I just realized this thread is pointless, like a few have said in the past everyone is going to say what they think is the best pedal haha. OP should change thread title to "Whats's your favourite pedal" but that thread might have already been started sometime.

Hated my Grandstands, very little grip. Alienation Foothold pedals are plastic with metal pins and they're the best I've used. I also liked s&m GNS and primo turbos.

Ride hexagon pins on a smaller body pedal...you’ll see

I love the Primo Turbo...even though I’ve broken several pair. They just feel so good.

I want Eclat Centric. I keep checking when these will be available but have been stocked out for a while

So what’s everyone’s best pedal destruction stories ?

|

While on the topic of pedals, does anyone know a wider pedal than the grandstands at 105mm?? Barely any brands list their dimensions.
The primos and eclat have more platform but they dont reach out as far.

Back when I was like 15 I smacked my Animal Hamilton PC pedal against a pole at the bottom of a stair gap and bent the axle. Me being some shithead kid I never replaced it; instead I rode it like that for so long that when I did finally get new pedals it felt weird. Only changed em cuz the bearings blew out too.

Odyssey twisted pc, wore down to the axle doing pedal feebs in a 2 hour ride. Duo thermalite, dropped my bike and cracked one 20 minutes after putting them on. Animal Hamilton pc got wrecked pretty quick from pedal feebs too. I’ve worn quite a few pedals down to the axle, with varying lifespans.
I snapped a couple of pairs of metal pedals too. Iirc, dmr v8’s I was doing a curved wall ride, and caught the pedal on the top of the wall. And gusset slim Jim, pedal feeble and a chunk just snapped off.

To anyone that does pedal feebles, just buy anything that’s on offer. The cheap crap ones on eBay won’t last, but the fancy ones don’t last either. Just average pc pedals seem to last the longest.

S&m gns were really comfortable, but didn’t last any longer than anything else. Fbm nice weren’t particularly comfortable but seem to last a while. Bsd safari, kink hemlock, united are very average.
Odyssey twisted by far wore down the quickest, and animal Hamilton pc wore down quick too. Not down to the axle but think I binned them after one ride.

There’s other pairs I want to try, but I’m not spending £30 on pedals that might only last a couple of months.

This is my issue too. I ran my Animal Hamiltons for a bit and it made my feet hurt because I am used to the width of my Grandstands.

I am looking into MTB pedals to replace them...and going back to Alloy I think.

Just measured my Eclat Centrics. 105mm x 110mm.
I have pictures comparing them to twisted pros in this thread: https://m.vitalbmx.com/forums/General-BMX-Talk,2/Eclat-Centric-Pedals,1324529#quote

I went for Fly Rubens because they have a lot of reach, even got to compare them to my friend's Eclat Centrics and the Fly's were slightly longer in the front. But those Eclats have more pins along the edge. My friend swears by them. I personally love the way the Rubens taper in. I'm not much a fan of square pedals anymore.

I done more damage than that in a few hours when I had a pair. The plastic is really weird
