Canfield Brothers has just released their super-thin Crampon Ultimate flat pedals. From the Press Release:
With the Crampon Ultimate Pedals from Canfield Brothers, you effectively lower your bottom bracket by 8mm/.25″ while raising your pedal clearance by the same. Never snag the front edge of your pedal again! These one of a kind pedals also allow for more efficient pedaling by allowing you to lean back and push through the normal “dead spots” at the top and bottom of your pedal stroke. The thinnest pedal platforms on the market also allow for more balance and stability because you are standing on the side of the spindles instead of the top.
