    The Good:

    Colors, price

    The Bad:

    BIG, not low profile, HEAVY

    Overall Review:

    I have owned the sealed and ball bearing alloys. I used them mostly with skate shoes. The ball bearing models would break about every other month but they were on street bikes so that is to be expected. Sealed lasted much longer. The big body can take a beating but is bulky and the dual concave design lends itself to soft skate shoes. When they are on a park bike with the softer sole shoe my feet took a beating. My 5.10's didn't bend to the shape as well as my other shoes. Grip is good and price is good. There are similarly priced, more modern pedals out there that would probably be a better choice.
