Product Description

A low-profile, lightweight, wide aluminum body with double-concave platform. The svelte design makes it perfect for trail bikes while chromoly axle and bottom loading hex traction pins ensure it can take abuse and perform double duty on your DH rig. All of the Race Face styling and performance expected from the Atlas line.

Strengths:    Very sticky, looks nice, nice wide platform, lightweight, lots of colors to choose from.

Weaknesses:    Durability. After only 3 short XC rides the large bearing in the left pedal is completely siezed and Race Face will not warranty it. Kind of disappointing that a pedal at this cost isn't backed by a warranty so shortly after purchase.

Bottom Line:   
I was in love with these pedals at first, everything I wanted so I was willing to pay a premium price for them. Large platform, grippy as can be, light weight, sharp looks, easy to service, you name. Sadly the bearing freezing shortly after getting them put a damper in my enthusiasm, especially as I have to buy a $50 rebuild for them after only three rides. That places these pedals at over $200 only a month after getting them, pretty lame.

I had hoped components built and tested in the PNW would hold up to more abuse than just a few xc rides, not sure I trust these now for the bike parks. I'll rebuild them just so I can keep using them, but I would not recommend these to friends anymore.

Strengths:    Ideal combination of pedal profile, grip, weight, quality and no-play cartridge bearings that spin perfectly.

Weaknesses:    none

Bottom Line:   
finally, a platform pedal for all mountain riding with solid all around engineering and design. The only pedal (and I've tried dozens) that combines the perfect combination of weight, profile, grip and no-play cartridge bearings that spin perfectly. Before these came out, I bought the Spank pedal that came in 1st place in Mountain Bike Action. They stink; they are heavier, have a more awkward profile and the 'bushings' have huge amount of slop/play that I can't tighten. Buy the Race Face and end the hunt for the perfect platform pedal.
