    I really like my tioga mx pro pedals. They are 460g, but you could take out some pins. :D

    Kona Wah-Wah pedals. Low profile and they are grabby as hell. I don't run 5-10's and I still stick to them easily. They'd better be good if they retail for $100!!!

    Wow. The choices are unlimited... This thread could get a zillion suggestions. Instead of making one, I'll just say get some 510's. Every platform pedal feels the same with 510's IMO. :biggrin:

    Second that, they are nice. They come from the same factory as the Kona pedals, they just have some extra machining on them. Nukeproof has their name on the same pedal, and they also have a lighter Mag/Ti(280g) version too.

    I love my Aircorps, but they're heavier than the OP's guidelines... They would be my first suggestion. The Diety's look good though.

    That's just silly. Have you seen Gee Atherton ride? He's clipped in and takes his foot off/out more than most riders with flats!!


    I'm rockin some Wah Wah's - very very good. if I had to buy again I'd think about those atomlabs. Very light in the Ti version! Or the new Canfield Crampons.

    the Pimplites are claimed to be only 470g....20grams more than his requirement....and theyre pretty similar to the Aircorps.

    I am interested in the Nuke proofs I have ran straitline thought they stuck nice, still running MX-30 shimanos I just like that pedal.

    I will probably have the canfield bros model next.

    Syncros mental magnesium's. 420g's, very tough, and the best traction you'll ever get from a flat pedal. They're pricey though.

    Oh I know, I'm just giving the OP sh*t.

    So Gee is clipped in for all his race runs? Sometimes it's hard to tell since he's wearing the skate shoes and I do see him throwing that foot out a lot. I just assume he's on flats for some of the races but I wouldn't know for sure.

    Light pedals just don't do it for me, I want something I can plow into stuff!!

    Burgtec penthouse flats are the kings in my opinion, stupidly expensive and 660g but after 2 years on a Sunday they are still in really good shape despite numerous smashes and they've only had 1 set of pins replaced in the right hand pedal. These things just keep going when others have snapped or bent f*ck out of the bodies!
