The Triple Trap was arguably the most popular pedal of its day, and a best seller until modern day pedals of the last few years. When they were popular, Odyssey sold in excess of 1,000,000 Pedals. Triple traps were caged pedals, with removable cages, that could be replaced with OEM units or a slew of after-market cages (Trog, Crupi, etc) that still strike fear into to shins of those who used them.
In conjunction with Jim Cielencki, Odyssey designed and developed a new platform pedal from the ground up. The Cielencki Pedal, or JC for short. was based on the parallelogram shape made popular by Shimano in their earlier DX pedals. Each pin location, material, shape and curve was scrutinized and tested. The JC soon became known as one of the most popular BMX pedals of all time. It became obvious when almost every professional rider was using them, regardless of their sponsor. The end of the JC reign came from it’s rapid duplication by competitors who all had a JC version themselves. From the pins, to the end cap, to the graphics and colors, every feature of the JC had been mimicked by the competition. None were ever as good as the original.
During the end of the JC era and beginning of the Trailmix time an older model began to find its legs and take off. The aluminium Twisted Pedal was designed and introduced well before the JC, but it never lit fire like the JC pedal. The feel was good, but it was not until the Twisted PC came that the Twisted line really took hold. With the prevailing idea in BMX being lighter is better, a plastic bodied pedal made a lot of sense. No sharp metal pins to cut your leg. Lower weight than any alloy bodied pedal. Ultra low cost meant you could wear your Twisted PCs down and just get new ones, without much worry. It’s hard to grind your $100 pedals down a brick ledge knowing the damage you are doing to them (and the ledge for that matter). The Twisted PC is made from a proprietary recipe of plastic, that the followers have never grasped. Just because they are plastic and inexpensive doesn’t mean you don’t put as much knowledge and know how in to them.
Please Note: Due to the Italian design fitment is on the small side we recommend you try a size up for more comfort.

Design fantastico, durevoli, resistenti offrono un ottima presa; le dimensioni delle pedane forse sono fra le più azzeccate. Oltretutto sono a buon prezzo

These pedals are very good, I've had them on for around 8 months and don't even look worn, great in the wet and even better in the dry.

Absolutely terrible pedals, very little grip even when it's dry, their hard to get on as they have no Allen key hole on the axle,don't last very long and if you grind a lot they crack. The only thing good about them is that they are pretty cheap. Get the jcpcs, they are sick:)

I've had these pedals for 5 months now (got them in May) and they are still grippy, they last longer than shoes xD. the pins on the sides wear out quickly from the falls, and once that happend they are amazing. they don't stick to your feet but they have all the necessary grippyness whenever you need them.
there is 1 con though, they are a tad bit small.
