VP-001 is designed to offer a large and flat platform with customizable pins but still achieve a feathery light weight. This pedal improves the feeling of power transfer because of its low profile body (8mm above the center of the axle) and large surface area. VP-001 also works with Foot Retention Straps. A Cromoly Steel Axle turns on VP's top quality LSL and Sealed Cartridge Bearing system providing smooth operation in all conditions for the long haul.

Great pedals. Looks and feels great. Flatness is ideal for ultimate wheels and unicycles. They do scratch easily when hitting the pavement, and their thinness makes a bit more fragile than the usual pedal. But still a great product.
So far, so good. These pedals are very light for how much grip they offer. The only downside is the size... the platform is significantly smaller than other flat pedals that I'm used to. I don't mind the small size for XC riding, but I wouldn't use them for DH or dirt jumping. I've also heard that they bend easily, and after looking at them, it's easy to see why; the material at the outer part of the platform is extremely thin and seems like it will bend easily in a bad crash or pedal strike.
Summed up: For cross country riding on flat pedals, they're hard to beat.
Yes, I would recomend this to a friend.

The only thing that i didnt like about these pedals is that the studs are a bit small but those can always be easily replaced and its not too big a deal. Everything else about these pedals I really like. They are super light and look good on my bike so im happy.
Love these pedals. Light, spin very well, sealed, price is great compared to other platform pedals, pins are too short, no biggie just find longer ones and swap em out. No regrets here own VP59s too both are great.
I've used these pedals for about a year now and they've held up well. They're light weight and have not given me any trouble.
They're not as grippy as pedals with larger studs, but they're also not as likely to tenderize one's shins. These are a good starting place for folks looking to upgrade from stock plastic platform pedals.
Excellent pedal for the money and Tree Fort Bikes is the place to get them! Pedals are light and smooth. Very thin and visually appealing as well. As with all pedals of this type, the "pins" are small allen set screws. They grip very well but the edges are SHARP! I have ripped my shins,hands,etc on them before. This time I took the time and hassle to take all 52 of them out. I held them with pliers and buffed the edges on a wire wheel. I then reinserted each with a drop of Loc Tite. Was it a pain? Yep. But now they still have great grip but don't make me bleed everytime I brush against them. With this slight modification I give them a 10 out of 10!
These are sweet looking pedals. I was about to drop $* for a set of Point One's but decided to try these out. So far so good but I can't testify on the durability. Did I mention they look really sweet and are very thin...
