This probably my fourth set of Candies over the last 8 or 10 years. Overall, a great pedal. Big enough platform to get a foot on, rebuildable, and easy to click in and out. Cleats give just enough float. If I have one constructive criticism its that the cleats are very soft metal and wear fairly quickly.
I give only 4 stars for value because ALL pedals are overpriced.
Ive been running the plastic version for a while, which I love but they seemed to wear out and need a rebuild in about 6 months. These feel much more solid without a terrible weight penalty. I also like the adjustable pads that allow you to customize how tight or loose the flat part of your shoes are to the pedal. If you like Crank Bros, youll love these
I've been using the Candy pedals for mountain biking for years and this latest edition is an awesome upgrade. They provide a stable platform, easy entry and release and love the edition of the traction pad. Highly recommend for XC and trail use.
