Wellgo V8 Copy Pedals (Long Term Test)

I have used these on my ‘do it all’ trail bike for over 18 months, it gets ridden at least once a week throughout the year. These pedals have never let me down. They offer good grip, good durability and look decent! They are £5.99, yes bloody £5.99!!!!!! So cheap you can buy load of them and fix them to random objects around the home.
Like many people, i loved the shape of the old DMR v8 & v12, these pedals are a direct copy of them. (The new shape DMR v8 & v12 are completely horrendous – so thin that your foot rests on the axle and provides absolutely no grip even with the long pins!)
They have outlived my old Shimano GR500 Saint Pedals by over a year. They have outlived my old DMR v12 pedals by 6 months. They are proper quality and get jet washed all the time (with zero shits given). The pins are nice and long and work well with waffle sole shoes or Adidas. They feel bombproof and reassuringly heavy. Don’t be put off by the reflectors shown in the stock photos, they come off easily with an allen key!
The shape is suitable for a shoe size 11, loads of grip and easy to find the pedal after a dab. Bearings run nicely with a mid pace so wont be spinning around looking to catch a shin. These are really very good and for £6 they are an absolute bargain!!

I have absolutely no idea why anyone would spend £120ish on pedals, an expensive pedal will not make you faster!

Buy Wellgo’s, be happy, save money and spend the money you have saved on something that actually will improve your riding like better tyres, cockpit setup or suspension tuneup!
