These are on all of my bikes. Yes you need to rebuild them from time to time but worth it for a super simple, easy entry and very light platform for xc racing.
These were a no brainer. Priced right. Lightweight. Rock solid pedals. I mostly bought them for the price and weight but like the feel and ease of entry when riding on trails or dismounting often.
Needed something for the Cross bike and read all of the reviews I could find. Have ridden many miles and two mid-fest gravel races.
Pedals performed flawlessly in the mud. Smooth and secure.
I actively race master level mountain bike and cross. These are the only pedal I use and have had great success.
I like these pedals, but, was surprised at how easy they bend if you hit a rock. two of the four wings are softer metal.
A better value would be the eggbeater 3, which has all four wings made of stronger metal, and better bearings.
I bent mine after 2 hours of riding, and fortunately, I could bend them back into shape, but, I have older eggbeaters that I have used for years that have been mashed against rocks hundreds of times and never did bend.
O the plus side, crankborthers offered to repair them, and even better, to replace the weaker wings with the harder metal for a small upgrade fee. Nice.
