Strengths:    Well i suppose the platform itself was a good size, but cant think of anything else good about them.

Weaknesses:    Bush / bearings used are just rubbish. spindle design is very poor. wear that turned into so much play that the pedals slopped from side to side. Quality control rubbsih and so is the design. I do have some idea of design as i work in engineering field.

Bottom Line:   
After just a short time, about a month of downhill use, these pedals became so badly worn that the side to side play became downright dangerous. I angrily sent them back to the supplier. the supplier told me that the distributor reckons that they are not for dh use, but no mention of this anywhere, especially not on atomlabs website. I forced a replacement set of pedals and got the previous pimplite version. Happy. Except I went to install them and what the heck, the left hand pedal will not screw onto the crank, the thread is clearly not the correct profile. I tried them on raceface and shimano xt cranks but no go. I have no trouble with other pedals on my cranksets, enduro bike and dh bike. These are new, not even a foot on them... so what will i do. after i simmer down, i will demand a new left pedal or spindle that will fit into a crankset before sending anything back to me.
I will never ever buy anything atomlab again, not only are their designs in practice total rubbish but their qualit control is equally crap. Go elsewhere for your hard earned money folks!

Strengths:    grippy
large footprint

Weaknesses:    bushing is junk!
loctite set screws or lose em

Bottom Line:   
1st off, the pedals pictured are pimplite's not pimp's. this review is for pimplite's. after 2 months of use (~500 miles) and a very muddy ride i decided to break em down and re-pack em. well drive pedal was good then we get to non drive pedal. upon removal of the PITA bolt, i noticed deep grooves on the inside of the pedal where the inboard bushing should be. i guess i made it disinerate? well they are now in transit to UC for replacement of the same POS. I just want my hard earned money back! i see a pattern here. wish i could post pics.

Strengths:    Strong, Good grip

Weaknesses:    Bushing are rubbish. pedals were scrap after 2 months use and have been sent back. and alen key bolts are very difficult to remove to service.

Bottom Line:   
Waste of money a pedal of this price id expect to last. the DU bushing they use work fine in suspension linkages but are completely hopeless in pedals. Have chucked my 7 year old azonic pedals back on as i wait for a replacement.
