All personal preference. If you like your pedals really grippy or go through plastics like crazy then metals may be for you. If not you can go for plastics. I hate feeling locked in to my bike so i go plastic, i have a set of eclat plastics that have lasted me two years, i just make sure I only grind on one side of the pedals.

If you put your pedal down alot whilst grinding go plastics or you may tear the pins out on metals.
I'd always go metals though because of the grippyness and the strength, also when you do get shin bash you feel like a man

Metal - stronger, stiffer, longer lasting, grippier

Plastic - cheap, light, less grippy, slides on grinds

Plastic with metal - Slides for grinds, lighter, and has the grip of metals.


I wouldn't go as far as to say MG52s are the BEST, but they are REALLY good and REALLY cheap. Odyssey Trailmixes and Fly Rubens are definitely better but at a big cost.


Plastic- Kink Senec
Metal- Odyssey Trailmix, Fly Ruben, Wellgo MG52
Plastic w/ metal- Odyssey JC/PC

I have done this countless times with metals. Honestly, I dont notice it anymore than a shinner from a plastic. I wear jeans when I ride, which gives a little protection (not really.) Ive gashed my shins pretty badly and it stung for a minute and I just rode it off and let it scab up.

One thing I have noticed is shinners are usually easy to avoid. I can usually get my legs out of the way almost like its an instinct. If I slip a pedal in mid air I just jump off or bail, whatevers more appropriate for the situation. Sometimes ill even land one footed and have my leg raised up damn near parallel to the ground just to avoid the pedal without bailing haha.

Ofcourse, youre more prone to getting a shinner with plastics aswell. They just dont grip aswell.

I have the MG-52's and they are solid. Before these I ran Primo tenderizers for about 15yrs. Here's why the MG-52's are the best. They are Magnesium, replacable pins, SEALED and they are only 39.99 which is cheap especially for SEALED pedals. I tried Plastic for one summer to see what the rage was all about. I destroyed 2 sets of pedals in one summer. I had Primo PC tenderizers wich I actually kind of like until I bust them in half and my other pair were Stolen Thermalites which just wore out to fast. Plastic are just a waste of time and money. If you ride PC pedals you need to carry a couple extra pairs with you at all times just incase.

Also, I have to comment about all the pussies complaining about getting shinned with metals. Grow the fuck up and take it like a MAN! Its called Impact strengthening, It will make your shins stronger. Also If you take a couple pins out, you dont have to worry about it as much. Or there is these things called shin guards if youre that big of a pussy.

Yes, I did like them. I liked the concave design they used and they were strong and stylish for the time. I tried the PC version a couple years ago but busted them pretty quick. I also want to add that i had several pairs over 15yrs, not just one pair that lasted 15yrs. I had bought the Sealed ones, they might have lasted longer. But back then you could hardly get sealed pedals for less then 60 bucks.

To anyone saying pc pedals are for pussies, they're not. Pc pedals can & WILL still cause significant damage.

Exhibit A-



Feeble to crankflip to smack the fuck out of my shin, wearing jeans, with plastic Animal pedals. Hurt like a bitch & didn't stop bleeding for hours, didn't heal fully for weeks either.


Exhibit B-

No photos, but a tailwhip to slipped pedal = destroyed shin. Swelled up super bad & the swelling met my ankle too, hurt so bad it actually gave me a nose bleed.

I have a pretty high pain tolerance too but several messed up whips straight to the shin over & over does add up.





As for the original question, go with whichever you feel you'd like more. I personal love pc pedals cause they don't lock me in as much cause when I do certain tricks I need to move my feet around sometimes easier.

Welgo mg52 are a good pedal for the price, much better option then claiming you want plastic pedals to save money then spend more on replacement plastic or snap them and injure yourself then You would have with metal pedals in the long run..... My mg52s are years old and still in good shape

I have the MG-52's and they are solid. Before these I ran Primo tenderizers for about 15yrs. Here's why the MG-52's are the best. They are Magnesium, replacable pins, SEALED and they are only 39.99 which is cheap especially for SEALED pedals. I tried Plastic for one summer to see what the rage was all about. I destroyed 2 sets of pedals in one summer. I had Primo PC tenderizers wich I actually kind of like until I bust them in half and my other pair were Stolen Thermalites which just wore out to fast. Plastic are just a waste of time and money. If you ride PC pedals you need to carry a couple extra pairs with you at all times just incase.

Also, I have to comment about all the pussies complaining about getting shinned with metals. Grow the fuck up and take it like a MAN! Its called Impact strengthening, It will make your shins stronger. Also If you take a couple pins out, you dont have to worry about it as much. Or there is these things called shin guards if youre that big of a pussy.

What Mike is forgetting to tell you is he is fuck-footed, meaning he grinds right but is left foot forward and spins left. Also that back in the day I recall seeing him run shin guards sometimes

Now this matters because back in the day we rode together and he used what I call "cheater foot" on some grinds, he would put his pedal down on his back foot to stabilize the grind some. Not sure if this contributed to him going through plastics, BUT it could.

Now my experience with Twisteds is the opposite, I have been running the same set for two years now, still have plenty of grip, but I don't do pedal grinds or put my pedals down in grinds.

I am sick and tired of the "cliques" that this sport has recently developed. We should embrace the fact that we all ride a little kids bike, and not worry about the small details. When you take riding in its most basic form, we are all the same.

they both can destroy shins. yes, metal will fuck you up more, but its not like the plastic is very forgiving either.

so aside from the which will do more damage to you, it is all a preference related to your style of riding.

Odyssey Twisted pedals.


Plastic , but lasted me over a summer of riding a couple hours everyday. Learned alot on them and they lasted fine. Super grippy. I swear by them.

Plastic because at the end of the day no one really likes having their shin gashed up. Metal pedals add more weight to the end of the crank arm, so when my foot slips with metal pedals the crank arms spin way faster into my shin than plastics do. Also it feels like plastic pedals always stay where I want them...
