After two solid seasons...

Rating: Featured Member Review
The Good:

Amazing grip for the size, looks and design, durability (never have bent or replaced a pin after multiple hard strikes), and weight.

The Bad:

The $129 price tag.

Overall Review:

Function

These pedals have performed really well for me. I ride a Transition Patrol, which has the slack and low geometry. I was worried about pedal strikes with such a low bottom bracket. Initially I used some Straitline Defactos and did have more pedal strikes. After switching to the Oozys, pedal strikes have become greatly reduced. The thin profile is super functional in addition to looking great. I have wider feet (size 10.5) and wear five ten freeriders. That has been a great combo for me. The pedal has a large surface area that has done a great job at keeping my feet on. The two middle pins are enough for me, but I have heard some people complain about that. They have kept their grip over a long period in multiple climates and conditions. If you can hack the price these should be at

Durability

The durability has impressed me.  Spank has done a good job with these pedals.  The pins have held up to a lot of abuse.  None of mine have bent, even with the hard hits.  The color has also stayed looking really good over the past two seasons.

Awesome pedals

The Good:

Large platform, slim profile, durability

The Bad:

I have nothing bad to say about these pedals

Overall Review:

I bought these pedals a couple seasons ago after crashing hard due to a pedal strike on some diety tmac pedals. My favorite thing about these pedals is how large the platform is while also maintaining such a slim profile. I rarely have pedal strikes with these pedals and when they do happen the shape of the pedal allows them to deflect the blow nicely. These pedals have a good amount of grip, are tough, have a large platform, a slim profile, and a decent weight, what more could you ask for.

Quality pedals with a large platform and low profile

Rating:
The Good:

Large Platform, Thin, Durable

The Bad:

Large Platform, lacks some shape

Overall Review:

Right out the box, you can see and feel the quality in these pedals. The other thing you notice is the thin and large platform. For those with big feet, these pedals would be a great fit. For me, I'm on the other end of the spectrum. After a couple of dozen rides, I still find myself banging into things from time to time. These pedals can take some abuse! The thin profile also helps you clear obstacles especially on today's trail bike geometry

The only thing I don't like about these pedals is the flat shape. I prefer some curve for extra grip. Even with Five Ten rubber shoes, these pedals lack that locked in feeling for me. This is personal preference so if you don't mind a flat shape, I highly recommend these pedals
