Yes, yes, yes and yes. Oh, you mean all at the same time!! Lol.

Best bet is to get last years model on something. I have a pair of Crank Bros 50/50 that were dirt cheap and so far great pedals with 5-10 shoes. If you have regular shoes, the ones with screw in hollow pins are best. They cut into the shoe (and your skin) for extra grip. imo that is doing it wrong. Hence, I believe the best pedals on the planet are Straitline, but the grip will be higher with normal shoes if you have standard hollow pins. The size of the platform leads to greater comfort as well, if doing drops and such, not as imp if you are doing xc/am stuff mostly.

I was going to recommend the Dark Cycles Arachnids but they only meet 3 of your 4 requirements (missed out on cheap).

What about some of the Welgo, Sun Ringle, DMR or Atom Lab Pedals. All have decent models with Pins under $50. Weight around 540 grams.


Of course, all the above are great, but these...have lights! Now you can DH at night and never have to worry about missing a pedal due to darkness.

+1 on the Arachnid.

Everything you want, except cheap.

Do they blink if you're making a turn?

I have been running Atomlabs for years (Trailkings, Aircorps, Quicksteps, and lastly, the Lab Limited pedals). The Aircorps were my favorites but eventually self-destructed on me.

Right now I am running some NC-17 Sudpin III pedals and have been very happy with them so far. They are light (385g), have a nice wide platform, came with replacement pins, the bearing/axle configuration seems a bit more durable than the Trailkings or Aircorps, and only cost me about $70.

Oooh! I wonder how the green would match the Knolly Green.

Would you have a linky? I've been looking for these, hard to find online other than Chainreactions; they want too much for them there.

Sorry, meant 70EUR not $. I bought them here in Germany. There are a couple German websites that ship internationally and have way better prices than CRC on the NC-17 stuff. CRC wants 88 EUR! Thats insane!

I run the Shimano DX's with 5/10 shoes. As was suggested from numerous buddies.
I was clipped in before I tried this combo and never went back.
