Strengths:    Great grip, well built, handles clydesdales like myself (250lb) with no problems

Weaknesses:    A little heavy, dangerous if you slip off, bring needle and thread to sew yourself back up if you slip

Bottom Line:   
These pedals are great, I put a set of toe clips/cages on to prevent injury from slipping off, all around great

Strengths:    agarram muito bem

Weaknesses:    agarram tanto que se o pé não fica bem assente no pedal pode ser um pouco complicado endireitar o pé no pedal se o terreno for muito sinuoso por causa dos saltos

Bottom Line:   
usei-os numa mondraker finalist (para XC) mas vou colocá-los numa plunder r porque são excelentes
aconselho, têm um grip espetacular.

Date Reviewed: August 5, 2005

Strengths:    Hell, you could ride this with moccasins and it'd feel like they clip in. Incredible.

Weaknesses:    Impossible to adjust your footing while riding. Pins are _SO_ grippy that you have to pull your foot clear off the pedal to adjust. I have to disagree on weight, these seem noticeably heavier than the platforms I pulled off to replace. Bearings seem a little tight, but that could be new-ness.

Bottom Line:   
If you -can- slip off these, don't. Pins are really just machine screws with no thread at the last few mm's, which mean you could easily install a set of not-as-hazardous pins for terrain that you will slip off pedals more frequently on. They look mean, too.

Strengths:    Really grippy, replaceabe pins

Weaknesses:    none, to simple for error

Bottom Line:   
If you like platform pedals and you do downhill these will keep you glued. Almost feels like clipless if you have skate style shoe grip. Fairly light weight, but for downhill who cares? Has potentially to kill shins with 12 mm pins

Strengths:    These pedals grip like glue. The color selection is great. They will not break. The pins are nice and long and grippy.

Weaknesses:    Not really a weakness, but the pins are long and can really rip you up.

Bottom Line:   
These pedals kick *ss, and will keep you on your bike. They may hurt when you slip off, but that just teaches you to not slip off (you shouldn't be doing that). Everyone should have a pair!

Cool colours


Weaknesses:    Nastily long pins
Some crap colours


Bottom Line:   
These pedals are the best pedals I have ever ridden on, except maybe the V12 Mags. Offer loads of grip for those on a budget. But you gotta wear pads.

Date Reviewed: July 5, 2001

Strengths:    Pins are super grippy, pedal looks pretty damn swank on my bike, biggish spindle which hasn't bent yet (I can break just about any pedal, but these haven't yet) and generally rock...

Weaknesses:    pins will rip your shins bad but easily remedied by wearing some armor

Bottom Line:   
These pedals are among the grippiest damn flats you can buy. These are the dogs bollocks. Absolutly crazy. Great for trials, stunts, urban, and otherwise goofy stuff. These pedals are reasonably light, burly as hell, and have replaceable and very grippy pins. Sweet pedal.
