Strengths:    Cheap
Somewhat durable


Weaknesses:    Thick and bulky
Heavy
Not as strong as you would expect


Bottom Line:   
I bought these for my secondary mtnbike which is usually my loaner and backup. Put them on it last summer and they seemed to be ok. I let my skinny young cousin ride it. But this summer it needed a tune up so I took it in and one of the pedals was broken. I dont remember where I bought it and its not worth to complain but one of the skinnier platform edges cracked in half in a downward fashion. Im not sure how it broke and its probably not a typical product flaw but it sucks so Im writing it up.

Strengths:    solid build, grippy

Weaknesses:    heavy

Bottom Line:   
good pedal for the price and your feet won't slide around. But if they do slide off because of a bad landing...your shins are gonna be mince meat! They are heavy, however built like a tank I'd expect the extra weight. I went to clipless pedals after only about 6 months or so with these. I don't plan to sell em though. They work great and will go on my spare bike whenever I get one. Would be good to put on a DJ bike if ever I decide to build one...

Date Reviewed: June 9, 2011

Strengths:    Cheap product that looks pretty good

Weaknesses:    These are one of the worst pedals I have ever rode on. I have rode on two different pairs of shoes just to make sure it was not the shoes. Don't let all the studs on these pedals fool you. I haven't had these for too long but every ride I have gone on, I pedal slip at least 2 or 3 time. One thing is for sure though when you pedal slip it sure does dig into your leg. These pedals have terrible traction.


Bottom Line:   
If your looking for a pedal that is well priced, looks like it will stick to your shoe like glue, and don't mind bloody legs at the end of the day, then these are the pedals for you.
I never write reviews on anything, I am just so disappointed in these pedals that I feel I need to share my thoughts.

Strengths:    Smooth, Sealed,and Great grip.

Weaknesses:    None

Bottom Line:   
I have these on both of my bikes. Bottome line is they are a great pedal for the money and are easily to tear down and service after months of dirty, wet pounding. I have been truly satisfied with the way my feet stay on the pedals on some of the roughest sections of trail I ride weekly. Great product!

Strengths:    Great feel, and ergonomics, grip your feet well, I use them for cross country and have made the podium at 3 races and cant speak to their quality enough, thats right, no clipless.

Weaknesses:    Cant think of any

Bottom Line:   
Good price, great seals and good quality bearings, correct shape for your foot and inspire a little more confidence than other pedals I have used. I have used these pedals for a couple years now and are still as smooth as the day I bought them, and they rebuild easily on top of it all, if it is ever needed.

Weaknesses:    They turn ur calfs into ground beef

Bottom Line:   
These pedals work great. Stick to any skate shoes like glue. I have heard from some people that they break if you hit them on rocks but thats ok cause there cheap as dirt! Also they cut up the back of ur legs just happened to me it kinda looks like I got clawed by a bear! Great for downhill, freeride, or even cross country.

Strengths:    pretty cheap and it is very durable. only has scratches that dont affect it at all.

Weaknesses:    the grip is okay and it is not super compared to easton flatboy's. the grip could be better

Bottom Line:   
its a great pedal and it is still working like new. there are no problems other than i am not satisfied with the grippyness. once i used easton flatboys, the easton pedals were about 30% more grippy which is alot and they hurt way more if they hit your shins. overal its a good pedal for the money considering the eastons are almost double the price.

Date Reviewed: July 31, 2007

Strengths:    Strong, Very Grippy, and they're quite large which is great for people with big feet like me. The studs don't seem like they'd break very easily at all.

Weaknesses:    Definatley not quite as grippy when they're wet. They can cut you up quite easily...

Bottom Line:   
I have only been on these pedals for a few weeks, but so far I love em. The guy I bought them from quite literally told me that if they hit your shins hard, they're going to rip flesh from bone. So either suck it up and get a few scars (plus carry a first aid kit)...or wear shin guards. Besides that I'm really happy with these for the price. I've banged these off a few rocks quite hard and the most that happened was the black paint chipped off a bit. The studs seem really tough.

Strengths:    cheap, sealed, grippy

Weaknesses:    WEAK, first ride, clipped on a rock and ripped the pedal nearly in half. CHEAP potmetal

Bottom Line:   
If you're playing around town and don't plan to ride offroad, jump, or anything of that sort these pedals are great for the money. If you are serious at all dont plan on them lasting long at all. I wasnt even missing a stinkin stud, the whole perpendicular section to the bike on one end of the pedal ripped off. rediculous. but now sun ringle is giving me some MAG OCTANE's for 30bucks

Strengths:    Extremely gripy, inexpensive, light, replaceable pins, Looks awesome on a MTB Value!

Weaknesses:    Non so far. Maybe the paint comes off when you scrape a rock or two.

Bottom Line:   
28 pins keep you firmly planted on these peddles. They have great mud clearance and you can use them with any shoe you own. (but for bear feet lol OUCH), Big contact area, pins seem indestructible!

I bought these when my Wellgo cage strap ins broke to the spindle in a matter of a week. Have had these 7 months and the only thing I have broke or damaged are a few rocks, logs, and sidewalk curbs. OH and my shins a bit. Grip light glue and takes a bit to get use to having such a large surface that you have you foot on. But other wise perfect for the price and anyone who likes a big grippy peddle.

Looks awesome on a MTB. Fits in well too, though I have some BMX ers ask me were to get a par. Lol I like them and have ordered another 2 pair for my other bike and as spare.

I hear that the cross bar brakes but hasent happened to me and I have hit may things that has nearly flipped me with them.
