The best DH/Heavy duty


The Good: These are the best pedals I have ever had for DH. Big platform and good size/number of pins means your feet do not come off even without 510's. Very reliable and come in probably the widest range of colours.

The Bad: Nothing at all

Overall: The Price sounds alot but when I think about how good they are and how long they have lasted compared to other pedals I have had then it doesn't seem so much. I have had my burgtec's 4 yrs now and they have had a hard life. for comparrison I had a set of Crank Brothers 50/50s and they lasted 3 months and weren't ridden anywhere near as hard.

Standard Shimano


The Good: Reliable, easy to service and reasonable weight. Good size platform with plenty of grip once the pins have been swapped out for the long ones which are suplied with the pedal.

The Bad: Nothing really bad I did snap an axcel on my first set but that was after 1 and a half years of DH and some big huck to flats. Perhaps a little thick for some and they come with the short pins in and have to swap them out for the long ones which are provided in the box.

Overall: Excellent when you consider the price, Standard shimano product really not the lightest but very durable and works exactly as it should.

Worst pedals I've had!


The Good: Errr colours

The Bad: Bearings wore out quicker than any pedals I've had before. Axles constantly became loose (nearly every ride) and eventually after about 3 months would not tighten up. Grip from the platform was also poor compared to the pedals i have on my other bikes possibley due to the steped design.

Overall: Do not buy a set of these pedals. I have DX flats, Burgtec penthouse flats and DMR Vaults these are all far superior to the Crank Brothers and are a simalar price and far more durable and much grippier.
