Looking for thin/light platform pedals

Does anyone know of any pedals similar to these VP 001 pedals? And where to pick some up?
Will be adding fat toe straps as well, but before that goes down I need a pair of something close to these!

I don't see how it's possible to add toe cages or straps to those platform pedals which are designed more for MTB and BMX purposes...

They look nice! I might purchase a pair once I will find the thread size of my current pedals.

What is the price?

I think holdfast straps would be my best preference, so yeah I am just looking for some similar thin flat platforms. Just not finding anything online besides ebay which isn't always the best source

Deity Decoy 2 are really thin and capable of straps, but they will be pricey.



DH pedals are generally thinner than most other platform pedals, however, you can't use straps on some/most of them.

The AN01 and AN06 models are both great pedals and rebranded under other names for a higher price. They've proven to hold up for FR/DH abuse, so should just fine for your girly legs on the street. Sharp removable pins are unnecessary on the street. If you like the style, maybe look into plastic bmx pedals from various cos. that also come in a sh!tload of colors.

Came across these on ebay in a bunch of colors.

Xpedo Face-offs. They look the business.
