The Deftrap boasts 10 color options, 10 grippy pins per side, and comes in at an impressive price that truly makes us question why we should spend more on a set of pedals.

Great as usual

I've put it through the wringer

Everything expected! Great quality. Orange color is awesome!!!!! Grips are exactly that! Grippy and comfy for some shredding! Peddles are big and feel locked in!

Best composite pedal on the market for the price. Great grip, as good as my Chromags. Was looking for a cheap composite pedal, that I was going to put on my old bike. I ended putting them on the new bike because I liked them so much.

3rd pair says it all

I've put it through the wringer
5' 6"

I love the big platform, the grippy pins, and the colors pop. It's a huge value, but the performance is great. I have smallish feet and used to rock Chester pedals. I like these more and the big pedal has been great for practicing crankflips and foot offs.

Good if they work for you

I've put it through the wringer

I use these pedals for about 1 month they have great grip and a large platform. Ultimately I went back to my e13 alloy pedals which have better concavity and feel. Probably my only criticism of these pedals is that they tend to have a wide stance feel and that's okay for downhill riding but when doing trail riding and pedaling it can feel a little bit too wide. I like to have my feet a little closer when pedaling. But for their price they are excellent. I'd say they are more suited to gravity than trail riding.

Awesome pedals

I've put it through the wringer

They have loads of grip, are a awesome price, and you can't feel the spindle so they are comfy for long rides. The plate forms are large too. I got the first set for my mtb and now I need a second set for my bmx lol, I'm a heavy rider too and the plastic is very strong!

Everything I want in a pedal

I've put it through the wringer

So far, the deftrap has left nothing to be desired. The pedals feel super balanced and grippy under my feet, and hold up to regular crashes quite well. Also style points come baked-in if you choose a fun colorway. Given that my personal bar for a great pair of pedals is not super high, these were exactly what I needed to inspire confidence on my rides.

Great fit, comfortable, but messy?

I've used it several times

Don't know if mine are defective but the grease out of one pedal keeps coming out. Hope it's not defective?!?!? Other than that the fit and feel are great!

Solid new plastic pedal

I've used it several times

So far I am loving these! A couple rides on some particularly steep trails with zero concerns about slipping a pedal. Huge platforms (even with my size 13 five tens on them!), good spin, plenty of pins to keep you stuck to the pedals even with my beat up old shoes. My only complaint is the two little fixed plastic pins on each side of each pedal: already snapped off a couple of them despite no rock strikes. The metal ones more than make up for it but would be nice to be able to replace all the pins. They seem tough despite being light. UPDATE: took these down a particularly rocky trail and banged them several times against the rocks: pedals still look basically new. Metal pins are all holding up great, body looks practically unscathed, and I stayed on the pedals.
