Submitted by RobCee a Cross Country Rider from New Jersey to New Zealand

Date Reviewed: March 11, 2010

Strengths:    Sealed bearings, strong frame, good looks. I have been riding them on and off for over 5 years now with no real signs of wear. They have taken some big hits and a lot of little ones.

Weaknesses:    Standard platform traction pins are too short, and consequently they are easy to slip off of on really rough rides.

Bottom Line:   
You can't really ignore looks on anything anymore, and I really like the style of these pedals. I will say that at US$55 they are a pretty good price on the surface, however to get the best performance out of these you must replace the stock traction pins (cost me an extra US$15 for 50 pins from a local fastener shop). The stock ones are M4 X 0.7mm pitch X 6mm long. There just isn't enough pin sticking up to really dig into the soles of your shoes, so it can be easy to slip off. I have since replaced all the pins in mine with M4 X 0.7 X 8mm long pins and my feet stay locked on the pedals with a good sole.

4 Chili value rating because I had to put extra money into them to get them working right. Would have been much closer to 5 had they come stock with the longer pins.
4 Chili overall rating because again, they don't perform as well as some US$25-30 pedals stock.

Strengths:    Good looks, good grip.

Weaknesses:    Bearings self destructed after approx. 1000 miles of easy/moderate terrain use by a 156 lbs. rider.

Bottom Line:   
DO NOT BUY! These pedals look good, but do not hold up to regular use. Azonic customer service did not botter to answer my e-mail (any answer would have been acceptable). If you need pedals that will last longer than a year, look elsewhere.

Strengths:    They look cool

Weaknesses:    Grip, bearing longevity, weight, thick

Bottom Line:   
I used to run Kona Jacksh!t pedals. These pedals were given to me as a tip while I was working at the shop. I thought, "cool, sealed cartridge bearings." So I gave away my Konas and put these on my bike. Big mistake.

These pedals do not grip well. My shins can show it. Wet, dry, didn't matter.

The pedals do not have an offset platform either. This may have been part of why I slipped off of them so often.

Though the bearings are sealed cartridge, they don't seem to last. Mine started developing play after just a couple of months. And the end cap cracked soon after.

So... I gave them away.

I guess if you wanted platforms for XC or more casual riding these might be okay.

Strengths:    Look killer, grip very well, durable.

Weaknesses:    Cut my legs up. Maybe I need shin guards for these things...

Bottom Line:   
Awesome pedals. Definitely a good investment. If you don't have shin guards, look out is all I can say. These things will tear up your legs, just brushing against them scratches you. Chicks dig scars though, right?...

Strengths:    Good looking, light, good grip

Weaknesses:    smallish platform

Bottom Line:   
I prefer platforms and thought that these would be a good fit for my new Heckler. So far they grip great and provide a solid pedaling platform. They also look damn good on the Heckler.

Submitted by Rob a Cross Country Rider from NorCal

Date Reviewed: November 2, 2007

Strengths:    One-piece casting. Cool, industrial aesthetics. Pins replaceable - Pins are essentially Hex key screws. Confidence-inspiring grip. Light weight.
Come in silver (actually it's an unfinished metal color) or black.


Weaknesses:    Not a huge platform area. Could do with being a tad bigger.
Will flay your shins to the bone given the opportunity! (But if the sight of your own blood concerned you, you wouldn't be here.)


Bottom Line:   
Was reluctant to spend anything over $30 on a pair of pedals, but at the end of the day... when the fat lady sings... all things considered... when the votes are counted... I know I'll be happy with these.
They look the biz, and if you're like me and don't want to go the ballet shoe route (in order to bolt yourself to a 28lb, 30mph piece of aluminum) these will help prevent unnecessary testosterone leak.

Strengths:    - light weight
- good grip
- not too bulky
- look sick


Weaknesses:    - a little bit narrow

Bottom Line:   
Great pedals! For them lacking in wideness, they make-up for in having extreme grip. I've yet to get smacked in the shins with them yet, and I hope it never happens. They are lightweight and will give your bike a stylish look.
