    Strengths:    Take a beating. Who needs clip ons? Your shoe sticks like glue.

    Weaknesses:    Maybe a little thick, but that is a monor complaint.

    Bottom Line:   
    If you want to go platforms, this is the pedal. I've tried many, but I think my pedal of choice will continue to be Kore.

    Strengths:    loads of grip. lots of pins, and good screw shaped pins that really hold. no issues in the 4 days of riding I used it.

    Weaknesses:    too big - too wide - too thick. my bike has a low bb as it is and these pedals would just hit too much shiat.

    Bottom Line:   
    I could see using these on a bike that had high bb and if you don't mind pretty thick, bmx like, pedals. they sure would be just fine for hardcore dh. in fact w/ my five10s they were almost too much grip.

    Strengths:    big, wide and grippy. They feel solid under your feet

    Weaknesses:    slippery when wet and clay is these pedals' worst nightmare... if you ride a lot of clay stay away from these pedals they do not cope well, it will pile up arund the nobbies and makes them innefective you will slip off and crash....you have been warned

    Bottom Line:   
    great pedals unless you ride where there is a lot of clay... negative chili's for this...

    Strengths:    Big, strong and hold your feet in place.

    Weaknesses:    None yet

    Bottom Line:   
    I put them on my Haro because they offered a bigger platform for my shoes. They seem to work better than the stock pedals giving me control and stability. Your shoes stays glued in place. I have never tried to call KORE but evertime I have emailed them I always get a response.

    Strengths:    Big, Grippy, Strong

    Weaknesses:    none that I have found

    Bottom Line:   
    I have had these pedals for 3 years now and they have out lasted all the bikes I have owned. I raced downhill, dual slalom and 4x, as well as 2 trials events on these and I can't kill them! I destroyed 3 sets of cranks with these pedals(Shim XTR/Crap, Raceface Prodigy DH, Truvativ Holzfeller) And still they won't die! I've replaced all the pins except for one, but never even repacked the bearings on these. Every time I think about buying new pedals I just go for a ride and it reminds me that I don't need them. Maybe I never will?

    Strengths:    grip and stability, not locked in

    Weaknesses:    bearings

    Bottom Line:   
    these guys grip so well I've given up my eggbeaters. the staility and non-locked in feel makes me wonder why anyone not racing would use clipless. BUT, after only 6 months a dust cap was AOL and the bearings on the right pedal were worn out. this comes after less than 200 miles of riding the neighborhood roads at a 2 mph crawl with my fat dog, a 35 mile ride into Denali Park on an excellent dirt road and one 38 mile ride on Ressurrection Trail. These where sent to ProNet for warrenty repair. I was told this was not covered by the warrenty. To their credit ProNet repaired them- no charge. Thanks Clint. All within a week. With that kind of service you will keep customers buying your products year after year. BUT, if the bearings go out in 6 months I do believe I'll look elsewhere. Thanks again

    Strengths:    Best platforms I've ever ridden

    Weaknesses:    Is anyone at Kore ever home? No return calls, no one ever answers the phone, bike shops refuse to deal w/ them

    Bottom Line:   
    I wish I could continue to use them, but it looks like I can't due to unavailability

    Strengths:    Huge platform
    Incredible grip
    No damn cleats


    Weaknesses:    Scars on the backs of my calves

    Bottom Line:   
    These pedals are absolutely worth the money. I rode BMX as a kid and after 15+ years of not doing much riding of any kind, started MTB'ing about a year ago. I have resisted the whole cleat thing--that's just not natural. But with the amazing grip of these pedals, my feet never slip when it's important. I've gotten some good scratches on the backs of my calves from these, but that due to my own stupidity and is no fault of the pedals.

    THESE PEDALS STICK TO YOUR FOOT!!!! ONCE INSTALLED YOUR DAYS OF SLIDING YOUR FOOT OVER ON THE PEDAL ARE OVER THE FOOT MUST BE LIFTED OFF THE PEDAL TO BE MOVED.
    THE NEEDLE BEARINGS ON THE INBORD SIDE ARE HARD TO FIND TO REPLCE BUT SOME GREASE SEEMS TO HELP THM KEEP RUNNING. WHEN I GOT THEM THEY WERE THE BEST I KNEW OF BUT NOW I'M GOING TO UPGRADE TO WOODMAN SPIKY SPIKES (COOL STUFF) BOTTOM LINE THESE PEDALS ARE WORTH THE EXTRA $$$$

    Strengths:    Sticks to your foot...

    Weaknesses:    I had to replace bearings after 6 months...That could have been my fault...but getting replacement parts is a hassle. It took me 10 phone calls. when I finally got through the response was weak. I'm trying to get a spare set now and there doesn't seem to be anyone home at Kore.

    Bottom Line:   
    Great Pedal
    Customer Service sucks.
    If I could get parts, I would give 5 flamin chilis, but as it stands, I'm going to buy some pedals that I can get parts for.

    Weaknesses:    Pins though good are also your enemy if not wearing shin guards or motorcross pants

    Bottom Line:   
    It keeps your foot on the pedal. They are very strong and can take the abuse. If not given to me for free I would buy them. Use for DH or Dusl only due to weight
