Strengths:    Strong and solid feeling. Large platform for your feet. Very sticky. Feet never slide on them.
Bearings still going strong after 300 + miles on them.


Weaknesses:    A tad overweight.

Bottom Line:   
I purchased these pedals from one of the LBS' in my area.

Paid around 25 bucks for them and they are worth every penny.

I only with they were lighter.

Strengths:    Very strong
Looks good
Comfortable
Awesome grip


Weaknesses:    Heavy

Bottom Line:   
These pedals have given me a little more confidence then before. They are a very solid pedal with lots of grip and the concave platform fits my shoe perfectly. The pedals are a little heavy but its well worth it. I will be riding on these for awhile.

Strengths:    Tough

Bottom Line:   
I have the Josh Stricker Magnesium Sealed version. Light enough, way tougher than I expected. Put them through hell in the skateparks all winter... after 6 months they've finally needed a cleaning... took 5 minutes...

I'll never try another freeride pedal.

Date Reviewed: March 6, 2009

Strengths:    very sturdy, strong, better then my stock plastic pedals. the reason y i bought these pedals because my stock plastic pedals were already wearing out. its a awesome set of pedals for my Mongoose BMX rip cord, im plan on keeping my BMX for a long time. i recommended for someone who does bmx tricks and make your bike lil more fancy just like the expensive bikes out there, retail price from 249.00 to 350.00.

Weaknesses:    the plastic cover came off and the screws came off, i went back to the store they replace it for free and it looks pretty good now. make sure you check the plastic cover on the pedals.

Bottom Line:   
the bottom line is, its a awesome prdals not bad at all just make sure when you buy these sets make sure the plastic covers dont come off.

Submitted by Chris a Downhiller from Colfax, Wisconsin, USA

Date Reviewed: November 19, 2007

Strengths:    Strong, great looking, the pegs really keep your feet on the pedal. replacement pegss, Comfortable, cheap

Weaknesses:    The plastic cap on the side of one of the pedals came off and I lost it.

Bottom Line:   
Great pedals for people who need something strong. I don't do hard beating but these have lasted great so far. The pedal itself hasnt bent but I broke off a pin (thats what hitting cement does to those pins) Recommended.
I wouldn't get these if you want to grind, unless you don't care about the pins

Strengths:    very strong. comfy as a good shoe. grippy and easy to maintain.

Weaknesses:    hm none

Bottom Line:   
i have been using these pedals on all my bikes for about well since they were introduced into the bmx dirt jump scene and i fell in love with them. i love the feel of the contoured pedal. i have never bent a set but i have trashed the bearings but then again years of oilless use will do that.

Date Reviewed: May 19, 2007

Strengths:    Non-slip, Beefy, and Strong

Weaknesses:    Can't replace the pins

Bottom Line:   
Great platform pedal...takes abuse and does not let your feet slip. I haven't had any trouble with these pedals and I haved used them for two years. Sure the pins are not replaceable, but I guess when they finally wear down I will get another set...I am all about platforms that grip!
If you like big, beefy platforms that will rip the crap out of your shins, these will do the trick for sure!

Submitted by Klank911 a Racer from tempe,az

Date Reviewed: March 2, 2007

Strengths:    hold grip well for about a week or two

Weaknesses:    axles bend easy-I just need to find a pedal that can take 200lbs of 6'8"-these are not that pedal-these bent within the first 3 weeks or street riding

Bottom Line:   
I don't like these pedals-the pegs DO break fairly easily
If your lame and like BMX (J/K)-these are your pedals for sure. I ride with a BMX'er and these would be great for him-not for me.

Date Reviewed: January 1, 2007

Strengths:    great strong pedals, big surface, grippyest pedals i have ever used, look sick, cheap

Weaknesses:    nothing other than the fact that they 'tenderize' your shins...i have got holes in my shins to prove that...so i reccomend that if you get these pedals make sure you either have, or are goin to get some shin gaurds

Bottom Line:   
if u have any trouble with slippery pedals...get these! they r great. but just b prepared 4 sum nice gashes/holes in ur shins if u dont wear shingaurds-i need to get sum myself.

Submitted by Bryan a Weekend Warrior from Colorado Springs, Colorado USA

Date Reviewed: October 5, 2005

Strengths:    Strong
Durable
Matches concave on shoes
Cool design


Weaknesses:    Pins not easily replacable (do come with a replacement set, but I guess in order to put them on you'd have to break off the old ones)
Bearings arent sealed (damn good for non-sealed bearings!)


Bottom Line:   
This pedal is absolutely solid. I've laid, thrown, and slid my bike down on gravel, cement, and hard dirt and the sides arent chipped or bent. The paint job has only come off in those cases. After long use, the elevated "Primo" text paint in the center of the pedal wears down, so you see the bare shiny metal. Easy-to-paint pedals too, I've repainted mine a few times.

Date Reviewed: February 21, 2005

Strengths:    Tough, Great grip/feel, V good price, Nice colours.

Weaknesses:    Finish can wear with use??

Bottom Line:   
Tough, good looks and low $$$. Conditions are hot and dry here so I'm not expecting the unsealed bearings to be much of a problem. I've been riding them to work daily since I got them and they also have taken some good rocks hits on trails but the finish is holding up fine, maybe because I don't chuck my bike down when I get off? Grip is very good, never had a problem with slipping. I've got my eye on another bike and it will be leaving the shop with a pair of Primo's on it. Great product .. 5 hot ones.

Strengths:    Great Pins
Strong body


Bottom Line:   
I really like these pedals. I have a couple of pairs of these. One on my DH bike and another on my hardtail. I went messing around the other day going down a flight of stairs w/ no problem. Switched bikes w/ my friend and he was using the Shimano MX-30. Feet kept slipping from the pedals. I forgot how great they were since I've been using them for years.
