Submitted by eshew a Weekend Warrior from Seattle

Date Reviewed: March 25, 2011

Strengths:    Cheap, grippy and relatively light

Weaknesses:    No selaed bearings, pins usually pop out and deform the pedal enough so you cant repin

Bottom Line:   
It's tough to find pedals this good for so little. Sure the bearings aren't sealed...(was upset that Azonic initially advertised them as sealed) just means if they get rough you need to re-grease (its easy). Yeah the pins can get knocked out if you bash a rock hard enough, same thing can happen on the pricey pedals. But if you're on a budget and are ok with losing a pin or two these are great lighter, grippy pedals. Ive had em for years and still dont hesitate to repurchase or recommend. Ride em hard!
I replaced my 1st pair after years of riding not because the pins fell out but because they got dull. Rounded off after years of happy riding. Pedals are still on the backup bike. In fact I found that cutting off the lugs on my favorite mt bike shoes where the pedals normally sat resolved the issues giving me a much more stable feel on all my bikes.

Submitted by Chris Bell a Weekend Warrior from Leeds, West Yorkshire, UK

Date Reviewed: March 24, 2007

Strengths:    Lightweight body, thick Cr-Mo axle and long grippy pins.

Weaknesses:    Lightweight body (it's not too hard to take the corners off), poor seals, would be nice if fitted with sealed cartridge bearings.

Bottom Line:   
There seems to be a lot of b!tching about the bearings here but the issue is the seals or indeed lack of an inboard seal altogether. Regular maintenance will keep them running sweet for years, just take it easy on rocks as the magnesium alloy body material is very, very soft. If you take a corner off you might lose a pin which does reduce the excellent grip. If you're a real pedal thrasher maybe you should be looking a lot higher up the ranks for some with the durability you need. For the rest of us these are a very grippy and comparatively light flattie.

Bottom Line:   
ive used them for two weeks, then headin home in a set of 4 stairs, the axe just bent... even the guy in the shop told me
" you ain´t going far with these pedals ..." moreover if you ride in a very rocky terrain, these pedals will melt away, magnesium is very soft apparently !

Submitted by Tripp from West Hartford, CT, US

Date Reviewed: July 8, 2004

Strengths:    Excellent grip, very light

Weaknesses:    Brittle, basic bearing setup

Bottom Line:   
These pedals have great grip (and they have left many divits in my shins), but they are also very brittle. I have already ripped several of the studs out along with the threads so that they can't be screwed back in. I wouldn't buy them again. It also uses the basic cone style bearings and they needed repacking after only a few months. I would say they'd be good for dirt jumping type stuff, but anything where you'll be bashing pedals on rocks I'd stay away.

Date Reviewed: March 7, 2004

Strengths:    light compared to other large platform pedals, strong axles, good traction, tought body, nice finish that adds good looks

Weaknesses:    DO NOT HAVE CARTRIGE BEARINGS!!! they have plain loose ball bearings instead

Bottom Line:   
Good pedals at a good price. They do not have the cartrige bearings like some places advertise. I dont really mind that, because plain ball bearings are super simple to service, just disassemble the pedals, pack it with some waterproof grease, reassemble, and you're good to go. I do that about every six months, and my pedals run smooth as butter all the time. And for the guy who said in his review that his pedals started coming loose on the axle, all you gotta do is snug up the nut that holds the pedal in place. Mine do not have this problem because I routinely check my bike and maintain it. Like I said at the beginning, these are good pedals, made by a good company, and can be had for a small price.

Strengths:    Look Cool

Weaknesses:    The bearings on these things suck!!! I mean these bearings wear after just a few rides. Plus the bearings ARENT sealed and the pins cant be replaced.

Bottom Line:   
The pedals arent worth the money. The bearings are total crap. After just a few months the pedal was rattleing around on the axle. I really like the look of the pedals and they function rather well but their lifespan is poor at best. Spend your money elsewhere.

Date Reviewed: September 24, 2003

Strengths:    Strong, I haven't killed them yet.

Weaknesses:    General crapness. Not very grippy (back of shoe slides around nicely, and they are crap in the wet too). BS advertising about cartridge bearings. Heavy (THEY ARE!). As they are crap, I consider the fact that I haven't killed them yet as a weakness too - when they die I will be happy to buy some better ones!

Bottom Line:   
DON'T BUY THESE. Azonic still haven't changed their lying "sealed cartridge bearing" advertising, which annoys me sooo much that I am putting another review up about how crap they are. Even though I like the look of their saddles, I'll never buy another azonic product just to spite them. Ha ha.

Strengths:    Quite grippy, good size, seem quite strong

Weaknesses:    Weight, bearings

Bottom Line:   
What is all this about "super-light" - these weigh A TON! Pick up some V8s and tell me I'm wrong. Also as said elsewhere on this page, they are not sealed bearing and I don't believe the body is made of magnesium either. Emailed azonic who said they would change the description on their website - that was atleast a month ago. If anyone knows what the american equivalent of the trading standards council is, give me a shout and I'll make a complaint.

These are crap - weigh about the same as a hippo, crap bearing, not that grippy either - get some V8s and don't bother with these - RIP OFF AT HALF THE PRICE.
