    “Decent Pedal”

    The Good:

    Weight, spin freely and overall quality

    The Bad:

    Traction pins and engagement

    Overall Review:

    This is my first attempt at riding clipless and I traded in my brother's old pedals for a set of these thru the deal Crank Bros was doing at the time - trade in any clipless pedal and get any set of their high end pedals for half price.

    I enjoy being clipped in for some aspects of riding and I can feel that they make pedaling a bit easier on the rougher sections where a foot would be hard to keep on platform pedals. I love the size of these with a full platform as they make clipping in easy. I found that sometimes I don't feel all the way clipped in and I have to unclip and re-clip to make sure I'm all Read More »

    I enjoy being clipped in for some aspects of riding and I can feel that they make pedaling a bit easier on the rougher sections where a foot would be hard to keep on platform pedals. I love the size of these with a full platform as they make clipping in easy. I found that sometimes I don't feel all the way clipped in and I have to unclip and re-clip to make sure I'm all the way in there. That is pretty annoying when you're riding and have to up-clip/re-clip when you're really fully engaged and just don't feel it. The traction pins, for me are pointless; even when backed out all the way they still don't engage my shoe and help out with traction. Another reason why I shun pedals with set screws as traction pins-they fill with dirt and have to be backed out almost until there is no thread engagement with the pedal and they fall out or tear the pedal threads out when struck. I also discovered that when you corner aggressively or whip your bike sideways off jumps, you're feet pop out and that is a nightmare and not very cool at all. It could be me and my lack of clipless pedal ninja skills, but it happens more than I care to enjoy. Unclipping to dab a foot down is fairly easy and not an issue and the color matches my bike to keep my whip lookin as fresh as possible, as the kids say. I'm not saying these pedals are crap, but for me and my lack of clipless skills, they are not a high scorer. The quality is outstanding and I have had no issues or problems with these pedals structurally. I just really enjoying platform pedals and would rather ride unclipped.
