Thin is in when it comes to pedals these days but most thin bodied pedals on the market are much too expensive for the average cyclist. When we set out to make our new Gates Slim pedal we wanted to build a pedal that offered all the advantages of the higher end thin bodied pedal that you could buy without having to fork out over half your paycheck to bring a set home.
The Gates Slim combines the best of our popular Gates BMX platform pedal and our thin bodied/sealed bearing Mesa plaform pedal into a durable and affordable package. Cr-Mo spindle, rebuildable loose ball bearings, impact grade nylon and a super thin profile should make the Gates Slim an easy choice for your next pedal. The Gates Slim pedals are ideal for any commuter/city build but is also great for BMX riders looking for a durable, thin and affordable plaform pedal. Oh year, they're also compatible with pedal straps making them great for the daily commute as well.

I haven’t ridden too far, the pedals looked good for the price, they didn’t spin too freely with my hand but felt ok on the bike, but since they are loose bearings, they should loosen up over time, overall happy with the purchase!
Good traction when wet; very light and most importantly they are very durable.
Very comfortable and affordable id recommend these to anyone who asks
My pedals were wearing out and at the same time I was having a problem with a foot. This required the pedal to have a specific width measurement but not TOO wide (clearance). I liked the popular slim style, but I don't like pins and the higher cost. I saw an ad for these in the now defunct "Urban Velo", loved the look and checked the Fyxation site for spec and price. Ordered immediately! Pedals were exactly what I wanted. After a few hundred miles one pedal started to bind. Contacted Fyxation. NO problem. Pedals were replaced with new pair. GREAT customer service! Now - thousands of miles later, they're working great and are THE pedal for me. They don't break the bank and do their job exceptionally. What more could you ask for? Maybe not for everybody - but consider giving them a try - I doubt you'll be disappointed.
Originally bought these in green to match an old bike I was refurbishing. They are incredibly smooth and were very easy to install. Love them!
