Date Reviewed: July 6, 2003

Strengths:    Cheap, good grip and come with replaceable pins.

Weaknesses:    Keep an eye on the pins because they do come loose. They carve up you're shins very nicely as well.

Bottom Line:   
They offer good grip even in the wet and because they're so cheap you wont cry when you smash them on a rock, step, park bench, etc.

Weaknesses:    Don't miss or your shins will hate you.

Bottom Line:   
A lot of bad things have been said about these pedals put personally in over 15 years of riding Odessey products I have no complaints about the pedals. I had my Twisted Pro's for one day and never even mounted them after I inspected and saw they were borderline crap with very little grip potential. It took me about a month to order and recieve Traps but I finally got 'em and I love 'em. I wouldn't ride any other platform. The set previous to my current Traps were the stock plastic platforms that came on my GT, and they caused me some serious pain. After a few weeks of riding with the plastics I was bombing a jeep trail and tried to jump a 10-15 ft rock garden. On takeoff my right pedal split and tossed my foot off. When the dust settled I had slid close to 100 feet, hit a cactus, a tree, and almost off a cliff, and "walked" away with 10% of my skin roadrash and some broken ribs. I'd rather impale my shins on traps than have a failure like that again at a "critical" moment. So far I have yet to slip off or bend my cage, but I know I will someday. When I do break these pedals I'm reordering more Traps.

If you have big feet like I do (size 14 4E+) You'll appreciate the fact that you can get more than half of your foot on the pedal if not more, and not hit your shoe on your crankarm.

For under $30 you can't beat these for value, you get awesome grip, and even my feet fit on these.

Maybe I got lucky and got a "good" set, maybe Odyssey's QC department is not up to par, or there was a bad production run of Traps that caused all the weaknesses that have been reported. Yes you can bend a cage fairly easily but I still have found no other pedal that compares to the grip and the sweet, confident feel of the Traps.

Strengths:    Tough
Good Grip


Weaknesses:    Heavy

Bottom Line:   
Odyssey Twisted Pro's
These are probably the greatest platform pedals around. They're just a little heavy though. The replaceable pins grips your shoes well. Remember to wear shin guards because the pins can cause some pretty gnarly gashes on you legs. Great for downhill and freeriding. Not so for cross country rides. Bottom line? ...this is a great product.

Strengths:    ???

Weaknesses:    crappy construction. throws pins like no other pedal.
cage sracks and blows out easily.


Bottom Line:   
these pedals suck. you should buy these pedals if you like spending money and then never even taking your bike out of the garage (otherwise you would break them). or if you are a stick figure that only weighs 10 ounces.

Date Reviewed: October 14, 2001

Strengths:    Cheap, replacable pins, grip well

Weaknesses:    Alloy is too soft

Bottom Line:   
Twist Pro's.....For the money I paid these were more than adequate. They grip to your shoe very well, and gave me very few problems, the bearings held up great too. The only problems I had were with a pin pulling from its thread, causing small cracking of the cage at the same time...but the rest of the pedal held up fine. That was until it came to pulling it off. It turned out that the pedal had crossthreaded itself in the same incident, and when I finally got it off the thread on the pedal was well and truly mangled, but the thread in the crank was fine (praise be). But the pedals were great when they were on the bike.

Strengths:    good grip
light
big platform


Weaknesses:    bad bearings

Bottom Line:   
this is on the Oddyssey Twisted Pro platforms

this pedal isn't too bad for 30bucks cdn. It's got a large platform for your foot to plant on. Nice grip from the pins, low profile so that you don't hit it on the ground too much. It's perfect for trials too and fr/urban. Nice and light. Clicking on the bearings have occured and just needed lubing. Slippery when wet. It also gets rid of mud easily.
