Product Description

At 115mm wide, 17mm thick, and 400g this pedal is a win. There are 11 pins per side, and you have the choice to run them long or short. The High load DU Bushing and Cartridge bearings make for a great feel that will last a long time.

Strengths:    big platform, well built, good bearings, grippy

Weaknesses:    3 pins come loose / fallen out

Bottom Line:   
had these pedals 11 months riding mainly dirt jumps / 4x and bmx tracks on my Santacruz Jackal so no rock strikes or anything like that. two pins are loose and will not tighted as the thread in the pedal or on the pin has gone. and one pin is missing completely. That is my only complaint although quite a major on i think, other than that the pedal is very grippy, perhaps to much grip when wearing 5.10 shoes.

Strengths:    Smooth operation.
Large, stable platform.
Great pin placement and durability. Lots of rock strikes and no mashed pins yet.

Weaknesses:    Price. These pedals are spendy but well worth it.

Bottom Line:   
I purchased these pedals to go with my Fatback build and I'm glad I spent the money on these pedals. The big platform supports my feet very well. My entire sole is covered by the pedal. I wear size 12 and haven't had an issue. I have had more rock strikes with these pedals, but paying attention to your line can actually reduce that. I came from spd clipless and wouldn't go back for the world. My feet hardly ever get numb. Quick dabs are easier and starting from a stop is also easier. No fumbling around for the engagement. I have yet to get the bad shin bites, but I have been nipped. It will happen, but the overall stability, lack of foot pain and more comfortable shoes make all the difference in the world.

Strengths:    Flatform Size, Weight, Pins, Colour Range

Weaknesses:    Pin Colour is taken off after 1 ride. Not really an issue but make me wonder why they went to the effort.

Bottom Line:   
The bottom line is that them pedals work really well and I cannot honestly see myself returning the the Straitline Pedals anytime soon.
While they are not cheap I think that you get an amazingly robust product that should last the test of time.

Kona Super Jake vs. Pivot Vault?

Hey guys, I'm in the market for a new cyclocross bike. I'm looking at the Kona Super Jake and the Pivot Vault. Which would you pick and why? Also if you can think of any other cyclocross bikes that you think are better, please let me know. My budget is up to $4,500. Thanks!Read More »

Pivot Vault as road bike

I'm wanting to buy a Vault but really want to use it more on pavement or dirt roads than on trails. I don't race and don't want to. I just want to be able to use it for fitness purposes. That said, will the Stan's rims allow me to put enough pressure in the tires to run on the road? The Stan's site ... Read More »

Pivot vault geometry

I'm thinking of getting a cyclocross bike that would be comfortable for occasional all-day riding on the roads. Could anyone who's ridden a pivot vault tell me what they thought of its geometry? Is it upright or would it start hurting after more than a few hours?Read More »

Pivot Vault is go!
