2017 Revision is Much Improved...

Rating:
The Good:

~ Still retains 250g weight ~ Rubber pads improves shoe/pedal interface ~ Fully Serviceable internals ~ Improved bearings ~ Stiff titanium spindles ~ Hex head end cap ~ Improved with Igus-type and Enduro cartridge bearings

The Bad:

~ Car payment price ~ Plastic kick plates destroys itself

Overall Review:

Crankbrothers finally listened to all the buyers of the first, 2014 iteration, which had the seriously-flawed, needle bearings. The #1 enemy of this pedal is not those nasty, trail boulder crossings - its your own cleats. Each attempt to clip-in under harsh conditions(muddy, missed clips) slowly smashes the flimsy plastic kick plates into oblivion, which slowly creates play among the alloy pedal body halves and leading to separation. Do the Factory, "SPA" rebuild annually, to offset this.

Yes, they are pricey - but every year you own, use and rebuild these pedals will increase your returns over similarly constructed, disposable cheaper ones.
