There are some brilliant flat pedals on the market right now and we’ve handpicked five of our favourite so you don’t have to trawl through pages of product or reams of reviews for the best to buy.
Spank Oozy Trail Pedals
With a lightweight and low-profile platform, these trail-ready Spank Oozy pedals are shaped to shrug off high-speed strikes and have 18 pins per pedal for maximum grip.
Their strong and sturdy build quality combined with the exceptionally durable chamfered edge platform is actually the same technology used in the brand’s Spank Spike Freeride and Gravity range of pedals, but in a lighter package more suited to all day rides on the trail.
Blackspire Sub420 Flat Pedals
A real fit and forget pair of pedals, the Blackspire Sub 420 models offer plenty of grip, are built to last and are available in lots of different colours.
Made in Canada and CNC’d from aircraft grade aluminium with a slightly concave body to increase grip, they’re a lightweight choice whether you’re hitting the trails, downhill track and everything in between.
DMR V12 Magnesium Flat Pedals
DMR’s V12 Magnesium pedals are a bit of an icon with flat pedal riders – and for good reason. With the redesigned version DMR have created a larger platform for increased foot stability but slimmed it down too, reducing the weight and ensuring better ground clearance. All while still having retained their strength and durability credentials, making these pedals the ideal choice for aggressive all-mountain, enduro and downhill riders.
Nukeproof Horizon Pro Sam Hill Downhill Flat Pedal
Designed in conjunction with the world’s greatest flat pedal rider, Team Chain Reaction Cycles racer Sam Hill, the Horizons offer excellent control, durability and grip in all weather conditions.
They’re built to be the ultimate enduro riding pedal, offering insane amounts of grip, with a nice and wide platform and are durable enough to last for miles. These pedals are fully serviceable too.
Race Face Atlas Flat Mountain Bike Pedals
The Race Face Atlas Flat pedals have a wide, double-concave body, and 10 pins per side offering excellent grip. They use a fully sealed 4-bearing design, so are long lasting for miles of riding.
With a chromoly steel axle and bottom loading hex traction pins, they’re durable too – so will fend off any abuse from trail obstacles.
