Super grippy and STRONG pedals with pretty resilient pins. The threaded pins are nice and tall, which provides a lot of grip especially with 5.10's...the platform is nice and wide, basically the perfect shape, width, all that ergonomic business.
Absolutely terrible bearing!!! what were they thinking? those little bastards are the smallest bearings I've ever pulled out of a pedal, only to be rivaled by Shimano DX flats. I total pain to regrease and repack...also its almost impossible to find the right size wrench to take it apart (needs to fit into the axle body). Bearing preload nut is useless! It's either loose or almost locked up. Naturally they dont stay tight and develop play within the first ride and need maintenance constantly. And to top it all off they're thick and heavy with those pointless interchangeable plates!
They're my favorite pedal, I'd never buy anything else but damn do they need to hire some engineers...Great performance, horrific maintenance, I hope they release those new 5050 prototypes soon because they're long overdue for an update...
