Super Wide, Let it Slide

Rating:
The Good:

Wide Body, Tacky Pins

The Bad:

Weak Axles

Overall Review:

These are great wide pedals, I have a big foot and these are very study feeling under my feet. The pins add great traction and are replaceable with the included spare pins.  I've seen these for upwards of $100, but I think I got my set for like $40 somewhere, great price if you can find it.

I ran these pedals on a Turner DHR, I had one instance when I was riding thru a rock garden and I smashed one of them on a step down, and when I rode away it felt funny.  I finished the trail and when I got home that night to take a look, the axle had cleanly broken inside.  Not exactly sure how, but I took the pedal to a bike shop and confirmed what I saw that the axle had cleanly broken inside the pedal casing.  It was an easy warranty, I boxed them back up and sent them to Easton and received a new set.

That new set worked fine and never had any issues.  Easton makes quality products and are based out of the community where I ride my bike so I appreciate that they take care of their customers and I will continue to buy other products they release

No complaints!

Wide, sticky, concave, neutral styling. Do everything pedal.

Kinda heavy, but not really

Overall Review:

Great all around, especially if you can find a deal.

Great pedal till they break

The Good:

Original DH Flat Pedal, excellent grip, huge platform, great pin placement

The Bad:

Very wide, need to adjust to the extra width or you'll end up clipping something HARD like I did. Bent axle and crank in the process. Easton do not offer any spares for these pedals. They are 5 rides old and now I must throw them away..

Overall Review:

Great pedal if you are happy to buy a new set if you bend the axle. (I am not) These are slightly wider than my other pedal which resulted in me clipping loads of rocks and tree stumps with them..

Good stuff!

The Good:

Great grip, fairly low profile, parts are available from any Bell/Gyro/Blackburn dealer, O-ring keeps the pedal from spinning, chicks dig them.

The Bad:

No color options, pins can break off.

Overall Review:

I ran the suckas for years...before a nut on the spindle finally cracked. I replaced the bearing a few times. They went from my main bike to my loaner. The are a little high profile in the pedal world now but still relevant. They have been around for so long a lower price would be a welcome feature. I was always able to get parts quick, any Bell helmets dealer can get you the goods.

Works until you work it.

The Good:

Big, thin body.

The Bad:

I bent an axle and replacement parts are straight-up not available. Great customer service, jagoffs.

Overall Review:

For the kind of loot they charge for these you can get a nicer, more serviceable product from a rider-owned company.
