I get pretty white sparks when I either do pedal grinds or miss my feebles .

    Either the Trailkings (like MX reccomended) or my reccomendation, the Shimano DX. Both will run you around $100-120.
