They seem legit, but they're ridiculously heavy for pedals... 22oz is just too much. My metal pedals (Stolen Throttles) are only 16.9 oz, and I have no complaints about them.

If you're looking for metal pins with a plastic bodied pedal (like the eclat AK ones) get the Odyssey OGPC pedals.

If you want plastic pedals, get the Merritt P1 pedals.

Or the Eclat Contras. Plastic, but with 4 metal pins on 1 side.

They're like a crazy amount of money here and they seem pretty thick for my liking

Switched from some old Snafu metals to BSD Safari's. I'm into the PC pedals. Cheap and grippy. Although I have a fresh pair of vans so that helps..

The AK pedal is a more premium and expensive pedal, but this is because it features such a unique and carefully thought out design that took a long time to develop and has huge benefits over a traditional plastic pedal which allow it to last much longer than anything else.

First of all the pedal follows the concept of a plastic peg and features universal pedal bodies, which mean they will fit on both the left or right side, and aren't specific like a normal pedal. This means that you can get almost twice the life out of your pedals since if you grind on the right pedal, after it's been worn down you can switch it with the left pedal. If you go on a trip you can also bring a spare pedal body or two with you and change them out in a matter of seconds and have a fresh pair of pedals, without having to purchase a whole new pair.

The pins on the AK pedal are also fully removable and customisable so you can run them with no pins at all if you wish, and then add pins once the molded pins on the body have been worn off, again giving you way more life.

The second key to the AK pedal is the spindle/axle. Because the pedal runs on bushings, not unsealed bearings, we were able to increase the thickness by almost double of a traditional unsealed pedal. This makes the axle so incredibly strong that we offer a full LIFETIME GUARANTEE against it breaking or snapping. Not everyone is hard on pedals, but for the kind of rider that grinds and has had issues in the past bending them, the AK pedal is the perfect solution.

We also understand that it's a pedal that provides advantages that not everyone necessarily needs, so we also offer 6 other pedals in our product line that bridge the gap between, price, thickness and grip.

If you want a thinner profile pedal, we just released the Seker Pedal which runs on sealed bearings and has a much thinner profile than most pedals as well as a larger platform and a stronger axle which we use on the Surge CNC pedal that Sean Burns swears by. http://eclatbmx.com/products/pedals/seeker-pedal/

Hope that helps wink

I've got PC granstands and I LOVE the width of them. Smaller pedals are not comfortable anymore.
