- Recommend me some flat pedals
I know that STW did a flat pedal test but I would like some personal recommendations. I use spds at the moment but want to change to flats on my bigger bike.
I have used V12s in the dim and distant past and also 5050XX. V12s were ok but I would like something different and the 5050s weren’t great. I like the look of the Superstar Nano and would like to stay around the 50 quid mark.

I’ve just put the Raleigh Outlander slim pedals on my bike after reading a recommendation of them on this forum and I have to say so far so good. Not quite as supergrippy as the V12 (those sharp pins really do dig in to your shoes!) but definately grippy enough. They look fab and feel a lot lighter too but that might be imagination. Because they are quite slim you feel connected to the bike better somehow.Posted 7 years agoNorthwindSubscriber
The Outland ones are pretty good, light too but very jaggy- it’s not just the pins, they have sharp edges too, I’ve filed mine down now. But I think the Superstar/HT Components ones are better, just a nicer platform shape. Heavier obviously.
Wellgo MG1 are nice- like a V8 or V12 except lighter and cheaper, and more reliable, and with a better platform too. And made in the same factory to boot. But I’m getting to be a convert to these thinner pedals, it sounds like marketing BS but it seems to work.
Ready to Ride and Superstar often have a wee bit of a price war on, it’s worth checking both for Nanos as both shops put their prices up and down all the time.Posted 7 years agomboySubscriber
I liked the Shimano DX ones. Mega grippy, strong and good looking.
Errrr… I’ve had a pair for a few years, they’re reliable and good looking, but they’re not very grippy and they’re certainly not that strong.
Hear nothing but good things about the Superstar Nano pedals (same as Kona Wah wah’s etc.), but my personal fave is the Easton Flatboy. The Easton’s are the toughest pedal known to man, they’re ridiculously grippy too. OK, not the lightest pedal out there by some margin, but they’re probably the most bombproof, and they’re certainly one of the most grippy without resorting to ridiculously long pins.
Heard lots of good things about the Wellgo B27’s too, they look a lot like the Easton Flatboys but slightly slimmed down, and about half the price.
Jedi, the Azonic A Frames are less than half price on Chain Reaction right now… Reduced from £65 to £32, if you’re gonna replace em now seems like a good time!Posted 7 years agojamiepMember
I recently received the following mailer from superstar. It might be worth holding off pulling the trigger on their pedals… or it might not.
