Anybody used these pedals?
Check these out. Think they are the same as the superstar ones but at an even more ridiculous price. Mine turned up the other day and for the money they’rrrrr ggggreat. Not used in anger yet so I can’t coment on the durability.Posted 6 years ago
Not convinced by the ones over yonder –>
I’m not a fan of paying looooads extra to shave off a few grams…just don’t want to be adding too much unnecessary weight to my new lightweight bike 😛
Those exotic ones look pretty good, definitely on my short list!
No one used the octane ones then? (I like the nice blue ones!)Posted 6 years agocooganMember
Cheaper and have two sets completely fault free and never been apart for a service since 2006. Bounced up and down Alps and Canada and Scotland. Can’t fault them. Awesome pedals.Posted 6 years agobecky_kirk43Member
I’m looking for some reasonably lightweight, grippy, flat pedals but without paying the earth for them.
These seem to fit the bill quite well…has anybody got any experiences with them?Posted 6 years agonick1962Member
Got a pair of those Exotic myself but not had them long so can’t comment on their durability..
These have lasted me well
But I do prefer thru pins myself as they are easier to replace a la Kona Wah Wah and Superstar

i got nukeproof ones that are the same as wah wahs etc…. fookin creaking already
Nuke proof but obviously not jedi proof 😀
Which Nukeproof ones jedi because I can’t see any that are the same as Kona Wah Wahs? The Superstar ones are not the same as Wah wahs either despite what they say on their sitePosted 6 years agoDavesportSubscriber
After spending considerable money on a variety of pedals for the fleet, I’ve found the Gusset Slim Jimhave lasted the longest with zero maintenance. Even the Syncros Meathooks I bought in October last year started siezing up after half a dozen uses 👿
I’d buy these Gussets again. Reasuringly cheap & a cracking name to boot 😀

Those Nukeproofs definitely aren’t the same as Kona Wah Wahs but they look exactly the same as my £25 Exotics…. Hope they last a bit longer than yours!
Got a pair of the cheapest Gusset slim jims on my commuter, used 5 days a week in all weathers(including snow),no sort of maintenance at all in over two years and they still spin better than any other of my other pedalsdoug_basqueMTB.comSubscriber
I’ve been using the superstar ones, the nanotech (thru pin version), which I think are the same, externally anyway, as the nukeproofs. I’ve had them on my bike for a year so it’s quite a lot of miles, using them for XC, DH and playing at the local jump park. They’ve been perfect. I opened them up the other day to have a look and it’s still packed full of pristine white grease and the bearings look absolutely brand new. I’m impressed. You can also get them in the nice blue colour if you want to!Posted 6 years agoretro83Member

They’re almost the same but the SS ones have (or had at least) little bolts instead of grub screws. Not sure if there is any practical difference, but they look cool 🙂Posted 6 years agoelaine anneMember
get some of these -you wont be dissapointed trust me :wink:!!! and they are great price now !!!! my son and i just bought them…grippy as hell and come with spare pins….Posted 6 years agouwe-rMember
I have just given these a go,
They have ace grip much better than my old V8’s and have a grease port so they should last pretty well.Posted 6 years ago
