Strengths: Clip in/out is easy and deliberate, no fuss. Great price, decent weight.
Weaknesses: Resin outer cage (pedal platform) broke/cracked in less than 3 months. It only took one good as bonk I was cranking through Camp Tamarancho single track that had a few scattered 12-16" rocks around. They are supposedly replaceable resin cages, but I can't find anywhere that carries it in stock.. Will have to order and wait..
Great functioning, reasonably light pedal set that allows you to wear a regular sneaker on a casual cruise or a solid platform to stand on if you need to clip out when navigating through something more technical.. Bail out! :)
I break everything, but I see that I am not the only one that has broken the resin cages on these and then had a hard time finding replacements..
