I purchased a Norco Aurum 6.1 three days ago. It came with some basic pedals. I'm looking for something really decent, strong and grippy. I don't want to have cheap, crap pedals on a higher end bike. I was thinking of something with titanium axles. And I'm not interested in concave pedals. Just straight flat. I'd be curious to know what you guys have, and what you've had that you would definitely not recommend. I'm happy to spend around $150 AUD. Thanks in advance.

Canfield crampon Ultimates. .... Top of the list....slightly convex and excellent grip while being very thin. Also great ground clearance. Another option from them would the Crampon classic flat.... flat and real thin but downhill strong.

Yeah, Saint pedals are solid and reliable (easy to service too). I also run a pair of ACROS AFlats and they've proven to be very nice. My biggest requirement is having the pins thread in from the inside of the platform VS the outer. That helps keep the threads from getting destroyed when you smash a pin on the rocks, and makes it a LOT easier to get that mangled pin out...

another vote for Canfield Crampons. They are incredible. I have mangled mine against rocks many times, and they are a tiny bit scraped, and that's it. Zero broken pins. Zero problems. If I ever do break a pin, I'm not worried about getting it out of the pedal either. Both ends of each pin have a hex key hole, so you will always be able to get them out and replace them. But after the beating I've given them with no pin breakages, I don't anticipate needing that feature often. And they are incredibly thin. That makes a real difference when pedaling; you can feel it. It's more efficient. Saint and similar pedals are incredibly thick in comparison. I can never go back to them after Crampons. Worth every penny and more.
