Pedals come in all shapes and sizes. For the park/ramp riders extremely thin, lightweight alloy pedals are more popular. Offering a wide platform for maximum foot space when landing those flip whips over the box. For the street riders, the platform should be slightly thicker to handle the hits from the streets, those rough brick ledges and all the luc-e’s you’ll be doing. A thicker platform is subsequently heavier however it offers a more durable longer-lasting pedal platform.
