I have used these on my cross bike for quite some time. I needed another set for my mountain bike. When I searched for these on the web I found quite a range of prices, some as much as 2x the price. These pedals are super reliable, light and completely adjustable as the release pressure. If you have a bike that you rely on or just want weight savings, these pedals are top shelf. Another thing to think about is super fast shipping from this vendor!
These pedals have a great platform for stability, and silky smooth bearings for no loss of power. They have good float, operate and release smoothly, but yet have good retention for when the going gets rough. Best pedals I have ever had!
Replaced my road pedals with the XTR pedal. The XTR pedap is lighter, more reliable click and realease, and easier to use since they are double sided. Makes riding much more enjoyable, especially in high traffic arreas when not being able to click-in can be dangerous.
On eggbeaters for a long time, trying these for hoped easier clipping in than Candys during cyclocross.
- Had to crank down pretty tight to not come unclipped. Eggbeaters have lots of float before releasing.
- Don't shed mud as well
- Some sharp edges needed filing down
- Good compatibility with gym bikes
- Will probably last much longer than eggbeaters.
I used road bike pedalscleatsshoes and I hated them!!!! Could not walk around and when stopping at a traffic light the hard plastic cleats would slip on the asphalt and with road oil leaking from cars the cleats were very slippery. Switched to MTB shoescleats with solidstiff sole. Tried several different pedals and went to these and never looked back. Love these and would not use anything else. Not I can walk around and put my foot down without slipping and sliding. Shoes click right in these pedals with no problem. Light pedals!!!!!!!!
I use these pedals for cyclocross, mountain bike, and gravel. I race cyclocross in all conditions and have found these pedals to be the easiest to get in and out of repeatedly, and clearing them enough of mud, etc to keep going. I'm an average sized female with worn down knees and appreciate the adjustable tension, I simply cannot apply the same force to unclip as a strong male rider would.
It also took a whole lot of time and miles to wear out a pair of these pedals. Typically I do replace the cleats annually if I've trained a lot, but the pedals lasted years.
