Your budget will dictate how fancy you wanna go.
Not sure what your riding style is, but having a nice solid feel under your foot makes a difference, even if you're just cruising around. Any flat pedal will be an improvement over those stock ones.

I personally got Wellgo BO87U Flat Pinned Platform. Someone was selling a set for dirt cheap and i couldn't pass on it. They have been holding up amazing so far.

Maybe goj can comment what he has on his bike. You can see it in the first post on his bike.

On my mountain bike I have fairly expensive aluminum flats called Vaults by a brand called DMR.

Great flat pedals can be found in a nylon composite material for pretty cheap if not looking to spend too much. Most come in a wide variety of colors too. All retail around $50 but sales can definitely be found. A few:
-Raceface Chester Pedals
-One Up composite pedals
-Deity Deftrap

Thanks folks. What is the “why?” behind flat pedals? It isn’t obvious to me after reading a bunch about them.

Heres a pic of my new bike (two weeks old) next to my car prior to my last singletrack ride. I have been wanting toi get into MTB for a bit , finally pulled the trigger on a Trek Marlin 4 - seemed to be a good entry level bike with decent equipment and specs. I must say, riding a "nice " bike that fits you properly is a whole diff game than a bike off the shelf at walmart!! Looking forward to putting some miles in this year!

I can not ride a bike if my shoes are not attached to the pedals, so I run Crank Brothers Egg Beaters (I am an old school MTBr though). I tried flats and we did not get along.
