Strengths:    Strong, easy to click in and out, best mud shedding pedals, light

Weaknesses:    price

Bottom Line:   
After about a season of use, I can give these pedal top mark for quality and reliability. Value is severely crippled by the price of the product, but to build such a light pedals that will withstand off-road abuse - you pay for what you get. Weight limit has been increased to 195 pounds, which gave me more confidence to try them on my bikes. I weigh exactly 195 and was a bit skeptical. Raced the hell out of them, banged them a few times in rocky terrain, sometimes it was pretty violent... Honestly, after the last hit I would not have expected them to survive - but they did... took them apart to check for potential damage - found none. Springs are still tight as day one, bearings are smooth, no play anywhere. Easy maintenance and simple design. Crank Brothers support is second to none. Kudos!

Strongly recommended.

Strengths:    light weight and consistent entry and release

Weaknesses:    none

Bottom Line:   
I have a pair of 4Ti Eggbeaters also. The redesign is definitely better. The pedals spin smoother and there is no play in between the cleat and pedal.

Strengths:    Lightweight, design

Weaknesses:    Pricey, unreliable

Bottom Line:   
I am a 165lbs rider, which is much lower than the 187lbs rider weight limit. I use this pedal only for street ride, never offroad/trail ride.
On my third trip, the pedal start to make a "ticking" noise. I brought it back to the shop, they said its a loose spindle to bearing. They replaced the bearing. Two rides after that, the ticking noise came back.
This never happened to my xtr pedal nor to the much cheaper eggbeater sl.

Definitely not worth the money. Its ridiculous for the price I paid.

Strengths:    Consistant feel for cliping-in and out, light weight, solidly holds my feet on the pedals for control and power transfer, float

Weaknesses:    None so far.

Bottom Line:   
I have been considering switching to the Egg Beaters for years and finally made the jump because of frustration with inconsistent relase from my SPDs and difficult entering SPDs when riding in snow, with mud on shoes, etc. So far I have been pleased with the Egg Beaters, they definately clear mud better than the SPDs and I estimate they will also clear snow and ice better as well. After my first ride on them I felt they released more consistantly than SPDs and still feel that way after a dozen or so rides--I belive this has to do with the design and how the cleat engages and releases from the pedals, the springs are only to hold your cleat in, the release is not dependent upon the spring as with many other designs. So far I feel more confident riding the Egg Beaters than I did with the SPDs. I often ride rocky terrain and so far, other than a few scratches, the Egg Beaters are holding up solidly.

Anyone using the new egg beater 11's?

I'm looking for actual experience with the new CB Egg Beater pedals. I know they spin better on the new bearing systems, but how is the engagement? I've heard from several early testers that they were "not as solid" or had "more lateral play" when clipped in. I love my EB pedals for their light w ... Read More »
