“Simply Amazing Pedals”

The Good: Super thin pedal body Aluminum construction with machined pedal body surface Threaded traction pins provide ample amounts of traction

The Bad: Pedal pins can fall out if not loc-tited or kept snug (replacement pins included though) Pedals develop a bit of side to side movement with heavy use

Overall Review:

These pedals are great. I recently did a review on the Crampon Magnesium pedal, and while these are slightly heavier, they performed better for me. I really like the machining on the pedal body - it gives me the extra traction I just couldn't quite get on the magnesium pedals. The shape of the pedal body itself is amazing - it is flat enough that you don't feel like it is a convex pedal but still gives you a very thin leading pedal edge.

Overall, these pedals are my go-to favorites and get ridden more than any other pairs of flats I own. Definitely worth the money.

“Crampon Ultimates”

The Good: Great pedal.. Thin, light, strong grrrrippy!

The Bad: DU bushings develop loud clank once they wear down, easily rebuilt though and back to normal. Pins need to be snugged down as they can fall out if not tight.

Overall Review:
Really nice big platform, nice and tight to the crank arm. Convex design is very comfortable to ride on, they seem like they cradle my foot better than others.  Grip on these is unreal!  When I first got them they were TOO sticky so I had to remove some pins but with some wear they became just right.  Also very light, they work well on everything from the DH rig to the DJ.

Best flat pedal I've owned!  Light, strong, slim and stylish, another winner from the C2 team!

“Great pedals for the price”

The Good: Lightweight / Thin Price Great grips

The Bad: Pins need Loctite Will rip your shins up Bearings / Bushings don't seem that great

Overall Review:

These pedals are incredibly thin, reasonably light, and come in at a great price point. They hold on to your feet really well, but allow you to adjust easily when needed.  I've found that I climb just as fast with these pedals as with clips because you can pull up so far into the pedal stroke.

The badness: the bearings or bushings don't seem like they're sealed that well and have developed a small amount of play in a relatively short amount of time.  They also don't spin as freely as I would have hoped.  Be warned tho, you need to Loctite the pins in place.  I probably lost half of the pins in the first two rides and didn't have any pedal strikes.  Luckily Canfield supplies you with extra pins so it wasn't that big of a deal.

Great pedals, love the color, still using them on several different bikes.
