Wellgo MG1 Magnesium Platform Pedals
Money-to-weight this is probably the best value item you can buy it you want to save weight on your bike.
- Now available in Powdercoated Black, new Pearl White, XTR Grey, orange, purple or green colour.
- These sealed bearing pedals have an original DX feel but have a slightly larger surface area.
- Pins are replaceable.
- Light magnesium body, although not a strong as aluminium. If you break pedals or do pedal grinds we'd advise an alloy pedal instead.
- These pedals are amazingly light - they weigh less than half the weight of Primo Super Tenderizers.
- 9/16" (for 3 piece cranks) only (standard MTB size)
HD Wide platform and grippy. Low cost and well made
Mr Barrett Pretty good so far. They're light, not too expensive, and grip well. Taken a few stone strikes, so scratched and chipped paint would be expected,. Given the choice, I would have preferred a non-painted pair, but in my case, performance is more important to me than show, so consider it as 4.5 stars.
Jacko Grippy, & light. What else do you need?
Mr Johnson This is my second pair, this time I got the gray which looks great with my XTR drivetrain. Quality materials for the price, sealed bearing that seem to last. The MG1 Mag is LIGHT, one of the best deals for a platform padal.
David Lightweight, great value. Haven't had them long enough to comment on durability but paying a lot more for pedals seems silly get these instead!
Mr Benison Excellent pedal, light and very grippy, combined with my 5/10's feel totally locked in.
Mr C This is the second pair of Wellgo MG1 Magnesium Pedals I've bought from Merlin. The first pair are going strong and looking good so these were the obvious choice for my new bike. Very light with excellent grip on Shimano AM41shoes.
Paul of Plymouth Good flat pedals at a good price & very happy with them. They suit my riding style just fine .. have DMR pedals on other bikes, and these Wellgo ones are equally as good in all respects.
Aussie Scott These are the second pair of MG1 pedals I've owned and will continue to buy them. They are durable, grippy, and lightweight. Best value for money pedal around.
Mr Orange Pros: High quality materials for the price - Cro Mo axles should last and Magnesium alloy bodies are really light. 9 pins per face keep your shoe stuck to the pedal, giving you nearly as much power as clipless in muddy conditions. The fact that the sealed cartridge bearings are themselves hidden behind a thick, flexible outer seal means they should last ages and even when they do eventually wear, can be replaced without having to trash the pedal. Much better design and quality than the genuine V8s they are replacing. Delivery was incredibly quick. Cons: Paint colour has started to wear off after only 3 rides - wish I'd have gone for the silver ones now as they are soon gonna look pretty tatty. I went for orange to go with my neon orange Orange Five but they are not so vibrant in real life and are more of a dull brownie-orange Overall: Fantastic quality, grip and weight for the money, shame about the paint
Mr Civit Good flat pedals, light and grippy and suitable for xc, just what I'm looking for and a bit more!
Tobias Got the black ones as a replacement for my Specialized Hardrock stock pedals. Even with shoes that have a rather hard sole these guys grip like nothing else! Looks the part and were easy to fit.
chris Look good and quite light. Perfect for wifes bike!!
jg These are a really nicely finished pair of pedals. They are super smooth in use and are holding up well to all that I have thrown at them so far. They are lighter than the generic 'off the shelf' pedals that came with the bike too. Also, top marks to Merlin for the speedy delivery.
Mr Knight Really light pedals. Also feel slightly wider than DMR V8s and V12s
Mr partington This is a 2nd set of these i bought for my sister, i've run them myself now for about a year. They are super smooth, very light and pretty strong as long as you aren't hitting rocks too hard/often. The main feature we like is the width of them, just far more comfortable with a wide soled flat shoe.
Mr Wilson Smooth and grippy. What more can you say?
Anon lightweight and feel great beneath my FiveTens...
