Do you mean new pedals?
Popular (for good reason) are:
- Shimano SPD-SL (Dura Ace, Ultegra, 105, R540)
- LOOK KEO Max 2
- Speedplay Zero
Very few people use Time pedals on the track.
Also, worn pedals should absolutely not be used. Unclipping on the track is a lot scarier than unclipping on the road
That being said, I'd suggest Shimano SPD-SL. They are quality, inexpensive (for those in the lower part of the lineup), and easy to find. Ultegra and Dura Ace are are more expensive because they use nicer bearings and weigh less. Shimano R540s are great for those on a budget that want a quality pedal: http://www.amazon.com/Shimano-SPD-SL.../dp/B000P9TOHQ
But, LOOK KEO Max 2 and Speedplay Zero are nice, too. It's about preference at this point.
