The Wellgo MG-1 Platform pedals are constructed with a die-cast magnesium body. 9 traction pins per side help to ensure your feet stay put when things get rowdy and the CrMo spindle spins smoothly on sealed bearings and DU bushings.
This is the 4th set of these pedals that I have purchased and I keep coming back to them because they are light, durable, and the price is right. I have used them in just about type of mountain biking (trail, all mountain, downhill) in the US, Europe, and Africa, and they have always performed flawlessly. Since my kids are into mountain biking also, the competitive price is great for outfitting the whole family with bikes and gear.
These pedals have a high quality black finish and very smooth spindle bearings. I wanted a good platform pedal that would work with Power Straps. By adding washers as shims the combination works quite well.
I have purchased 4 sets of these pedals because they are durable, light, and priced competitively. I have used them for a variety of riding styles (trail, all mountain, downhill) on three continents and they never let me down. With my whole family riding, the price helps me keep us all outfitted.
This is the 4th pair of these pedals that I have purchased and I keep coming back to them because they are durable, light, and priced right. I have used them for a variety of riding styles (trail, all mountain, downhill) on three different continents and they have performed great. I use them on me and my sons bikes 'cause the price is right.
Yeah, I don’t need to spend more...these are the punk rockers in the pedal world...
I’ve used mg1s because of a review I read several years ago...they emphasized bang for the buck...I agree 100%...last year I thought I’d go with a lighter mg5 but realized it felt goofy and too large u see my feet. I gave em away and put on some old mg1s and was pleased. These take serious punishment and have never required me to repack or any other repair. I ride frequently and the nastier the better. Don’t spend a billion on pedals...yes they are magnesium and really light.
Got these on sale and I have no complaints. The weight is good and the amount of pins don't leave you wanting more. The pedals are grippy on soft soled shoes like Five Ten. I haven't run into any issues with the bearings. I've also had my fair share of rock strikes and other than the scratches, the pedals have been holding up fine.
PROS: Easy To Install, Lightweight, Durable, Attractive Design
These pedals came stock on my Trek Session 9.9. I was happy that my bike came with pedals, however they just aren't enough. They seem to be ruggedly built, but the traction just isn't there. They are a good pedal for that casual paved trail ride or the errand runner. But they are just too slippery in the dry or wet conditions for freeride/downhill mountain biking. These aren't bad pedals. They just aren't up to par for any type of aggressive/technical mountain biking.
I'm use to clips on my pedals. I saw the hole and thought you could put clips on these. You can't. And even if you could you probably couldn't get your feet out because of the pins. If you are use to flat pedals theses are good.
