  • What (Cheap) Flats
  • Premier Icon doomanic

    I’ve just ordered some 5-10 EPS shoes from the Adidas PSA and I’ll need some flatties.

    Budget is sub-50 definitely, sub-30 preferably.

    Dmr v12’s great pedal for the money

    Burgtec composites, tremendous.

    Nukeproof neutron plastic, or superstar nanos of you don’t mind the extra weight. Same axles I belive.

    V12s off eBay for circa £25 last time I looked.
    Or planet x had some cheap v8 copies for £5. I got a couple of pairs so I didn’t have to swap pedals between bikes. They are good, but the pins wear fast, so not ideal for bikes you use a lot.

    We have done this very thread a few times recently – but the search function on this forum is terrible.

    I’d go Superstar Nano Evo if they’re currently on offer.

    Nukeproof Horizons are a good shape too

    Superstar Nano, lower profile and feel bigger platform than v12s, and bushings significantly less shit than v12s. That’s faint praise, but they’re great pedals.

    Horizon plastics- not super cheap but super good.

    I have the Horizon SPD pedals and a full set of spare parts so the Horizon flatties would be a good shout.

    Horizon (nylon version) are great IME. I like a wide platform

    Horizon pros are good value at the min – https://www.chainreactioncycles.com/mobile/nukeproof-horizon-pro-flat-pedals-black-edition/rp-prod135210

    That’s got to be the best choice at that price – much more durable than the plastic pedals.

    Burgtec composites, better than my superstar nanos and one up alloy pedals.

    I’d avoid the plastic horizon if you ride anywhere rocky as the outside pins are plastic and will disappear fairly quickly.

    I’d go Superstar Nano Evo if they’re currently on offer.

    £29.99 with code FRIDAY19

    Easy decision if you want metal pedals, IMO. Really good pedalsd and they don’t often go that low now.

    i have nukeproof electrons, and burgtec composites and i think i prefer teh electrons but hte burgtecs are still very good.

    I bought composite Nukeproof pedals last night and then got a £10 voucher from CRC this morning so I bought the ally ones as well. I’ll have to return the composite pedals when they arrive.

    Those Superstar El Plastiques are still £9.99 at On One I believe.

    Had various superstar pedals over the year, great shape and last really well… but that’s not my recommendation

    Another vote for Burgtec composites, had a pair for six months, just feel great (I know, not very descriptive) and holding up really well

    Superstars are proper grippy even with the short pins. But the Horizons on CRC are a good bet at the current price.

    They have the Nukeproof Neutron EVO at £19.99 as well, they look the identical shape to Exotics/Carbon Cycles.

    Raceface Chester if you want to colour match your bike!

    I tried Burgtecs a while ago and didn’t like them.

    Awesome, cheap, lots of colours and much better than Race Face Chester’s IMO, crap name though.
