Lightweight bigfoot pedals?

I'm looking for some lightweight platform pedals like these:

However, they are kinda heavy. Anyone seen some with the same form factor that are lighter? I'm currently sporting some welgo mtb pedals and they weigh 275 grams (pair). They don't have to fold. Thanks.

I am using these plastic BMX pedals on my BF Pocket 8 and like them. They weigh 360 grams/pr, but are not what I would call heavy. I found them at a Bike Gallery Store in Portland, OR.

Yes, I bought them for their color, but I also like them for their performance.

Thanks, Lou.

I don't mind the color. What did they set you back?

I read a poster in the commuting forum and he added some bigfoot pedals and said he noticed the torque increase from the wider pedals. That's what I want.

Probably ****ty quality, but at $ 6.96 with free shipping and only 266 gram, it might be worth the try...

They were $16.99. I like the wide platform for my size 13 foot. The plastic "pins" make them decidedly less slippery than the other pedals I have used.

The wife found some transparent Lt. Blue ones for her Pocket 8 online for a bit less ($11.99 ?), and she likes them, too.

I am using Wellgo MG1, Magnesium body with titanium Spindle, 298g the pair, perfect grip and support, good value for money too. Gets my highest recommendation!
