- which flats??
How are Vaults rubbish? Wide and thin platform. More grip than nanos. Fully serviceable. Decent weight. Look good. The only drawback is price. Best pedals out there in my opinion. Certainly better than nanos which I ran for 18 months before my Vaults (which are up to about 14 months so far).
That said, if the OP wants cheap, nanos are a good pedal.Posted 4 years agovondallySubscriber

I’ve got vaults and saints. Both bought heavily reduced at my LBS.
Vaults are 2 years old and been hammered all over Europe and are still perfect.
Saints have just done a month on the DH bike in the alps and at no point did I feel the desire to switch to the vaults. All the grip you need but the platform is much smaller and hits the ground less.
Both worth the reduced price in my opinion. Just take the plunge, it’s not the kind of thing you buy on a regular basis.Posted 4 years agoMoeSubscriber
Love my Saints (on my SS), not much other experience though with flats apart from the cheap Wellgo V8 copies so bound to be improved experience. Just bought some proper V8s for the Vampires bike. Looking through the reviews it’s hard to see why you need to spend anymore?Posted 4 years agoNorthwindSubscriber
I’ve tried Vaults as a possible upgrade from my Nanos and tbh, didn’t think they did anything better. The size might be a bonus if you’ve got massive feet but I kept catching them on things. Grip felt much the same (ie, both have tonnes, and more than enough).
So, got 3 sets of Nanos. Only criticism really is that the mag bodied ones don’t hold their pins too well.Posted 4 years ago
