It would be :

Premium Slims - Worried about quality though

VP-69 Pedals - No reviews but seem decent , ti upgrade possible too

NC-17 Pedals - Redbull sponsored local rides them and he won 50 k at a contest last month

SNAFU Anorexic Pedals - Snafu seems kinda HarryMainish but whatever

Anyone that is slim really , don't want bricks like Odyssey Trailmixes , Fit Shitty pedals seem good , I mean really if they're good I'd buy them but slim and sealed is preferable. Actually really interested in riding metal now so I'm keeping an open mind. MTB pedals included too.

If you want a slim pedal, you're going to have to deal with weak spindles and weak bodies.

That said, Trailmixes will have the strongest spindle. The upcoming Dugan pedals will have the same spindle with a slimmer body. I ran unsealed Trailmixes for 3 years and never even bent the spindle. Now I'm running the sealed Trailmixes with no problem.

Mac pedals apparently have very, very weak spindles. I've heard countless people say they bent the spindles.

The pedals you listed will be pretty much equally weak. They all have small spindles that are easy to bend.

Fucckkk like I know I want slims , because they look good but its just something I want . Maybe I'll wait and see about the Dugan pedals then. I don't bend spindles on plastic pedas , I'm 125 lbs , so maybe "weaker" ones are ok.

just get the anorexics, really good pedals and refusing to ride something because a park rider does is possibly the worst reason I've ever heard off

God what the fuck? You literally said you want something that is noticeably weaker because it looks good? That's the problem with BMX... What's next? "Nah I don't want a gusset because it doesn't look as good" or maybe "I know having more holes in my stem than metal is bad, but it looks better"

I had one, then I went and got a Lazer Armor Helmet. It's SUPER light, has a lot of vents, and I love it.

I'd get demolition or Odyssey. Fuck slims. Mine lasted a week and I bent the spindle. I don't even ride that hard. And get a fucking certified helmet.

I have a bucky helmet (I think that's the one. it's some pro skaters helmet). not certified.

I have landed on my head many times with it over the last few years. The last time I hit the ground hard enough to rip two ligaments in my shoulder. I've also cracked a normal pro-tec and didn't get a concussion.

Those helmets are not as bad as some of you are led to believe.

I will be replacing my helmet soon though, cause it's about 4 years old and will probably get a certified one.

It may not be, but my friend has one and I can bend it with my hands pretty easily.

LAZER ARMOR FOR THE WIN.

But seriously, the Bucky is super flexible. Mine was in my car all closed up for a day in the summer with my pad/tool bag on it, and it reshaped to super narrow and long.

Also, it doesn't handle a lot. Sounds like your head took the brunt of those crashes. So yea, it helps, BUT a helmet is designed to minimize the impact your head takes.

Fuck weak shit . I 'd be interested in Macs or the Dugan pedals. It'd be for street/park so I'd rather have strength . If I rode flowy trails or bowls then I'd get a slimmer pair but now I'm also considering Eclat Surge alloy pedals. Even maybe the VP-69 pedals as well. They're not on Dans though.

the surge pc's are my favorite pc pedals that I have ever ridden
i expect no less of the surge alloys, but the 110$ price is way too much
i'll stick with oddys, especially considering they are about 1/2 the price for sealeds

Check into Specialized. They have helmets for those who have large melons.

Mine is large and my lazer works well. Measure around your head and use that to decide what side you need.
