I saw them in person last week and placed my foot upon them, and now I am getting a set for sure. They look and feel great. They are thin, concave, good pin placement etc... I would call the platform size of this pedal medium which I like because I will hit them less often.
(PS you may not want to listen to me as I only ride flats on my hardtail.)
im running Saints right now (like them a lot), but i want to get something lighter
I've been running the atlas pedals on my trail and DH bikes for 5 months now. Like them a lot. My only complaint would be proprietary pins.
I just ordered a set for my trail bike. I should have them tomorrow and will probably try them out this weekend.
Don't have the Atlas pedals but I had a really positive experience with Race Face warranty replacement. Sure, it would have been even better if the part hadn't broken at all, but when it did, I got a new one fast and without problems. I can't say the same for all companies I've dealt with.
Got the cheaper Aefects on the DH bike and they have been swell also. No long term data on durability but they have taken a few shots without any issues, have a nice platform size, are concave and grippy. I'm sure the Atlas pedals are even nicer being a few mm thinner and lighter.
Update: Got a few more days in with a bunch of hard rock strikes (one of which tossed me OTB in a rock gallery) and still running smooth as when they were purchased. Very pleased.
I bought a set about a month ago to use primarily on my DH bike. I took them as a backup on a road trip last week hitting several states on our trail bikes and ended up riding them all but one day. So with over a hundred miles on them on my trail bike and a little time on my DH bike I can say they are awesome pedals. Highly recommended
I've tried both of SuboptimusPrime's and dogboy's pedals in the parking lost and found them to be uneventful, borderline uninspiring.
am i the only one who uses plastic pedals? granted, it is on my trail bike.. theyre premium bmx PCs, i get a lot of weird looks from the trail bros/douchers where i ride.
not stoked on my saint pedals... might be looking into them
saints are kinda chunky and not as wide/long as i wanted
I'm trying to decide between these and the Spank Oozys.
how proprietary / weird are they? my definition of a reasonable flat pedal is 'has pins that I can replace pretty easily if I go into my box of pins that I've accumulated for typical flat pedals over the years' or 'has pins that can be replaced at a hardware store the day before a road trip'.
i looked into those too, but i like the idea of no bushing. and theres nothing really about the Spanks that makes me want them over the RF pedals
BUT, the Spanks would probably rock regardless
Anybody break or stand on these things?
They don't weigh hardly anything (although they give a weight without pins......)
no exp with the Loaded pedals
they look alright. Still like the look of the canfield pedals though. Have yet to ride them though.
wow, those are thin
yea most of the pictures are on their website don't really show how thin they are. Once you see the side profile though....wow they are thin. The spindle is almost thicker then the actual pedal.
I haven't tried the Crampon pedals, but that is why I don't like the look of them. The body is basically convex, instead of concave like most other pedals. I recently switched to the Spank Spike pedals which are flat and while the grip is good, I could feel the difference in body shape. I don't see how being super thin makes up for the convex shape.
do any of you that have the RF Atlas pedals, feel this bump?...
Not at all. The bump is less prominent than it looks - probably less than 1mm.
Actually bought a pair. Light as fook, can't comment on durability.
had them for a few months. bashed them a bunch. no complaints. do wish more pedals these days had the pedal wrench option and not just allen removal though...
that inboard bump is nothin - the lighting in that pic makes it look huge.
